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

NAME
       rewinddir - reset the position of a directory stream to the beginning of a directory

SYNOPSIS
       #include <dirent.h>

       void rewinddir(DIR *dirp);

DESCRIPTION
       The  rewinddir()  function  shall reset the position of the directory stream to which dirp
       refers to the beginning of the directory. It shall also	cause  the  directory  stream  to
       refer  to  the  current state of the corresponding directory, as a call to opendir() would
       have done. If dirp does not refer to a directory stream, the effect is undefined.

       After a call to the fork() function, either the parent or child (but not  both)	may  con-
       tinue processing the directory stream using readdir(), rewinddir(), or seekdir().  If both
       the parent and child processes use these functions, the result is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The rewinddir() function shall not return a value.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The rewinddir() function should be used in  conjunction	with  opendir(),  readdir(),  and
       closedir() to examine the contents of the directory. This method is recommended for porta-
       bility.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
