The ftw() routine is a part of the XPG2, XPG3, XPG4, and XPG4v2 standards; nftw() and expanded ftw() use are part of XPG4v2, as well. These routines provide a "file tree walk" which is available on a number of other platforms (GNU libc based, Solaris libc based, AIX libc based, at least).
Import or author code to handle the ftw() and nftw() routines according to the listed specifications.
