NAME

tdb_store - store a record in a tdb database.  

SYNOPSIS

#include <tdb.h>

int tdb_store(TDB_CONTEXT *tdb, TDB_DATA key, TDB_DATA record, int flag);

 

DESCRIPTION

Store a lump of data pointed to by record in the tdb database under the index pointed to by key. The TDB_DATA structure used by both key and record is defined as:

typedef struct {
        char *dptr;
        size_t dsize;
} TDB_DATA;

The flag determines the way that tdb_store behaves and can be any one of the following values.

TDB_REPLACE
Insert a record creating a new one or overwriting an existing one.
TDB_INSERT
Insert a new entry but refuse to overwrite an existing entry.
TDB_MODIFY
Replace an existing record with a new one. This will fail if, a record does not already exist.

 

RETURN VALUE

A return value of 0 indicates success and -1 indicates failure.
