How would I find a list of files in a directory? I''m using VC++. Does win32 have any native functions to do this?

This is an example of how to use the functions:


  
HRESULT ScanFiles(char *szPath)
{
if( szPath == NULL )
return E_INVALIDARG;

WIN32_FIND_DATA wfd;
HANDLE hFind;

hFind = FindFirstFile( szPath, &wfd );
do
{
// If it is a directory and not "." or ".."

if( ( wfd.dwFileAttributes & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY ) &&
wfd.cFileName[0] != ''.'' )
{
// You could form a new path name by appending

// wfd.cFileName to your current path, and

// call this funciton recursively to explore all

// subdirectories in the hierarchy

}

else if( wfd.cFileName &&
!( wfd.dwFileAttributes & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY ) )
{
// This is a file

}
}
while( FindNextFile(hFind, &wfd ) );

FindClose(hFind);

return S_OK;
}
