comment What is the technical term for current (.) and parent (..) directory?
@slhck POSIX calls it a file, but does that for ANY file-system object. File in POSIX terminology should usually be read as an abbreviation of "file system object". In early Unix and it's derivates all FSO's where indeed really files, but that is not true for some modern implementations and certainly not for non-Unix, but POSIX compliant Operating Systems (Windows NT as most obvious example). -- I probably should have written "is a regular file" instead of "valid file" in my comment, but the comment of Max Truxa makes it a moot point anyway.

comment What is the technical term for current (.) and parent (..) directory?
. and .. are NOT filenames at all, but folders. Why don't you just check if the input is a valid file (type according to stat() is IF_REG) ? P.S. This is probably more suited to StackOverflow

comment Detect a signal on USB without specific hardware?
By far the easiest method is to use a parallel port and hook up the printer busy or paper-out pins to the circuit to monitor. (With proper electrical safeguards to prevent blowing up the port of course.) If the computer doesn't have a parallel port a USB2parallel adapter can serve the same purpose.
