       Net::SSH2::SFTP - SSH 2 Secure FTP object


       An SFTP object is created by the Net::SSH2 "sftp" method.

       Returns the last SFTP error (one of the LIBSSH2_FX_* constants).  Use this when
       Net::SSH2::error returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL.  In list context, returns (code,
       error name).

   die_with_error( [message] )
       Calls "die" with the given message and the error information from the object appended.

   open ( file [, flags [, mode ]]] )
       Open or create a file on the remote host.  The flags are the standard O_RDONLY, O_WRONLY,
       O_RDWR, O_APPEND, O_CREAT, O_TRUNC, and O_EXCL, which may be combined as usual.  Flags
       default to O_RDONLY and mode to 0666 (create only).  Returns a Net::SSH2::File object on

   opendir ( dir )
       Open a directory on the remote host; returns a Net::SSH2::Dir object on success.

   unlink ( file )
       Delete the remote file.

   rename ( old, new [, flags ] )
       Rename old to new.  Flags are taken from LIBSSH2_SFTP_RENAME_*, and may be combined; the
       default is to use all (overwrite, atomic, native).

   mkdir ( path [, mode ] )
       Create directory; mode defaults to 0777.

   rmdir ( path )
       Remove directory.

   stat ( path [, follow ] )
       Get file attributes for the given path.  If follow is set (default), will follow symbolic
       links.  On success, returns a hash containing the following:


   setstat ( path, key, value... )
       Set file attributes for given path; keys are the same as those returned by stat; note that
       it's not necessary to pass them all.

   symlink ( path, target [, type ] )
       Create a symbolic link to a given target.

   readlink ( path )
       Return the target of the given link, undef on failure.

   realpath ( path )
       Resolve a filename's path; returns the resolved path, or undef on error.



       Check Net::SFTP::Foreign for a high level, perlish and easy to use SFTP client module. It
       can work on top of Net::SSH2 via the Net::SFTP::Foreign::Backend::Net_SSH2 backend module.
