File listing source

Has anyone got source code for a file listing program that will allow me to do the following.
1) quick sorting procedure/function
2) Allow me to choose what files to display eg:- FileExts:=(txt,doc,diz,me), So that it will show files only with those extensions.
3) Long file name handling would be a bonus but optional.

I know this may be a big ask, But any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
Renegade.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

uses WinDos, Strings;

const
 Directory: String
          = 'C:\';
 NrOfMasks = 3;
 Masks: array[1..NrOfMasks] of String
           = ('*.bat', '*.sys', '*.exe');

var
 SearchRec: TSearchRec;
 X: Integer;
 PC: PChar;

begin
 GetMem(PC, 256);
 for X := 1 to NrOfMasks do begin
   StrPCopy(PC, Directory + Masks[X]);
   FindFirst(PC, faAnyFile, SearchRec);
   while (DosError = 0) do begin
     WriteLn(SearchRec.Name);
     FindNext(SearchRec);
   end;
 end;
 FreeMem(PC, 256);
 ReadLn;
end.

This is sorted for each extension separatly.  I can sort it for all at once if necessary.

You can easily add size, attr. etc. (see TSearchRec in help)

Thankyou for your help Odie. I should be able to use the routine in a dandy piece of snippet I found in the SWAG's to do what I want to do.
