Reading Vectors.
These members correspond to the above members, but take an additional integer argument, i, which is a vector index.

This is equivalent to getting a value for a keyword named '<i>key</i>:<i>i</i>'. The routines that do not take key arguments get the value for the keyword named '<i>i</i>'.

Detailed Description

The KeyVal class is designed to simplify the process of allowing a user to specify keyword/value associations to a C++ program.

A flexible input style and ease of use for the programmer is achieved with this method. Keywords are represented by null terminated character arrays. The keywords are organized hierarchially, in a manner similar to the way that many file systems are organized. One character is special, ':', which is used to separate the various hierarchial labels, which are referred to as 'segments', in the keyword.

A convention for specifying arrays is provided by KeyVal. Each index of the array is given by appending a segment containing the character representation of the index. Thus, 'array:3:4' would be a the keyword corresponding to fourth row and fifth column of 'array', since indexing starts at zero.

To allow the KeyVal class to have associations that can represent data for classes, the keyword can be associated with a class as well as a value. This permits polymorphic data to be unambiguously represented by keyword/value associations. Most use of KeyVal need not be concerned with this.

Member Function Documentation

int sc::KeyVal::count (const char * = 0)

If the value of a keyword is an array, then return its length. If no arguments are given then the top level will be checked to see if it is an array and, if so, the number of elements will be counted.

int sc::KeyVal::exists (const char *)

This takes as its only argument a keyword. Returns 1 if the keyword has a value and 0 otherwise.

virtual int sc::KeyVal::have_unseen () [virtual]

Return 1 if there were unseen keywords, 0 if there are none, or -1 this keyval doesn't keep track of unseen keywords.

Reimplemented in sc::ParsedKeyVal.

char* sc::KeyVal::pcharvalue (const char * key = 0, const KeyValValue & def = KeyValValuepchar())

Returns a copy of the string representation of the key's value. Storage for the copy is obtained with new.

std::string sc::KeyVal::stringvalue (const char * key = 0, const KeyValValue & def = KeyValValuestring())

Returns a string representation of the key's value.
