[SOLVED] Expanding wildcards in directory paths
I'm a newbie to C++/Qt.
Looking at the docs for QDir, one can filter for a "type" of file (eg: *.txt) however can QDir expand wildcards in the path?
For example if I have the following dir structure:
If I was above foo, and wanted to find foo//.txt how would one do it with QDir? Is it even possible? Or would I have to do a manual walk over the segments in the path?
I think you will have to walk through the children manually because QDir only display its direct child nodes in the filesystem.
You will have to manually walk through the subdirs. For filtering, have a look at "QDir::entryInfoList() ":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/qdir.html#entryInfoList
Thanks guys. I've already begun code to manually walk the subdirs. It would be a nice feature to have in QDir of course ;)
