       lfc_getcomment - get the comment associated with a LFC file/directory in the name server


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

       int lfc_getcomment (const char *path, char *comment)


       lfc_getcomment gets the comment associated with a LFC file/directory in the name server.

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

              points at  a  buffer  to  receive  the  comment.   The  buffer  must  be  at  least
              CA_MAXCOMMENTLEN+1 characters long.


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


       ENOENT       The named directory does not exist or is a  null  pathname  or  there  is  no
                    comment associated with this path.

       EACCES       Search  permission  is denied on a component of the path prefix or the caller
                    effective user ID does not match the owner ID of the file or read  permission
                    on the file/directory itself is denied.

       EFAULT       path or comment is a NULL pointer.

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

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
