Constant: VSTR_COMPILE_ATTRIBUTES
 
Explanation:
 

This switch controls whether gcc type __attribute__() statements are used in the public headers headers for the library. If the value is 1 then if they are supported by the compiler that built the library they will be used, if the value is 0 they won't be used at all.
 
Constant: VSTR_COMPILE_INCLUDE
 
Explanation:
 

This switch controls whether including <vstr.h> will include all the system headers needed for the exported interfaces. If the value is 1 then if they are included, if the value is 0 they won't be included.
 
Constant: VSTR_COMPILE_INLINE
 
Explanation:
 

This switch controls whether inline functions will be used in the public headers for the library. If the value is 1 then if they are supported by the compiler that built the library they will be used, if the value is 0 they won't be used.
 
Constant: VSTR_COMPILE_MACRO_FUNCTIONS
 
Explanation:
 

This switch controls whether macro functions will be used in the public headers for the library. If the value is 1 then they will be used, if the value is 0 they won't be used.
Note:
 

This only includes the macro functions which also have real function replacements. For example VSTR_ADD_CSTR_BUF() won't be defined because there is a vstr_add_cstr_buf() function, but VSTR_FMT_CB_ARG_PTR() will always be defined.
 
Constant: VSTR_COMPILE_TYPEDEF
 
Explanation:
 

This switch controls whether typedef will be used for the structs in the public headers for the library. If the value is 1 then they will be used, if the value is 0 they won't be used at all (and your code will have to use struct tags instead -- note all libraries using vstr should compile with this option set).

Constant: VSTR_MAX_NODE_ALL
 
Explanation:
 

This is the largest size a node can be, if you pass values greater than this to vstr_add_ptr() etc. then multiple nodes will be allocated.
 
Constant: VSTR_MAX_NODE_BUF
 
Explanation:
 

This is the largest size a node _BUF type can be, if you pass values greater than this to vstr_add_buf() etc. then multiple nodes will be allocated.

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_NODE_BUF
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to vstr_make_space_nodes() specifies nodes of type _BUF, which are the only nodes that can be "written" to. These nodes are added into a Vstr string by the vstr_add_buf() function and the vstr_add_iovec_buf_*() functions.
Note:
 

A call to vstr_sub_buf() with a Vstr string consisting of _BUF nodes means that data will be substituted inplace.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_NODE_NON
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to vstr_make_space_nodes() specifies nodes of type _NON, which are nodes that contain "nothing". These nodes can be used as placeholders for data, and are added into a Vstr string by the vstr_add_non() function.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_NODE_PTR
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to vstr_make_space_nodes() specifies nodes of type _PTR, which are nodes that contain a memory pointer to an area of memory.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_NODE_REF
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to vstr_make_space_nodes() specifies nodes of type _REF, which are nodes that contain a Vstr memory reference.

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ADD_DEF
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SUB_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to either vstr_sub_vstr() or vstr_add_vstr() specifies that all types of nodes are added as their respective type.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ADD_BUF_PTR
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SUB_BUF_PTR
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to either vstr_sub_vstr() or vstr_add_vstr() specifies that all nodes of type _BUF are added as type _PTR.
Note:
 

If you add/del/sub data in the original Vstr string then because the added data is only pointers to the old data, life may become interesting for you.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ADD_BUF_REF
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SUB_BUF_REF
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to either vstr_sub_vstr() or vstr_add_vstr() specifies that all nodes of type _BUF are converted to type _REF before being added.
Note:
 

This means that if you do a substitution on the original Vstr string it will now be less efficient, as the _REF nodes cannot have data substituted in place.
 

The _BUF nodes will not go back to the pool in the Vstr configuration as happens if you deleted them.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ADD_ALL_REF
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SUB_ALL_REF
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to either vstr_sub_vstr() or vstr_add_vstr() specifies that the data should be taken as though vstr_export_ref() was called on the original Vstr string.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ADD_ALL_BUF
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SUB_ALL_BUF
 
Explanation:
 

This type when passed to either vstr_sub_vstr() or vstr_add_vstr() specifies that the data should all be added via. vstr_add_buf().

