Two new code samples have been added to SourceLib:

Name: dir_sweep
Category: File_Handling
Purpose: Demonstrate how to sweep through a directory structure, using a recursive function that uses two callback functions which allow the calling routine a considerable amount of control over terminating the run, as well as the ability to collect information about the directories and files found in the sweep.
Keywords: C stat.h dirent.h unistd.h dirent stat getcwd chdir opendir readdir closedir directory sweep

Name: detecting_redirection
Category: Basics
Purpose: Demonstrate how to detect whether stdin, stdout, and stderr have been redirected.
Keywords: C unistd.h isatty stdin stdout stderr detecting redirection
