SQL Eval Function Directory_GetDirectories
Directory_GetDirectories returns the names of the subdirectories (including their paths) that match the specified search pattern in the specified directory, and optionally searches subdirectories.
Directory_GetDirectories ( @path NVARCHAR (MAX), @searchPattern NVARCHAR (MAX) @searchOption ) RETURNS TABLE ([Match] NVARCHAR (MAX) NULL)
- path: The relative or absolute path to the directory to search. This string is not case-sensitive.
- searchPattern: The search string to match against the names of files in path. This parameter can contain a combination of valid literal path and wildcard (* and ?) characters, but it doesn't support regular expressions.
- searchOption: One of the enumeration values that specifies whether the search operation should include all subdirectories or only the current directory.
You can use one of the following options.
|TopDirectoryOnly||0||Includes only the current directory in a search operation.|
|AllDirectories||1||Includes the current directory and all its subdirectories in a search operation. This option includes reparse points such as mounted drives and symbolic links in the search.|
A list of the full names (including paths) of the subdirectories that match the specified criteria, or an empty array if no directories are found.
