How can I get a list of files (and directorys) in a directory using standard C library functions? (Not Windows API functions)
Thanks,
Octi

You can't do it using standard C library, because it's not part of the C/C++ standard.

You have to use OS specific or compiler specific functions.

The _findfile function is available in most compilers/OS.

Correction:

The _findfirst/_findnext functions are available in most compilers/OS.

Another set of commonly used functions are the opendir & readdir set.
