       lfc_registerfiles  -  register  list  of files with their corresponding
       replica entry


       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include "lfc_api.h"

       int lfc_registerfiles (int  nbfiles,  struct  lfc_filereg  *files,  int
       *nbstatuses, int **statuses)


       lfc_registerfiles  registers  a  list of files with their corresponding
       replica entry.  If the lfn is already registered, the guid is  optional
       and  only  the  replica  is  added  (after  checking  that filesize and
       possibly checksum match).  If the lfn is not registered yet,  the  guid
       is mandatory for the LFC.  The lfn and the replica get registered.

              specifies the number of files in the array files.

       files  is  a  pointer to an array of lfc_filereg structures provided by
              the application.

       struct lfc_filereg {
            char      *lfn;
            char      *guid;
            mode_t         mode;
            u_signed64     size;
            char      *csumtype;
            char      *csumvalue;
            char      *server;
            char      *sfn;

              will be set to the number of replies in the array of statuses.

              will be set to the address  of  an  array  of  integer  statuses
              allocated  by the API. The client application is responsible for
              freeing the array when not needed anymore.  Individual  statuses
              are 0 if the operation was successful or set to the serrno value
              in case of error.


       This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful  or  -1  if  the
       operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
