A very simple overview is that you call vstr_init() at the start of your program and vstr_exit() at the end.
You can make new Vstr strings by calling vstr_make_base(), and free them by calling vstr_free_base(). There are also a vstr_dup_* set of functions to make a new Vstr string with data in them.
You can then add/delete data from this string, using the provided functions, if you need to use all or part of the string with a "C string" interface then you can call vstr_export_cstr_ptr() or vstr_export_cstr_malloc().

 
Function: vstr_init()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Nothing
 
Type [1]: void
 
Explanation:
 

This function needs to be called before any of the other functions are called.
Note:
 

The function can be called multiple times, without any problems.
 
Function: vstr_exit()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Nothing
 
Type [1]: void
 
Explanation:
 

This function can be called before exit, after all vstr objects have been freed, to cleanup data allocated internally in the Vstr library.
Note:
 

The function isn't needed but helps make sure there are no memory leaks, when used with a memory checker (or with the internal memory checker in the debug build).

 
Function: vstr_export_cstr_ptr()
 
Returns: A pointer to an array of characters, terminated by NIL
 
Type: const char *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length from position in the Vstr
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a pointer to an array of characters of length (Parameter[3] + 1), the last byte will be a 0 to terminate the "C string".
 

Multiple adjacent calls will return the same pointer.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return NULL if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
Note:
 

If you alter the Vstr in anyway then the returned pointer may point to free()'d memory. To get a reference to this data use vstr_export_cstr_ref() instead.
 

This data needs to be cached in the Vstr string, and so can only work if the Vstr string has the ability to cache data (see VSTR_CNTL_BASE_GET_FLAG_HAVE_CACHE). If you want to make sure that the cached data is gone from the Vstr string, cache then you can call vstr_cache_cb_free() on the cookie from "/vstr__/cstr".
 

Any _NON data in the Vstr will be uninitialized data in the "C string".
 

If there are any 0 bytes in the Vstr they will make the string look shorter than it really is to normal C style string functions.
 
Function: vstr_export_cstr_malloc()
 
Returns: A malloc'd pointer to an array of characters, terminated by NIL
 
Type: char *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length from position in the Vstr
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a malloc'd pointer to an array of characters of length (Parameter[3] + 1), the last byte will be a 0 to terminate the "C string". You will need to pass the pointer to free(), when you are done with it.
 

Each call will return a different pointer.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return NULL if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
Note:
 

Any _NON data in the Vstr will be uninitialized data in the "C string".
 

If there are any 0 bytes in the Vstr they will make the string look shorter than it really is to normal C/POSIX string functions.
 
Function: vstr_export_cstr_buf()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length from position in the Vstr
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Data array to export to
 
Type [4]: void *
 
Parameter [5]: Length of data (Parameter[4])
 
Type [5]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a copy of the data in the Vstr string to a data array, the maximum amount of data stored in the array will be of length (Parameter[3] + 1), the last byte will be a 0 to terminate the "C string". However the data before the terminator of the "C string" is limited to (Parameter[5] - 1).
Note:
 

Data from nodes of type NON are exported by not doing anything to the underlying data array (Ie. It'll have whatever data was in there to start with).
 

If there are any 0 bytes in the Vstr they will make the "C string" look shorter than it really is to normal C/POSIX string functions.
 
Function: vstr_export_cstr_ref()
 
Returns: Vstr memory reference
 
Type: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length from position in the Vstr
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Offset of Vstr memory reference (Return)
 
Type [4]: size_t *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to return a pointer to a Vstr memory reference of at least length (Parameter[3] + 1), the last byte will be a 0 to terminate the "C string" stored in (Vstr_ref *)->ptr. The offset (Parameter[4]) should be used to find the beginning of the block of memory to use.
 

When you are finished with the reference you need to use vstr_ref_del() or the memory will stay allocated forever.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return NULL if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
Note:
 

If you want to make sure that the cached data is gone from the Vstr string, cache then you can call vstr_cache_cb_free() on the cookie from "/vstr__/cstr".
 

Any _NON data in the Vstr will be uninitialized data in the "C string".
 

If there are any 0 bytes in the Vstr they will make the string look shorter than it really is to normal C/POSIX string functions.
 
