Description: DIFileFinder for Borland Delphi 4/5/6/7 is a component to search the file system for files and or folders matching (or not matching!) particular attributes and / or name patterns. Pattern syntax includes standard wildcards as well as full regular expressions. DIFileFinder suports inclusion as well as exclusion filters.
Unlike most file finder components, DIFileFinder does not use events nor does it build lengthy file lists. Instead it immeadiately reports a single file or folder at a time. This new architecture guarantees a maximum of flexibility using a minimum of resources only. Simply call the "Next" method each time another file entry is required. "Next" returns True for each file found, and the component can then be queried about the file details.
Full folder recursion is provided, and directories can be skipped at any time to avoid recursion if not required. DIFileFinder features filters for files, folders, all file attributes (include and exclude) plus full path and file name filters. Descendant components may easily implement their own filtering mechanism by simply overwriting the "Validate" method.
The DIPcre package includes full Html Help plus a full featured demo project. It is fully functional with no restrictions. Commercial and Source Code licenses are available for a small fee.
