#include <dirent.h>void seekdir(DIR *dirp, long loc);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
DESCRIPTIONThe seekdir() function sets the location in the directory stream from which the readdir(2) call will start. The locargument should be a value returned by a call to telldir(3).
RETURN VALUEThe seekdir() function returns no value.
ATTRIBUTESFor an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
CONFORMING TOPOSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, 4.3BSD.
NOTESIn glibc up to version 2.1.1, the type of the locargument was off_t. POSIX.1-2001 specifies long, and this is the type used since glibc 2.1.2. See telldir(3) for information on why you should be careful in making any assumptions about the value in this argument.
