file creation (folder) help

P: n/a
This subject is probably simple to the readers, but I must be having one
hell of a mental block cause I am beating my head against a wall.

I need to create a simple folder tree that is about 3 levels deep and about
50 folders wide. The file (folder) names will have spaces in them, so if I
try to make a batch (.bat) file to use the mkdir command, I create a folder
for each word in the string..... not the desired output.

help point me in the right direction.....

Put quotes around each folder name.
e.g.,
mkdir "this is a test"

Sure. Since standard C++ knows not of folders (or mkdir for that
matter), you should ask in a forum dedicated to the platform on which
you're working.

Oops, sorry to add my response to a thread that knows not of mkdir. (I
just joined ~a week ago.) I should've responded directly to the sender
in this case... (question seemed innocent enough)
