Filesystem from SFML?
« on: June 30, 2011, 10:42:16 pm »
I figured I'd ask here to double-check, but I'm guessing the answer is no. Anyway, is there a way to interact with the file system from SFML? Something basic, like finding the names of the files in a directory and the like. If not, what would a good way of doing it be? I think Boost has a library for that?

This feature request has already been discussed here, SFML won't provide file handling functionality in the near future.

There is currently a project called SFSL which aims to provide file system functions on top of SFML. Apart from that, Boost.Filesystem is an option.

Thank you for the link. Interesting. I should make better use of the search function.

Progress on SFSL has been slowed because I'm in the middle of a job transition, but I am still working on it!
