George Orwell

Hey, mattia :)

Here are the facts:

- You got the answer you were seeking from Antoninus Twink. That
should tell you whom to trust when it comes to who's trolling and
who isn't.
- You can, if you wish, post to BOTH comp.lang.c and comp.unix.programmer
to get more help from more people. That immediately shoots down the
argument concerning experts.
- comp.lang.c has no charter, so nobody here has any authority to dictate
topicality, whether by fiat or by informal clique-echo-chamber poll.
comp.lang.c does have a founding message that supports discussion
of C and topics tangential to C. People are free to interpret the
topicality of comp.lang.c as they wish. Some people here use their right
to see the newsgroup as restricted to ANSI/ISO C and use their right to
redirect posters to other newsgroups, whereas other people here (including
me) use their right to see the newsgroup as more liberal.

Those are the indisputable facts. I should point out that
some of the restricted-topicality "regulars" engage in inconsistent
and hypocritical behavior. For instance, they discuss algorithms
that, according to their restricted topicality, would best be
discussed on comp.programming or comp.theory.

As for your question, opendir/readdir/closedir is indeed the
way to go in most cases. This allows your code to work on POSIX

If you need any more help, simply post to both comp.lang.c and comp.unix.programmer,
and plenty of people will be happy to assist you. You don't need to worry
about the "regulars" ignoring you. For one, they're psychologically
unable to ignore anyone on this newsgroup. For two, even if they
did ignore you, you'd suffer no loss and would still be able to
find the help you need from a good chunk of broad-minded people
on this newsgroup, even if you were to exclude the people who
get called "trolls".

Hope that has helped you, and good luck with your C
programming. :)
