NAME

prop_data, prop_data_create_data, prop_data_create_data_nocopy, prop_data_copy, prop_data_size, prop_data_data, prop_data_data_nocopy, prop_data_equals, prop_data_equals_data -- opaque data value property object

LIBRARY

Property Container Object Library (libprop, -lprop)

SYNOPSIS

#include <libprop/proplib.h> prop_data_t prop_data_create_data(const void *blob, size_t len); prop_data_t prop_data_create_data_nocopy(const void *blob, size_t len); prop_data_t prop_data_copy(prop_data_t data); size_t prop_data_size(prop_data_t data); void * prop_data_data(prop_data_t data); const void * prop_data_data_nocopy(prop_data_t data); bool prop_data_equals(prop_data_t dat1, prop_data_t dat2); bool prop_data_equals_data(prop_data_t data, const void *blob, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION

The prop_data family of functions operate on an opaque data value prop- erty object type. prop_data_create_data(const void *blob, size_t len) Create a data object that contains a copy of blob with size len. Returns NULL on failure. prop_data_create_data_nocopy(const void *blob, size_t len) Create a data object that contains a reference to blob with size len. Returns NULL on failure. prop_data_copy(prop_data_t data) Copy a data object. If the data object being copied is an exter- nal data reference, then the copy also references the same exter- nal data. Returns NULL on failure. prop_data_size(prop_data_t data) Returns the size of the data object. If the supplied object isn't a data object, zero is returned. prop_data_data(prop_data_t data) Returns a copy of the data object's contents. The caller is responsible for freeing the returned buffer. If the supplied object isn't a data object or if the data container is empty, NULL is returned. In user space, the buffer is allocated using malloc(3). In the kernel, the buffer is allocated using kmalloc(9) using the malloc type M_TEMP. prop_data_data_nocopy(prop_data_t data) Returns an immutable reference to the contents of the data object. If the supplied object isn't a data object, NULL is returned. prop_data_equals(prop_data_t dat1, prop_data_t dat2) Returns true if the two data objects are equivalent. If at least one of the supplied objects isn't a data object, false is returned. prop_data_equals_data(prop_data_t data, const void *blob, size_t len) Returns true if the data object's value is equivalent to blob with size len. If the supplied object isn't a data object, false is returned.
