Linux 2.6 - man page for seekdir (linux section 3)

SEEKDIR(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			       SEEKDIR(3)

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

SYNOPSIS
       #include <dirent.h>

       void seekdir(DIR *dirp, long loc);

   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 read-
       dir(2) call will start.	The loc argument should be a value returned by a previous call to
       telldir(3).

RETURN VALUE
       The seekdir() function returns no value.

ATTRIBUTES
   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The seekdir() function is thread-safe.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       In glibc up to version 2.1.1, the type of the loc argument was off_t.  POSIX.1-2001 speci-
       fies long, and this is the type used since glibc 2.1.2.	See telldir(3) for information on
       why you should be careful in making any assumptions about the value in this argument.

SEE ALSO
       lseek(2), closedir(3), opendir(3), readdir(3), rewinddir(3), scandir(3), telldir(3)
