I Have been reviewing this page on listing the contents of directories and sub directories
Processing Directory List
My question now is how to work with this data effectively once gathered. I say “effectively” because most of the documentation about parsing strings I have seen seem to be about working with big data files. I just imagine what I am trying do must be pretty common, and already well solved. I have just not been able to find any good examples.
My plan is to have a folder inside data, with more folders inside that of my art files. Some will be still images, some will be frames of animation. I plan to make a folder per animation with the relevant frames inside. So my directory structure may be something like:
So “Stills” would a folder of images that should be loaded into one Array.
the Anim folders should have their contents loaded into an Array each.
For testing purposes I have been hardcoding my arrays. All that is working just fine. I would like to be able to freely drop new content in these folders and have everything be loaded when I run the program.
Thanks in advance for any help or direction you can provide.
