Find Files and Folders Using a RegEx Name Pattern

asobjc

#1

Hey Folks,

This macro packages an AppleScriptObjC script that finds files and folders using a regular expression.

Orange Actions are User-Settings – they should be self-explanitory – and should make the macro easy enough for anyone who knows a modicum of RegEx to use.

If not then please ask questions and/or make suggestions.

At present folders can be excluded from the search but not files.

In future I will probably add some features to this critter, but I'm done for the moment.

@ccstone, this is just what I was looking for! I tweaked it to search using a couple other variables and then open the file. This greatly improves my current solution. Thanks!
