Here's some short code to find a file on any disk or hard drive.

Code:
path$=Space(255) : r=SearchTreeForFile_("c:\","FileToFind",path$)
If r=0
  MessageRequester("Error","File not found...",0)
Else
  MessageRequester("Location",path$,0)
EndIf

Yep, using the API is a wonderful way to code in PureBasic.
Of my apps, I'd say about 40% of their code are API routines and not
actually BASIC at all...

Oh yes API solve most of the problems.But there are new Problems if you want compile to Linux(If Not , forget my comment ).Thats wh i want most of the API's in Basic-Commands to port it between OS's .

I know what you mean, but like you said: I don't use Linux/Amiga so it's of no
concern to me. :)
