It would be great if you could check if the program below is able to
display all directory entries on the Atari. Because that would help to
decide what type of cross-target workaround is appropriate.

Thanks in advance, Oliver

#include <stdio.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <dirent.h>

void main(void)
    DIR* dir;
    struct dirent* ent;

    dir = opendir(".");
    while (ent = readdir(dir)) {
        int f;

        printf("%s", ent->d_name);

        if (!_DE_ISREG(ent->d_type)) {
            printf(" skipped\n");

        if ((f = open(ent->d_name, O_RDONLY)) != -1) {
            printf(" opened\n");
