NAME

zmq_msg_init_data - initialise 0MQ message from a supplied buffer  

SYNOPSIS

typedef void (zmq_free_fn) (void *data, void *hint);

int zmq_msg_init_data (zmq_msg_t *msg, void *data, size_t size, zmq_free_fn *ffn, void *hint);  

DESCRIPTION

The zmq_msg_init_data() function shall initialise the message object referenced by msg to represent the content referenced by the buffer located at address data, size bytes long. No copy of data shall be performed and 0MQ shall take ownership of the supplied buffer.

If provided, the deallocation function ffn shall be called once the data buffer is no longer required by 0MQ, with the data and hint arguments supplied to zmq_msg_init_data().


Caution

Never access zmq_msg_t members directly, instead always use the zmq_msg family of functions.


Caution

The functions zmq_msg_init(), zmq_msg_init_data() and zmq_msg_init_size() are mutually exclusive. Never initialize the same zmq_msg_t twice.

 

RETURN VALUE

The zmq_msg_init_data() function shall return zero if successful. Otherwise it shall return -1 and set errno to one of the values defined below.  

ERRORS

No errors are defined.  

EXAMPLE

Initialising a message from a supplied buffer.

void my_free (void *data, void *hint)
{
    free (data);
}

    /*  ...  */

void *data = malloc (6);
assert (data);
memcpy (data, "ABCDEF", 6);
zmq_msg_t msg;
rc = zmq_msg_init_data (&msg, data, 6, my_free, NULL);
assert (rc == 0);
