3.2.170 telldir



This function returns the current position of the readdir routines on DIRHANDLE . This value may be given to seekdir to access a particular location in a directory. The function has the same caveats about possible directory compaction as the corresponding system library routine. This function may not be implemented everywhere that readdir is. Even if it is, no calculation may be done with the return value. It's just an opaque value, meaningful only to seekdir .
