    Easiest way to browse for contents of a folder and store them in a string vector

    What would be the easiest method of finding how many as well as all the filenames present in a selected directory? After that, I'm pretty sure I can store the information into a vector of some sort.

    Thanks in advance.

    It depends on your platform, though there are cross platform libraries available such as Boost.Filesystem (which would make for a pretty easy way to do what you want to do, I think).

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
