I have been trying to find some sample code for recursive delete - I know it can be done via FindFirstFile and FindNextFile, but I do so hate re-inventing the wheel - anyone have a good example?

It is the same as recursive find with a slight change to what is done with each found file. :rolleyes:

yeah, but I can't even find any decent recursive file code that works properly :)

actually, I might have found one, working on it

I think, that is called 'exercise', not reinventing the wheel. It is too easy not to be "decent recursive file code". Try it. I remember MASM32 includes an example code with similar idea - only it was not for deleting. If you think you don't have any clue, that would be a good starting point.

A quick search of the board pulled up:


Searching for "file recursive" was very fruitful.
