File ownership check

Hello;

I want to write a C program that check file ownership in /bin
directory(ls, mkdir...). But I don't know how I start. I'm happy with
your helping.

Do you want to check whether you have ownership, or just print who
has ownership?

Sorry, but there isn't any function to determine the "ownerships" of
file in C (and also no function to list directories etc.), so you
need some system-specific extensions. Since what you write looks a
bit like you're using some UNIX-like system comp.unix.programmer
would probably be the right group to ask (and where you might get told
to use the stat(2) function).
Regards, Jens
