Using File Commands
AFP provides these commands for working on files:
The AFP client uses the
FPSetFileParms command to modify a specified file’s parameters, the
FPCreateFile command to create a file, and the
FPCopyFile command to copy a file that exists on a volume managed by a server to any other volume managed by that server. To obtain a specified file’s parameters, the AFP client uses the
FPGetFileDirParms command, discussed in the next section.
FPCreateID command creates a unique File ID for an existing file, and
FPDeleteID removes a File ID.
FPResolveID command uses a File ID to retrieve information about a file.
FPExchangeFiles command preserves existing file IDs when an application performs a Save or a Save As operation.
