Who says "file handle" is preferred in the context of C stdio? In MS Windows maybe, but the C standard never mentions "handle" in the context of FILE objects. All references to handles outside the context of MS Windows should be corrected. FILE* is not a handle, it's a pointer to an object that controls a stream.

opendir() probably doesn't belong here.
It returns a 'DIR*', not an 'int', so I don't understand why it's listed. (OTOH, fdopendir() does belong here, and it's indeed mentioned.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 07:14, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
