7 * strbuf's are meant to be used with all the usual C string and memory
8 * APIs. Given that the length of the buffer is known, it's often better to
9 * use the mem* functions than a str* one (memchr vs. strchr e.g.).
10 * Though, one has to be careful about the fact that str* functions often
11 * stop on NULs and that strbufs may have embedded NULs.
13 * A strbuf is NUL terminated for convenience, but no function in the
14 * strbuf API actually relies on the string being free of NULs.
16 * strbufs have some invariants that are very important to keep in mind:
18 * - The `buf` member is never NULL, so it can be used in any usual C
19 * string operations safely. strbuf's _have_ to be initialized either by
20 * `strbuf_init()` or by `= STRBUF_INIT` before the invariants, though.
22 * Do *not* assume anything on what `buf` really is (e.g. if it is
23 * allocated memory or not), use `strbuf_detach()` to unwrap a memory
24 * buffer from its strbuf shell in a safe way. That is the sole supported
25 * way. This will give you a malloced buffer that you can later `free()`.
27 * However, it is totally safe to modify anything in the string pointed by
28 * the `buf` member, between the indices `0` and `len-1` (inclusive).
30 * - The `buf` member is a byte array that has at least `len + 1` bytes
31 * allocated. The extra byte is used to store a `'\0'`, allowing the
32 * `buf` member to be a valid C-string. Every strbuf function ensure this
33 * invariant is preserved.
35 * NOTE: It is OK to "play" with the buffer directly if you work it this
36 * way:
38 * strbuf_grow(sb, SOME_SIZE); <1>
39 * strbuf_setlen(sb, sb->len + SOME_OTHER_SIZE);
41 * <1> Here, the memory array starting at `sb->buf`, and of length
42 * `strbuf_avail(sb)` is all yours, and you can be sure that
43 * `strbuf_avail(sb)` is at least `SOME_SIZE`.
45 * NOTE: `SOME_OTHER_SIZE` must be smaller or equal to `strbuf_avail(sb)`.
47 * Doing so is safe, though if it has to be done in many places, adding the
48 * missing API to the strbuf module is the way to go.
50 * WARNING: Do _not_ assume that the area that is yours is of size `alloc
51 * - 1` even if it's true in the current implementation. Alloc is somehow a
52 * "private" member that should not be messed with. Use `strbuf_avail()`
53 * instead.

273 * Add a NUL-terminated string to the buffer.

281 static inline void strbuf_addstr(struct strbuf *sb, const char *s)

287 * Copy the contents of another buffer at the end of the current one.
289 void strbuf_addbuf(struct strbuf *sb, const struct strbuf *sb2);
292 * This function can be used to expand a format string containing
293 * placeholders. To that end, it parses the string and calls the specified
294 * function for every percent sign found.
296 * The callback function is given a pointer to the character after the `%`
297 * and a pointer to the struct strbuf. It is expected to add the expanded
298 * version of the placeholder to the strbuf, e.g. to add a newline
299 * character if the letter `n` appears after a `%`. The function returns
300 * the length of the placeholder recognized and `strbuf_expand()` skips
301 * over it.
303 * The format `%%` is automatically expanded to a single `%` as a quoting
304 * mechanism; callers do not need to handle the `%` placeholder themselves,
305 * and the callback function will not be invoked for this placeholder.
307 * All other characters (non-percent and not skipped ones) are copied
308 * verbatim to the strbuf. If the callback returned zero, meaning that the
309 * placeholder is unknown, then the percent sign is copied, too.
311 * In order to facilitate caching and to make it possible to give
312 * parameters to the callback, `strbuf_expand()` passes a context pointer,
313 * which can be used by the programmer of the callback as she sees fit.
