       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The
       Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior),
       or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       ftw.h — file tree traversal

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <ftw.h>

DESCRIPTION         top

       The <ftw.h> header shall define the FTW structure, which shall
       include at least the following members:

           int  base
           int  level

       The <ftw.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants
       for use as values of the third argument to the application-
       supplied function that is passed as the second argument to ftw()
       and nftw():

       FTW_F         Non-directory file.

       FTW_D         Directory.

       FTW_DNR       Directory without read permission.

       FTW_DP        Directory with subdirectories visited.

       FTW_NS        Unknown type; stat() failed.

       FTW_SL        Symbolic link.

       FTW_SLN       Symbolic link that names a nonexistent file.

       The <ftw.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants
       for use as values of the fourth argument to nftw():

       FTW_PHYS      Physical walk, does not follow symbolic links.
                     Otherwise, nftw() follows links but does not walk
                     down any path that crosses itself.

       FTW_MOUNT     The walk does not cross a mount point.

       FTW_DEPTH     All subdirectories are visited before the directory

       FTW_CHDIR     The walk changes to each directory before reading

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be
       defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

           int ftw(const char *, int (*)(const char *, const struct stat *,
               int), int);
           int nftw(const char *, int (*)(const char *, const struct stat *,
               int, struct FTW *), int, int);

       The <ftw.h> header shall define the stat structure and the
       symbolic names for st_mode and the file type test macros as
       described in <sys/stat.h>.

       Inclusion of the <ftw.h> header may also make visible all symbols
       from <sys/stat.h>.

       The following sections are informative.
