libssh2_sftp_stat_ex(3)		libssh2 manual	       libssh2_sftp_stat_ex(3)

       libssh2_sftp_stat_ex - get status about an SFTP file

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

       int libssh2_sftp_stat_ex(LIBSSH2_SFTP *sftp, const char *path,
				unsigned int path_len, int stat_type,

       sftp - SFTP instance as returned by libssh2_sftp_init(3)

       path - Remote filesystem object to stat/lstat/setstat.

       path_len	 -  Length  of	the  name  of  the remote filesystem object to

       stat_type - One of the three constants  specifying  the	type  of  stat
       operation to perform:

       LIBSSH2_SFTP_STAT: performs stat(2) operation
       LIBSSH2_SFTP_LSTAT: performs lstat(2) operation
       LIBSSH2_SFTP_SETSTAT: performs operation to set stat info on file

       attrs  -	 Pointer  to  a	 LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES structure to set file
       metadata from or into depending on the value of stat_type.

       Get or Set statbuf type data on a remote filesystem object.  When  get‐
       ting statbuf data, libssh2_sftp_stat(3) will follow all symlinks, while
       libssh2_sftp_lstat(3) will return data about  the  object  encountered,
       even if that object happens to be a symlink.

       The LIBSSH2_SFTP_ATTRIBUTES struct looks like this:

	   /* If flags & ATTR_* bit is set, then the value in this struct will be
	    * meaningful Otherwise it should be ignored
	   unsigned long flags;

	   libssh2_uint64_t filesize;
	   unsigned long uid;
	   unsigned long gid;
	   unsigned long permissions;
	   unsigned long atime;
	   unsigned long mtime;

       Returns	0  on  success	or  negative  on  failure.   It	 returns  LIB‐
       SSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN  when	it   would   otherwise	 block.	  While	  LIB‐
       SSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN  is  a negative number, it isn't really a failure per

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.


       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.
