Subject Is there a way to search a directory structure?
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2001 15:26:25 GMT
Hi All,
Can this type of thing work for searching a dir tree?
I cant get it to work?
I'm trying to search for a file anywhere in a dir tree and set a
property
if that is there.
Like the available task, but I can't see how to get it to search a
complete tree.

I've tried:
<available resource="my.file.txt" type="file" property="found">
  <classpath>
    <fileset dir="${search.root}">
      <include name="**"/>
      <exclude name="**/*.*"/>
    </fileset>
  </classpath>
</available>

And also with filesets, but I'm stuck. Any ideas?
Alan.

Thanks,
I got it to work by using, but it copies files with no extension...

    <copy todir="${foobar}"
          includeEmptyDirs="yes">
      <fileset dir="${foo}"
               excludes="**/*.*">
      </fileset>
    </copy>
I tried:** **.* **/* but they don't copy anything...
Thanks,
Alan.

Hi,

Just a guess (don't have time to test it for you right now), but try:

    <copy todir="${foobar}"
          includeEmptyDirs="yes">
      <fileset dir="${foo}"
               excludes="**.*">
      </fileset>
    </copy>

Cheers,

Matt

I am interested in copying a whole directory tree from A to B but
not the files, only the structure.
Any ideas?