Function: vstr_export_iovec_ptr_all()
 
Returns: Size of bytes in the Vstr string
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Returns the start of the iovec array
 
Type [2]: struct iovec **
 
Parameter [2]: Returns the number of iovec structures in the array
 
Type [2]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a pointer to an array of iovec structures this can then be passed directly to writev() etc. or just used to quickly access the data in the Vstr string.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
Note:
 

Nodes of type NON are represented by a iov_base set to NULL.
 

Altering the iov_base/iov_len members will probably do very bad things, if you need to do this use the vstr_export_iovec_cpy_ptr()
 

Altering the data in the iovec structure isn't a good idea as it isn't easy for the programer to know if the data is shared/read-only. If you need to do this you should use either the vstr_sub_* functions instead or vstr_export_iovec_cpy_buf() (the later does a copy). However if you do alter the data then you'll need to do vstr_cache_cb_sub().
 

Either of the pointers for the iovec array (Parameter[2]) or the number of iovecs (Parameter[3]) can be the NULL pointer, in which case nothing will be written to those pointers.
 
Function: vstr_export_iovec_cpy_buf()
 
Returns: Size of bytes exported from the Vstr string
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Pointer to array of initialized iovec structures
 
Type [4]: struct iovec *
 
Parameter [5]: Number of iovec structures (Parameter[4])
 
Type [5]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [6]: Returns the number of iovec structures used in the array
 
Type [6]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a copy of the data in the Vstr string to an array of iovec structures this can then be passed directly to writev() (or even a readv() although that wouldn't often be useful) etc.
 

Think of this function as doing a readv() from a Vstr string.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
Note:
 

Data from nodes of type NON are exported by not doing anything to the underlying iov_base data arrays (Ie. It'll have whatever data was in there to start with).
 

The length returned may be shorter than that given as Parameter[3], as it's the number of bytes copied into the iov_base arrays in the iovec structures.
 
Function: vstr_export_iovec_cpy_ptr()
 
Returns: Size of bytes exported from the Vstr string
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Pointer to array of iovec structures
 
Type [4]: struct iovec *
 
Parameter [5]: Number of iovec structures (Parameter[4])
 
Type [5]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [6]: Returns the number of iovec structures used in the array
 
Type [6]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a set of pointer/length pairs to the data specified in the Vstr string, this can then be passed directly to writev() etc.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
Note:
 

Nodes of type NON are represented by a iov_base set to NULL.
 

Altering the data in the iovec structure isn't a good idea as it isn't easy for the programer to know if the data is shared/read-only. If you need to do this you should use either the vstr_sub_* functions instead or vstr_export_iovec_cpy_buf() (the later does a copy).
 
Function: vstr_export_buf()
 
Returns: Size of bytes exported from the Vstr string
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Data array to export to
 
Type [4]: void *
 
Parameter [5]: Length of data (Parameter[4])
 
Type [5]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to export a copy of the data in the Vstr string to a data array.
 

Think of this function as doing a read() from a Vstr string. However the data will be limited to the minimum of the length of the vstr (Parameter[3]) and the length of the data (Parameter[5]).
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
Note:
 

Data from nodes of type NON are exported by not doing anything to the underlying data array (Ie. It'll have whatever data was in there to start with).
 
Function: vstr_export_chr()
 
Returns: Character exported from the Vstr string
 
Type: char
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to return a character at a certain position in a Vstr string.
Note:
 

It is impossible to distinguish between an error, data from a NON node and real data that is equal to the value 0.
 
Function: vstr_export_ref()
 
Returns: Vstr memory reference
 
Type: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length from position in the Vstr
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Offset of Vstr memory reference (Return)
 
Type [4]: size_t *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to return a pointer to a Vstr memory reference of at least length (Parameter[3]). The offset (Parameter[4]) should be used to find the beginning of the block of memory to use.
 

When you are finished with the reference you need to use vstr_ref_del() or the memory will stay allocated forever.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return NULL if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
Note:
 

Any _NON data in the Vstr will be uninitialized data in the memory pointed to by the memory reference.

 
Function: vstr_ref_add()
 
Returns: Vstr memory reference (Parameter[1])
 
Type: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr memory reference
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will add a reference count to the Vstr_ref (Parameter[1]).
 
Function: vstr_ref_del()
Returns:.br Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr memory reference
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will delete a reference count from the Vstr_ref (Parameter[1]), when the reference count reaches zero then the cleanup function will be called.
 
Function: vstr_ref_cb_free_nothing()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr memory reference
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This function does nothing.
 
