Delete files using a list in txt

Recommended Posts

Hotdogwater

I've never pulled names out of a text file before. What I am trying to do is write a script that would pull the path\filename out of a txt file.

I already have them all in a text file. Then go down the list deleting them.

Like the list was

c:\documents and settings\bob\file1

c:\documents and settings\suzy\file2

c:\documents and settings\john\file4

etc...

you get the idea. Filedelete (next path and file in line)

Thanks

Is there a reason you can't use a .ini file? It would be much easier.

For those who are asking questions, look in the help file first. I'm tired of people asking stupid questions about how to do things when 10 seconds in the help file could solve their problem.[quote name='JRowe' date='24 January 2010 - 05:58 PM' timestamp='1264381100' post='766337'][quote name='beerman' date='24 January 2010 - 03:28 PM' timestamp='1264372082' post='766300']They already have a punishment system for abuse.[/quote]... and his his name is Valik.[/quote]www.minikori.com

Reading an INI file is much easier as it is very organized. So when you state "I already have them all in a text file.". This is where you should be using an INI instead of a text file. Best part...you can find the INI functions in the help file!
