    reading multiple files in C

    I have the following problem: My program is supposed to read data from files to an array. The files are numbered: capture[1].bmp,capture[2].bmp and so on. There are 24 of those files, and I really don't want to do the same step 24 times. Is there a way to write a loop along the lines of

    if i want to specify where my file is existing........................


    for (int i=1; i<25, i++);
    fp=fopen("c:\capture[i].bmp", "rb");
    In other words, is there a way to insert the "i" variable into the filename?

    Thank you for your insights.

    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.
