mongoc_collection_copy — mongoc_collection_copy()

Synopsis

mongoc_collection_t *
mongoc_collection_copy (mongoc_collection_t *collection);

Parameters

  • collection: A mongoc_collection_t.

Description

Performs a deep copy of the collection struct and its configuration. Useful if you intend to call mongoc_collection_set_write_concern, mongoc_collection_set_read_prefs, or mongoc_collection_set_read_concern, and want to preserve an unaltered copy of the struct.

This function does not copy the contents of the collection on the MongoDB server; use the cloneCollection command for that purpose.

Returns

A newly allocated mongoc_collection_t that should be freed with mongoc_collection_destroy() when no longer in use.
