List files in a directory (recursively too!)

#include <stdio.h> #include <string.h> #include <dirent.h> void listFiles(const char* dirname) { DIR* dir = opendir(dirname); if (dir == NULL) { return; } printf("Reading files in: %s\n", dirname); struct dirent* entity; entity = readdir(dir); while (entity != NULL) { printf("%hhd %s/%s\n", entity->d_type, dirname, entity->d_name); if (entity->d_type == DT_DIR && strcmp(entity->d_name, ".") != 0 && strcmp(entity->d_name, "..") != 0) { char path[100] = { 0 }; strcat(path, dirname); strcat(path, "/"); strcat(path, entity->d_name); listFiles(path); } entity = readdir(dir); } closedir(dir); } int main(int argc, char* argv[]) { listFiles("."); return 0; }
