Aquiring sub-dir contents

Hi, REBOLs: Is there a small, simple method (or function) of getting just the file names within a set of sub-drawers? I am having trouble efficiently applying what little directory code there is, in the web database. The parent directory has a set of drawers named (-, A, B, C..., 1, 2, 3...), but the code should work universally with any name set. The goal, of course, is to get only the file names within the drawer set, not the drawer names. -- ---===///||| Donald Dalley |||\\\===--- The World of AmiBroker Support http://webhome.idirect.com/~ddalley UIN/ICQ#: 65203020

Does this do what you need? get-sub-files: does [ files: copy  foreach item read %. [ if dir? item [append files read item] ] ] --Ryan Donald Dalley wrote:

This might be a useful starting point. Usage: recurse-read ; prints all filenames in the current folder ; including subfolders recurse-read/sub %a/ ; prints all filenames in %a/ and it's subfolders - Chris -- REBOL  recurse-read: func [ /sub dir [file! url!] /local files [block!] ][ either sub [ dir: dirize dir files: sort read dir ][ dir: %"" files: sort read %. ] foreach file files [ either dir? join dir file [ recurse-read/sub join dir file ][ print rejoin [dir file] ] ] ]

Ten thousand million times requested feature for native implementation - load/dir load/files. :-) Every kind of iteration is - slowing things down. Try dirs containing some 700 or more files, placed on network drive. Not all that comfort to work with ... I think that some kind of abstracted access to internal engines would be good on several places, e.g. effect pipeline, ability to find/deep on nested structures/blocks/objects (e.g. system/view/screen-face/pane sub-face). Could speed up rebol in certain operations ... -pekr- Christopher Ross-Gill wrote:
