NAME
       telldir - return current location in directory stream

SYNOPSIS
       #include <dirent.h>

       long telldir(DIR *dirp);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       telldir(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  telldir()  function returns the current location associated with the directory stream
       dirp.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, the telldir() function returns the current location in the  directory  stream.
       On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EBADF  Invalid directory stream descriptor dirp.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       In glibc up to version 2.1.1, the return type of telldir() was off_t.  POSIX.1-2001 speci-
       fies long, and this is the type used since glibc 2.1.2.
