.TH direntry 3
.SH NAME
direntry \- read directory entries
.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <direntry.h>

DIR *\fBopendir\fP(\fIfn\fR);

struct direntry *\fBreaddir\fP(\fIdir\fP);

void \fBclosedir\fP(\fIdir\fP);

DIR *\fIdir\fR;
.br
char *\fIfn\fR;
.SH DESCRIPTION
The point of
.B direntry.h
is to provide a uniform interface to BSD's
.B sys/dir.h
and POSIX's
.BR dirent.h .

The
.B readdir
interface is highly unsatisfactory.
It does not distinguish between I/O errors and end-of-directory.
It uses
.BR malloc .
The return type for
.B closedir
varies: some implementations return the
.B close
return value.
