fun with grub4dos batch files!

I have written a few new batch files which can be called by grub4dos - see here.

FindFullFileName.g4b - finds the first file matching a full filename
FindFileName.g4b - finds the first file matching a filename (without extension)
FindFileExt.g4b - finds the first file matching a file extension
title FindFileExt on mapped HDD Image
map  (bd)/harddisk.img (hd2)
map --hook
root (hd2,0)
# look for a file with a .com extension - param1=start folder   param2=extension
(bd)/grub/FindFileExt.g4b / .com
if not "%FILEPATH%"=="" echo FILE FOUND AT %FILEPATH%! 
if "%FILEPATH%"==""  echo No file with matching extension found!
pause
root
(more commands here)
Please download FindFile.zip to obtain these batch files.
