Will be possible add the option for the commands Delete, Move, Copy, the pattern *.* for example delete all files from a drawer instead of now one to one?

This is already possible. As in AmigaDOS, the slash after the directory name tells DeleteFile() to delete all files and subdirectories but keep the root directory, e.g.

Code: Select all

DeleteFile("dh0:testdir/")

I try to delete files with a pattern but I don't get the correct paramater, I tryed this:
pattern$="*.Log"
DeleteFile(pattern$)
even this:
DeleteFile("dh1:", pattern$) but the solution is worst.
