i''m working on university project and i have a little problem. Well, i have to copy a folder and its contents in another folder. My problem is the follwing: it seems that i am not able to find how am i going to know what a floder contains in order to copy it to another location. So, i would like to know if there is any way of finding the content of a folder so that we could copy them or change the in any way. For example : Copy a random folder and all its contents to anther folder named "copy". what would you do for that?

ANSI C has no functionality to iterate through directories. You''ll have to use an operating system specific set of functions to do so. If you''re on a *nix system look in the dirent.h header. If you''re on a Windows system, look up the FindFirstFile() function.
