 POSIX scandir function

I am trying to port scandir to POSIX.  The only thing I lack now is
the file descriptor for the DIR * in POSIX.  Does anyone know of a
way to optain it?

Right now it stands:

DIR *dirp;

fstat(dirp->dd_fd, &stb);

BSD supports the file descriptor information in the sturct DIR.  I
was wondering if there was a way to obtain that in POSIX.

 POSIX scandir function

Nobody does, because there doesn't have to be one.  POSIX does not
mandate that opendir() opens a file descriptor.
