lfc_stat - get information about a LFC file or directory in the name server
int lfc_lstat (const char *path, struct lfc_filestat *statbuf)
int lfc_stat (const char *path, struct lfc_filestat *statbuf)
int lfc_statx (const char *path, struct lfc_fileid *file_uniqueid, struct lfc_filestat *statbuf)
lfc_stat gets information about a LFC file or directory in the name server.
lfc_lstat is identical to lfc_stat except for symbolic links. lfc_lstat retrieves information about the link itself, while lfc_stat gets information about the file/directory referenced by the symbolic link.
lfc_statx returns the same information plus the file unique id (name server hostname and file id). The file can be specified by path name or by file_uniqueid. If both are given, file_uniqueid is used.
- specifies the logical pathname relative to the current LFC directory or the full LFC pathname.
The structure pointed to by statbuf contains the following members:
mode_t filemode; /* see below */
int nlink; /* number of files in a directory */
time_t atime; /* last access to file */
time_t mtime; /* last file modification */
time_t ctime; /* last metadata modification */
short fileclass; /* 1--> experiment, 2 --> user */
char status; /* '-' --> online, 'm' --> migrated */
filemode is constructed by OR'ing the bits defined in <sys/stat.h> under Unix or "statbits.h" under Windows/NT:
S_IFREG 0x8000 regular file
S_IFDIR 0x4000 directory
S_ISUID 0004000 set user ID on execution
S_ISGID 0002000 set group ID on execution
S_ISVTX 0001000 sticky bit
S_IRUSR 0000400 read by owner
S_IWUSR 0000200 write by owner
S_IXUSR 0000100 execute/search by owner
S_IRGRP 0000040 read by group
S_IWGRP 0000020 write by group
S_IXGRP 0000010 execute/search by group
S_IROTH 0000004 read by others
S_IWOTH 0000002 write by others
S_IXOTH 0000001 execute/search by others
This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
- The named file/directory does not exist or is a null pathname.
- Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix.
- path or statbuf is a NULL pointer.
- A component of path prefix is not a directory.
- The length of path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of a path component exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.
- Host unknown.
- Service unknown.
- Communication error.
- Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
