Description

There's currently no mention of `quit' member of the struct FTW, as well as possible values, which are:

#define    FTW_SKD        1
#define    FTW_FOLLOW    2
#define    FTW_PRUNE    4

You're referring to nftw(3C)?
Update - never mind, misread the title.

The "quit" field, which defaults to zero, is used to set the status member of the FTW structure used. This behavior is already documented in ftwalk(3). Perhaps we should indicate that "quit" is used to the "status" and refer to ftwalk(3) for the available values?

Note: available values are: FTW_AGAIN, FTW_NOPOST, FTW_SKIP, and FTW_FOLLOW.

As per feedback received on developer@, the `quit` member is not standard, probably private, so it shouldn't be documented at all, so I'm closing this issue.