Function: vstr_ref_cb_free_ref()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr memory reference
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This will call free() on the Vstr_ref (Parameter[1]).
 
Function: vstr_ref_cb_free_ptr()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr memory reference
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This will call free() on the data in the Vstr_ref (Parameter[1])->ptr (unless the passed reference is the NULL pointer, then it does nothing).
 
Function: vstr_ref_cb_free_ptr_ref()

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so, although if it does fail the Vstr string won't have changed (Ie. the function is atomic).
Note:
 

If the data in the array needs to be free'd the programer will have to decide when it is no longer being used by the Vstr string and free it. It is often easier to create a memory reference and use vstr_add_ref() instead.

Type [3]: const char *
 
Parameter [4]: Standard argument object from va_start()
 
Type [4]: va_list
 
Explanation:
 

This function works like calling vsprintf() directly into a Vstr string, however this is a portable implementation which is feature complete with glibc-2.2.x sprintf(); implements custom specifiers, if you use the vstr_fmt_add() function, and doesn't require a double copy.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so, although if it does fail the Vstr string won't have changed (Ie. the function is atomic).
Note:
 

Depending on how the library was compiled double support is implemented by either calling the underlying host implementation of sprintf(), by internal code or simply by assuming all double's are zero. When using the host implementation system bugs of inaccuracy will show through, however the feature set remains the same (Ie. the ' flag works the same).
 

Because specifiers can be overridden using vstr_fmt_add() if you are adding data to a Vstr string that you didn't create you should use either vstr_add_vsysfmt() or vstr_swap_conf().

Type [4]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [5]: Returns the start of the iovec array
 
Type [5]: struct iovec **
 
Parameter [6]: Returns the number of iovec structures in the array
 
Type [6]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to add a copy of data directly into the Vstr string, the amount of data available will be between the minimum (Parameter[4]) and maximum ((Parameter[5]) + 1) number of iovecs multiplied by the length of data in _BUF type nodes. The obvious use for the data is to call readv() on it.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so, although if it does fail the Vstr string won't have changed (Ie. the function is atomic).
Note:
 

You shouldn't call any other vstr functions between vstr_add_iovec_buf_beg() and vstr_add_iovec_buf_end(), unless you know that they are operating on a different Vstr string which is using a different Vstr configuration.
 

The reason there is a +1 on the maximum value is that data may be appended to a _BUF node just before the start of where the data is to go, this is almost guaranteed to happen when adding to the end of a Vstr string and saves a lot of wasted space.
 

It is currently believed that, on Linux, doing disk IO in amounts greater than 8k gives little real performance improvement. This can be converted into iovec numbers by using a formula like...

min = (8k / buf_sz) + 2;
max = min + (min / 2);

...where the +2 is due to both the extra space at the end of the current last
node, and rounding errors due to the division. The max being slightly bigger is an attempt to make the constant overhead of the call slightly less, and may not be useful. It is very possible that some kind of dynamic scaling of the values would result in the best performance, however the solution to that doesn't fit in the margin :).
 
Function: vstr_add_iovec_buf_end()
 
Returns: Nothing

Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Number of bytes added to the iovec array
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used after calling vstr_add_iovec_buf_beg() and you've then filled in a bunch of data.
Note:
 

Although it's safe to not bother calling this function if you didn't have anything to add to the Vstr string it is often more efficient to call this function with Parameter[3] as 0.
 
Function: vstr_add_netstr_beg()
 
Returns: Position of start of netstr (Parameter[2]) + 1
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Append position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function creates the start of a netstring http://cr.yp.to/proto/netstrings.txt this can be used in conjunction with vstr_add_netstr_end() to easily create netstrings.
 
Function: vstr_add_netstr_end()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Position returned from vstr_add_netstr_beg()
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: End of netstring
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is called after calling vstr_add_netstr_beg(), adding all the data you want to the netstring and then passing the position of the end of that data.
 

Upon success a valid netstring will contain all the data added between the two calls.
Note:
 

It is valid to pass the same values for (Parameter[2]) and (parameter[3]), as that signifies that there is no data in the netstring.
 

It is almost guaranteed that data will need to be removed from the beginning of the netstring due to the length being shorter than the maximum, this is inefficient and could cause problems if you know how big the Vstr string is you can use the vstr_add_netstr2_* functions to solve both problems.
 
