closedir - close a directory
int closedir(DIR *dirp);
The closedir() function closes the directory stream associated with dirp. A successful call to closedir() also closes the underlying file descriptor associated with dirp. The directory stream descriptor dirp is not available after this call.
The closedir() function returns 0 on success. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
- Invalid directory stream descriptor dirp.
