NAME

       lfc2 - New python interface to the LFC client API
       lfc2thr - Thread enabled version of Python interface to the LFC

SYNOPSIS

       import lfc2 as lfc

       import lfc2thr as lfc
       lfc.init()

DESCRIPTION

       The  lfc  module  permits you to access the LFC client interface from python programs. The
       lfc module is a swig wrapping of the standard C interface.  For detailed  descriptions  of
       each function see the individual man page of each function.

       The lfcthr module is a version of the lfc module supporting multi-threaded Python clients.
       Its usage is similar to the usage of the lfc module except the  obligatory  initialisation
       call lfcthr.init() in the main program before threads are started.

STRUCTURES

       Sometimes  you  need  to  specify  a  structure as an input argument (eg.  struct lfc_acl,
       struct lfc_list, etc.).  For that purpose, the  module  includes  structure  constructors,
       named exactly as the structure.

       Thus, to create struct lfc_acl or struct lfc_list, you have to do the following:

           lfcacl = lfc.lfc_acl()
           lfclist = lfc.lfc_list()

       If you want to see how to use it in a real case, please have a look at examples.

ERRORS

       As  you  can  see, no error code is returned. When an error occurs, an exception is raised
       with a description of the error.
