NAME

libssh2_sftp_stat_ex - get status about an SFTP file

SYNOPSIS

#include <libssh2.h> lt;libssh2_sftp.h>

int libssh2_sftp_stat_ex(LIBSSH2_SFTP *sftp, const char *path,   unsigned int path_len, int stat_type,   LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES *attrs);

DESCRIPTION

sftp - SFTP instance as returned by libssh2_sftp_init,

path - Remote filesystem object to stat/lstat/setstat.

path_len - Length of the name of the remote filesystem object to stat/lstat/setstat.

stat_type - One of the three constants specifying the type of stat operation to perform:


LIBSSH2_SFTP_STAT: performs stat(2) operation
LIBSSH2_SFTP_LSTAT: performs lstat(2) operation
LIBSSH2_SFTP_SETSTAT: performs operation to set stat info on file

attrs - Pointer to a LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES structure to set file metadata from or into depending on the value of stat_type.

Get or Set statbuf type data on a remote filesystem object. When getting statbuf data, libssh2_sftp_stat, will follow all symlinks, while libssh2_sftp_lstat, will return data about the object encountered, even if that object happens to be a symlink.

The LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES struct looks like this:

struct LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES {   /* If flags & ATTR_* bit is set, then the value in this struct will be   * meaningful Otherwise it should be ignored   */   unsigned long flags;

  libssh2_uint64_t filesize;   unsigned long uid;   unsigned long gid;   unsigned long permissions;   unsigned long atime;   unsigned long mtime; };

RETURN VALUE

Returns 0 on success or negative on failure. It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it isn't really a failure per se.

ERRORS

LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC - An internal memory allocation call failed.

LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_TIMEOUT -

LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL - An invalid SFTP protocol response was received on the socket, or an SFTP operation caused an errorcode to be returned by the server.
