RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for dirhandle (redhat section 3pm)

DirHandle(3pm)			 Perl Programmers Reference Guide		   DirHandle(3pm)

NAME
       DirHandle - supply object methods for directory handles

SYNOPSIS
	   use DirHandle;
	   $d = new DirHandle ".";
	   if (defined $d) {
	       while (defined($_ = $d->read)) { something($_); }
	       $d->rewind;
	       while (defined($_ = $d->read)) { something_else($_); }
	       undef $d;
	   }

DESCRIPTION
       The "DirHandle" method provide an alternative interface to the opendir(), closedir(),
       readdir(), and rewinddir() functions.

       The only objective benefit to using "DirHandle" is that it avoids namespace pollution by
       creating globs to hold directory handles.

NOTES
       o   On Mac OS (Classic), the path separator is ':', not '/', and the current directory is
	   denoted as ':', not '.'. You should be careful about specifying relative pathnames.
	   While a full path always begins with a volume name, a relative pathname should always
	   begin with a ':'.  If specifying a volume name only, a trailing ':' is required.
