NAME

       lfc_delfilesbypattern - delete the file entries selected by pattern matching on basename

SYNOPSIS

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

       int  lfc_delfilesbypattern  (const  char  *path,  const  char  *pattern,  int  force,  int
       *nbstatuses, struct lfc_filestatus **statuses)

DESCRIPTION

       lfc_delfilesbypattern deletes the file entries selected by pattern matching  on  basename.
       If replicas exist and the force argument is not zero, all replicas are first removed.

       path   specifies  the  logical  pathname relative to the current LFC directory or the full
              LFC pathname.

       pattern
              allows to restrict the list of files to be deleted to entries having  the  basename
              starting with this pattern.  pattern should be terminated by a %.

       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 lfc_filestatus structures allocated by
              the API. The client application is responsible  for  freeing  the  array  when  not
              needed anymore.

       struct lfc_filestatus {
            char      name[CA_MAXNAMELEN+1];
            int       errcode;
       };

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 directory 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
                      directory and

                      the file is not writable by the requestor and

                      the requestor does not have ADMIN privilege in the Cupv database.

       ENOMEM       Memory could not be allocated for marshalling the  request  or  unmarshalling
                    the reply.

       EFAULT       path, pattern, 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       The length of pattern exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SEINTERNAL   Database error.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.
