Synopsis

#include <rc.h>

RC_STRINGLIST *
rc_config_list(const char *file);

RC_STRINGLIST *
rc_config_load(const char *file);

char *
rc_config_value(const char *const *list, const char *entry);

bool
rc_yesno(const char *value);

Description

These functions provide an easy means of querying OpenRC configuration files.

rc_config_list() returns a list of non comment lines in file. rc_config_load() does the same, but attempts to parse the line as if it was a shell assignment. rc_config_value() returns the value of entry found in list.

Each list should be freed using rc_stringlist_free() when done.

rc_yesno() returns if value is true, yes, on or 1 regardless of case, otherwise false. If value is also not false, no, off or 0 regardless of case then errno is set to EINVAL.
