Wildcard in file name

I have to write a function in a DLL for Windows NT 4.0 that can receive file name with wildcard (* and ?) and return a valid file name that can be use to do COPY(CopyFIle), DEL(DeleteFile) or RENAME (RenameFile).

I have no problem with DEL, but with COPY or RENAME I have to create a new file name from the wilcard and the name return by FindNextFile.

Is there a function like this in MFC or WIN32 API?

Thanks..

There are no features in MFC or the Win32 API that do this.  You'll need to do the string math yourself to develop a suitable target file name.
