    search for particular extention file using C

    Sorry for posting it in C++ board, I'm unable to delete the thread, I request mods to do that

    Hi all,

    I have to make an application which lists all files with .mp3 extention in given directory. How can I search for that using file commands in C?

    Regards,
    Edesign

    That is OS-dependent - you can see how to list files in the FAQ. Depending on how you do it, you will either specify that you want files called .mp3 or you have to match the name you get back against "ending with .mp3".
