int libssh2_sftp_close_handle(LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE *handle);

handle - SFTP File Handle as returned by libssh2_sftp_open_ex(3) or libssh2_sftp_opendir(3) (which is a macro).

Close an active LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE. Because files and directories share the same underlying storage mechanism these methods may be used interchangeably. libssh2_sftp_close(3) and libssh2_sftp_closedir(3) are macros for libssh2_sftp_close_handle(3).


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.


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.
