This is a discussion on creating directories within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; is there a function which creates all the nonexisting directories in a given path?...

    What system are you using? If it's Unix, here is an example:

    Code:
    #include <sys/types.h>
    #include <sys/stat.h>
    #include <fcntl.h>
    
    //...
    
    mkdir("./path/to/my/dir", 0777);
    For some other unix functions look here



    There is something similar in Windows, too. Here is an example for VC++:


    Code:
    #include <direct.h>
    
    //...
    
    _mkdir("\\mydir");
    Look here for more examples and explanations for VC++.
    The OS requirements were Windows Vista Ultimate or better, so we used Linux.
