       dpns_delete - logically delete a DPNS file entry in the name server


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

       int dpns_delete (const char *path)


       dpns_delete  logically  deletes  a  DPNS  file  entry in the name server.  The file can be
       recovered by using dpns_undelete as long as a the reclaim utility has not been run on  the
       corresponding tape volume.

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


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


       EPERM        path is a directory.

       ENOENT       The named file does not exist or is a null pathname.

       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.

       EFAULT       path is a NULL pointer.

       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.

       SENOSHOST    Host unknown.

       SENOSSERV    Service unknown.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
