NAME

gd_fragment_namespace — report or change the root namespace of a fragment of a dirfile database

SYNOPSIS

#include <getdata.h> const char *gd_fragment_namespace(DIRFILE *dirfile, int fragment_index, char *new_namespace);

DESCRIPTION

The gd_fragment_namespace() function can be used to update and/or query the root namespace of a fragment in the dirfile(5) database specified by dirfile. If new_namespace is NULL, then the current root namespace of the fragment indexed by fragment_index is returned. If new_namespace is non-NULL, then the root namespace is first changed to the string provided before being reported. The new namespace may option‐ ally contain a single, trailing dot (.). To remove an existing root namespace, pass a pointer to the empty string ("") as new_namespace. The root namespace of the root format file (the one indexed by fragment_index=0) may not be changed. It is always the empty string. The dirfile argument must point to a valid DIRFILE object previously created by a call to gd_open(3).

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion, gd_fragment_namespace() returns a non-NULL pointer to a read- only string containing the current root namespace of the fragment specified. This will be a copy of the string new_namespace, if that parameter was non-NULL. If the fragment's root namespace is empty, a pointer to the empty string ("") will be returned. On error, this function returns NULL and sets the dirfile error to a non-zero error value. Possible dirfile error values are: GD_E_ACCMODE The dirfile was opened read-only. GD_E_ALLOC A memory allocation error occurred. GD_E_BAD_CODE The supplied new_fragment was not a valid namespace. GD_E_BAD_DIRFILE The supplied dirfile was invalid. GD_E_BAD_INDEX The supplied index was out of range. This error will also be returned if an at‐ tempt is made to change the root namespace of the root format file (fragment_index zero). GD_E_DUPLICATE Attempting to change the root namespace resulted in a duplicated field definition. GD_E_PROTECTED The protection level of the specified fragment prohibits metadata changes. The dirfile error may be retrieved by calling gd_error(3). A descriptive error string for the last error encountered can be obtained from a call to gd_error_string(3).

HISTORY

The gd_fragment_namespace() function appeared in GetData-0.10.0.
