Hi Anton,

See the following functions in TSystem (with concrete implementations in TUnixSystem and TWinNTSystem:

    //---- Directories

    virtual int             MakeDirectory(const char *name);
    virtual void           *OpenDirectory(const char *name);
    virtual void            FreeDirectory(void *dirp);
    virtual const char     *GetDirEntry(void *dirp);
    virtual void           *GetDirPtr() const { return 0; }

To see an example of use, see class TSystemDirectory, eg
