On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately. <h3>ERRORS </h3> Depending on the file system, other errors can be returned. The more general errors are listed below: EPERM The process does not have execute permission on the directory. EFAULT path points outside your accessible address space. ENAMETOOLONG path is too long. EBADF The fd is not a valid file descriptor. ENOENT The file does not exist. ENOMEM Insufficient kernel memory was available. ENOTDIR A component of the path prefix is not a directory. EACCES Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix. ELOOP path contains a circular reference (i.e., via a symbolic link) </pre> <hr> <h3>SEE ALSO </h3><p> <a href=getcwd.htm>getcwd</a>, <a href=chroot.htm>chroot</a>, <pre> <h3>Linux 1.2.4 15 April 1995 1 </h3> </pre> <P> <hr> <p> <center> <table border=2 width=80%> <tr align=center> <td width=25%> <a href=../index.htm>Top</a> </td><td width=25%> <a href=../master_index.html>Master Index</a> </td><td width=25%> <a href=../SYNTAX/keywords.html>Keywords</a> </td><td width=25%> <a href=../FUNCTIONS/index.htm>Functions</a> </td> </tr> </table> </center> <p> <hr> This manual page was brought to you by <i>mjl_man V-2.0</i>
