Need C sources for directory manipulation

Help!  I have unsuccessfully been trying to figure out how to
manipulate directories under UNIX in such a way that the code
will be reasonably compatible with Version 7, System III, System
V, and BSD 4.X.  There are three functions that I have not
been able to figure out:

1)  rename(old,new);  /* renames file "old" to file name "new" */

2)  initdir(), readdir(); /* routines to initialize a directory search
			     and return the next matching file name */

3)  getcurdir();      /* get current directory path name */

If anyone has sources which implement one or more of these functions
(hopefully portable),  could you please send them to me via electronic
mail?  Thanks in advance.
