telldir - return current location in directory stream
#include <dirent.h> long telldir(DIR *dirp); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): telldir(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE
The telldir() function returns the current location associated with the directory stream dirp.
On success, the telldir() function returns the current location in the directory stream. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
EBADF Invalid directory stream descriptor dirp.
In glibc up to version 2.1.1, the return type of telldir() was off_t. POSIX.1-2001 specifies long, and this is the type used since glibc 2.1.2.
