ne_buffer (3)

Name

ne_buffer - string buffer handling

Synopsis

#include <ne_string.h>

typedef struct {
char *data;
size_t used;
size_t length;
} ne_buffer;

Description

NE_BUFFER(3)                  neon API reference                  NE_BUFFER(3)



NAME
       ne_buffer - string buffer handling

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ne_string.h>

       typedef struct {
           char *data;
           size_t used;
           size_t length;
       } ne_buffer;

DESCRIPTION
       The ne_buffer type represents an expandable memory buffer for holding
       NUL-terminated strings. The data field points to the beginnning of the
       string, the length of which is given by the used field. The current
       size of memory allocated is given by the length field. It is not
       recommended that the fields of a buffer are manipulated directly. The
       data pointer may change when the buffer is modified.

       A buffer is created using ne_buffer_create or ne_buffer_ncreate, and
       destroyed using ne_buffer_destroy or ne_buffer_finish. The functions
       ne_buffer_append, ne_buffer_zappend and ne_buffer_concat are used to
       append data to a buffer.

       If the string referenced by the data pointer is modified directly
       (rather than using one of the functions listed above),
       ne_buffer_altered must be called.
