NAME

gfs_pio_readline - read one line  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gfarm/gfarm.h>

char *gfs_pio_readline (GFS_File f, char **bufp, size_t *sizep, size_t *lenp);  

DESCRIPTION

gfs_pio_readline() reads one line from the file specified by the parameter gf.

Parameter bufp specifies an address of a pointer variable initialzed by NULL at first. gfs_pio_readline() allocates a buffer for I/O dynamically, and stores the address of the buffer to this variable pointed by bufp. Parameter sizep specifies an address of a size_t variable initialized by 0. This size_t variable is used to record the size of the buffer. Or, you can specify a buffer allocated by malloc(3) in the variable pointed by the parameter bufp. In this case, you have to specify the size of the allocated buffer by the parameter sizep. If the length of the line exceeds the size of the buffer, the buffer will be automatically realloc(3)ed, and the variable pointed by bufp and sizep will be updated respectively. Note that you are responsible to free(3) this buffer.

This function returns the length of the line to a variable pointed by the parameter lenp. This length includes newline character.

Just like gfs_pio_gets(3), this function doesn't remove newline character at the end of lines. Also, this function always appends '\0' at the end of strings. You can deal with lines which include '\0' character by using the variable pointed by the parameter lenp.

If the file reaches its end, the length of the result string becomes 0.

This function is equivalent to gfs_pio_readdelim(f, bufp, sizep, lenp, "\n", 1).  

RETURN VALUES

NULL
The function terminated successfully.
GFARM_ERR_NO_MEMORY
Insufficient memory was available.

Note that you need to free(3) the buffer pointed by the parameter bufp

Others
An error except the above occurred. The reason is shown by its pointed strings.
