NAME

       telldir - return current location in directory stream

SYNOPSIS

       #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

DESCRIPTION

       The  telldir()  function returns the current location associated with the directory stream
       dirp.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, the telldir() function returns the current location in the  directory  stream.
       On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

       EBADF  Invalid directory stream descriptor dirp.

CONFORMING TO

       4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES

       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.
