C program to list files of a directory

C program to list all files, present in a directory/folder, in which its executable 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 program (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");


   done = findfirst("*.*", &a, 0); // The first '*' is for all file names and the second one is for all file extensions

      printf("%s\n", a.ff_name);
      done = findnext(&a);

   return 0;
