SYNOPSIS
       #include	<sys/types.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The  opendir()  function	 opens a directory stream corresponding	to the
       directory name, and returns a pointer to	 the  directory	 stream.   The
       stream is positioned at the first entry in the directory.

RETURN VALUE
       The  opendir()  function	 returns  a pointer to the directory stream or
       NULL if an error	occurred.

ERRORS
       EACCES Permission denied.

       EMFILE Too many file descriptors	in use by process.

       ENFILE Too many files are currently open	in the system.

       ENOMEM Insufficient memory to complete the operation.

NOTES
       The underlying file descriptor of the directory stream can be  obtained
       using dirfd(3).
