GDEL.EXE is a program that will allow you to search and delete files
in your subdirectories. GDEL operates in two modes, the first will
just delete files matching a specification in the specified
directory or current directory and all subdirectories below and the
second mode will remove empty directories as it finds them while it
is recursively searching for the pattern specified. This means that
you could tell GDEL to delete all files with the .BAK extention while
leaving empty subdirectories intact or you could delete the directory
D:\TEMP and all subdirectories below it. Since this command is so
very distructive, you will recieve a verification prompt of what is
about to be searched for and deleted where you will have a chance to
abort the command.
The format of using GDEL is:
where /R will allow GDEL to delete empty directories
Some examples of using GDEL are:
GDEL A:\*.BAK Will delete all of the .BAK files found on A:
GDEL TEMP /R Will delete the directory named TEMP and all
files and subdirectories below TEMP
GDEL C:TEST\*.$$$ Will start searching for files in the TEST directory
with the $$$ extention and delete them
GDEL.EXE was written in "C" and is a bound executable. This means it
will run under OS/2 and DOS.
