Help!
I want to find all the TXT-files (*.txt) in my TEMP-directory (c:\temp) and then copy them into another directory.
How can I fix that job? Please send me the source to do it...
Thanx!
SvR.

Don't remember exactly, but go to the Delphi pages and find a component that searches for files. Then give it parameters and copy the found files using the Delphi file routines...

I don't want to use any components, I want to have some code to copy (for example) all the *.txt -files in a directory. This must be possible with some (I hope) simple code...

-Components come with sources. The copyfile procedure (or some other name) in Delphi is simple too. So just look at the source of the component to knwo how to find all files...

you use  FindFirst, FindNext functions and "CopyFile" winapi.
( Matvey: not all components come with their source :-)

Here goes a sample proc.
//copies all files with name source.* to destn.* IF no EXT is given.
//otherwise copies source to destin.

procedure TMainForm.CopyMultipleFiles(source, destn:string);

var s1, s2 : string;
    Attr, Result : integer;
    SearchRec : TSearchRec;

begin;
if pos('.', source) = 0 then Source := Source + '.*';

Result := FindFirst(Source,  Attr, SearchRec);
While Result = 0 do
  begin
  s1 := ExtractFilePath(Source) + SearchRec.Name;
  s2 := ChangeFileExt(Destn, ExtractFileExt(SearchRec.Name));
  if not CopyFile(pchar(s1), pchar(s2), false) then
     begin;
     ShowMessage('Error Copying File: ' + S1);
     exit;
     end;
  Result := FindNext(SearchRec);
  end;
FindClose(SearchRec);
end;
