Looking for sample code that uses getEntries

I’m working on a sample player for @23volts that can switch between files in a folder. I’m stuck on the part that, given a path, scans the path for all .wav files.

Modular80 has some code that does a similar thing here, but their code appears to be fairly old and they use systemListEntries, which appears to be deprecated in favor of getEntries. However, I can’t find any code examples that use getEntries. Would anyone have any code samples that they can share?

Thanks, Bret

This has an example of getEntries

This helped a ton. Thanks!

Here’s some sample code that iterates over .wav files in a path:

std::list<std::string> dirList = system::getEntries(path);

for (auto entry : dirList)
	if (string::filenameExtension(entry).compare("wav") == 0)
		// if it is a .wav file, then do stuff

Not sure what string::filenameExtension is off hand and if it handles this, but just a reminder with code like this that Mac and Linux can throw you a .Wav or .WAV or I guess a .wAv file where your compare may fail on case.

That implementation has bugs. Use

string::lowercase(string::filenameExtension(string::filename(path))) == "wav"
