Is the nftw(file tree walk) function available on Windows


I'm writing code to walk a directory and its subdirs on linux using nftw. Is the nftwfunction available on Windows?


Not as part of the standard Windows APIs, no.

Also note that <a href="http://linux.die.net/man/3/nftw" rel="nofollow">the manual page</a> claims:


Conforming To POSIX.1-2001, SVr4, SUSv1. POSIX.1-2008 marks ftw() as obsolete.


So it's perhaps not the best starting point even when targetting POSIX.

Still, <a href="http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/libgw32c.htm" rel="nofollow">this library</a> implements it for Windows.
