    Question List number of files in a dir and save to an int?

    G'day,
    Im new to c++ and im creating a program for my old dad, who is new to computers, that can automatically, when executed, copy files from his digital camara to a pre-selected location on his hard disk.

    I need a little help reading in the amount of files stored on the camara hard disk dir into an int varaible......any thoughts?
