This is a recursive directory search using GNAT.Directory_Operations:
procedure Scan_Directory (Named : Dir_Name_Str) is
Wd : Dir_Type;
Open (Dir => Wd,
Dir_Name => Named);
Str : String (1 .. 1024);
Last : Natural;
Read (Dir => Wd,
Str => Str,
Last => Last);
exit when Last = 0;
if Str (1 .. Last) /= "." and Str (1 .. Last) /= ".." then
if Is_Directory (Named & Str (1 .. Last)) then
(Named & Str (1 .. Last) & Directory_Separator);
Save_File (Named & Str (1 .. Last));
Close (Dir => Wd);
Save_File is the place where the work gets done.
Not so sure about the 1024!
