       libssh2_sftp_stat_ex - get status about an SFTP file


       #include <libssh2.h>
       #include <libssh2_sftp.h>

       int libssh2_sftp_stat_ex(LIBSSH2_SFTP *sftp, const char *path,
                                unsigned int path_len, int stat_type,
                                LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES *attrs);


       sftp - SFTP instance as returned by libssh2_sftp_init(3)

       path - Remote filesystem object to stat/lstat/setstat.

       path_len - Length of the name of the remote filesystem object to stat/lstat/setstat.

       stat_type - One of the three constants specifying the type of stat operation to perform:

       LIBSSH2_SFTP_STAT: performs stat(2) operation
       LIBSSH2_SFTP_LSTAT: performs lstat(2) operation
       LIBSSH2_SFTP_SETSTAT: performs operation to set stat info on file

       attrs  -  Pointer to a LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES structure to set file metadata from or into
       depending on the value of stat_type.

       Get or Set statbuf type data on a remote filesystem object.  When  getting  statbuf  data,
       libssh2_sftp_stat(3)  will  follow  all  symlinks, while libssh2_sftp_lstat(3) will return
       data about the object encountered, even if that object happens to be a symlink.

       The LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES struct looks like this:

           /* If flags & ATTR_* bit is set, then the value in this struct will be
            * meaningful Otherwise it should be ignored
           unsigned long flags;

           libssh2_uint64_t filesize;
           unsigned long uid;
           unsigned long gid;
           unsigned long permissions;
           unsigned long atime;
           unsigned long mtime;


       Returns 0 on success or negative on failure.   It  returns  LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN  when  it
       would  otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it isn't really a
       failure per se.


       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.


       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL - An invalid  SFTP  protocol  response  was  received  on  the
       socket, or an SFTP operation caused an errorcode to be returned by the server.
