NAME

       libssh2_sftp_open - open filehandle for file on SFTP.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>
       #include <libssh2_sftp.h>

       LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE *
       libssh2_sftp_open_ex(LIBSSH2_SFTP *sftp, const char *filename,
                            unsigned int filename_len, unsigned long flags,
                            long mode, int open_type);

DESCRIPTION

       sftp - SFTP instance as returned by libssh2_sftp_init(3)

       filename - Remote file/directory resource to open

       filename_len - Length of filename

       flags - Any reasonable combination of the LIBSSH2_FXF_* constants:

              LIBSSH2_FXF_READ
                     Open the file for reading.

              LIBSSH2_FXF_WRITE
                     Open the file for writing.  If both this and LIBSSH2_FXF_READ are specified,
                     the file is opened for both reading and writing.

              LIBSSH2_FXF_APPEND
                     Force all writes to append data at the end of the file.

              LIBSSH2_FXF_CREAT,
                     If this flag is specified, then a new file will be created if one  does  not
                     already  exist  (if  LIBSSH2_FXF_TRUNC  is  specified,  the new file will be
                     truncated to zero length if it previously exists)

              LIBSSH2_FXF_TRUNC
                     Forces an existing file with the same name to be truncated  to  zero  length
                     when creating a file by specifying LIBSSH2_FXF_CREAT. LIBSSH2_FXF_CREAT MUST
                     also be specified if this flag is used.

              LIBSSH2_FXF_EXCL
                     Causes  the  request  to  fail   if   the   named   file   already   exists.
                     LIBSSH2_FXF_CREAT MUST also be specified if this flag is used.

       mode  -  POSIX  file  permissions  to  assign  if the file is being newly created. See the
       LIBSSH2_SFTP_S_* convenience defines in <libssh2_sftp.h>

       open_type - Either of LIBSSH2_SFTP_OPENFILE (to open a file) or  LIBSSH2_SFTP_OPENDIR  (to
       open a directory).

RETURN VALUE

       A pointer to the newly created LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE instance or NULL on failure.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_TIMEOUT -

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL  -  An  invalid  SFTP  protocol  response  was received on the
       socket, or an SFTP operation caused an errorcode to be returned by the server.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN - Marked for non-blocking I/O but the call would block.
