  • Read through file names - IFS

    I need to write a bit of code that reads the file names (not the actual file itself) from an IFS directory, so I can store this in a DBF.

    How do I go about doing this? Can anyone show me any examples?

    Thanks,

    IMHO the easiest way is, to generate files with the RTVDIRINF Command and the read the information you need from the outfile(s).
    Code:
    RTVDIRINF DIR('/yourDir/Dir2')    
                   INFFILEPFX(YOURS)       
                   INFLIB(YOURLIB)
    An other way would be to use the qshell command find and direct the result to a table.

      Thanks for your reply. I have discovered the command: LISTDIRS, which places the results into a table.

    It somewhat depends on just what you need to process. Directories can contain other directories - do you need to drill down into them?

    I wrote a series of articles back in 2005 that went through the whole process and introduced a generic routine that could easily be used in Service Program. As is often the case these are currently "missing" from the magazines web site but I can supply you with pdfs of the base articles. Just message me if you want them.
