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.
