hi,

Here is the example for this,

#include <direct.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

void main( void )
{
   if( _mkdir( "\\testtmp" ) == 0 )
   {
      printf( "Directory '\\testtmp' was successfully created\n" );
      system( "dir \\testtmp" );
      if( _rmdir( "\\testtmp" ) == 0 )
        printf( "Directory '\\testtmp' was successfully removed\n"  );
      else
         printf( "Problem removing directory '\\testtmp'\n" );
   }
   else
      printf( "Problem creating directory '\\testtmp'\n" );
}

Hi

#include <windows.h>

CreateDirectory (char *DirName, SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES Attribs);


Call this function like this:

CreateDirectory ("MyFile.txt", NULL);

If the function succeeds returns non-zero otherwise NULL.

Regards
Bijo.

int main( void )
{
   char* buffer;

   // Get the current working directory:
   if( (buffer = _getcwd( NULL, 0 )) == NULL )
      perror( "_getcwd error" );
   else
   {
      printf( "%s \nLength: %d\n", buffer, strlen(buffer) );
