Well, as a little project, I am converting the viewer that comes with Darkmatter2 to C using DGSDK. I have made the first pass converting it but I have aslight sticking point. The problems center around the file system and arrays. First off, I am not good at DB, and I am a MFC guy. If I could use the MFC, I would be done.... Anyway I need to get the list of .x files from the directory and put the filenames into an array.
Does anyone have any c code to stuff the filenames in a directory into an array?

thanx

First off...read the EULA, your not allowed to make anything but a game with DarkSDK! So, I doubt we can help you with that...
Second, that is some of the most basic C, go learn C and it will be easy! Just simple I/O

Well yeah you could write something in pure C++ to read filenames and put them into an array but we're talking about using the Dark SDK here so why not use one of the built int functions like dbCheckListForFiles which loads filenames in to the built in Checklist automatically.
And I don't think his question necessarily violates the EULA if he were writing a viewer that was to possible be used in a game. Think of all the "viewers" that are used in games; text, image, 3D model, directory (eg. Load/Save your game).

Thanx for the help. dbCheckListForFiles looks interesting, but it does not appear in the help file, or any examples I found. The include file just has:

void dbCheckListForFiles ( void );

Does anyone have a code snippet I can look at?

thanx

It would be much better to use Windows FindFirstFile & FindNextFile.

Here's a snippet to read files in the current directory.
