NAME

       libssh2_sftp_rename_ex - rename an SFTP file

SYNOPSIS

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

       int  libssh2_sftp_rename_ex(LIBSSH2_SFTP  *sftp, const char *source_filename, unsigned int
       source_filename_len, const  char  *dest_filename,  unsigned  int  dest_filename_len,  long
       flags);

       int  libssh2_sftp_rename_ex(LIBSSH2_SFTP  *sftp,  const  char *source_filename, const char
       *dest_filename);

DESCRIPTION

       sftp - SFTP instance as returned by libssh2_sftp_init(3)

       sourcefile - Path and name of the existing filesystem entry

       sourcefile_len - Length of the path and name of the existing filesystem entry

       destfile - Path and name of the target filesystem entry

       destfile_len - Length of the path and name of the target filesystem entry

       flags - Bitmask flags made up of LIBSSH2_SFTP_RENAME_* constants.

       Rename a filesystem object on  the  remote  filesystem.  The  semantics  of  this  command
       typically  include  the  ability  to  move  a  filesystem  object  between  folders and/or
       filesystem mounts. If the LIBSSH2_SFTP_RENAME_OVERWRITE flag is not set and  the  destfile
       entry  already  exists,  the  operation  will  fail. Use of the other two flags indicate a
       preference (but not a requirement)  for  the  remote  end  to  perform  an  atomic  rename
       operation and/or using native system calls when possible.

RETURN VALUE

       Return 0 on success or negative on failure.  It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would
       otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is  a  negative  number,  it  isn't  really  a
       failure per se.

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.
