RTFM dude - I use stat and fstat all the time - they
work just fine. You probably forgot to create the
"struct stat" that it needs:
/* How big is the passwd file? */
int main ()
struct stat mybuffer ;
if ( stat ( "/etc/passwd", &mybuffer ) == 0 )
printf ( "The size of /etc/passwd is %db\n",
mybuffer.st_size ) ;
fprintf ( stderr, "Couldn't stat /etc/passwd\n" ) ;

Not if you create them with the right permissions. Once again,
RTFM, I use chdir a lot and it's OK.
