DESCRIPTION

These are miscellaneous functions which may be useful with the Cdk widget set.  

AVAILABLE FUNCTIONS

Beep
makes an audible beep. The standard curses beep() does not flush the stream, so it will only beep until a force is made. This forces a flush after issuing the beep command.
CDKallocStrings
Add a new string item to a list. Keep a null pointer on the end so one may use CDKfreeStrings() to deallocate the whole list. The caller is responsible for updating the length of the list. The return value is the updated number of chars used.
CDKcountStrings
Count the number of items in a null-terminated list of character strings. Return the count.
CDKfreeChtypes
Free a list of chtype-strings which is terminated by a null pointer.
CDKfreeStrings
Free a list of character strings which is terminated by a null pointer. Also free list itself.
CDKsplitString
split the string at each occurrence of separator, returning a pointer to a dynamically allocated array of the pieces. The original string is unmodified. The caller is responsible for freeing the result.
baseName
returns a pointer to the first character of the filename in the given pathname. The result should be freed by the caller.
ceilCDK
Return an integer like the math library ceil(), which returns a double.
chlen
returns the length of the (null-terminated) string of chtype's.
chstrncpy
Extract the characters from a null-terminated array of chtype's src. The size of the destination dest is given in maxcount.
chtype2Char
Extract the characters from a null-terminated array of chtype's string. A dynamically allocated string is returned. The caller is responsible for freeing the result.
cleanChar
is analogous to memset. Set the characters in string to the given character. The length of string is given by length. character which will be written.
cleanChtype
is analogous to memset. Set the chtype's in string to the given character. The length of string is given by length.
cmpStrChstr
Compare a char string str to a chtype string chstr. Return -1, 0 or 1 according to whether str is less than, equal to to greater than chstr.
copyChar
copies the string passed in. Unlike strdup this checks to see if the string is NULL before copying.
copyCharList
copies the given list.
copyChtype
function copies the string passed in, analogous to copyChar, but for chtype strings.
copyChtypeList
copies the given list.
dirName
Returns the directory for the given filename, i.e., the part before the * last slash. The return value should be freed by the caller.
floorCDK
Return an integer like the math function floor(), which returns a double.
freeChar
is a wrapper for free. It checks to see if the string is NULL before trying to free the string.
freeCharList
Free the memory used by the given list of strings. The number of strings to free is given by size.
freeChtype
is a wrapper for free, like freeChar.
freeChtypeList
Free the memory used by the given list of chtype strings. The number of strings to free is given by size.
intlen
returns the length of an integer, i.e., the number of characters needed to represent it.
lenCharList
returns the length of the given list.
lenChtypeList
returns the length of the given list.
mode2Char
Given a file protection mode fileMode, store a printable version of the permissions in string, formatted as if by "ls -l"). Return the corresponding permissions data, i.e., ignoring the file-type bits.
searchList
Search the given list of listSize strings for a subset of a word pattern in the given list. Return the index in the list if it is found, or -1 if not found.
sortList
performs a quick sort of the given list. This is a wrapper for qsort, used to sort the list of strings. The number of strings in list is given by length. The list is sorted alphabetically in increasing order.
