Is there a simple way to create a folder using C ?

  1. May 13, 2004 #1
    Hi! :frown:
    I have 2 programming questions here. Hope you could help me with it.

    Q1) Is there a way to pre-specify the size and location of command prompt window that runs along with my application written using Visual C++ ? Be it using C or some batch command?

    Q2) Is there a simple way to create a folder using C ?


    Thank you,
    Yingtian.

    1) not that I'm aware of.

    2) #include <sys/types.h>
    #include <sys/stat.h>

    int mkdir (const char *path, mode_t mode);

    Thanks for your reply!

    For Q2), the mkdir u suggested seems to work only for unix? I forgot to say that I am using windows xp...so...is there an equivalent simple syntax for it?

    Regards,
    Yingtian.

    I'm pretty sure mkdir exists on windows as well.