Function: vstr_add_netstr2_beg()
 
Returns: Position of start of netstr (Parameter[2]) + 1
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Append position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function creates the start of a netstring2 which is like a netstring http://cr.yp.to/proto/netstrings.txt but can have leading zeros, this can be used in conjunction with vstr_add_netstr2_end() to easily create netstring2s.
 
Function: vstr_add_netstr2_end()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Position returned from vstr_add_netstr2_beg()
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: End of netstring2
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is called after calling vstr_add_netstr2_beg(), adding all the data you want to the netstring2 and then passing the position of the end of that data.
 

Upon success a netstring2 will contain all the data added between the two calls.
Note:
 

It is valid to pass the same values for (Parameter[2]) and (parameter[3]), as that signifies that there is no data in the netstring.
 

No data is ever removed from the beginning of a netstring2, this is incompatible with the netstring spec. but is more efficient and doesn't cause problems if you know how big the Vstr string is and can't have it lose data from the beginning/middle.
 
Function: vstr_del()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to delete data in the Vstr string.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so, although if it does fail the Vstr string won't have changed (Ie. the function is atomic).
Note:
 

Deleted nodes do not get returned to the system, they get put into a pool in the Vstr configuration for reuse on the next call to a vstr_add_*() function.
 

Deleting the entire Vstr string and deleting from the beginning onward are faster operations than a generic delete. They also never require allocating memory and so the return value can be ignored.

Explanation:
 

This function is used to substitute the data in the Vstr string with a copy of the data in the data array.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so, although if it does fail the Vstr string won't have changed (Ie. the function is atomic).
Note:
 

The length of the Vstr string (Parameter[3]) can be larger or smaller than the length of the data (Parameter[5]).
 

Think of this function as doing a vstr_del() and then a vstr_add_buf() (but it's atomic).
 

If the length of the data (Parameter[5]) is less than or equal to the length of the Vstr string (Parameter[3]) and the data in the Vstr string is in a BUF node then the data will just be overwritten (Ie. no allocations will happen).

Type [6]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to compare the data in one Vstr string (Parameter[1]) with data in another Vstr string (Parameter[4]), however for ASCII digits the algorithm tests on the numbers themselves (so "10" is greater than "9" but "01" is greater than "012", as the later are fractions).
 

Think of this function as doing a vstr_export_cstr_ptr() on each Vstr string, and then a call to strverscmp() (although it doesn't allocate anything, _and_ it deals with 0 bytes in the data).
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.

This function will parse a number, in the range INTMAX_MIN to INTMAX_MAX, from the start of a Vstr string.
 

The base that the number is parsed as is passed by specifying a number between 2 and 36 as part of the flags (Parameter[4]).
Note:
 

A base of 0 specifies that the base should be automatically detected, by choosing base 16 if the number starts 0x or 0X, base 2 if the number starts 0b or 0B, base 8 if the number starts with a 0 and defaulting to base 10 otherwise.
 

If the intmax_t type is unavailable on the platform, then this function will act the same as vstr_parse_long().

Parameter [4]: List of VSTR_TYPE_FMT_* types for format specifier (Parameter[2])
 
Type [4]: ...
 
Explanation:
 

This function allows you to register arbitrary format specifiers for printing from vstr_add_fmt(). Note that these trigger off the user escape character, which may or may not be the same as the "system" escape character of '%'.
 

The call back you register should return 0 (zero) if memory couldn't be allocated and 1 (one) otherwise.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 

If the user escape character is '%', then you can override system specifiers by using a specifier name (Parameter[2]) of "i" etc. This isn't recommended, but is done so that you can have specifier names like "igloo" and it not be taken as a system specifier, however if you then did "%igoo" that would be interpreted as a "%i" (int) specification followed by the string "goo".
 

You can register multiple names with one callback, so you can register say "{Vstr}" and "{Vstr:%p%zu%zu%u}" ... the latter, with a user escape != '%', will do the right thing with current printf warning checks in gcc. We can all hope that the former will be as usable eventually.
 

If you register all your custom formatter names starting with one of "{", "[", "<" or "(" and ending with one of "}", "]", ">" or ")" and no other instances of those characters ... then matching custom formatters will be much faster.

Explanation:
 

This function is a helper function to return the directory of a path, excluding the basename. Unlike other implementations of this function nothing is allocated and nothing is altered in the original string.
Note:
 

This function, with vstr_sc_basename(), always returns values that can be combined to generate the original path. This means that this function will return an empty length for a relative filename in the current directory.

