will delete thumbs.db files out of zip files Can't Post

I would like to have a script that runs through a directory, deletes the thumbs.db files or DS_Store files and also deletes these files from inside of zip files. Does this exist? would it be difficult? I don't know any perl but have written plenty of batch scripts.

This is quite a trivial task for Perl and by no means would it be difficult to write.

If you are planning on writing a script yourself and need a starting point, the following modules may be of use to you:

- File::Recurse -
- Archive::Zip -
