    Default Search and Delete code help

    So I need to create a simple program but I haven't used java in Windows in a while and I need some help. I need to search the C drive for a folder called "alpha" but it must only contain "alpha" and nothing else such as "alpha_1." After it finds "alpha" it must search within this folder for anything containing the strings "beta" and "gamma." The program must then delete all of these files and/or files with "beta" and "gamma." I'm not really sure where to start and I coould really use some help.

    Default Re: Search and Delete code help

    Look at the File class for getting lists of files and folders in a folder.
    For simple text files, the Scanner would be easy to use to read files.
    The String class has methods for comparing Strings
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
