Well, to start with, look up readdir(3) in your manpages, as well as opendir.

Hi,
You can do it using FTW (file tree walk), do man ftw to get more details. using the api ftw, u can give the directory name and a pointer to a function, in the function use must print the file name. It is very easy. hope this will help you.
