Directory Scanning

Output full pathname of all files in 'path' and subdirs:

// link with -lboost_filesystem
#include <boost/filesystem/operations.hpp>
#include <iostream>
using namespace boost::filesystem;
using namespace std;

class NoSuchPathException {};
void findFiles(const string& path) throw(NoSuchPathException) {

    if(!exists(path)) throw(NoSuchPathException());

    // for all dirs
    directory_iterator end_itr; // default construction yields past-the-end
    for(directory_iterator i(path); i != end_itr; ++i) {

        // if dir, recurse
        if(is_directory(*i)) findFiles(i->string());

        // output file name
        else cout << i->string();
