Find, using an input text file containing filenames?

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if it's possible to perform a file find routine on a directory using a text file as input containing filenames?

So, I'd like to be able to search a series of subdirectories for a list of specific files, rather than by just one filename or a filename pattern.

Any help appreciated!

All the best,


There's no explicit way to do this, but search filters are XML files so you could munge the list of filenames into the filter format I suppose.

You could also, more easily, munge them into a command which selects all of the filenames (lots of Select lines, one for each file) and then run that in flat-mode.

Neither are very good if it's something you want to do regularly, with different lists of names, but if it's a one-off or a fixed list of names then they might do the job.
