Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
Since glibc 2.10:
_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L
Before glibc 2.10:
The renameat() system call operates in exactly the same way as
rename(2), except for the differences described in this manual page.
If the pathname given in oldpath is relative, then it is interpreted
relative to the directory referred to by the file descriptor olddirfd
(rather than relative to the current working directory of the calling
process, as is done by rename(2) for a relative pathname).
If oldpath is relative and olddirfd is the special value AT_FDCWD, then
oldpath is interpreted relative to the current working directory of the
calling process (like rename(2)).
If oldpath is absolute, then olddirfd is ignored.
The interpretation of newpath is as for oldpath, except that a relative
pathname is interpreted relative to the directory referred to by the
file descriptor newdirfd.
On success, renameat() returns 0. On error, -1 is returned and errno
is set to indicate the error.
The same errors that occur for rename(2) can also occur for renameat().
The following additional errors can occur for renameat():
EBADF olddirfd or newdirfd is not a valid file descriptor.
oldpath is relative and olddirfd is a file descriptor referring
to a file other than a directory; or similar for newpath and
renameat() was added to Linux in kernel 2.6.16.
