    Default Search file program

    Hi all, I'm writing here for a question:

    I want to make a simple program that find files on the computer given the extension of the file:

    example : I have lost a text file and I forgot the name. So I launch my program and it will find all the .txt file on my computer.

    my problem is that I have no idea on how to do the search on the whole pc.

    I hope that i have well explained my problem...

    thanks all...

    Check out - Java Code Snippets and Tutorials - Java Programming Forums

    There are lots of code snippets there.

    Take a look at this example:

    http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...directory.html

    You can search for all .txt files in a given directory. This can be easily modified.
    I believe there is a .isDirectory() method. Use this to list the directories then list files within them.
