The attached code is one unit that basically can be used to replace Borland's FindFirst-FindNext-TSearchRec code. The standard code works - but is missing a few things

I have added a few enhancements (based on my research and posts from others in the news groups)

a) Addition of the attributes of Temporary, Compressed and Off-Line in addition to all the regular attribs like Read-Only, System, etc

b) Addition of the ability to exclude files from the search by attribute.

c) Provide access to the underlying Win32FindData as well as surfacing all the Date/Time Values (Create/Modify/Access)

d) Check in the FindClose to make sure that the handle is valid before trying to close. This removes the possible crash when running under NT.

The attached code is Freeware in all respects. Send me an email if you like it - or improve it
