======================================================================================

The current folder structure is
                   
                     -->test
                       -->scripts_folder
                          -->Libs
                          -->Libs2
                          -->Libs3
                          -->test1  

  test.pl C:\test\scripts_folder\

1. Delete all the files in the scripts_folder directory except the one's in the above log file starting with  --c-  --a--   --m--

2. Ignore lines starting with --d--
 
3. Do not error out if the file matching above criteria is already deleted or doesnt exist in the scripts_folder  
    directory.

        --a-- \Libs\test1\test1\test1.txt
       --m-- \Libs\test1\test1\test11.txt
       ---c- \Libs\Libs\test2\test2\test22.txt
       ---c- \Libs\Libs\test2\test2\test2.txt
       ---c- \Libs\Libs\test3\test33.txt

ozoCommented:
Is required.txt in the scripts_folder directory?
If not, how should the script find it?
If so, should it also be deleted?

@Ozo: The required.txt is in the scripts_folder directory.
            This file should not be deleted.
