NAME
       getdirentries  - get directory entries in a filesystem-independent for‐
       mat

SYNOPSIS
       #include <dirent.h>

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

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

       getdirentries(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

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.

CONFORMING TO
       Not in POSIX.1-2001.  Present on the BSDs, and  a  few  other  systems.
       Use opendir(3) and readdir(3) instead.
