NAME

       dpm - Python interface to the DPM

SYNOPSIS

       import dpm

DESCRIPTION

       The  dpm  module  permits you to access the DPM client interface from python programs. The
       dpm module is a swig wrapping of the standard C interface.  For detailed  descriptions  of
       each function see the individual man page of each function.

       There  follows  a  series of examples of how to use selected functions and how to retrieve
       the information returned by them: Examples are listing the  replicas  of  a  given  entry,
       reading the content of a directory, getting and setting ACLs. etc.

KNOWN BUGS

       The  current interface to the dpns_getcwd(3), dpns_readlink(3), dpns_seterrbuf(3) requires
       the passing of str object which is modified to contain the result (in a similar way to the
       C  functions, which accept a buffer).  However this breaks the immutability of python str.
       This will be changed in the future.
