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.

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.

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
