Listing directory contents with C++

Listing the contents of a directory is a basic functionality. However, there are no standard C++ function to do it. Usually, for this purpose additional libraries are used, such as Boost or wxWidgets, since they provide lots of useful functionalities. But this time I just needed that my code was able to get the directory contents in both Windows and Linux. I was not interested including a bunch of unnecessary stuff.

Thus, based on a article by Daniel Schuller, I wrote a small piece of portable code that read the contents of a directory. A link for downloading the source file are available bellow:
