  • Directory filtering: using FindFirstFileEx ?

    When scanning directories, it would be very nice to be able to do some directory filtering. I think this would increase the speed significantly. As far as i can see this kind of filtering is not possible with DIR$ or the FindFirstFile-API.

    The FindFirstFileEx-API can do it, but is not implemented in Win32api.inc because of the enum's. Has anybody found a way to use it anyway?

    Regards
    Peter

    P.S.

    Where can i find the new version of win32api.inc ?

    Latest Inc (like I understand) -
    http://www.powerbasic.com/files/pub/pbwin/win32api.zip
    But do not search FindFirstFileEx here (I think, because it's not supported in Win9x).

    PS. If you are interesting in another (could be not better) variant of Win32.Hlp look
    ftp://ftp.cs.virginia.edu/pub/lcc-win32/win32hlp.exe

      I posted code to walk directories in the sourcecode section.
      It's probably not what you looking for (speed), but it does do extention filtering :-)
