NAME

       lfc_delfilesbyname - delete the file entries corresponding to a list of path names

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include "lfc_api.h"

       int  lfc_delfilesbyname  (int nbfiles, const char **paths, int force, int *nbstatuses, int
       **statuses)

DESCRIPTION

       lfc_delfilesbyname deletes the file entries corresponding to a  list  of  path  names.  If
       replicas exist and the force argument is not zero, all replicas are first removed.

       nbfiles
              specifies the number of path names in the array paths.

       paths  specifies  the  list of logical path names relative to the current LFC directory or
              the list of full LFC path names.

       nbstatuses
              will be set to the number of replies in the array of statuses.

       statuses
              will be set to the address of an array of integer statuses allocated  by  the  API.
              The  client  application  is  responsible  for  freeing  the  array when not needed
              anymore.

RETURN VALUE

       This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation  failed.  In
       the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

       ENOENT       The named file does not exist.

       EACCES       Search  permission  is  denied  on  a  component  of the path prefix or write
                    permission is denied on the parent directory or the parent has the sticky bit
                    S_ISVTX set and

                      the  effective  user ID of the requestor does not match the owner ID of the
                      file and

                      the effective user ID of the requestor does not match the owner ID  of  the

       EFAULT       paths, nbstatuses or statuses is a NULL pointer.

       EEXIST       File has replicas and force is zero.

       ENOTDIR      A component of path prefix is not a directory.

       ENAMETOOLONG The length of path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of  a  path  component
                    exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.

       EINVAL       nbfiles is not strictly positive.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.
