Library function to search for files on Linux


Does Linux have any function allowing for searching specified directories for a file with a specified name, just like pathfind() function on Solaris?

Thanks and regards,

Luu Vo.

But I want subroutines (functions), not user commands like find or locate.
Thanks,
Luu Vo.

"Linux have any function" I think you need to look at the programming language your working with and each has different way of handling functions for example in bash a function can be created just:
