NAME

       seekdir - set the position of the next readdir() call in the directory stream.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <dirent.h>

       void seekdir(DIR *dirp, long offset);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       seekdir(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

       The  seekdir()  function  sets  the  location  in the directory stream from which the next
       readdir(2) call will  start.   seekdir()  should  be  used  with  an  offset  returned  by
       telldir(3).

RETURN VALUE

       The seekdir() function returns no value.

CONFORMING TO

       4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES

       In  glibc  up  to  version 2.1.1, the type of the offset argument was off_t.  POSIX.1-2001
       specifies long, and this is the type used since glibc 2.1.2.
