say i had a directory of files that all had capital letters and i wanted to rename them all to lowercase, how would i do that? i know how to convert case stuff, that is not the problem, but how do i control outside files with a program? i looked at http://www.cplusplus.com/ref/iostream/fstream/ which can open/close files, but i could not find anything about renaming so i need to be able to 1. get directory contents 2. get a string form of each file name 3. change string 4. rename file to new string name i assume i need like dos implementation or something? i don''t know that''s why this is in "for beginners" hehe, i am allowed to be uninformed :>
