    Smile Working with File Extensions.

    Hello,
    I want to create a program which scans the extensions of files located within its same directory and
    arranges them in a newly created folder. I have done something similar with V.B, but I am not too sure
    where to start in C++. I have worked with the language and created basic console programs, so I am not
    completely C++ illiterate :-) .

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you.

    Take a look at FindFirstFile, and FindNextFile.

    Correct me if I am wrong. The following line

    _tprintf(TEXT("Usage: %s [target_file]\n"), argv[0]);

    stores the target file name into the argv array?

    No, it is getting it out of there. printf prints, scanf scans.

    Re: Working with File Extensions.

    Well, thank you guys for your help. I have a better understanding on how to use findfirstfile and findfirstfilex , and got a
    crash course on support for unicode.
    Unfortunately, I think I am over my head, I can follow along the example provided, but I have no idea on where to even
    begin coding.
    So, time to hit the books a bit more and give this a try on another occasion.
    Thanks again for your help.
