[1mdpns_DIR *dpns_opendir (const char *[4m[22mpath[24m[1m)[0m

[1mdpns_opendir [22mopens a DPNS directory in the name server to be used in
subsequent [1mdpns_readdir [22moperations. A [1mdpns_DIR [22mstructure and a buffer
to cache the directory entries are allocated in the client API.

[4mpath[24m specifies the logical pathname relative to the current DPNS
directory or the full DPNS pathname.

This routine returns a pointer to be used in the subsequent directory
function calls if the operation was successful or NULL if the operation
failed. In the latter case, [1mserrno [22mis set appropriately.

[1mENOENT [22mA component of [4mpath[24m prefix does not exist or [4mpath[24m is a
null pathname.

[1mEACCES [22mSearch permission is denied on a component of the [4mpath[0m
prefix or read permission is denied on [4mpath[24m.

[1mEFAULT [4m[22mpath[24m is a NULL pointer.

[1mENOTDIR [22mA component of [4mpath[24m prefix is not a directory.

[1mENAMETOOLONG [22mThe length of [4mpath[24m exceeds [1mCA_MAXPATHLEN [22mor the length of
a [4mpath[24m component exceeds [1mCA_MAXNAMELEN[22m.

[1mSENOSHOST [22mHost unknown.

[1mSENOSSERV [22mService unknown.

[1mSECOMERR [22mCommunication error.

[1mENSNACT [22mName server is not running or is being shutdown.
