NAME

dpns_opendir - open a DPNS directory in the name server  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h>
#include "dpns_api.h"

dpns_DIR *dpns_opendir (const char *path)  

DESCRIPTION

dpns_opendir opens a DPNS directory in the name server to be used in subsequent dpns_readdir operations. A dpns_DIR structure and a buffer to cache the directory entries are allocated in the client API.
path
specifies the logical pathname relative to the current DPNS directory or the full DPNS pathname.

A component of path prefix does not exist or path is a null pathname.
EACCES
Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix or read permission is denied on path.
EFAULT
path is a NULL pointer.
ENOTDIR
