NAME
       getdirentries - get directory entries in a filesystem independent format

SYNOPSIS
       #define _BSD_SOURCE or #define _SVID_SOURCE
       #include <dirent.h>

       ssize_t getdirentries(int fd, char *buf, size_t nbytes , off_t *basep);

DESCRIPTION
       Read  directory	entries  from the directory specified by fd into buf.  At most nbytes are
       read.  Reading starts at offset *basep, and *basep is updated with the new position  after
       reading.

RETURN VALUE
       getdirentries  returns  the number of bytes read or zero when at the end of the directory.
       If an error occurs, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       See the Linux library source code for details.
