GENDERS_TESTQUERY(3)						    LIBGENDERS						      GENDERS_TESTQUERY(3)

NAME
genders_testquery - query genders database for a set of nodes SYNOPSIS
#include <genders.h> int genders_testquery(genders_t handle, const char *node, const char *query); DESCRIPTION
genders_testquery() tests if the node pointed to by node meets the conditions specified in the query. If node is NULL, the current node is tested. Queries are based on the union, intersection, difference, or complement of genders attributes and values. The query is passed as a string through the query parameter. The set operation union is represented by two pipe symbols ('||'), intersection by two ampersand symbols ('&&'), difference by two minus symbols ('--'), and complement by a tilde ('~'). Set operations are performed left to right. Parentheses may be used to change the order of operations. A list of query examples are listed below. A NULL query retrieves all nodes from the genders database. EXAMPLES
The following are example queries that can be passed to genders_testquery(). Test if a node contains the mgmt or login attribute: "mgmt||login" Test if a node is not a login node: "all--login" Test if a node is both a login node and ntp server: "login&&ntpserv" Test if a node is not a mgmt or login node: "~(mgmt||login)" RETURN VALUES
If the node as met the conditions of the query, 1 is returned. 0 is returned if the node does not meet the conditions of the query. On error, -1 is returned, and an error code is returned in handle. The error code can be retrieved via genders_errnum(3) , and a description of the error code can be retrieved via genders_strerror(3). Error codes are defined in genders.h. ERRORS
GENDERS_ERR_NULLHANDLE The handle parameter is NULL. The genders handle must be created with genders_handle_create(3). GENDERS_ERR_NOTLOADED genders_load_data(3) has not been called to load genders data. GENDERS_ERR_PARAMETERS An incorrect parameter has been passed in. GENDERS_ERR_SYNTAX There is a syntax error in the query. GENDERS_ERR_OUTMEM malloc(3) has failed internally, system is out of memory. GENDERS_ERR_MAGIC handle has an incorrect magic number. handle does not point to a genders handle or handle has been destroyed by genders_han- dle_destroy(3). GENDERS_ERR_INTERNAL An internal system error has occurred. FILES
