    Reading in more than one file

    I am creating a recipe search for my wife: she has hundreds of recipes, all in different txt files. Is there a way of reading in more than one file? I have a folder with all of the recipe files in it and would like to run a loop to create an object of each recipe.

    Can you loop through a folder to read all the files?

    Having some problems, tried the win32 code and it does not like converting const chars to LWPTS. Using VS10. Good practice debugging I guess.

    Never mind, I had to change the configuration in VS:
    taken from
    FAQ: Cannot convert from 'const char [..]' to 'LPCTSTR'

    Resolution

    You will have to do one of two things:

    1. Change your project configuration to use multibyte strings. Press ALT+F7 to open the properties, and navigate to Configuration Properties > General. Switch Character Set to "Use Multi-Byte Character Set".
    2. Indicate that the string literal, in this case "Hello world!" is of a specific encoding. This can be done through either prefixing it with L, such as L"Hello world!", or surrounding it with the generic _T("Hello world!") macro. The latter will expand to the L prefix if you are compiling for unicode (see #1), and nothing (indicating multi-byte) otherwise.
