NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

struct lfc_direnrep *lfc_readdirxr (lfc_DIR *dirp, char *se)  

DESCRIPTION

lfc_readdirxr 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 (basename, guid and filesize) and the replica information.

struct lfc_rep_info {
        u_signed64      fileid;
        char            status;
        char            *host;
        char            *sfn;
};

struct lfc_direnrep {
        u_signed64      fileid;
        char            guid[CA_MAXGUIDLEN+1];
        mode_t          filemode;
        u_signed64      filesize;
        int             nbreplicas;
        struct lfc_rep_info *rep;       /* array of replica info structures */
        unsigned short  d_reclen;       /* length of this entry */
        char            d_name[1];      /* basename in variable length */
};

lfc_readdirxr 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.
se
allows to restrict the replica entries to a given SE.
 

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_readdirxr 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_readdirxr, then check serrno and if it is non-zero, assume an error has occurred.  

ERRORS

EBADF
File descriptor in DIR structure is invalid.
ENOMEM
Memory could not be allocated for unmarshalling the reply.
EFAULT
dirp is a NULL pointer.
EINVAL
The length of se exceeds CA_MAXHOSTNAMELEN.
SENOSHOST
Host unknown.
SENOSSERV
Service unknown.
SECOMERR
Communication error.
ENSNACT
Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
