EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

       The  arcrename  command renames files or directories on grid storage elements and indexing
       services. The path component of oldurl and newurl must differ and  it  must  be  the  only
       component of both URLs which is different.  arcrename will exit with an error if the paths
       are equivalent or other components of the  URLs  are  different.  Renaming  a  URL  to  an
       existing  URL  will  either fail or overwrite the existing URL, depending on the protocol.
       arcrename works purely at the namespace level and does not perform data transfer.

       For more information on ARC URL syntax please read "Protocols, Uniform  Resource  Locators
       (URL) and Extensions Supported in ARC" [NORDUGRID-TECH-7]

       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. However renaming is not supported or implemented for some of those protocols.

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).
