Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will probably need to use platform-specific functions to achieve that, but you did not specify what operating system the program will be running on.

More details are needed.

You might want to have a look at the <a href=”http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_38_0/libs/filesystem/doc/index.htm”>Boost Filesystem Library</a>, which provides some facilities to query and manipulate paths, files, and directories.

    Any reason you can't just use something that someone else has already written such as FileLocator Pro or Effective File Search?
