Detailed Description

Function Documentation

__extern caca_file_t* caca_file_open (char const * path, const char * mode)

Create a caca file handle for a file. If the file is zipped, it is decompressed on the fly.

If an error occurs, NULL is returned and errno is set accordingly:

  • ENOSTS Function not implemented.
  • EINVAL File not found or permission denied.
Parameters

path The file path
mode The file open mode

Returns

A file handle to path.

__extern int caca_file_close (caca_file_t * fp)

Close and destroy the resources associated with a caca file handle.

This function is a wrapper for fclose() or, if available, gzclose().

Parameters

fp The file handle

Returns

The return value of fclose() or gzclose().

__extern uint64_t caca_file_tell (caca_file_t * fp)

Return the file handle position, in bytes.

Parameters

fp The file handle

Returns

The current offset in the file handle.

__extern size_t caca_file_read (caca_file_t * fp, void * ptr, size_t size)

Read data from a file handle and copy them into the given buffer.

Parameters

fp The file handle
ptr The destination buffer
size The number of bytes to read

Returns

The number of bytes read

__extern size_t caca_file_write (caca_file_t * fp, const void * ptr, size_t size)

Write the contents of the given buffer to the file handle.

Parameters

fp The file handle
ptr The source buffer
size The number of bytes to write

Returns

The number of bytes written

__extern char* caca_file_gets (caca_file_t * fp, char * s, int size)

Read one line of data from a file handle, up to one less than the given number of bytes. A trailing zero is appended to the data.

Parameters

fp The file handle
s The destination buffer
size The maximum number of bytes to read

Returns

The number of bytes read, including the trailing zero

__extern int caca_file_eof (caca_file_t * fp)

Return the end-of-file status of the file handle.

This function is a wrapper for feof() or, if available, gzeof().

Parameters

fp The file handle

Returns

1 if EOF was reached, 0 otherwise
