NE_BUFFER(3)							neon API reference						      NE_BUFFER(3)

ne_buffer - string buffer handling SYNOPSIS
#include <ne_string.h> typedef struct { char *data; size_t used; size_t length; } ne_buffer; DESCRIPTION
The ne_buffer type represents an expandable memory buffer for holding NUL-terminated strings. The data field points to the beginnning of the string, the length of which is given by the used field. The current size of memory allocated is given by the length field. It is not recommended that the fields of a buffer are manipulated directly. The data pointer may change when the buffer is modified. A buffer is created using ne_buffer_create(3) or ne_buffer_ncreate(3), and destroyed using ne_buffer_destroy(3) or ne_buffer_finish(3). The functions ne_buffer_append(3), ne_buffer_zappend(3) and ne_buffer_concat(3) are used to append data to a buffer. If the string referenced by the data pointer is modified directly (rather than using one of the functions listed above), ne_buffer_altered must be called. AUTHOR

NE_BUFFER_APPEND(3)						neon API reference					       NE_BUFFER_APPEND(3)

ne_buffer_append, ne_buffer_zappend, ne_buffer_concat - append data to a string buffer SYNOPSIS
#include <ne_string.h> void ne_buffer_append (ne_buffer *buf, const char *string, size_t len); void ne_buffer_zappend (ne_buffer *buf, const char *string); void ne_buffer_concat (ne_buffer *buf, const char *str, ...); DESCRIPTION
The ne_buffer_append and ne_buffer_zappend functions append a string to the end of a buffer; extending the buffer as necessary. The len passed to ne_buffer_append specifies the length of the string to append; there must be no NUL terminator in the first len bytes of the string. ne_buffer_zappend must be passed a NUL-terminated string. The ne_buffer_concat function takes a variable-length argument list following str; each argument must be a char * pointer to a NUL-termi- nated string. A NULL pointer must be given as the last argument to mark the end of the list. The strings (including str) are appended to the buffer in the order given. None of the strings passed to ne_buffer_concat are modified. EXAMPLES
The following code will output "Hello, world. And goodbye.". ne_buffer *buf = ne_buffer_create(); ne_buffer_zappend(buf, "Hello"); ne_buffer_concat(buf, ", world. ", "And ", "goodbye.", NULL); puts(buf->data); ne_buffer_destroy(buf); SEE ALSO
