The <sys/dirent.h> functions opendir(), readdir() and closedir() are not part

They are not ifdef'ed in <sys/dirent.h>, so I assume they should be present.

They were for the (once upon a time) SCO unix version, and were never implemented for DOS. The findfirst/findnext functions should deliver all the functionality needed, however.

Walter, Does this means it is possible to port the DM C/C++ compiler to unixy OSs? I'm just wondering if a Linux port could be added!! -- Cesar Rabak GNU/Linux User 52247. Get counted: http://counter.li.org/

Yes, it is very possible, but there weren't enough people interested in it to make the project worthwhile.