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_END
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that there are no more arguments to be expected.
Note:
 

Because you can have multiple arguments associated with one custom "fmt" specification this has to be the last argument to every call to vstr_fmt_add().
 

Just specifying this type means that there are no arguments used, by the custom "fmt" specification.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_INT
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "int" type from the argument list passed to it

Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "long long" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_ULONG_LONG
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect an "unsigned long long" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_SSIZE_T
 
Explanation:

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_SIZE_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "size_t" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTRDIFF_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "ptrdiff_t" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_INTMAX_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "intmax_t" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_UINTMAX_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "uintmax_t" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_DOUBLE
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "double" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_DOUBLE_LONG
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "long double" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_VOID
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "void *" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_CHAR
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "char *" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_WCHAR_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect a "wchar_t *" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_INT
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect an "int *" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_INTMAX_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect an "intmax_t *" type from the argument list passed to it

Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect an "ptrdiff_t *" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_SHORT
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect an "short *" type from the argument list passed to it

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_PTR_SSIZE_T
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should expect an "ssize_t *" type from the argument list passed to it
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_FMT_ERRNO
 
Explanation:
 

This flag means that vstr_add_vfmt() should not expect any arguments passed, but should set the value of errno, just before calling the user callback, to the value upon entering vstr_add_vfmt().

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ITER_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This return flag is 0, and is generally only used as programmer documentation to mean nothing special is meant for this data.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ITER_END
 
Explanation:
 

This return flag means that the data is at an end.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_ITER_NON
 
Explanation:
 

This return flag means that the data is actually from within a node of type VSTR_TYPE_NODE_NON.

Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This flag is the same as just specifying VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_STR.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_STR
 
Explanation:
 

This flag indicates that the object should be treated as a C style string, so it is assumed that number orientated flags should be ignored and that the length of the object can be arbitrarily truncated.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_ATOM
 
Explanation:
 

This flag indicates that the object should be treated as an atomic piece of data, so it is assumed that number orientated flags should be ignored and that the length of the object can't be truncated.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_NUM
 
Explanation:
 

This flag indicates that the object you are printing should be treated as a number. For instance setting a precision will truncate the length of the object, unless it is a number. Also +/-/<space> leaders and zero padding will only be done for numbers.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_NEG
 
Explanation:
 

This flag indicates that the number object you are printing should be treated as negative number. This flag has no meaning if VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_NUM is not set.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_HEXNUM_H
 
Explanation:
 

This flag indicates that the number object you are printing should be treated as an uppercase hexadecimal (base 16) number. This flag has no meaning if VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_NUM is not set.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SC_FMT_CB_BEG_OBJ_HEXNUM_L

Constant: VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_NONE
 
Explanation:
 

This flag is 0, and is generally only used as programmer documentation to mean no flags are applied to this function.
Note:
 

Because it is sometimes hard are to notice certain characters, they are classified as "unprintable" by default, the value VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_DEF is a default that is what most people would expect to be classified as unprintable.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_NUL

Constant: VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_HSP
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the ASCII 0xA0 byte through as a "printable" character.
Note:
 

The value 0xA0 is 0x20 with the high bit set, and this character it often printed as space when in an ASCII like encoding.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_ALLOW_HIGH
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the all ASCII bytes greater than or equal to 0xA1 through as "printable" characters.
Note:
 

This includes all the extra characters like not, degree, copyright and micro when in an ASCII like encoding.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_CONV_UNPRINTABLE_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This flag is the same as using the flags for space, comma, dot and underbar. Using just this flag is probably what you'd expect an "unprintable" function to do.

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_NONE
 
Explanation:
 

This error code has the value 0, and means that no error occurred parsing the number from the Vstr string.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_ONLY_S
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the Vstr string consisted only of spaces.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_ONLY_SPM
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the Vstr string consisted only spaces, and a plus or minus sign.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_ONLY_SPMX
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the Vstr string consisted only spaces, a plus or minus sign and a "0x" base 16 prefix.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_OOB
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the Vstr string had characters in it that where out of bounds from the working set.
Note:
 

