So, what is not a regular file about this? Is there any way to find out
which files are being considered irregular?

    which files are being considered irregular?
    Regular files are the kind of files used to store bytes. Other kinds of files
    you might find in a file system include:

    directories
    symbolic links
    pipes (FIFOs)
    sockets (UNIX/LOCAL domain)
    character devices
    block devices
