I am writing a C# Console applicaiton.

In the following Main routine, how would you modify the statement

"ProcessFileBinary(file.FullName, sw1);"

so that it would only execute 1 time?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

static void Main()
        {        
            MyGlobals.BASE_FILE_Name = "C" + DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyyMMdd.HHmmss");
            File.Open(MyGlobals.BASE_DIR + MyGlobals.BASE_FILE_Name + ".ard", FileMode.Create).Close();
            System.Reflection.Assembly currentRunningAssembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
            string errorFilePath = System.IO.Path.Combine(MyGlobals.BASE_DIR, "error.txt");
            string indFilePath = System.IO.Path.Combine(MyGlobals.BASE_DIR, MyGlobals.BASE_FILE_Name + ".ard.ind");
            string bankFilePath = System.IO.Path.Combine(MyGlobals.BASE_DIR, MyGlobals.BASE_FILE_Name + ".ard.out");
            //delete the error file if it presently exists so that a new error file can be created in the event any errors are discovered
            if (File.Exists(errorFilePath))
            {
                File.Delete(errorFilePath);
            }
            //delete the bank output file if it presently exists so that a new bank output file can be created in the event any errors are discovered
            if (File.Exists(indFilePath))
            {
                File.Delete(indFilePath);
            }
            //delete the bank check image file if it presently exists so that a new bank check image file can be created in the event any errors are discovered
            if (File.Exists(bankFilePath))
            {
                File.Delete(bankFilePath);
            }
            //the incoming check image file does not have a file extension
            DirectoryInfo parentDirectory = new DirectoryInfo(MyGlobals.BASE_DIR);

            foreach (FileInfo file in parentDirectory.GetFiles())
            {
                if (!string.Equals(file.Name, MyGlobals.BASE_FILE_Name + ".ard", StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase) &&
                    !string.Equals(GetFileTitleOnly(file.Name), GetFileTitleOnly(currentRunningAssembly.ManifestModule.Name), StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase))
                {
                    StreamWriter sw1 = new StreamWriter(errorFilePath);
                    ProcessFile(file.FullName, sw1);
                    ProcessFileBinary(file.FullName, sw1);     <---- Want to execute 1 time only
                }
            }
            if (File.Exists(errorFilePath))
            {
                if (new FileInfo(errorFilePath).Length == 0)
                {
                    if (File.Exists(errorFilePath))
                    {

                        File.Delete(errorFilePath);
                    }
                }
            }          
        }

i would make a boolean and set it to true after the first time before the method is called do and if check on that variable before executing the method


if(!ran)
    executemethod();

ran = true;

If it isn't in a loop it will only process one time. Or if  you want once per file, I'd keep track of what files I'd already processed in some hash list and check it before calling on a file and not recall if it is in the list.
