NAME
BrlAPI handles - Typedefs typedef struct brlapi_handle_t brlapi_handle_t Functions size_t BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getHandleSize (void) Detailed Description Each function provided by BrlAPI comes in two versions. 1. A version whose name is prefixed by brlapi_ for clients opening only one simultaneous connection with BrlAPI (most frequen case) 2. A version whose name is prefixed by brlapi__ for use by clients wishing to open more than one connection to BrlAPI. A function called brlapi__foo is used in exactly the same way as its brlapi_foo counterpart, except that it takes an additional argument (the first one), which is a handle letting the client refer to a given connection in a similar manner to what file descriptors do. In case you want to check that your code is not erroneously using brlapi_foo functions, define BRLAPI_NO_SINGLE_SESSION before including <brlapi.h>: that will disable the declaration of all single session functions. Typedef Documentation typedef struct brlapi_handle_t brlapi_handle_t Type for BrlAPI hanles Function Documentation size_t BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getHandleSize (void) Returns the size of an object of type brlapi_handle_t in bytes Author Generated automatically by Doxygen for BrlAPI from the source code.

One should also check for display size, so as to adjust further displaying on it. Macro Definition Documentation #define BRLAPI_MAXNAMELENGTH 31 Maximum name length for names embeded in BrlAPI packets, not counting any termination character Function Documentation int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__getDisplaySize (brlapi_handle_t *handle, unsigned int *x, unsigned int *y) int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi__getDriverName (brlapi_handle_t *handle, char *buffer, size_tsize) int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getDisplaySize (unsigned int *x, unsigned int *y) Return the size of the braille display int BRLAPI_STDCALL brlapi_getDriverName (char *buffer, size_tsize) Return the complete name of the driver used by brltty This function fills its argument with the whole name of the braille terminal if available, terminated with a ''. Parameters: buffer is the buffer given by the application; size is the maximum size for the name buffer. Returns: -1 on error, or a positive value giving the size of the needed buffer, if the supplied one is to small (same as snprintf()).
