using readdir to count files in a directoryHelpful Member!

    struct S_Dir* dirp;
    struct dirent* direntp;

    dirp = opendir( "C:/WINDOWS/Desktop/OATS_MONITOR/OATS/usr/home/clf" );
    if( dirp != NULL ) {
        for(;;) {
            direntp = readdir( dirp);
            if( direntp == NULL ) break;

            printf( "%s\n", direntp->d_name );

        closedir(dirp );

I get errors saying:
ATS.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "void __cdecl closedir(struct S_Dir *)" (?closedir@@YAXPAUS_Dir@@@Z)
OATS.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "struct dirent * __cdecl readdir(struct S_Dir *)" (?readdir@@YAPAUdirent@@PAUS_Dir@@@Z)
OATS.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "struct S_Dir * __cdecl opendir(char *)" (?opendir@@YAPAUS_Dir@@PAD@Z)
Debug/OATS.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 3 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

OATS.exe - 4 error(s), 0 warning(s)

The Errors coming because of S_Dir. Use Struct DIR.
Try the following program.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <dirent.h>
int main()
        int count;
        struct DIR *d;
        if( (d = opendir(".")) != NULL)
                for(count = 0;  readdir(d) != NULL; count++);
        printf("\n %d", count);
        return 0;
