Linux 2.6 - man page for fchdir (linux section 3posix)

FCHDIR(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual				FCHDIR(P)

NAME
       fchdir - change working directory

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       int fchdir(int fildes);

DESCRIPTION
       The  fchdir() function shall be equivalent to chdir() except that the directory that is to
       be the new current working directory is specified by the file descriptor fildes.

       A conforming application can obtain a file descriptor for a file of type  directory  using
       open(),	provided  that	the file status flags and access modes do not contain O_WRONLY or
       O_RDWR.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, fchdir() shall return 0. Otherwise, it shall return -1 and set
       errno  to  indicate  the  error.  On  failure  the  current working directory shall remain
       unchanged.

ERRORS
       The fchdir() function shall fail if:

       EACCES Search permission is denied for the directory referenced by fildes.

       EBADF  The fildes argument is not an open file descriptor.

       ENOTDIR
	      The open file descriptor fildes does not refer to a directory.

       The fchdir() may fail if:

       EINTR  A signal was caught during the execution of fchdir().

       EIO    An I/O error occurred while reading from or writing to the file system.
