DONE: Search Subdirs for Missing File
« on: January 18, 2010, 07:28:51 PM »
I need the capability to search a directory that has a lot of subdirectories and find those subdirs that are missing a certain file. I'd like to be able to run a search and be able to see which folders are missing a filename that I can supply as an argument.

try this AHK code...

you will be prompted for a starting directory and a filter file

script will search through and display a list of offending folders in a small gui (list)

note that I have assumed that each folder should be considered in isolation, ie a folder that doesn't contain the selected file but does contain a subfolder containing it is still considered to NOT contain the file  

nothing fancy, but it should get you started


loop, parse, a_loopfilefullpath
{
    if a_loopfield = \
        L1++
}   

loop, %source%\*.*, 2, 1
{
    error = 0
    loop, %a_loopfilefullpath%\%myVAR%, 0, 0
    {
            error:= 1
            Break
    }
    if error = 0
        mylist.= a_loopfilefullpath . "`n"
}

sort, mylist, CL U

menu, print, add, Print
menu, ToFile, add, To_File
;menu, ToHTML, add, To_HTML
menu, menubar, add, print
menu, menubar, add, To_File
;menu, menubar, add, To_HTML
gui, menu, menubar
gui, add, listview, r20 w750 grid nosort gClickMe, Folder
loop, parse, mylist, `n
{
    lv_ADD("",a_loopfield)
}
gui, add, statusbar,, source folder - %source%
gui, show
return

guiescape:
guiclose:
exitapp

print:
fileappend, %mylist%, c:\temp\Tmp.txt
runwait, print c:\temp\Tmp.txt,,hide
filedelete, c:\temp\Tmp.txt
return

to_file:
filedelete, %source%\ex-files.txt
fileappend, %mylist%, %source%\ex-files.txt
return

ClickMe:
if a_guievent = DoubleClick
{
    lv_GetText(myFolder,A_eventinfo)
    run %myfolder%
}
return

#r::reload

EDIT: updated source

a small improvement - added the functionality to print the list, or export it to a file

EDIT: redundant attachments removed
