NAME

       arcls - list files or directories

DESCRIPTION

       The  arcls  command  is  used  for  listing  files in grid storage elements and file index
       catalogues.

SYNOPSIS

       arcls [options] url

OPTIONS

       -l, --long
              long format (like ls -l). The name of the object is  followed  by  these  elements:
              filetype  of  object, size in bytes, modification time, checksum and access latency
              (ONLINE or NEARLINE). The elements for which information is available is  protocol-
              dependent.

       -L, --locations
              show URLs of file locations (replicas) registered in index services.

       -m, --metadata
              list all available metadata.

       -r, --recursive
              operate recursively

       -D, --depth=level
              operate recursively up to specified level

       -n, --nolist
              show only description of requested object, do not list content of directories (like
              ls -d).

       -f, --forcelist
              treat requested object as directory and always try to list content

       -c, --checkaccess
              check readability of object. Retrieving and showing  information  about  object  is
              supressed.

       -P, --listplugins
              list the available plugins (protocols supported)

       -t, --timeout=seconds
              timeout in seconds (default 20)

       -z, --conffile=filename
              configuration file (default ~/.arc/client.conf)

       -d, --debug=debuglevel
              FATAL, ERROR, WARNING, INFO, VERBOSE or DEBUG

       -v, --version
              print version information

       -?, --help
              print help

ARGUMENTS

       url    the location to list

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

       The  arcls  command lists files and directories on grid storage elements and in file index
       catalogues. Depending on the installed libraries (check with -P ), the following protocols
       may  be  used:  file  (file://  prefix  may  be omitted), http, https, httpg, ftp, gsiftp,
       srm, root.

       In the case of a  directory/fileset,  attributes  of  objects  belonging  to  it  will  be
       retrieved, unless --nolist is specified.

       If  url starts from '@', the remainder should be a path to a local file containing list of
       URLs, one per line. Then arcls acts as if it was called multiple times, once for each URL.
       For  more  information on ARC URL syntax please read "Protocols, Uniform Resource Locators
       (URL) and Extensions Supported in ARC" [NORDUGRID-TECH-7]

FILES

       ~/.arc/client.conf
              Some options can be given default values by  specifying  them  in  the  ARC  client
              configuration  file.  By using the --conffile option a different configuration file
              can be used than the default.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       X509_USER_PROXY
              The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless the proxy is in
              a non-standard location.

       ARC_LOCATION
              The  location  where  ARC  is  installed  can be specified by this variable. If not
              specified the install location will be determined from  the  path  to  the  command
              being  executed,  and  if  this  fails a WARNING will be given stating the location
              which will be used.

       ARC_PLUGIN_PATH
              The location of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable.  Multiple  locations
              can  be  specified  by separating them by : (; in Windows). The default location is
              $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).
