lfc-ls(1) list LFC name server directory/file entries


lfc-ls [-cdhiLlRTu] [--class] [--comment] [--deleted] [--display_side] [--ds] [--si] path...


lfc-ls lists LFC name server directory/file entries. If path is a directory, lfc-ls list the entries in the directory; they are sorted alphabetically.
specifies the LFC pathname. If path does not start with /, it is prefixed by the content of the LFC_HOME environment variable.


use time of last metadata modification instead of last file modification.
if path is a directory, list the directory entry itself, not the files in that directory.
with -l, print sizes in human readable format, using few digits and a suffix k, M, G, T or P to indicate kB, MB, GB, TB or PB respectively.
print the file uniqueid in front of each entry.
for symbolic links, print target attributes instead of link attributes.
long listing (see below).
list the contents of directories recursively.
list file segments migrated to tape.
use last access time instead of last modification.
print the file class in front of each entry.
print the comment associated with the entry after the pathname.
print also the logically deleted files.
--display_side or --ds
print the vid followed by a slash followed by the media side number. This option is valid only if -T is specified and is useful for multi-sided media like DVD.
use powers of 1000 not 1024 for sizes.

The long list gives the file mode, the number of entries in the directory, the owner in alphabetic form or as a valid numeric ID, the group in alphabetic form or as a valid numerci ID, the file size, the last modification date and the file name.

The mode is printed as 10 characters, the first one is d for a directory, D for a logically deleted file, l for a symbolic link, m for a migrated file and - for a regular file. The next 9 characters are three triplets: the first triplet gives read, write and execute/search permission for the owner, the second triplet for the group and the last one for the others.

the file is readable
the file is writable
the file is executable or the directory is searchable
permission is not granted
set-user-ID or set-group-ID bit is on and corresponding execute bit is on
set-user-ID or set-group-ID bit is on but corresponding execute bit is off
sticky bit is on

The file segments list gives the file segment status, the copy number, the file segment number, the tape visual identifier, the file sequence number on tape, the blockid, the segment size, the compression factor and the file name. The segment status can be either - for an active segment or D for a logically deleted segment.


This program returns 0 if the operation was successful or >0 if the operation failed.
