DirHandle(3)           Perl Programmers Reference Guide           DirHandle(3)



NAME
       DirHandle - supply object methods for directory handles

SYNOPSIS
           use DirHandle;
           $d = new DirHandle ".";
           if (defined $d) {
               while (defined($_ = $d->read)) { something($_); }
               $d->rewind;
               while (defined($_ = $d->read)) { something_else($_); }
               undef $d;
           }


DESCRIPTION
       The DirHandle method provide an alternative interface to the opendir(),
       closedir(), readdir(), and rewinddir() functions.

       The only objective benefit to using DirHandle is that it avoids
       namespace pollution by creating globs to hold directory handles.
