I'm writing a FTP client program for my degree project.
This project is using VC++ 5 and MFC. I tried CFileFind::IsDirectory(), but when I past a symbolic linked directory into this function, it returns a false value instead of true. Any way to achrieve that??

thx

The code to see if a file or directory is a directory works by looking at the flags in the WIN32_FIND_DATA. So one possibility would be to create your own IsDirectoryWithLink() and see if the dwFileAttributes have something that makes links unique so that you can use it.

I suspect the Internet find first and find next do not handle links very well, which may be a bug.
