Open a name for a server connection
#include <sys/iofunc.h> #include <sys/dispatch.h> int name_open( const char * name, int flags );
- The name that you want to open for a server connection.
- Flags that affect the function's behavior:
- NAME_FLAG_ATTACH_GLOBAL — search for the name globally instead of locally.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The name_open() function opens name for a server connection. No ordering is guaranteed when accessing resources on other nodes.
- Search permission is denied on a component of the name.
- While attempting to open the named file, either the file itself or a component of the path prefix was found to be corrupted. A system failure — from which no automatic recovery is possible — occurred while the file was being written to, or while the directory was being updated. You'll need to invoke appropriate systems-administration procedures to correct this situation before proceeding.
- The connection specified by name has already been opened and additional connections aren't permitted.
- The name_open() operation was interrupted by a signal.
- The named path is a directory.
- Too many levels of symbolic links or prefixes.
- Too many file descriptors are currently in use by this process.
- The length of the name string exceeds PATH_MAX, or a pathname component is longer than NAME_MAX.
- Too many files are currently open in the system.
- The connection specified by name doesn't exist.
- A component of the name prefix isn't a directory.
