These functions provide string buffer management.

The String Buffer data type is designed to be a mutable string, allowing the appending, prepending or insertion of a string to a buffer.

For more information see this example.

Function Documentation

Eina_Bool eina_strbuf_append ( Eina_Strbuf buf,
const char *  str 
)

Appends a string to a buffer, reallocating as necessary.

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]strThe string to append.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE on failure such as if str could not be appended.

This function appends str to buf. It computes the length of str, so is slightly slower than eina_strbuf_append_length(). If the length is known beforehand, consider using that variant.

See also:
eina_strbuf_append()
eina_strbuf_append_length()
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
entry_example.c.

Append a slice to a buffer, reallocating as necessary.

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]sliceThe slice to append.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE if slice could not be appended.

This function appends slice to buf.

Since (EFL) :
1.19.0 Appends an Eina_Strbuf to a buffer, reallocating as necessary.
Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]dataThe string buffer to append.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE if data could not be appended.

This function appends data to buf. data must be allocated and different from NULL. It is slightly faster than eina_strbuf_append() as it does not compute the size of str.

eina_strbuf_append_n()
eina_strbuf_append_length()
Since (EFL) :
1.9.0
Since :

Appends a character to a string buffer, reallocating as necessary.

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]cThe character to append.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE if c could not be appended.

This function appends c to buf.

Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
eina_strbuf_01.c.
Eina_Bool eina_strbuf_append_escaped ( Eina_Strbuf buf,

)

Appends an escaped string to a buffer, reallocating as necessary.

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]strThe string to append.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE if str could not be appended.

This function escapes and then appends the string str to buf.

Eina_Bool eina_strbuf_append_length ( Eina_Strbuf buf,
const char *  str,
size_t  length 
)

Appends a string of exact length to a buffer, reallocating as necessary.

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]strThe string to append.
[in]lengthThe exact length to use.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE if str could not be appended.

This function appends str to buf. str must be of size at most length. It is slightly faster than eina_strbuf_append() as it does not compute the size of str. It is useful when dealing with strings of known size, such as eina_stringshare.

See also:

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
[in]strThe string to append.
[in]maxlenThe maximum number of characters to append.
Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE if str could not be appended.

This function appends at most maxlen characters of str to buf. It can't append more than the length of str. It computes the length of str, so it is slightly slower than eina_strbuf_append_length().

void eina_strbuf_rtrim ( Eina_Strbuf buf)

Right trims the string buffer.

[in,out]bufThe string buffer.

This function removes whitespace at the end of the buffer's string.

Since :

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.

This function frees the string contained in buf without freeing buf.

const char* eina_strbuf_string_get ( const Eina_Strbuf buf)

Retrieves a pointer to the contents of a string buffer.

Parameters:
[in]bufThe string buffer.
Returns:
The current string in the string buffer.

This function returns the string contained in buf. The returned value must not be modified and will no longer be valid if buf is modified. In other words, calling eina_strbuf_append() or similar functions will make this pointer invalid. The pointer returned by this function must not be freed.

Parameters:
[in,out]bufThe string buffer.
Returns:
The string that was contained in buf.

This function returns the string contained in buf. buf is then initialized and does not own the returned string anymore. The caller must release the memory of the returned string by calling free().
