    make directories

    Hello every one, I was having a problem with making directories in c I tried using
    Code:
    pfile = fopen("C:\\Program Files\\reminder\\data\\backup1.xls", "a");
    where it would actually make a the directory while it made the file but that doesn't work
    if anyone could help explain a way to do this that would be great, i looked at msdn but it doesnt make any sence to me.
    (<----- I am a noob)
    can you please explain it to me like I am a 5 year old
    thanks in advance.

    You will need to use something like mkdir, which isn't an ANSI C function, because C doesn't care about file systems per say. Figure out what compiler you are using, then go look up your compiler + make directory on teh interwebs.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Windows has a Unix subsytem for most of ANSI and POSIX. There's an optional update, Interix, that adds support for pthreads and everything that isn't supported by default.
