NAME

PerlIO::dir - Reads directories

SYNOPSIS

        open my $dirh, '<:dir', '.';

        binmode $dirh, ':encoding(cp932)'; # OK

        my @dirs = <$dirh>; # added "\n" at the end of the name
        chomp @dirs; # if necessary

DESCRIPTION

PerlIO::dir provides an interface to directory reading functions, opendir(), readdir(), rewinddir and closedir().

However, there is an important difference between :dir and Perl's readdir(). This layer appends a newline code, \n, to the end of the name, because readline() requires input separators. Call chomp() if necessary.

You can use seek($dirh, 0, 0) for rewinddir().
