NAME
libnvpair - name-value pair library
SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lnvpair [ library... ] #include <libnvpair.h>
DESCRIPTION
The libnvpair library exports a set of functions for managing name-value pairs. The library defines four opaque handles: nvpair_t handle to a name-value pair nvlist_t handle to a list of name-value pairs nv_alloc_t handle to a pluggable allocator nv_alloc_ops_t handle to pluggable allocator operations The library supports the following operations: o Allocate and free an nvlist_t. o Specify the allocater to be used when manipulating an nvlist_t. o Add and remove an nvpair_t from a list. o Search nvlist_t for a specified name pair. o Pack an nvlist_t into a contiguous buffer. o Expand a packed nvlist into a searchable nvlist_t.
