The description of what it does makes sense, although I can't spot if that's actually what the code does.
Otherwise, LGTM.

Given that POSIX.1-2008tc2 says that ftw() is obsolete and applications should use nftw() instead, it seems better to have the example use nftw() instead.


can be used.


Not having a default in this switch feels somewhat uncomfortable, especially because POSIX says FTW_SL is a valid value here.

The example now uses nftw() instead of ftw().

Is is ready now?


Great idea! Thanks!




I've included all the types now into the switch.

Especially for example code it would be better to have defined behaviour for all values of typeflag. Consider that people might copy and paste.

@jilles, Hmmm, the example now has a case statement for every possible value of typeflag. I think I don't understand your comment. Am I missing something?

Paranoia in case the code is edited to remove cases or to add a flag (that does not exist yet) requesting a new typeflag value. Initializing type or adding a default would avoid that.
