Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Using Dir Function

In a question off your list, you mentioned how to rename files given the same formatted extension. How would it be possible to do this to a different extention, e.g. *.htm files to *.html?

In that case (assuming you can support long filenames) use the Dir$ function (called just "Dir" in VB4.0). It will return you a list of files matching a pattern. For each file, just rename it to whatever you want. You can use InStr to find the period in the filename, take the front part of the name and attach it to the new extension.
