Detailed Description

Various libalpm functions.

Typedef Documentation

typedef int64_t alpm_time_t

The time type used by libalpm. Represents a unix time stamp

Enumeration Type Documentation

enum alpm_caps

Enum of possible compile time features.

Enumerator

ALPM_CAPABILITY_NLS

localization

ALPM_CAPABILITY_DOWNLOADER

Ability to download.

ALPM_CAPABILITY_SIGNATURES

Signature checking.

Function Documentation

int alpm_capabilities (void)

Get the capabilities of the library.

Returns

a bitmask of the capabilities

char * alpm_compute_md5sum (const char * filename)

Get the md5 sum of file.

Parameters

filename name of the file

Returns

the checksum on success, NULL on error

char * alpm_compute_sha256sum (const char * filename)

Get the sha256 sum of file.

Parameters

filename name of the file

Returns

the checksum on success, NULL on error

alpm_pkg_t * alpm_sync_get_new_version (alpm_pkg_t * pkg, alpm_list_t * dbs_sync)

Check for new version of pkg in syncdbs. If the same package appears multiple dbs only the first will be checked

This only checks the syncdb for a newer version. It does not access the network at all. See alpm_db_update to update a database.

int alpm_unlock (alpm_handle_t * handle)

Remove the database lock file.

Parameters

handle the context handle

Returns

0 on success, -1 on error

Note

Safe to call from inside signal handlers.

const char * alpm_version (void)

Get the version of library.

Returns

the library version, e.g. '6.0.4'
