here is a very simple way.

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

string array[100];

void ClearArray()
{
for(int i=0;i<100;i++){
array = "";
}
}

void LoadDir(string sDir)
{
string buff;
buff = "Dir ";
buff += sDir;
buff += " /aa /b >> c:\\d.txt";
system(buff.c_str());
}

void LoadArray()
{
fstream tmp;
tmp.open("c:\\d.txt";
int i = 0;
while(!tmp.eof()){
tmp >> array[i];
i++;
}
}

void ListArray()
{
for(int i=0;i<100;i++){
if(array[i] == "" ){ break; }
cout << array[i] << endl;
}
}

int main()
{
ClearArray();
//LoadDir("C:\\";
LoadDir("c:\\games\\";
LoadArray(); // load array with directory listing.
ListArray(); // dumb array to console.
ClearArray(); //clean up global array.
system("del c:\\d.txt"; //destroy tempory file.
return 0;
}
