FINDFILES is the jCommon module of jLab.

 FINDFILES  Returns all files in a directory with a specified extension.
 
    FILES=FINDFILES(DIRNAME,EXT) where DIRNAME is a full directory path, 
    returns a cell arrays FILES of all files having extension EXT in 
    directory DIRNAME.
 
    For example, FILES=FINDFILES('/Users/lilly/Home','m') returns a cell
    cell array of all m-files in the Home directory.
 
    FINDFILES(DIRNAME,'*') returns files having any extension.  
 
    FINDFILES(DIRNAME,'') returns files having no extension.  This can
    be used to return directory names.

    Recursive searching
 
    FINDFILES(DIRNAME,...,'recursive') recursively searches though
    directory DIRNAME as well as any subdirectories it contains. 
    
    [FILES,PATHS]=FINDFILES(DIRNAME,...,'recursive') also outputs a cell 
    array PATHS specifying the full path name to each file in FILES.

    Additional options
 
    FINDFILES(...,'include',STR1) additionally returns only those file
    names which inlude the text STR1.
 
    FINDFILES(...,'exclude',STR2) excludes those files names which 
    include the text STR2.
   
    The include and exclude options must be input after the first two
    variables.  Both options may be input simultaneously.

    Usage: files=findfiles(pwd,'m');
           files=findfiles(dirname,ext);    
           files=findfiles(dirname,ext,'include','help');
           [files,dirs]=findfiles(dirname,ext,'include','help','recursive');
           files=findfiles(dirname,ext,'include','help','exclude','jLab');
 
    'findfiles --t' runs a test.
