LFC_READDIRG(3) LFC Library Functions LFC_READDIRG(3)

NAME

lfc_readdirg - read LFC directory opened by lfc_opendir in the name server

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h>
#include "lfc_api.h"

struct lfc_direnstatg *lfc_readdirg (lfc_DIR *dirp)

DESCRIPTION

lfc_readdirg reads the LFC directory opened by lfc_opendir in the name server. This routine returns a pointer to a structure containing the current directory entry including the GUID associated.

struct lfc_direnstatg {
	u_signed64	fileid;
	char		guid[CA_MAXGUIDLEN+1];
	mode_t		filemode;
	int		nlink;		/* number of files in a directory */
	uid_t		uid;
	gid_t		gid;
	u_signed64	filesize;
	time_t		atime;		/* last access to file */
	time_t		mtime;		/* last file modification */
	time_t		ctime;		/* last metadata modification */
	short		fileclass;	/* not used */
	char		status;		/* ' ' --> online, 'm' --> migrated */
	char		csumtype[3];	/* "CS", "AD" or "MD" */
	char		csumvalue[33];
	unsigned short	d_reclen;	/* length of this entry */
	char		d_name[1];	/* basename in variable length */
};

lfc_readdirg caches a variable number of such entries, depending on the filename size, to minimize the number of requests to the name server.

dirp
specifies the pointer value returned by lfc_opendir.

RETURN VALUE

This routine returns a pointer to a structure containing the current directory entry if the operation was successful or NULL if the end of the directory was reached or if the operation failed. When the end of the directory is encountered, serrno is not changed. If the operation failed, serrno is set appropriately.

As lfc_readdirg returns a null pointer both at the end of the directory and on error, an application wishing to check for error situations should set serrno to 0, then call lfc_readdirg, then check serrno and if it is non-zero, assume an error has occurred.

ERRORS

EBADF
File descriptor in DIR structure is invalid.
EFAULT
dirp is a NULL pointer.
SECOMERR
Communication error.
ENSNACT
Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
