dpns_readdir - read DPNS directory opened by dpns_opendir in the name
struct dirent *dpns_readdir (dpns_DIR *dirp)
dpns_readdir reads the DPNS directory opened by dpns_opendir in the
name server. This routine returns a pointer to a structure containing
the current directory entry. dpns_readdir caches a variable number of
such entries, depending on the filename size, to minimize the number of
requests to the name server.
dirp specifies the pointer value returned by dpns_opendir.
Only the fields d_name, d_reclen and on some platforms d_namlen are
This routine returns a pointer to a structure containing the current
directory entry if the operation was successful or NULL if the end of
the directory was reached or if the operation failed. When the end of
the directory is encountered, serrno is not changed. If the operation
failed, serrno is set appropriately.
As dpns_readdir returns a null pointer both at the end of the directory
and on error, an application wishing to check for error situations
should set serrno to 0, then call dpns_readdir, then check serrno and
if it is non-zero, assume an error has occurred.
EBADF File descriptor in DIR structure is invalid.
EFAULT dirp is a NULL pointer.
SENOSHOST Host unknown.
SENOSSERV Service unknown.
SECOMERR Communication error.
ENSNACT Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
