NAME

zip_source_function - create data source from function  

LIBRARY

libzip (-lzip)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <zip.h>

struct zip_source * zip_source_function(struct zip *archive, zip_source_callback fn, void *userdata);  

DESCRIPTION

The function zip_source_function creates a zip source from the user-provided function fn, which must be of the following type:
typedef ssize_t (*zip_source_callback)(void *state,
    void *data, size_t len, enum zip_source_cmd cmd);

When called by the library, the first argument is the userdata argument supplied to zip_source_function. The next two arguments are a buffer data of size len when data is expected to be returned, or else NULL and 0. The last argument, cmd, specifies which action the function should perform:

ZIP_SOURCE_OPEN
Prepare for reading. Return 0 on success, -1 on error.
ZIP_SOURCE_READ
Read data into the buffer data of size len. Return the number of bytes placed into data on success, -1 on error.
ZIP_SOURCE_CLOSE
Reading is done.
ZIP_SOURCE_STAT
Get meta information for the input data. data points to a struct zip_stat, which should be filled in. (See zip_stat_init(3). ) Usually, for uncompressed data, after zip_stat_init(3), only the mtime and size struct members will need to be set. Return sizeof(struct zip_stat) on success, -1 on error.
ZIP_SOURCE_ERROR
Get error information. data points to an array of two ints, which should be filled with the libzip error code and the corresponding system error code for the error that occurred. See zip_errors(3) for details on the error codes. Return return(2 * sizeof(int)).
ZIP_SOURCE_FREE
Clean up and free all resources. Return 0.

The library will always issue ZIP_SOURCE_OPEN before issuing ZIP_SOURCE_READ. When it no longer wishes to read from this source, it will issue ZIP_SOURCE_CLOSE. If the library wishes to read the data again, it will issue ZIP_SOURCE_OPEN a second time. If the function is unable to provide the data again, it should return -1.

ZIP_SOURCE_STAT can be issued at any time. ZIP_SOURCE_ERROR will only be issued in response to the function returning -1. ZIP_SOURCE_FREE will be the last command issued.  

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, the created source is returned. Otherwise, NULL is returned and the error code in archive is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

zip_source_function fails if:
[ZIP_ER_MEMORY]
Required memory could not be allocated.