This out of bounds includes the Vstr string "++" as well as "4A", when parsing in a base less than 11.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_OVERFLOW
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the number parsed from the Vstr string would overflow the type it is being parsed into, this is only returned when the VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_OVERFLOW flag was passed to the parse function.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_NEGATIVE
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the number parsed from the Vstr string starts with a '-' (Hyphen) character when it is supposed to be an unsigned type.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_BEG_ZERO
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the number parsed from the Vstr string starts with a '0' (Digit Zero) character, when the VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_NO_BEG_ZERO flag was passed to the parse function.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This flag is 0, and is generally only used as programmer documentation to mean no flags are applied to this function.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_LOCAL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the parsing from ASCII numbers into "local" numbers (whatever is generated by '0 .. '9' by the host compiler). This can be ignored by anyone not using an EBCDIC character set, or something equally weird.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_SEP
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the parsing of the '_' (Low Line) separator character between the digits of the number, so "1234" and "1_234" would both parse the same.
Note:
 

The separator is only allowed within the digits of the number, so " _+_1234" would fail as would "_1234".
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_OVERFLOW
 
Explanation:
 

This flag turns on the overflow checking, in other words without it VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_NUM_ERR_OVERFLOW will never be returned as an error code.
Note:
 

The return value with this set is the highest number that can be parsed from the beginning of the Vstr string, while the value without this flag would be the parsed number modulo the highest number of the type.
 

For example given a type that had a maximum of 10, then parsing "64" would give you 6 with the flag, and 4 without.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_SPACE
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows one or more ' ' (Space) characters before the number or number prefix (Plus Sign, Hyphen).
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_NO_BEG_ZERO
 
Explanation:
 

This flag disallows one or more '0' (Digit Zero) characters before the number.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_NO_BEG_PM
 
Explanation:
 

This flag disallows a plus or a minus character before the number.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_NUM_NO_NEGATIVE
 
Explanation:
 

This flag disallows negative values.
Note:
 

While this flag can be passed to vstr_parse_int() etc. it is most useful when passed to the generic function vstr_parse_num().

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_PARSE_IPV4_ERR_NONE

Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This flag is 0, and is generally only used as programmer documentation to mean no flags are applied to this function.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_LOCAL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the parsing from ASCII numbers into "local" numbers (whatever is generated by '0 .. '9' by the host compiler). This can be ignored by anyone not using an EBCDIC character set, or something equally weird.

Explanation:
 

This flag allows the use of leading zeros in the ipv4 address and masks.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_FULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the parsing so that the function will return an error if a non full ipv4 address is given (Ie. 127/8 is a non full ipv4 with a CIDR mask). If this flag isn't given the missing numbers are assumed to be zero.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_CIDR
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the parsing out of a CIDR mask, if one is present.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_CIDR_FULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the parsing so that the function will return an error if a non full ipv4 CIDR mask is given (Ie. 127.0.0.1/ is an ipv4 with a non full ipv4 CIDR mask). If this flag isn't given the missing CIDR mask is assumed to be 32.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_NETMASK
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the parsing out of a ipv4 netmask, if one is present.
Note:
 

If both this and the VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_CIDR flag is given, then either masking interface will be parsed out (it will try a CIDR mask first and if that filas, fall back to a netmask prefix).
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_NETMASK_FULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the parsing so that the function will return an error if a non full ipv4 NETMASK mask is given (Ie. 127.0.0.1/255.0 is an ipv4 with a non full ipv4 netmask). If this flag isn't given the missing numbers are assumed to be zero.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_PARSE_IPV4_ONLY
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the parsing so that the function will return an error if the entire string isn't used to contain the ipv4 and option mask.
Note:
 

When this error code is returned, the ip address is still parsed out and as usable as if no error had occurred.

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_FMT_CB_IPV6_ALIGNED
 
Explanation:
 

This flag outputs the ipv6 address as 8 groups of 4 hexadecimal values. For example "FFFF:0EEE:00DD:000C:0000:0000:0001:0002" would be an ipv6 address output in aligned mode.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_FMT_CB_IPV6_COMPACT
 
Explanation:
 

This flag outputs the ipv6 address in as small a representation as possible, for example "FFFF:EEE:DD:C::1:2" would be an ipv6 address output in compact mode.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_FMT_CB_IPV6_STD
 
Explanation:
 

This flag outputs the ipv6 address as 8 groups of hexadecimal numbers between 0 and FFFF, this is the format mostly used in standards. documents, for example "FFFF:EEE:DD:C:0:0:1:2" would be an ipv6 address output in compact mode.

Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This flag is 0, and is generally only used as programmer documentation to mean no flags are applied to this function.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_BEG_NULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the split functions to add sections at the beginning of the input that have a null string before the match. For example the input "::abcd:..." split on ":" would have 2 sections at positions 1 and 2 of length 0, without this flag the first section would be at position 3 with length 4.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_MID_NULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the split functions to add sections in the middle of the input that have a null string between 2 matches. For example the input "a::abcd:..." split on ":" would have the second section at position 3 of length 0, without this flag the second section would be at position 4 of length 4.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_END_NULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the split functions to add sections at the end of the input that have a null string after a match. For example the input "a::" split on ":" would have the second section at position 3 of length 0, without this flag there would only be one section added.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_POST_NULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the split functions to add a final post section of the input that ends with a match. For example the input "a:" split on ":" would have the second section at position 3 (outside the range of the input) of length 0, without this flag there would only be one section added.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_NO_RET
 
Explanation:
 

This flag allows the split functions to return 1, when the Vstr sections doesn't have any more room. Without the flag the split functions would calculate the number of splits that would have been added if there was room in the Vstr sections.
 
Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SPLIT_REMAIN
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the split functions, when used with a limit, so that the last section added is for the remainder of the input.

Constant: VSTR_FLAG_SECTS_FOREACH_ALLOW_NULL
 
Explanation:
 

This flag changes the foreach function so that it calls the foreach callback on sections of null length (a non zero position with a zero length).
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SECTS_FOREACH_DEF
 
Explanation:
 

This return value is 0, and is generally only used as programmer documentation to mean nothing special should happen on return from the callback.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SECTS_FOREACH_DEL
 
Explanation:
 

This return value tells the foreach function to delete the current section before the next callback is called.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SECTS_FOREACH_RET
 
Explanation:
 

This return value tells the foreach function to return immediately (it does the same thing as a break statement in a C for loop.

This type means that a delete operation has just happened on the Vstr string, the position and length arguments are as taken from the vstr_del() function.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_CACHE_SUB
 
Explanation:
 

This type means that a substitute operation has just happened on the Vstr string, the position and length arguments are as taken from one of the vstr_sub_* functions.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_CACHE_FREE
 
Explanation:
 

This type means that the data in the cache needs to be free()'d, the callback should always return NULL when this type is passed in.
 

The position and length arguments are undefined.

If another error occurred (Eg. fstat()/mmap()), then any errors from close() will be hidden.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_MMAP_FD_ERR_MEM
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_MMAP_FILE_ERR_MEM
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that memory could not be allocated.

Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FILE_ERR_CLOSE_ERRNO
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the call to close() returned -1, errno is set.
Note:
 

Even though this is an error, the readv() has already occurred and was successful.
 

If another error occurred (Eg. fstat()/readv()), then any errors from close() will be hidden.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FD_ERR_EOF
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FILE_ERR_EOF
 
Explanation:
 

This error code means that the call to readv() returned 0.
Note:
 

If you pass 0 as the length to the read_*_file functions, you can still get the _EOF error if the file is truncated while it is being read.
 

To help the programer unify error paths errno is set to ENOSPC.
 
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FD_ERR_MEM
Constant: VSTR_TYPE_SC_READ_FILE_ERR_MEM

Constant: VSTR_CNTL_CONF_GET_NUM_BUF_SZ
 
Parameter [1]: Returns allocated size of data portion of _BUF nodes
 
Type [1]: unsigned int *
 
Explanation:
 

This option will get the size of the allocated portion of a _BUF type node.
Note:
 

The default value of this attribute is currently 48, the reason for this is that 8 bytes are used for generic node storage and 8 more bytes are overhead used as in glibc's malloc() implementation. This means that 64 bytes are allocated for each node of data. Looking at the data given in the size_cmp spreadsheet and the ex_perf_nodesize example my guess is that node sizes above 512 probably gain very little, while consumiung more space.
