    Exclamation Printing list of .txt files saved in directory

    i have been working with simple file i/o, and i want to be able to show the user a list of all the files they have created. i tried the
    system(dir *.txt), but it is a little sloppy. is there a way to print the filename only, and not all the other info?

    It depends on what your OS is and what platform your progamming for.
