NAME

       dpns_readdirxp - read DPNS directory opened by dpns_opendir in the name server

SYNOPSIS

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

       struct dpns_direnrep *dpns_readdirxp (dpns_DIR *dirp, char *pattern, char *se)

DESCRIPTION

       dpns_readdirxp  reads  the  DPNS  directory opened by dpns_opendir in the name server.  It
       does restricted pattern matching on  basename.   This  routine  returns  a  pointer  to  a
       structure  containing  the  current  directory entry (basename, guid and filesize) and the
       replica information.

       struct dpns_rep_info {
            u_signed64     fileid;
            char      status;
            char      *host;
            char      *sfn;
       };

       struct dpns_direnrep {
            u_signed64     fileid;
            char      guid[CA_MAXGUIDLEN+1];
            mode_t         filemode;
            u_signed64     filesize;
            int       nbreplicas;
            struct dpns_rep_info *rep;    /* array of replica info structures */
            unsigned short d_reclen; /* length of this entry */
            char      d_name[1];     /* basename in variable length */
       };

       dpns_readdirxp caches a variable number of such entries, depending on the  filename  size,
       to minimize the number of requests to the name server.

       dirp   specifies the pointer value returned by dpns_opendir.

       pattern
              allows  to  restrict  the listing to entries having the basename starting with this
              pattern.

       se     allows to restrict the replica entries to a given SE.

RETURN VALUE

       This routine returns a pointer to a structure containing the current  directory  entry  if
       the  operation  was  successful  or NULL if the end of the directory was reached or if the
       operation failed. When the end of the directory is encountered, serrno is not changed.  If
       the operation failed, serrno is set appropriately.

       As dpns_readdirxp returns a null pointer both at the end of the directory and on error, an
       application wishing to check for error situations  should  set  serrno  to  0,  then  call
       dpns_readdirxp, then check serrno and if it is non-zero, assume an error has occurred.

ERRORS

       EBADF        File descriptor in DIR structure is invalid.

       ENOMEM       Memory could not be allocated for unmarshalling the reply.

       EFAULT       dirp is a NULL pointer.

       EINVAL       The  length  of  pattern  exceeds  CA_MAXNAMELEN  or the length of se exceeds
                    CA_MAXHOSTNAMELEN.

       SECOMERR     Communication error.

       ENSNACT      Name server is not running or is being shutdown.