Explanation:
 

This function is a helper function for any custom format specifiers you write, it takes care of truncation of length due to precision (on strings only) and printing initial output for numbers or strings.
Note:
 

If this function returns FALSE, you should probably just return from the callback with FALSE.

Explanation:
 

This function is a helper function for any custom format specifiers you write, it takes care of doing the standard transforms to your data after it is output as if you were printing a string.
Note:
 

You shouldn't alter the position between calling vstr_sc_fmt_cb_beg() and vstr_sc_fmt_cb_end(), if padding is added in vstr_sc_fmt_cb_end() it is added at position (Parameter[2]) + length (Parameter[4]).
 

If this function returns FALSE, you should probably just return from the callback with FALSE.

This function is used to add a custom specifier function to print an unsigned long number in a base 2 form.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 

The precision, field width, #, + and - attributes all act as they would on hex or octal numbers (Ie. %x or %o). The # flag prints a "0b" in the same way hex prints "0x".
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
 

It is recommended that you use the name "{B.lu}", with the gcc warning compatible alternates using "{B.lu:%lu}" etc. vstr_sc_fmt_add_all() will add this formatter using those names.

Function: vstr_sc_fmt_add_all()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr configuration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is a shortcut to adding a custom formatter for each of the specific custom formatters. The names used are as those given in the notes section of each custom formatter. Also 4 alternate names are given so that the formatter can be used in a gcc warning compatible way. For instance the vstr_add_buf() formatter is "{buf}", however the names "{buf:%s%zu}", "{buf:%*s%zu}", "{buf:%.*s%zu}", "{buf:%*.*s%zu}", "{buf:%d%s%zu}" and "{buf:%d%d%s%zu}" are also added (the later two are slightly less readable, but required for custom formaters whos first argument is a %p.
Note:
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 

If any of the custom formatter adds fails (for example, if the name is already in use) then all the rest of the names of that type will fail, however the other remaining types of formatters will be tried.
 
Function: VSTR_SC_FMT_ADD()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr configuration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Function to add the custom formatter ability
 
Type [2]: int (*)(struct Vstr_conf *, const char *)
 
Parameter [3]: Prefix string
 
Type [3]: const char *
 
Parameter [4]: Static format check string, without the leading % sign
 
Type [4]: const char *
 
Parameter [5]: Postfix string
 
Type [5]: const char *
 
Explanation:
 

This macro function calls the function to add the custom formatting ability (Parameter[2]), with the Vstr configuration (Parameter[1]) and a string composed of the values from prefix, and the postfix. It then calls the function with the prefix, various middle strings with the static format check string, and the postfix. For example the following call...

VSTR_SC_FMT_ADD(NULL, func, "<foo", "p", ">");

...will register the format "<foo>", but also the formats "<foo:%p>",
"<foo:%p>", "<foo:%*p>", "<foo:%.*p>", "<foo:%*.*p>", "<foo:%d%p>" and "<foo:%d%d%p>". This is all that is required to fool static format string checkers, even when you are passing formating information in parameters.
Note:
 

No cleanup is done on failure, so if the second registration fails then the first custom formatter will still be registered on return.

Type [5]: size_t
 
Parameter [6]: Returns error code starting VSTR_TYPE_SC_MMAP_FD_ERR_
 
Type [6]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to add a mmap()d mapping of data from a file descriptor (Parameter[3]) at offset (Parameter[4]) and of size (Parameter[5]) to a Vstr string.
Note:
 

If the size (Parameter[5]) is zero, then then the size of the file is automatically worked out and the size (Parameter[5]) becomes the file size minus the offset (Parameter[4]).

Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string

Type [5]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [6]: Returns error code starting VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FD_ERR_
 
Type [6]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to call vstr_add_iovec_buf_beg(), then readv() with the file descriptor (Parameter[3]) and finally vstr_add_iovec_buf_end() before returning.
 
Function: vstr_sc_read_len_fd()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *

Parameter [4]: Size of data to try to read
 
Type [4]: size_t
 
Parameter [5]: Returns error code starting VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FD_ERR_
 
Type [5]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to call vstr_add_iovec_buf_beg(), then readv() with the file descriptor (Parameter[3]) and finally vstr_add_iovec_buf_end() before returning.
 

However the arguments to the vstr_add_iovec_buf_* calls are limited so that only up to size (Parameter[4]) data will be read.
 

