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";

void LoadArray()
fstream tmp;
int i = 0;
tmp >> array[i];

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

int main()
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;
