MSVC doesn't have readdir().

MinGW has readdir(), but the d_type field isn't present.

POSIX only specifies d_name; d_type originates from BSD, and isn't
generally found on SysV-derived Unices. Even on Linux, only some
filesystems support it.

If you want better portability at the expense of performance, use
stat() rather than the d_type field.
