I am in need of a program written in VC++ 5.0. It must look for text files to appear in a directory. Preferably utilizing the ReadDirectoryChangesW API so as to return the filename. Then the file must be streamed into a buffer. The text files will all be of the same general format. This must be as fast as possible because the files will appear one after the other at a very fast rate. Therefore, the buffer should be able to hold a couple files in order for my parsing routine to catch up. I am open to suggestions per the procedure. Each file will be approximately 10KB to 17KB in size. The buffer should be loaded one line at a time because of the layout of the text file. A very simple program, but, I'm way to busy.
