       dpns_opendir - open a DPNS directory in the name server


       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include "dpns_api.h"

       dpns_DIR *dpns_opendir (const char *path)


       dpns_opendir  opens  a  DPNS  directory  in  the  name  server  to  be  used in subsequent
       dpns_readdir operations.  A dpns_DIR structure and a buffer to cache the directory entries
       are allocated in the client API.

       path   specifies  the  logical pathname relative to the current DPNS directory or the full
              DPNS pathname.


       This routine returns a pointer to be used in the subsequent directory  function  calls  if
       the  operation  was successful or NULL if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno
       is set appropriately.


       ENOENT       A component of path prefix does not exist or path is a null pathname.

       EACCES       Search permission is denied on  a  component  of  the  path  prefix  or  read
                    permission is denied on path.

       EFAULT       path is a NULL pointer.

       ENOTDIR      A component of path prefix is not a directory.

       ENAMETOOLONG The  length  of  path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of a path component
                    exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
