hi,
i've to copy all the files in one directory to some other dir.
I can copy the files if and only if i know the filename and its extension.I may know the dir exactly but not the files inside and these files are with different extension.This program will have to work in java1.3,1.4 & 1.5 also.Pls help me to get it rite way.
