NAME

       CosFileTransfer_FileTransferSession     -     This     module     implements    the    OMG
       CosFileTransfer::FileTransferSession interface.

DESCRIPTION

       To get access to the record definitions for the structures use:
       -include_lib("cosFileTransfer/include/*.hrl").

EXPORTS

       '_get_protocols_supported'(FTS) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = #objref
                 Return         =         [#'CosFileTransfer_ProtocolSupport'{protocol_name=Type,
                 addresses=[Address]}]
                 Type = Address = string()

              This read only attribute returns the protocols supported by the target object.

       set_directory(FTS, Directory) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = Directory = #objref
                 Return = ok | {'EXCEPTION, E}

              Invoking  this  operation  will  change the current working directory of the target
              object's associated file system. If fail to do  so  the  appropriate  exception  is
              raised.

       create_file(FTS, FileNameList) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = #objref
                 FileNameList = [string()]
                 Return = File | {'EXCEPTION, E}
                 File = #objref

              This  operation  creates  a  File  Object  representing a file which may or may not
              exist. For this operation to be independent of the working directory  the  supplied
              FileNameList must represent the absolute name.

       create_directory(FTS, FileNameList) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = #objref
                 FileNameList = [string()]
                 Return = Directory | {'EXCEPTION, E}
                 Directory = #objref

              This  operation  creates  a  new  directory  in  the target objects associated file
              systems domain. If fail to do so an exception  is  raised  but,  if  successful,  a
              Directory object representing the new directory is returned.

       get_file(FTS, FileNameList) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = #objref
                 FileNameList = [string()]
                 Return = FileWrapper | {'EXCEPTION, E}
                 FileWrapper = #'CosFileTransfer_FileWrapper'{the_file = File file_type = Type}
                 File = #objref
                 Type = nfile | ndirectory

              This  operation,  creates  a  FileWrapper which represents a file or directory, and
              should be independent of the working Directory, i.e., a  full  path  name  must  be
              supplied.  Furthermore,  the file or directory represented by the FileNameList must
              exist.

       delete(FTS, File) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = File = #objref
                 Return = ok | {'EXCEPTION', E}

              This operation removes the file or directory, represented by the File object,  from
              the  target  objects associated file system. If it is a non-empty directory or non-
              existing file or directory an exception is raised.

       transfer(FTS, SourceFile, DestinationFile) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = SourceFile = DestinationFile = #objref
                 Return = ok | {'EXCEPTION', E}

              If the target object's and the DestinationFile's  associated  FileTransferSession's
              support  the  same protocol(s) this operation will copy the file represented by the
              SourceFile from the target object's file  system  to  a  file  in  the  destination
              FileTransferSession's  file  system. The file is represented by the DestinationFile
              object and may not exist. This operation must be invoked on the FileTransferSession
              associated with the SourceFile object.

       append(FTS, SourceFile, DestinationFile) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = SourceFile = DestinationFile = #objref
                 Return = ok | {'EXCEPTION', E}

              This operation behaves almost like the transfer/3 operation. The difference is that
              the DestinationFile must exist  since  the  SourceFile  will  be  appended  to  the
              DestinationFile.

              Currently,  it  is  not  possible  to  use  this  operation  when the target object
              represents FTP.

       insert(FTS, SourceFile, DestinationFile, Offset) -> Return

              Types:

                 FTS = SourceFile = DestinationFile = #objref
                 Offset = long()
                 Return = ok | {'EXCEPTION', E}

              This operation behaves almost like the append/3 operation. The difference  is  that
              the  SourceFile  will  be  inserted  into the DestinationFile Offset bytes from the
              start of the file.

              Currently, it is not  possible  to  use  this  operation  when  the  target  object
              represents FTP.

       logout(FTS) -> ok

              Types:

                 FTS = #objref

              This  operation  terminates the target object and closes the connection to the file
              system it represents.
