int rfio_access (const char *path, int amode);
DESCRIPTIONrfio_access checks the existence or the accessibility of the file/directory path according to the bit pattern in amode using the real user ID.
- specifies the logical pathname relative to the current directory or the full pathname.
the bit pattern is built by an OR of the constants defined in
under Unix or to be explicitly defined under Windows/NT:
- test for read permission
- test for write permission
- test for search/execute permission
- test for existence of the directory/file.
RETURN VALUEThis routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
- The named file/directory does not exist.
- Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix or specified access to the file itself is denied.
- path is a NULL pointer.
- A component of path prefix is not a directory.
- amode is invalid.
- The length of path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of a path component exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.
- Host unknown.
- Service unknown.
- Communication error.
