al_findfirst(3alleg4)            Allegro manual            al_findfirst(3alleg4)

       al_findfirst - Low-level function for searching files. Allegro game
       programming library.

       #include <allegro.h>

       int al_findfirst(const char *pattern, struct al_ffblk *info, int attrib);

       Low-level function for searching files. This function finds the first
       file which matches the given wildcard specification and file attributes
       (see above). The information about the file (if any) will be put in the
       al_ffblk structure which you have to provide. The al_ffblk structure
       looks like:

          struct al_ffblk
             int attrib;       - actual attributes of the file found
             time_t time;      - modification time of file
             char name[512];   - name of file

       There is some other stuff in the structure as well, but it is there for
       internal use only. Example:

          struct al_ffblk info;

          if (al_findfirst("*.pcx", &info, FA_ALL) != 0) {
             /* Tell user there are no PCX files. */

       The function returns non-zero if no match is found or if an error
       occurred and, in the latter case, sets `errno' accordingly. It returns
       zero if a match is found, allocating some memory for internal use in the
       structure.  Therefore you have to close your search when you are finished
       to avoid memory leaks in your program.
