Subject RE: Direcotry Delete based on pattern

I dont know if a task exists as such.

But maybe you can use a few of the existing tasks combined to do this.


PSEUDO-CODE
Can you not get the name of each directory and parse it into an int.

If the parsing goes fine, delete that directory

If parsing throws a FormatException or something on those lines, leave that
directory alone.



Either way, I would appreciate the solution you turn to.

Regards

Madhu

Subject: Direcotry Delete based on pattern


I have a load of directories, all with numeric names (e.g. 123, 734,
231) - hundreds of them.

I need to delete all these directories, while leaving any directories
with non-numeric names intact.

I thought I could use a patternset, but that won't do it. Any
suggestions?
