i`m writing POSIX compatible code for my project but ran into one stoopid problem... how can i find files in my code? POSIX allows for file operation like fopen and such, that works, and for directory reading it has readdir and co. problem is only that readdir doesn`t tell me (or at least i can`t be assured a POSIX system can tell me), if a directory entry is a file or directory. anybody knows if there is a portable function for this or do i have to #ifdef my way to success?

i've seen this one, yeah.
only drawback is that i have to construct a full string each time i wanna check the file.
i hoped there is a shorter way (ok... except you chdir your way through, and except dirent struct has a d_type field).
