I don't see any way to tell if a stream file is a regular file, a link,
or some sort of device file. Can anyone recommend a good method to

You should be able to look at the mode parameter to determine the file type.

That will tell you if the file is a block special file, character special file, directory, fifo, regular, symlink, socket, or native object.
