const char *newfilepath);

Description

tt_file_move(3)               ToolTalk Functions               tt_file_move(3)



NAME
       tt_file_move - move objects from one file to another

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_status tt_file_move(const char *oldfilepath,
                              const char *newfilepath);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tt_file_move()  function  destroys  all  objects that exist on the
       files and directories rooted at newfilepath,  then  moves  all  objects
       that exist on oldfilepath to newfilepath.

       If  oldfilepath  and  newfilepath  reside  in  the  same  file  system,
       tt_file_move() replaces oldfilepath with newfilepath in the path  asso-
       ciated  with every object in that file system; that is, all the objects
       in the directory tree rooted at  oldfilepath  are  overlaid  onto  new-
       filepath.   In  this mode, the behavior of tt_file_move() is similar to
       rename(2).

       If oldfilepath and newfilepath reside in different file  systems,  nei-
       ther can be a directory.

       The  oldfilepath  argument  is  the name of the file or directory whose
       objects are to be moved.  The newfilepath argument is the name  of  the
       file or directory to which the objects are to be moved.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful  completion,  the  tt_file_move() function returns the
       status of the operation as one of the following Tt_status values:

          TT_OK   The operation completed successfully.

          TT_ERR_ACCESS
                  The user does not have the necessary access  to  the  object
                  and/or the process.

          TT_ERR_DBAVAIL
                  The  ToolTalk service could not access the ToolTalk database
                  needed for this operation.

          TT_ERR_DBEXIST
                  The ToolTalk service could not access the specified ToolTalk
                  database in the expected place.

          TT_ERR_FILE
                  The specified file does not exist or it is inaccessible.

          TT_ERR_NOMP
                  The  ttsession(1)  process  is  not running and the ToolTalk
                  service cannot restart it.

          TT_ERR_PATH
                  The specified pathname included an  unsearchable  directory,
                  or oldfilepath and newfilepath reside in different file sys-
                  tems, and either is a directory.

          TT_ERR_POINTER
                  The pointer passed does not point to an object of  the  cor-
                  rect type for this operation.
