In list context, returns a list of all remaining entries from the directory.
- rewinddir dirhandle
Positions the directory at the beginning.
- seekdir dirhandle, pos
Sets the position for readdir on the directory. pos should be a file offset as returned by telldir.
- telldir dirhandle
Returns the position in the directory.
