#include <X11/extensions/Print.h> Status XpGetDocumentData ( data_display, context, save_proc, finish_proc, client_data )
Display * data_display;
typedef void (*XPSaveProc)( Display *data_display, XPContext context, unsigned char *data, unsigned int data_len, XPointer client_data);The save_proc is repeatedly called on each chunk of document data sent by the X Print Server until either XpEndJob or XpCancelJob is called. data_len specifies the number of bytes in data. The memory for data itself is owned by the library, so save_proc should copy data to another location before returning. After the last block of data has been delivered to save_proc, finish_proc is called with final status. The finish_proc is defined in <X11/extensions/Print.h> as:
typedef void (*XPFinishProc)( Display *data_display, XPContext context, XPGetDocStatus status, XPointer client_data);After XpGetDocumentData successfully registers the callbacks, any generated X errors (for example, BadAlloc) or Xp errors (for example, XPBadContext or XPBadSequence) that are the result of XpGetDocumentData will cause the Xlib error handler to be invoked, and then will cause finish_proc to be called with a status of XPGetDocError. Any other activities (for example, a separate process destroying the print context) that prove fatal to the progress of XpGetDocumentData will also cause finish_proc to be called with a status of XPGetDocError. If XpGetDocumentData is called prior to XpStartJob, then an XPBadSequence error is generated and finish_proc is called with XPGetDocError. If XpGetDocumentData is called after XpStartJob and output_mode was specified as XPSpool, then an XPBadSequence error is generated and finish_proc is called with XPGetDocError. If the producer starts generating data and the consumer cannot consume data quickly enough, then the producer's display connection will be blocked by the X Print Server. Until XpEndJob or XpCancelJob is called, it is possible that various XPPrintNotify events will be generated (for example, a page has been canceled). The data passed to save_proc is not necessarily organized according to the consumer's requests or any generated events, and its consistency is guaranteed only if the entire job completes successfully (i.e. without being canceled or generating an error). When finish_proc is called, sometime after XpGetDocumentData is called and returns, status gives the completion status of the job and is defined in <X11/extensions/Print.h> as:
#define XPGetDocFinished 0 /∗ normal termination */ #define XPGetDocSecondConsumer 1 /∗ setup error */ #define XPGetDocError 2 /∗ progress error */XPGetDocFinished indicates that all intended document data has been delivered by way of save_proc. All cancellation events are guaranteed to have arrived by the time finished_proc is called, and they should be taken into consideration for evaluating the validity of the document data returned. XPGetDocSecondConsumer indicates that a consumer had already been established for the print context. The X Print Server only supports one consumer per print context. XPGetDocError indicates that an error has been generated (for example, XPBadContext or XPBadSequence) and that no further document data will be delivered by the X Print Server to save_proc. After finish_proc returns, save_proc and finish_proc are unregistered and will no longer be called.
