Unique pattern mask for FindFirst
Posted on 1999-10-26
This might be a silly question, but when using FindFirst and FindNext I need to have a unique type of pattern mask.
The ap I am writing has to search through multiple directories searching for files which do not contain a numeric character (0 - 9) as the second character in the filename.
90% of the files will look like A100363_.tif or T100363_.tif. They are files which have been processed, but the rest of the files are named with people's names. Nearly all the names are in the middle of the Dir listing except for those after and including the letter T.
Is there a way to find just the files named after people? I do not want to copy them to another folder to do it.
