    Help

    I'm trying to create a "file browsing" utility of sorts. What I would like it to do is take a directory and:

    1. Create a list of filenames <including subdirectories>

    2. Create a 'process' that runs everyday that will scan the directory for changes compared to the list created in (1).

    3. Report changes.

    If someone could tell me how to get started on this and what s the best way to approach it, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    More help

    Can anyone break down the Win32 example and tell me what it is doing? I have an idea but I would like to know for sure. Where would I put in the directory and subdirectories that I want listed?

    Thanks

    Which bit?

    Anywhere you like.
    Array, vector, linked list - choose something.
