[REBOL] needle in a haystack

From: deryk:iitowns at: 11-Aug-2001 16:06

I've a need for a script to search for the existance of a given list of files on a HD. Rebol was the first tool that popped into my head that sounded like it would suit the need. I looked at the script library and the dir-tree* recursive scripts but for the number of files/dirs that need to be searched causes rebol (latest /view) to pork it (local test on a subdir in my $HOME dir has 14,404 dirs/files alone and segfaulted..). So basically, I'm asking if it can be done with the latest version of /core and/or any pointers to scripts I can use or glue together to get this job done. -- Regards, Deryk Robosson
