Does anyone know how one can delete a file using Max? My application creates temp files and it would be nice if I could delete them.
I need this functionality for both Windows and Mac.
you can us an mxj and the JAVA File class which has a method delete().
on osx, you can use the shell object and the rm unix command.
on windows, maybe f.e.’s winhack objects can help you out, though i have no experience with winmax.
Yep. WinHack contains DOSHack class that does this very quickly.
It turns out that Bill Orcutt, the creator of the "shell" object also made a "rm" object (remove) with versions for OS X as well as Windows.
A list of Bill’s objects can be found here: http://www.maxobjects.com/?v=authors&id_auteur=44&re quested=shell&operateur=AND&id_plateforme=0
And they can be downloaded from here:
Note: maxobjects.com is not up-to-date. Many of the object also have a Windows version.
