NAME
       for_each_file_ex - Executes callback() for each file matching a wildcard.
       Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       int for_each_file_ex(const char *name, int in_attrib, int out_attrib, int
       (*callback)(const char *filename, int attrib, void *param), void *param);

DESCRIPTION
       Finds all the files on disk which match the given wildcard specification
       and file attributes, and executes callback() once for each. Basically,
       this is a convenient wrapper around al_findfirst(), al_findnext() and
       al_findclose(). `in_attrib' is a bitmask specifying the attributes the
       files must carry, `out_attrib' is a bitmask specifying the attributes the
       files must not carry; attributes which are not specified in either
       bitmasks are not taken into account for deciding whether callback() is
       invoked or not.

       The callback function will be passed three arguments: the first is a
       string which contains the completed filename (exactly the same string you
       passed to for_each_file_ex() but with meta characters), the second is the
       actual attributes of the file, and the third is a void pointer which is
       simply a copy of `param' (you can use this for whatever you like). The
       callback must return zero to let the enumeration proceed, or any non-zero
       value to stop it. If an error occurs, the error code will be stored in
       `errno' but the enumeration won't stop. Example:

          int show_name(const char *filename, int attrib, void *param)
          {
             allegro_message("Caught `%s', attribs %d\n",
                             filename, attrib);
             return 0;
          }
          ...
             count = for_each_file_ex("data/level*", FA_DIREC,
                                      0, show_name, 0);
             allegro_message("%d game directories\n", count);

RETURN VALUE
       Returns the number of successful calls made to callback(), that is, the
       number of times callback() was called and returned 0.
