NAME

megaco_flex_scanner - Interface module to the flex scanner linked in driver.

CONTENTS

Description
Exports

DESCRIPTION

This module contains the public interface to the flex scanner linked in driver. The flex scanner performs the scanning phase of text message decoding.

The flex scanner is written using a tool called flex. In order to be able to compile the flex scanner driver, this tool has to be available.

By default the flex scanner reports line-number of an error. But it can be built without line-number reporting. Instead token number is used. This will speed up the scanning some 5-10%. Use --disable-megaco-flex-scanner-lineno when configuring the application.

The scanner will, by default, be built as a reentrant scanner if the flex utility supports this (it depends on the version of flex). It is possible to explicitly disable this even when flex support this. Use --disable-megaco-reentrant-flex-scanner when configuring the application.

DATA TYPES

megaco_ports() = term() megaco_version() = integer() >= 1

EXPORTS

start() -> {ok, PortOrPorts} | {error, Reason}

Types:

PortOrPorts = megaco_ports()
Reason = term()

This function is used to start the flex scanner. It locates the library and loads the linked in driver.

On a single core system or if it’s a non-reentrant scanner, a single port is created. On a multi-core system with a reentrant scanner, several ports will be created (one for each scheduler).

Note that the process that calls this function must be permanent. If it dies, the port(s) will exit and the driver unload.

stop(PortOrPorts) -> stopped

Types:

PortOrPorts = megaco_ports()

This function is used to stop the flex scanner. It also unloads the driver.

is_reentrant_enabled() -> Boolean

Types:

Boolean = boolean()

Is the flex scanner reentrant or not.

is_scanner_port(Port, PortOrPorts) -> Boolean

Types:

Port = port()
PortOrPorts = megaco_ports()
Boolean = boolean()

Checks if a port is a flex scanner port or not (useful when if a port exits).

scan(Binary, PortOrPorts) -> {ok, Tokens, Version, LatestLine} | {error, Reason, LatestLine}

Types:

Binary = binary()
PortOrPorts = megaco_ports()
Tokens = list()
Version = megaco_version()
LatestLine = integer()
Reason = term()

Scans a megaco message and generates a token list to be passed on the parser.
