libssh2_sftp_stat_ex - get status about an SFTP file


#include <libssh2.h> #include <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);


sftp - SFTP instance as returned by libssh2_sftp_init(3) 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(3) will follow all symlinks, while libssh2_sftp_lstat(3) 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; };


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.


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.
