C program to list files of a directory

C program to list all files present in a directory/folder in which the executable file of this program is present. For example, if the executable file is present in C:\\TC\\BIN then it will list all the files present in C:\\TC\\BIN.

C programming code (Turbo C compiler only)

#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <dir.h>
 
int main()
{
   int done;
   struct ffblk a;
 
   printf("Press any key to view the files in the current directory\n");
 
   getch();
 
   done = findfirst("*.*", &a, 0); // The first '*' is for all file names and the second one is for all file extensions
 
   while(!done)
   {
      printf("%s\n", a.ff_name);
      done = findnext(&a);
   }
 
   getch();
   return 0;
}

Apparently, you will get a different output when you execute this file on your computer.
