    Question Searching for file, than deleting it.


    I am making a program in c++ that deletes the internet history on a pc. My major problem is that, I don't know how to search for a key word like, *cookies*, and then delete it. I want it to work something like this:
    PHP Code:
    1search for keyword "*cookies*"  
    2then delete all files containing that word or file named that
    Thank-you so much,
    "All things come to an end"

    deleting a file

    You can look at the previous thread on deleting folders and subfolders. You modify the code so that it accomplishes what you need.
