I would like to list all files in current dir applying a function to each and if there is a directory list all files in that one and apply function to those and so on (recursive). Here is my current code,

void dircrawl(char *dir, void (*fcn)(char *, char *, char *))
{

   struct stat stbuf;
   struct _finddata_t file;  
   char name[MAX_PATH];
   long hFile;
   
   if((hFile = _findfirst("*.*", &file )) == -1){
        printf("Error no files in current directory\n"); }
   else{
      
           
 while( _findnext( hFile, &file ) == 0){
             stat(name, &stbuf);  
                  
if (strcmp(file.name, ".") == 0 || strcmp(file.name, "..") == 0) {
                   continue;
                        }
if (strlen(dir)+strlen(file.name)+2 > sizeof(name)){
                   fprintf(stderr, "dircrawl: name %s/%s too long \n", dir, file.name);}

                 
if (((stbuf.st_mode & S_IFMT) == S_IFDIR) && (_chdir(name)){                              sprintf(name, "%s/%s", dir, file.name);
                           (*fcn)(file.name, lookfor, name);
                            dircrawl(name, print);
                         }
else {
                        sprintf(name, "%s/%s", dir, file.name);
                              (*fcn)(file.name, lookfor, name);
                        
                        }
                  }  
                  _findclose( hFile );  
      
   }
}

just put a line under the found file bit that performs the task on the file. you may want to check the file is the right type. this cann be achived by interogating the ff.name var
