Scanning directory tree - too slow

I wrote a recursive algorythm to scan a comlete directory structure
(2-3 levels deep) with few hundred pictures in it (i just need to store
filenames in a cache file). it's taking forewer :(. i used readdir
function. Any idea to a faster solution?

ps.: sorry for my English.

Hi,

Is it really that slow?
I used that approach a few times and it was very fast...

Can you show us some code?


ps.: sorry for my English.


No problem, it is no worse than mine. ;-)
