Detailed Description

Interface for user specific layout format of log4c_logging_event events.

Todo

the layout interface needs a better configuration system depending on the layout type. The udata field is a just a trick.

Todo

a pattern layout would be welcomed !!

Macro Definition Documentation

#define log4c_layout_type_define(a_type)

Helper macro to define static layout types.

Parameters:

a_type the log4c_layout_type_t object to define

Warning:

needs GCC support: otherwise this macro does nothing

Deprecated

This macro, and the static initialialization of layouts in general, is deprecated. Use rather the log4c_layout_type_set() function to initialize your appenders before calling log4c_init()

Function Documentation

void log4c_layout_delete (log4c_layout_t * a_layout)

Destructor for layout.

const char* log4c_layout_format (const log4c_layout_t * a_layout, const log4c_logging_event_t * a_event)

format a log4c_logging_event events to a string.

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
a_event a logging_event_t object

Returns:

an appendable string.

log4c_layout_t* log4c_layout_get (const char * a_name)

Get a pointer to an existing layout.

Parameters:

a_name the name of the layout to return.

Returns:

a pointer to an existing layout, or NULL if no layout with the specfied name exists.

References log4c_layout_delete(), log4c_layout_new(), and log4c_layout_print().

const char* log4c_layout_get_name (const log4c_layout_t * a_layout)

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object

Returns:

the layout name

const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_get_type (const log4c_layout_t * a_layout)

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object

Returns:

a log4c_layout_type_t object

void* log4c_layout_get_udata (const log4c_layout_t * a_layout)

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object

Returns:

the layout user data

log4c_layout_t* log4c_layout_new (const char * a_name)

Constructor for layout.

void log4c_layout_print (const log4c_layout_t * a_layout, FILE * a_stream)

prints the layout on a stream

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
a_stream the stream

const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_set_type (log4c_layout_t * a_layout, const log4c_layout_type_t * a_type)

sets the layout type

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
a_type the new layout type

Returns:

the previous layout type

void* log4c_layout_set_udata (log4c_layout_t * a_layout, void * a_udata)

sets the layout user data

Parameters:

a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
a_udata the new layout user data

Returns:

the previous layout user data

const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_type_get (const char * a_name)

Get a pointer to an existing layout type.

Parameters:

a_name the name of the layout type to return.

Returns:

a pointer to an existing layout type, or NULL if no layout type with the specified name exists.

const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_type_set (const log4c_layout_type_t * a_type)

Use this function to register a layout type with log4c. Once this is done you may refer to this type by name both programatically and in the log4c configuration file.

Parameters:

a_type a pointer to the new layout type to set.

Returns:

a pointer to the previous layout type of same name.

Example code fragment:

const log4c_layout_type_t log4c_layout_type_xml = {
   "s13_xml",
   xml_format,
};
 
log4c_layout_type_set(&log4c_layout_type_xml);

void log4c_layout_types_free (void)

free all layout types

void log4c_layout_types_print (FILE * fp)

prints all the current registered layout types on a stream

Parameters:

fp the stream
