    file scanning?

    I know how to delete a file, but I can't really find any functions you can use to scan for files. I found some scripts other people wrote, but they all deal with classes they've made, but they don't tell you anything about the class. I need to have some way of checking directory and file names and searching all files in certain directories. Can anyone explain how I go about doing this?

    Consult the NRA

    That's Never Read Answer's in case you're wondering.

    Code:
    #include <rider.h>
    #include <sunset.h>
    int main ( ) { play("yeehaaaa.wav"); }
