trustme Posted June 9, 2007 Share Posted June 9, 2007 Hello, My Java teacher insists that I create a program to search for files on the computer based on file type (e.g. .rar, .zip) after I made a sarcastic comment about the intelligence of the class. (They did not know the difference between a local and global variable by the end of the year, it is a beginners class but…) So the threat was that he would take off my extra credit points (I did not do a final project because I had more extra credit than the final was worth). I was looking around online and found out that I should be using some extension of file. Also, there was a mention of a memory overflow when trying to search the entire computer. Since this is the coding forum and you guys are all proficient in numerous languages I was wondering if I could get some help? This is probably way over my head; the final test was as easy as print lines and calling methods. I’m pretty confident in my ability to add the files and build a gui in swing with the paint command, but the actual code for searching escapes me. Thanks for any help.
