There are a number of Unix/cygwin system routines for reading directory
entries (filenames) – opendir, readdir, closedir for example.
It sounds as if, for your problem, the scandir routine may be the
easiest to use. Get a good book on Unix system programming or refer
to the man pages on a Linux box. (The Linux man page re scandir has
an example that is particularly helpful.) Good luck!
