Generally, using opendir(), readdir(), and closedir() should do the
trick on any POSIX system.
You'll have to filter out filenames that don't contain a '.' manually,
Alternatively, you could use the BSD scandir() function- but it's likely
that some unices won't support it.

A general hint: If you want to do something and don't know how to do it,
try "apropos <topic>". This will often point you to man pages dealing with
this (or a related) topic.
