The functions FileFindFirst, FileFindNext, FileFindClose from the Windows API do not seem to be available in the MinGW libs. At least the linker is throwing errors on them. Can they be added?

    I believe you are looking for FindFirstFile (not FileFindFirst), FindNextFile and FindClose. They're there.

    Oh my, yes. These are wrapper functions I wrote for a platform independant layer, and since I am usually doing Windows builds with MS Visual C (just trying Eclipse + MinGW), I forgot to add the code wrapper to the make file. Thanks, solved and closed.

    No, they won't be added, The names of the winbase.h functions are:
    FindFirstFile, FindNextFilem, FindClose. Google them.

    *I* wrote a wrapper file and forgot to add it to *my* project's make file.

    *Think* before you post!
