I am trying to convert my function to C Code with Matlab Coder. but Matlab Coder cannot convert 'dir' command. But somehow I need to get at least the names of some .csv files in a folder. How can I do this without using dir command?

Ahmet - you may need to code this in C/C++.

You should assume that there will not be any MATLAB Coder support for anything that interfaces with the operating system, as MATLAB Coder is aimed at mostly embedded devices. Some functions do have support, with the likelihood increasing for functions that have an equivalent in the C standard library, but not even all of that is supported.
You will probably need to use coder.ceval or similar to put in a call... but remember that directory services are fairly operating system specific. Mac and Linux targets can use Posix directory facilities, but current Windows does not have a Posix library.

Maybe ls command would work

Below is the list of functions supported for code generation :
Please check if some thing from this list is useful to you.
Otherwise you can call the external C function that you have written using the below workflow :
