Hi ico2,
Use strcat. Make sure your buffer is big enough.

If you're really concerned about buffer size, use snprintf:

char* path="some\\path";
char* fname="some_filename";
char fullpathbuffer[64];

snprintf(fullpathbuffer,sizeof(fullpathbuffer),"%s\\%s",path,fname);

You might need _snprintf with VC++.


Cheers,
Stefan
