Net::SSH2::SFTP(3pm)					User Contributed Perl Documentation				      Net::SSH2::SFTP(3pm)

Net::SSH2::SFTP - SSH 2 Secure FTP object DESCRIPTION
An SFTP object is created by the Net::SSH2 "sftp" method. error Returns the last SFTP error (one of the LIBSSH2_FX_* constants). Use this when Net::SSH2::error returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL. In list context, returns (code, error name). open ( file [, flags [, mode ]]] ) Open or create a file on the remote host. The flags are the standard O_RDONLY, O_WRONLY, O_RDWR, O_APPEND, O_CREAT, O_TRUNC, and O_EXCL, which may be combined as usual. Flags default to O_RDONLY and mode to 0666 (create only). Returns a Net::SSH2::File object on success. opendir ( dir ) Open a directory on the remote host; returns a Net::SSH2::Dir object on success. unlink ( file ) Delete the remote file. rename ( old, new [, flags ] ) Rename old to new. Flags are taken from LIBSSH2_SFTP_RENAME_*, and may be combined; the default is to use all (overwrite, atomic, native). mkdir ( path [, mode ] ) Create directory; mode defaults to 0777. rmdir ( path ) Remove directory. stat ( path [, follow ] ) Get file attributes for the given path. If follow is set (default), will follow symbolic links. On success, returns a hash containing the following: mode size uid gid atime mtime setstat ( path, key, value... ) Set file attributes for given path; keys are the same as those returned by stat; note that it's not necessary to pass them all. symlink ( path, target [, type ] ) Create a symbolic link to a given target. readlink ( path ) Return the target of the given link, undef on failure. realpath ( path ) Resolve a filename's path; returns the resolved path, or undef on error.