If size (Parameter[4]) is zero then the entire file will try to be read.
Note:
 

As with all calls in the vstr library, this is a non-blocking call. If you need all of the data specified (Parameter[4]) then you'll need to loop.
 
Function: vstr_sc_read_iov_file()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure

Parameter [6]: Maximum amount of nodes to read into
 
Type [6]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [7]: Returns error code starting VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FILE_ERR_
 
Type [7]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to call vstr_add_iovec_buf_beg(), then readv() with the file descriptor got by opening the filename (Parameter[3]) and finally vstr_add_iovec_buf_end() before returning.
 

However the arguments to the vstr_add_iovec_buf_* calls are limited so that only up to size (Parameter[4]) data will be read.
 

However the arguments to the vstr_add_iovec_buf_* calls are limited so that only up to exactly size (Parameter[4]) data will be read. If size (Parameter[5]) is zero then the entire file, minus the offset (Parameter[4]) will try and be read.
Note:
 

If all the data is read() and then close() fails with an error, although the error code will signify this the data will stay inside the Vstr as this seemed the most useful/sane behaviour.
 

read() is called multiple times from this function, so it should return after either all the data has been read from the file into the Vstr or an error has occured.

Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: File descriptor
 
Type [3]: int
 
Parameter [4]: Returns error code starting VSTR_TYPE_SC_WRITE_FD_ERR_
 
Type [4]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to take data from a Vstr string and write it to a file descriptor. Specifically this means that after the call any data written will be removed from the Vstr (Parameter[1]), making write analogous to read which fills in the data.
Note:
 

If the start position is 1, the length is (Parameter[1])->len and caching is available for the Vstr string the data will be exported as though vstr_export_iovec_ptr_all(), writev() and then vstr_del() were called.
 
Function: vstr_sc_write_file()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *

Type [4]: const char *
 
Parameter [5]: Flags to pass to the open() system call
 
Type [5]: int
 
Parameter [6]: Mode to pass to the open() system call
 
Type [6]: mode_t
 
Parameter [7]: Offset to start writing at
 
Type [7]: off64_t
 
Parameter [8]: Returns error code starting VSTR_TYPE_SC_WRITE_FILE_ERR_
 
Type [8]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to take data from a Vstr string and write it to a file, after open()ing the file (Parameter[4]) with open flags (Parameter[5]) and open mode (Parameter[6]).
Note:
 

Because multiple system calls will be done inside this function, and that doing a write automatically removes data it's possible for this function to return failure but have actually written some data out. The other alternative would be to copy all the data until after the close() happened, which would be vastly less efficient.

Parameter [2]: Append position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Binary value to add
 
Type [3]: uint_least16_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to add a 16bit (two byte) binary value (Parameter[3]), in Big Endian format, to the Vstr string (Parameter[1]).
Note:
 

This function is here because too many existing network protcols send binary values, in Big Endian format. This does not mean it is a good thing to do for new protcols, look at netstrings or something equally nicer.
 
Function: vstr_sc_add_b_uint32()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure

Explanation:
 

This function is used to parse a 16bit (two byte) binary value (Parameter[4]), in Big Endian format, from the Vstr string (Parameter[1]).
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.

Function: vstr_iter_fwd_beg()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure

Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Parameter [4]: Vstr iteration
 
Type [4]: struct Vstr_iter *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to initialized an iteration.
Note:
 

The only time this function will return FALSE is if you pass an invalid position and length.
 

If you alter the Vstr string (Parameter[1]) while using a iteration, then the iteration will be in an undefined state.
 
Function: vstr_iter_fwd_nxt()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr iteration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_iter *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to step to the next iteration.
Note:
 

If you alter the Vstr string (Parameter[1]) while using a iteration, then the iteration will be in an undefined state.
 
Function: vstr_iter_fwd_chr()
 
Returns: Character at that point in iteration
 
Type: char
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr iteration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_iter *
 
Parameter [2]: Vstr iteration return type (VSTR_TYPE_ITER_*).
 
Type [2]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to return the current character and post increment the iteration (Ie think "ret = *iter++"). However it is safe to call vstr_iter_fwd_chr() forever, after it gets to the end of the iteration it will just return 0 (and set the return type to _END).
Note:
 

If you alter the Vstr string (Parameter[1]) while using a iteration, then the iteration will be in an undefined state.
 
