telldir

See the current Perl documentation for telldir.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


telldir - get current seekpointer on a directory handle



telldir DIRHANDLE



Returns the current position of the readdir() routines on DIRHANDLE. Value may be given to seekdir() to access a particular location in a directory. Has the same caveats about possible directory compaction as the corresponding system library routine.
