      • AgeFileFilter

        public AgeFileFilter(Date cutoffDate)
        Constructs a new age file filter for files older than (at or before) a certain cutoff date.
        Parameters:
        cutoffDate - the threshold age of the files
      • AgeFileFilter

        public AgeFileFilter(Date cutoffDate,
                             boolean acceptOlder)

        Parameters:
        cutoffDate - the threshold age of the files
        acceptOlder - if true, older files (at or before the cutoff) are accepted, else newer ones (after the cutoff).
      • AgeFileFilter

        public AgeFileFilter(File cutoffReference)
        Constructs a new age file filter for files older than (at or before) a certain File (whose last modification time will be used as reference).
        Parameters:
        cutoffReference - the file whose last modification time is used as the threshold age of the files

    • Method Detail

      • accept

        public boolean accept(File file)
        Checks to see if the last modification of the file matches cutoff favorably.

        If last modification time equals cutoff and newer files are required, file IS NOT selected. If last modification time equals cutoff and older files are required, file IS selected.

        Specified by:
        accept in interface  FileFilter
        Specified by:
        accept in interface  IOFileFilter
        Overrides:
        accept in class  AbstractFileFilter
        Parameters:
        file - the File to check
        Returns:
        true if the file name matches
      • accept

        public FileVisitResult accept(Path file,
                                      BasicFileAttributes attributes)
        Checks to see if the last modification of the file matches cutoff favorably.

        If last modification time equals cutoff and newer files are required, file IS NOT selected. If last modification time equals cutoff and older files are required, file IS selected.

        Specified by:
        accept in interface  PathFilter
        Specified by:
        accept in interface  IOFileFilter
        Parameters:
        file - the File to check
        attributes - the file's basic attributes (TODO may be null).
        Returns:
        true if the file name matches
        Since:
        2.9.0
      • toString

        public String toString()
        Provide a String representation of this file filter.
        Overrides:
