    You might take a look at Salem'sdirectory walker.

    And when removing a directory, remember to delete all of the files within it before attempting to remove the directory itself (if there are subdirectories, these of course must be deleted before the parent is).
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
