NAME

       atNetworkPath, atLocalPath - network path handling

SYNOPSIS

       #include <atfs.h>
       #include <atfstk.h>

       char* atNetworkPath (Af_key *aso);

       char* atLocalPath (char *networkPath);

DESCRIPTION

       atNetworkPath  returns  a  network  wide  unique  pathname for aso. The
       pathname has the following structure
                     <hostname>:<canonical_pathname>@<version>.
       Hostname is the name of the host controlling the device, where  aso  is
       stored.  the  canonical pathname is the real pathname (without symbolic
       links), where the object is located on that host.  The version  number,
       including  the  introducing at-sign (@) is optional. For busy versions,
       it may be missing or the string busy

       atLocalPath maps a network path name to a local  path  name.  When  the
       host information in the network path denotes a remote host, atLocalPath
       looks up /etc/mtab for a mapping of the network canonical pathname to a
       local  path.  The  resulting  pathname  is  a  local  pathname in bound
       notation
                                 <pathname>[version]
       with the version number added in brackets. It may be converted into  an
       ASO descriptor by calling atBindVersion (manual page atbind(3)).

RETURN VALUE

       Both functions return the resulting string in static memory. The result
       will be overwritten on a subsequent call. On failure, a null pointer is
       returned.
