NAME
       closedir	- close	a directory

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<sys/types.h>

       #include	<dirent.h>

       int closedir(DIR	*dirp);

DESCRIPTION
       The  closedir()	function  closes  the directory	stream associated with
       dirp.  A	successful call	to closedir() also closes the underlying  file
       descriptor  associated with dirp.  The directory	stream descriptor dirp
       is not available	after this call.

RETURN VALUE
       The closedir() function returns 0 on success.   On  error,  -1  is  re-
       turned, and errno is set	appropriately.

ERRORS
       EBADF  Invalid directory	stream descriptor dirp.