Function: vstr_iter_fwd_buf()
 
Returns: Length of iteration moved
 
Type: size_t
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr iteration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_iter *
 
Parameter [2]: Length to move iteration forward (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Data array to export to
 
Type [3]: void *
 
Parameter [4]: Length of data (Parameter[3])
 
Type [4]: size_t
 
Parameter [5]: Vstr iteration return type (VSTR_TYPE_ITER_*).
 
Type [5]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to move the iteration forward a particular length (Parameter[2]). It will also export the data for the length, if there is room.
 

It is safe to call vstr_iter_fwd_buf() forever, after it gets to the end of the iteration it will just return 0 (and set the return type to _END). If the passed length is greater than the length of the iteration left, the length will be truncated and the truncated value will be returned.
 

Passing NULL as the buffer (Parameter[3]) is only valid if the buffer length (Parameter[4]) is zero.
Note:
 

If you alter the Vstr string (Parameter[1]) while using a iteration, then the iteration will be in an undefined state.

Parameter [4]: Length of data (Parameter[3])
 
Type [4]: size_t
 
Parameter [5]: Vstr iteration return type (VSTR_TYPE_ITER_*).
 
Type [5]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This function works like vstr_iter_fwd_buf(), except that the buffer (Parameter[3]) must be non-NULL and the end of the data exported using the iteration will always be NIL terminated.
 
Function: vstr_iter_pos()
 
Returns: Position of iteration

Function: vstr_cntl_base()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Option type starting VSTR_CNTL_BASE_*

Function: vstr_cntl_conf()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int

Parameter[1]:.br Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Option type starting VSTR_CNTL_CONF_*
 
Type [2]: int
 
Parameter [ ... ]: Options depending on value of Parameter[2]
 
Type [ ... ]: ...
 
Explanation:
 

This function will get or set options for the Vstr configuration (Parameter[1]).
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 
Function: VSTR_FLAGXX()
 
Returns: The value of the flags combined
 
Type: unsigned int
 
Parameter [1]: Name of flag type to use.
 
Type [1]: <symbol>
 
Parameter [ ... ]: Names of a flags in the given flag type
 
Type [ ... ]: <symbol>
 
Explanation:
 

This isn't one macro function but a group of functions that all do the same thing, just with different numbers of arguments. They combine the namespace requirements so that you can specify multiple flags in a concise manner. For instance VSTR_FLAG06() combines 6 flags. So instead of having to wite...

(VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_NUL |
VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_BEL |
VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_BS |
VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_HT |
VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_LF |
VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_VT)

...you can write...

VSTR_FLAG06(CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW, NUL, BEL, BS, HT, LF, VT)

...which is a lot more readable as the number of flags increases.
 

The Range of macro functions is from VSTR_FLAG01() to VSTR_FLAG31(), the number at the end referring to how many flags are passed to it (not the number of parameters, which is one more than that).
 
Function: vstr_num()
 
Returns: Number of nodes used in the vstr
 
Type: unsigned int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

This function is used to find out how many nodes are being used for a given section of a vstr.
 

If the function can detect that the values of parameters are in error the function will return 0 to indicate an error.
 
Function: vstr_cache_add()
 
Returns: Cookie reference for cache function
 
Type: unsigned int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr configuration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Name of cache function
 
Type [2]: const char *
 
Parameter [3]: Function to use as callback from the cache
 
Type [3]: void *(*)(const struct Vstr_base *, size_t, size_t, unsigned int, void *)
 
Explanation:
 

This function will add the callback function (Parameter[3]) to the Vstr configuration for use in all Vstr strings that use the Vstr configuration and have a cache. The name of the cache function (Parameter[2]) should be unique, the vstr library uses names starting "/vstr__/".
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 

The name of the cache function should be placed in permanent storage, Ie. only the pointer to the name will be stored so you cannot malloc() the name and then free() it after calling the function.
 

The callback function parameters, are the Vstr string, position, length, the type of callback starting VSTR_TYPE_CACHE_ and the data for the cache function.
 

The callback function will not be called if the data for the cache function is NULL.
 

The inline adding and delete from the Vstr strings is not performed if callbacks are registered for the string (because functions will have to be called anyway).
 
Function: vstr_cache_get()
 
Returns: Data for cache function
 
Type: void *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Cookie reference for cache function
 
Type [2]: unsigned int
 
Explanation:
 

This function will get the data for the cache function.
 
