Ignore files in root dir

Postby LPrendergast » Tue Oct 02, 2012 3:54 pm

Hi All, I have a directory with several subdirectories and files in it. I want to be able to retrieve files from the subdirectories while excluding all files in the root directory, how can Ido this? see below for example
the black text are the directories and the blue text are the files, these are all under the same parent directory.
How can exclude just the files in blue?

Here is one way you can do this:

Just change the "InboundFolder" variable at the end of this script to the folder you want to read (recursive). This will read all files in the InboundFolder and below... but, only print the status of the files that are not in the InboundFolder.

Code: Select all
<project name="RootFile Test" mainModule="Main" version="2.0" threadSafe="false">

   <module name="Main">

      <createFileList label="Get Local FileList" fileListVariable="FilesToProcess" numFilesFoundVariable="NoFilesToProcess" version="1.0">
         <fileset dir="${ InboundFolder }" recursive="true">
            <wildcardFilter>
               <include pattern="*" caseSensitive="false" />
            </wildcardFilter>
         </fileset>
      </createFileList>

      <forEachLoop label="Process Files Found" itemsVariable="${FilesToProcess}" currentItemVariable="ThisFile">

         <setVariable label="RootFolderFile" name="RootFolderFile" value="${ Concat( InboundFolder, &apos;\&apos;, ThisFile:name ) }" version="1.0" />

         <print label="Compare" version="1.0">
        <![CDATA[
================================================================================
** File Path Compare **
${ RootFolderFile }
${ ThisFile:path }
================================================================================
          ]]>
         </print>

         <if condition="${ ThisFile:path ne RootFolderFile }">
            <print label="Not in Root Folder" version="1.0">
               <![CDATA[
================================================================================
** This file is not in the Root Folder **
${ ThisFile:path }
================================================================================
          ]]>
            </print>
         </if>

      </forEachLoop>
   </module>

   <variable name="InboundFolder" value="C:\MyFolder" description="Root Folder to Read" />

   <description>Check to see if file is in Root Folder</description>

</project>
