I have a text file with below contents. Need a shell or perl script that will take path to the scripts_folder as parameter

text file contents

Workspace: (1000) "test_scripts_ws"
  Component: (1001) "some_Automated_Scripts"
    Change sets:
      (1002) ---$ john "test memory" 17-Sep-2014 02:24 PM
        Changes:
          --a-- \Libs\path\to\some\file22.txt
          --m-- \Libs\file\some\folder\locg2.lcke
          --d-- \Libs\file\in\some\folder\lock.lck
          ---c- \Libs\file\path\to\test\folder\source.mtr
          ---c- \Libs\Action1\Resource.mtr
         
      (1003) ---$ john "Test exist:"  17-Sep-2014 12

        Changes:
          ---c- \Libs\path\to\some\folder\cript.mts
      (1004) ---$ john "Memory Fix #2" 17-Sep-2014 12:47 PM
        Changes:
          ---c- \Libs\path\tp\some\folder\test.txt

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

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.

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.
