File search with C

Jeeez I'm crap

I knew I was rusty but this is beyond rusty!

I've written a quick function to search for 2000 files through 27 directories...

Maybe I should have spent a little more time on it because in 50 mins it's only found 227 of the 2000!!!

Hi Brakus,

If this is a quick function, what's the slow one like?

. Allow me to rephrase:


I've hastily written a function which is neither quick or functional !

Brakus - Its not doing something mistakenly like once its found a file it goes back to the start position and searchs onwards thru all its just dismissed in the previous search until it finds the next file ? etc...

Perhaps you want to past some code for our perusal ?

That's a fair suggestion. I wrote an iterative program once which converged slower than expected. It turned out to have a similar type of bug.

That's a good idea too.

Sorry gents, missed your replies...

I'm at work so can't post the actual code, but it checks each file against 27 directories eg.

Code:
 
while(!FILE && x<27)
{
strcpy(path,directory[x])
strcat(path,filename)
FILE = fopen(path,r)
x++;
}
Don't laugh, I know it's messy ( and obviously inneficient!)

I've put this to a side for a moment while I finish some other bits of the app. but will have to get back to it soon
