Hi.. another small contribution...

This process finds a file under a path you give it..
it only brings one reply.. but it can easily can be modified to return all found paths..
I just dont need that atm so I didnt do it.

The Var in the function Called "SerialNumber" means its number in the search..
so if its 1, it will return the first path he finds.. if its 2 than the second.. and so on..
I just didnt have a better name for it ;)


 Print FindFilePath("test.bmx")


    Global SerialCounter

    Function FindFilePath:String(Filename:String, RootURL:String = "", SerialNumber = 1)
        If Trim(Filename) = "" Then Return
        SerialCounter = 0
        Filename = Trim(Lower(Filename))
        If Trim(RootURL) = "" Then RootURL = CurrentDir() + "\"
        Return FindFilePath_Req_Int(RootURL, Filename, SerialNumber)

Nice! now you should add the tags code-archive, blitzmax and file-utilities so it will be included in the code archives.
