int genders_getattr(genders_t handle, char *attrs, char *vals, int len, const char *node);
genders_getattr() gets the attributes and values for the node
pointed to by node. If node is NULL, attributes and
values are retrieved for the current node. The attributes are stored
in the attribute list pointed to by attrs and the attribute
values are stored in vals. If attribute values are not desired,
vals can be set to NULL. len should indicate the number
of elements that can be stored in both the attribute list and
attribute values list.
To avoid passing in a list that is not large enough to store all the
attributes and attribute values,
should be used to determine the minimum number of elements attrs
and vals should be able to store.
could be used to create lists that are guaranteed to be large enough
to store all attributes and attribute values.
On success, the number of attributes stored in attrs is
returned. On error, -1 is returned, and an error code is returned in
handle. The error code can be retrieved via
, and a description of the error code can be retrieved via
Error codes are defined in genders.h.
