NAME

lfc_delfilesbypattern - delete the file entries selected by pattern matching on basename  

SYNOPSIS

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

int lfc_delfilesbypattern (const char *path, const char *pattern, int force, int *nbstatuses, struct lfc_filestatus **statuses)  

DESCRIPTION

lfc_delfilesbypattern deletes the file entries selected by pattern matching on basename. If replicas exist and the force argument is not zero, all replicas are first removed.
path
specifies the logical pathname relative to the current LFC directory or the full LFC pathname.
pattern
allows to restrict the list of files to be deleted to entries having the basename starting with this pattern. pattern should be terminated by a %.
nbstatuses
will be set to the number of replies in the array of statuses.
statuses
will be set to the address of an array of lfc_filestatus structures allocated by the API. The client application is responsible for freeing the array when not needed anymore.

struct lfc_filestatus {
        char            name[CA_MAXNAMELEN+1];
        int             errcode;
};
 

RETURN VALUE

This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
