NAME

genders_getnodes - get nodes from the genders file  

SYNOPSIS

#include <genders.h>

int genders_getnodes(genders_t handle, char *nodes[], int len, const char *attr, const char *val);
 

DESCRIPTION

genders_getnodes() gets the names of nodes in the genders file that have the attribute specified by attr and the value specified by val. The nodes are stored in the list pointed to by nodes. len indicates the number of nodes that can be stored in the list. If attr is NULL, genders_getnodes() returns all the nodes listed in the genders file. If val is NULL, attribute values are ignored.

To avoid passing in a list that is not large enough to store all the nodes, genders_getnumnodes(3) should be used to determine the minimum number of elements nodes should be able to store. genders_nodelist_create(3) could be used to create a list that is guaranteed to be large enough to store all of the nodes.
 

RETURN VALUES

On success, the number of nodes stored in nodes is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and an error code is returned in handle. The error code can be retrieved via genders_errnum(3) , and a description of the error code can be retrieved via genders_strerror(3). Error codes are defined in genders.h.
 

ERRORS

GENDERS_ERR_NULLHANDLE
The handle parameter is NULL. The genders handle must be created with genders_handle_create(3).
GENDERS_ERR_NOTLOADED
genders_load_data(3) has not been called to load genders data.
GENDERS_ERR_OVERFLOW

GENDERS_ERR_NULLPTR

GENDERS_ERR_MAGIC
