NAME

tdb_store - store a record in a tdb database.

SYNOPSIS

#include <tdb.h> int tdb_store(TDB_CONTEXT *tdb, TDB_DATA key, TDB_DATA record, int flag);

DESCRIPTION

Store a lump of data pointed to by record in the tdb database under the index pointed to by key. The TDB_DATA structure used by both key and record is defined as: typedef struct { char *dptr; size_t dsize; } TDB_DATA; The flag determines the way that tdb_store behaves and can be any one of the following values. TDB_REPLACE Insert a record creating a new one or overwriting an existing one. TDB_INSERT Insert a new entry but refuse to overwrite an existing entry. TDB_MODIFY Replace an existing record with a new one. This will fail if, a record does not already exist.

RETURN VALUE

A return value of 0 indicates success and -1 indicates failure.
