    Filenames in a directory

    Hey,
    I need to add smilies to a board, and I have over 600. I need to know how can I tell C++ to get a filename for a directory, and add that and some stuff to a txt file. It goes like this :

    smoke.gif=+:Smoking=+::smoking:
    icon_biggrin.gif=+:Very Happy=+:;D
    icon_biggrin.gif=+:Very Happy=+::grin:


    So I need to be able to grab a name eg. smiley1.gif, add =+:A smiling smiley=+::smile:, and then go to next line.

    How can I make a program grab a filename ?

    Thanks

    Code:
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    char name[30];
    char mod[30];
    
    int main()
    {
    name = "weird.txt";
    
    for(int x = 0; x < 50; x++)
    {
    if(name[x]=='.')
    {
    for(int y = 0; y < x; y++)
    {
    mod[y] = name[y];
    }
    }
    }
    
    cout << mod;
    cout << endl << name;
    
    cout << endl << endl;
    
    return 0;
    }

    That's what we're after...
