Detailed Description

Common functions for interfacing a game server and GGZ.

This file contains all libggzmod functions used by game servers to interface with GGZ (and vice versa). Just include ggzmod.h and make sure your program is linked with libggzmod. Then use the functions below as appropriate.

GGZmod currently provides an event-driven interface. Data from communication sockets is read in by the library, and a handler function (registered as a callback) is invoked to handle any events. The calling program should not read/write data from/to the GGZ socket unless it really knows what it is doing.

That this does not apply to the client sockets: ggzmod provides one file desriptor for communicating (TCP) to each client. If data is ready to be read by one of these file descriptors ggzmod may invoke the appropriate handler (see below), but will never actually read any data.

For more information, see the documentation at http://ggz.sf.net/.  

Typedef Documentation

 

typedef struct GGZMod GGZMod

A GGZmod object, used for tracking a ggz<->table connection.

A game client should track a pointer to a GGZMod object; it contains all the state information for communicating with GGZ. The GGZ client will track one such object for every game table that is running.  

typedef void(* GGZModHandler)(GGZMod *mod, GGZModEvent e, const void *data)

Event handler prototype.

A function of this type will be called to handle a ggzmod event.

Parameters:

mod The ggzmod state object.
e The event that has occured.
data Pointer to additional data for the event. The additional data will be of the following form:
GGZMOD_EVENT_STATE: The old state (GGZModState*)
GGZMOD_EVENT_SERVER: The fd of the server connection (int*)
GGZMOD_EVENT_PLAYER: The old player data (int[2])
GGZMOD_EVENT_SEAT: The old seat (GGZSeat*)
GGZMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_SEAT: The old seat (GGZSpectatorSeat*)
GGZMOD_EVENT_ERROR: An error string (char*)

 

Enumeration Type Documentation

 

enum GGZModEvent

Callback events.

Each of these is a possible GGZmod event. For each event, the table may register a handler with GGZmod to handle that event.

See also:

GGZModHandler

ggzmod_set_handler

Enumeration values:

GGZMOD_EVENT_STATE
Module status changed This event occurs when the game's status changes. The old state (a GGZModState*) is passed as the event's data.

See also:

GGZModState

GGZMOD_EVENT_SERVER
A new server connection has been made This event occurs when a new connection to the game server has been made. The fd is passed as the event's data.
GGZMOD_EVENT_PLAYER
The player's seat status has changed.

This event occurs when the player's seat status changes; i.e. he changes seats or starts/stops spectating. The event data is a int[2] pair consisting of the old {is_spectator, seat_num}.

GGZMOD_EVENT_SEAT
A seat change.

This event occurs when a seat change occurs. The old seat (a GGZSeat*) is passed as the event's data. The seat information will be updated before the event is invoked.

GGZMOD_EVENT_SPECTATOR_SEAT
A spectator seat change.

This event occurs when a spectator seat change occurs. The old spectator (a GGZSpectator*) is passed as the event's data. The spectator information will be updated before the event is invoked.

GGZMOD_EVENT_CHAT
A chat message event.

This event occurs when we receive a chat. The chat may have originated in another game client or from the GGZ client; in either case it will be routed to us. The chat information (a GGZChat*) is passed as the event's data. Note that the chat may originate with a player or a spectator, and they may have changed seats or left the table by the time it gets to us.

GGZMOD_EVENT_STATS
A player's stats have been updated.

See also:

ggzmod_player_get_record

ggzmod_player_get_rating

ggzmod_player_get_ranking

ggzmod_player_get_highscore

Parameters:

data The name of the player whose stats have changed.

GGZMOD_EVENT_ERROR
An error has occurred This event occurs when a GGZMod error has occurred. An error message (a char*) will be passed as the event's data. GGZMod may attempt to recover from the error, but it is not guaranteed that the GGZ connection will continue to work after an error has happened.
 

enum GGZModState

Table states.

Each table has a current 'state' that is tracked by ggzmod. First the table is executed and begins running. Then it receives a launch event from GGZ and begins waiting for players. At some point a game will be started and played at the table, after which it may return to waiting. Eventually the table will probably halt and then the program will exit.

More specifically, the game is in the CREATED state when it is first executed. It moves to the CONNECTED state after GGZ first communicates with it, and to WAITING after the connection is established with the game server. After this, the game server may use ggzmod_set_state to change between WAITING, PLAYING, and DONE states. A WAITING game is considered waiting for players (or whatever), while a PLAYING game is actively being played (this information may be, but currently is not, propogated back to GGZ for display purposes). Once the state is changed to DONE, the table is considered dead and will exit shortly thereafter (ggzmod_loop will stop looping, etc.) (see the kill_on_exit game option).

Each time the game state changes, a GGZMOD_EVENT_STATE event will be propogated to the game server.

Enumeration values:

GGZMOD_STATE_CREATED
Initial state. The game starts out in this state. Once the state is changed it should never be changed back.
GGZMOD_STATE_CONNECTED
Connected state. After the GGZ client and game client get connected, the game changes into this state automatically. Once this happens messages may be sent between these two. Once the game leaves this state it should never be changed back.
GGZMOD_STATE_WAITING
Waiting state. After the game client and game server are connected, the client enters the waiting state. The game client may now call ggzmod_set_state to change between WAITING, PLAYING, and DONE states.
GGZMOD_STATE_PLAYING
Playing state. This state is only entered after the game client changes state to it via ggzmod_set_state. State may be changed back and forth between WAITING and PLAYING as many times as are wanted.
GGZMOD_STATE_DONE
Done state. Once the game client is done running, ggzmod_set_state should be called to set the state to done. At this point nothing 'new' can happen. The state cannot be changed again after this. However the game client will not be terminated by the GGZ client; GGZ just waits for it to exit of its own volition.
 

enum GGZModType

The 'type' of ggzmod.

The 'flavor' of GGZmod object this is. Affects what operations are allowed.

Enumeration values:

GGZMOD_GGZ
Used by the ggz client ('ggz').
GGZMOD_GAME
Used by the game client ('table').
 

Function Documentation

 

int ggzmod_connect (GGZMod * ggzmod)

Connect to ggz.

Call this function to make an initial GGZ <-> game connection.

When called by the game server, this function makes the physical connection to ggz.
When called by ggz, it will launch a table and connect to it.

Parameters:

ggzmod The ggzmod object.

Returns:

0 on success, -1 on failure.

 

int ggzmod_disconnect (GGZMod * ggzmod)

Disconnect from ggz.

When called by the game server, this function stops the connection to GGZ. It should only be called when the table is ready to exit.
When called by the GGZ server, this function will kill and clean up after the table.

Parameters:

ggzmod The ggzmod object.

Returns:

0 on success, -1 on failure.

 

int ggzmod_dispatch (GGZMod * ggzmod)

Check for and handle input.

This function handles input from the communications sockets:

It will check for input, but will not block.
It will monitor input from the GGZmod socket.
It will monitor input from player sockets only if a handler is registered for the PLAYER_DATA event.
It will call an event handler as necessary.

Parameters:

ggzmod The ggzmod object.

Returns:

-1 on error, the number of events handled (0-1) on success.

 

void ggzmod_free (GGZMod * ggzmod)
