Delete input files with matches?

Postby sergeda » Wed Oct 26, 2011 7:47 am

Hello.
Is this possible to delete not all input files but only where Textpipe matched text by filter?

Yes - you can do this with a script that records if a file has a match, and then delete the file once it has closed. I have attached a filter for this.
