Hey sorry guys,

I missed stating an important part in my question. It should read:

How can my program discover the filenames of all the files in the current working directory that match a given regular expression, such as *.doc or *.txt etc?

#include <setargv.obj>

This will automatically expand *.* to all the files in your directory, separated by spaces.
