i have to write a java console application, which will be able to search...
the input parameters will be:
- search path (where to search)
- name of the file, which will be searched
the problem is, i dont know, how to do it...i know i have to use java.io.File,
but it doesnt help me a lot, because i am quite new to java...
so my question is...could someone give me an example of search...
for example, i would like to search for file "asdf.txt" in directory C:/Temp/...
thanks in advance...
For a simple directory search you cal use the list() method of the File class. E.g.
when you instatiate an instance of File like
File aDir=new File("c:\\tmp\\");
String  names=aDir.list();
the loop through the strings returned. For each you then do a new File
and check if that one is a directory... recursiion (uhuuu)
i have thrown myself in reading of documentation, and got the point of the search...i am using listFiles(), because its easier to manipulate with paths...
i'll be back
