Is is possable to find out where the app bundle is located? If so there how would you get the file refrence to the folder that the app is in?

if not... cocoa sucks :ouch:

[edit] also how do you load the file names from a folder into adn array and get the # of files in the folder?

Just replace the JString with a char* I believe.
CFStringRef str;
JString returnval;
CFBundleRef mainBundle = CFBundleGetMainBundle();
CFURLRef bundleLocation = CFBundleCopyBundleURL(mainBundle);
str = CFURLCopyPath(bundleLocation);
returnval = CFStringGetCStringPtr(str,kCFStringEncodingMacRoman);

NSBundle *bundle = [NSBundle mainBundle];
//to get a particular file in the bundle's resources:
NSString *path1 = [bundle pathForResource:@"readme" ofType:@"txt"];

//to get a file in a subdir:
NSString *path2 = [bundle pathForResource:@"level2" ofType:@"txt" inDirectory:@"levels"];

//to get just the path to the resources:
NSString *toppath = [bundle resourcePath];

//to get that array of files in your resource directory:
NSArray *files = [[NSFileManager defaultManager] directoryContentsAtPath:toppath];

make sense?
