Hello!

My email is stud6x14@nortel.ca --- I may have entered it incorrectly in the registation form.

I am porting an API from Unix to NT. The API has to be able
to obatin a list of the subdirectories within a given directory. Is there a function in the Win32 API that will let me do this (in C)? I am using FindFirstFileEx() to access files -- does something similar exist for dirs???

Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken you set the fSearchOp parameter to be FindExSearchLimitToDirectories.
You should check the that the dwFileAttributes member in the WIN32_FIND_DATA has the FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY flag set.

Hope this is enough/
