Need a script to find and delete a file type (.xcx) in a certin folder (C:\XCX\Files) but there are other files in the folder that i dont want deleted, im guessing I'd use the $findfile? i think thats it, anyway, I'd like to do it in the fastest manner possible, it has to be done with script though, thanks

Or you could try another way that is included within windows its called "SEARCH" search for the files that you want to delete and then manually delete them....course thats just a thought LOL

Here ya go, this code should work pretty good!
Code:
alias delxcx {
  window -c @files | window -ln @files 180 60 200 300
  aline -s @files $findfile(C:\XCX\Files,*.xcx,@files)
  %lines = $sline(@files,1).ln | %position = 1
  while (%done != true && %lines > 0) {
    set %line $line(@files,%position)
    remove " $+ %line $+ "
    inc %position
    if (%position >= %lines) { %done = true }
  }
  unset %done %line %lines %position
  window -c @files
}

If there is more than say 1000 of these XCX files, mIRC might appear to hang while it's doing this, just wait it out, if you plan on having to delete a large amount of files often I can add a progress meter to this so you can see that it's doing something.

Hammer's code is best of all those stated, but if you want to expand it and make a window to tell you what it's deleting try:
Code:
 alias delxcx { 
var %a = 1, %b, %c = $1 
window @Clear
aline @Clear Started *.xcx deleting session in %c !
while ($findfile(%c,*.xcx,%a)) { 
set %b $ifmatch
remove %b
aline @Clear File: %b found and deleted (No: $+ %a $+ )
inc %a } 
if (%a == 1) { 
No .xcx file found in %c } 
} 

The directory is a variable in this case
