DirHandle(3)	       Perl Programmers	Reference Guide		  DirHandle(3)

NAME
       DirHandle - supply object methods for directory handles

SYNOPSIS
	   use DirHandle;
	   $d =	DirHandle->new(".");
	   if (defined $d) {
	       while (defined($_ = $d->read)) {	something($_); }
	       $d->rewind;
	       while (defined($_ = $d->read)) {	something_else($_); }
	       undef $d;
	   }

DESCRIPTION
       The "DirHandle" method provide an alternative interface to the
       opendir(), closedir(), readdir(), and rewinddir() functions.

       The only	objective benefit to using "DirHandle" is that it avoids
       namespace pollution by creating globs to	hold directory handles.