Function: vstr_cache_set()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Cookie reference for cache function
 
Type [2]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [3]: Data for cache function
 
Type [3]: void *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will set the data for the cache function.
Note:
 

The callback function will not be called if the data for the cache function is NULL.
 
Function: vstr_cache_srch()
 
Returns: Cookie reference for cache functions
 
Type: unsigned int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr configuration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Name of cache function
 
Type [2]: const char *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will find a cache function name (Parameter[2]) and return the cookie reference for use in the other cache functions.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 
Function: vstr_cache_cb_sub()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Start position in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [2]: size_t
 
Parameter [3]: Length in the Vstr string (Parameter[1])
 
Type [3]: size_t
 
Explanation:
 

If you are substituting data in a vstr (from an iovec export, followed by a readv for instance or changing the data in a mmap()'d area) then you can use this function to notify the vstr caching mechanisms.
Note:
 

This is a last resort function, to make the hard things possible, use the vstr_sub_*() functions instead.
 
Function: vstr_cache_cb_free()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: const struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: Cookie reference for cache function
 
Type [2]: unsigned int
 
Explanation:
 

If you have generated cache data, this function will tell the cache function to free that data.
Note:
 

A Cookie reference of "zero" means tell all cache functions to free cached data. Note that this can cause severe performance degradation if overly used.
 
Function: vstr_data_add()
 
Returns: Cookie reference for cache function
 
Type: unsigned int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr configuration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Name of cache function
 
Type [2]: const char *
 
Parameter [3]: Reference to data to store in the configuration
 
Type [3]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will add the data reference (Parameter[3]) to the Vstr configuration. The name of the data reference (Parameter[2]) should be unique, the vstr library will use names starting "/vstr__/".
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 

The name of the cache function should be placed in permanent storage, Ie. only the pointer to the name will be stored so you cannot malloc() the name and then free() it after calling the function (you can free it after calling vstr_data_del()).
 

Storing a reference that is NULL is valid, and will act like storing a reference to NULL.
 
Function: vstr_data_srch()
 
Returns: Cookie reference for data configuration functions
 
Type: unsigned int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr configuration
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Name of data configuration function
 
Type [2]: const char *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will find a configuration data name (Parameter[2]) and return the cookie reference for use in the other data functions.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 
Function: vstr_data_del()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Cookie reference for configuration data function
 
Type [2]: unsigned int
 
Explanation:
 

This function will release the reference on the configuration data, and allow the cookie to be reused on a later vstr_data_add() call.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 
Function: vstr_data_get()
 
Returns: Data for configuration data function
 
Type: void *
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Cookie reference for configuration data function
 
Type [2]: unsigned int
 
Explanation:
 

This function will get the data for the configuration data storage function.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 
Function: vstr_data_set()
 
Returns: Nothing
 
Type: void
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_conf *
 
Parameter [2]: Cookie reference for configuration data function
 
Type [2]: unsigned int
 
Parameter [3]: Reference to data to store in the configuration
 
Type [3]: struct Vstr_ref *
 
Explanation:
 

This function will set the data for the configuration data storage function.
Note:
 

If the configuration (Parameter[1]) is NULL, then the global configuration is used.
 

Storing a reference that is NULL is valid, and will act like storing a reference to NULL.
 

All allocations are done at vstr_data_add() time, so this function can never fail.
 
Function: vstr_swap_conf()
 
Returns: TRUE on success and FALSE on failure
 
Type: int
 
Parameter [1]: Vstr string
 
Type [1]: struct Vstr_base *
 
Parameter [2]: New Vstr configuration; returned old Vstr configuration
 
Type [2]: struct Vstr_conf **
 
Explanation:
 

This function will swap a Vstr configuration into a Vstr string possibly changing the Vstr configuration to be compatible with the Vstr string. On success the Vstr configuration that was being used by the Vstr string is returned.
Note:
 

Using this function allows you to use vstr_add_fmt() and vstr_add_vfmt() on a Vstr that you don't own, by doing...

if (vstr_swap_conf(notmy_vstr_string, &my_vstr_conf))
{
vstr_add_fmt(notmy_vstr_string, ... );
vstr_swap_conf(notmy_vstr_string, &my_vstr_conf);
}

...note that the last call swaps the configuration back. However if you are
not using any custom specifiers then you can just call vstr_add_sysfmt() instead.
 

The function will return 0 if it needs to allocate memory and cannot do so.
