GETLIST Get the file or directory list of the current local or remote directory
- variable_name: GETLIST will save the list in this variable. Usually, this variable is used in the FOREACH loop.
LOCAL_FILES Local file list LOCAL_DIRECTORIES Local directory list REMOTE_FILES Remote file list REMOTE_DIRECTORIES Remote directory list
- wildcard (optional): if this parameter is used GETLIST will only include in the resulting list the files or directories that match this wildcard. For example “*.txt” will make GETLIST create a list of text files only.
- The resulting list can be used in the FOREACH loop. This way you can make ScriptFTP do a different set of actions for each file in the list.
- Every ScriptFTP variable contains a text string and the list that this command creates is not an exception. The character “|” is used to separate the items of the list. Therefore, you can also build file lists without GETLIST. For example: $mylist=”a.txt|b.txt|c.txt”.
This command will return “OK” if no error was found retrieving the file list.
This command was added in ScriptFTP 3.0 build July 28th 2008
