    New program, guidence

    Ok heres my general plan:

    A program that searches the hard drive, picks up all mp3 files, and lists them in the window (API), with checkboxes. The user picks the ones they want and its compiled into a winamp mp3 playlist.

    My question is wheres a good place to learn the required api for this, and learn bout the winamp playlist programming?

    Look into FindFirstFile() and FindNextFile() on MSDN... or do a search on here. I know I gave an example of how to use the functions awhile ago, so it should come up with something.

    As for the playlist file format.. it seems pretty simple, just open one up in notepad.

    when winamp creates a playlist they add a bunch of extra unnecessary nonsense. Just create an m3u, the format is:

    <filename>
    <filename>
    ...
    <filename>

    nothing special, just the filenames, one per line, in the order in which you want them played.
    C Code. C Code Run. Run Code Run... Please!

    if you're really crazy about making a nice playlist check winamp.com and somewhere on there it has all the winamp API's

    One more thing, i have found/seen alot of tutorials on making menus, buttons, general interface/API stuff, like say what visual basic uses, but none of them have really stuck out. I want a window with a few buttons, drop menus, etc, can anyone who has read or learned these things from a tutorial reccomend that tutorial for me? I am just looking for a good reccomendation.
