I am trying to delete the oldest file in a directory. I found a way to do it using a batch script, but when I put the batch code inside system, it doesn't works!
string dir = "C:\\testfolder\\"; string system_s = "FOR /F \"delims=!\" %%i IN ('DIR /A-D /B /O-D \""+dir+"\"') DO del \"%%i\""; const char *system_c = system_s.c_str(); system(system_c);
On the other hand, if I place the code bellow inside a .bat file and execute it it works:
FOR /F "delims=!" %%i IN ('DIR /A-D /B /O-D "C:\testfolder\"') DO del %%i
Any help is welcome!
