i want to enumerate all files in a given directory and write them down along with there last mod time.

I'm struggling with the datetime to wstring / outstream conversion.

Just see the attached code.
Maybe someone can show me the code to used to implement this using a XML file.
Or is XML to slow for such an task?

with best regards,

using namespace System;
DateTime dt;
fstream file;, ios::trunc);
// Enumerate all the files/subdirectories
while (true) { 
		if ((FindFileData.cFileName != wstring(L".")) && (FindFileData.cFileName != wstring(L".."))) {
			file << FindFileData.cFileName << L":" << dt.ToLongDateString << L":" << endl;
