dictSearch man page

dictSearch — search for value in dictionary.


#include <util/dict.h>
void *dictSearch(dictCtx dict, const char *id, void **plock);


dict - dictionary to search in.
id - identifier of item to find.
plock - place for value lock (or NULL).


Searches for <id> in <dict>, and returns value if found, or NULL if not. If <plock> is non-NULL, then the lock returned in <plock> will be associated with the returned value. Until this lock is passed to dictReleaseLock(), the value will not be passed to the dictCleanupFunc callback (see dictCleanup()).

MT-Level: Safe if <dict> thread-safe.

Return Value

plock - set to value lock.
