DI_PATH_PROP_BYTES(3DEVINFO) Device Information Library Functions


NAME


di_path_prop_bytes, di_path_prop_ints, di_path_prop_int64s,
di_path_prop_name, di_path_prop_strings, di_path_prop_type - access path
property information

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -ldevinfo [ library... ]
#include <libdevinfo.h>

char *di_path_prop_bytes(di_path_prop_t prop);


int (di_path_prop_t prop);


int (di_path_prop_t prop, uchar_t **prop_data);


int (di_path_prop_t prop, int **prop_data);


int (di_path_prop_t prop, int64_t **prop_data);


int di_path_prop_type(di_path_prop_t prop, char **prop_data);


PARAMETERS


prop
A handle to a property returned by
di_path_prop_next(3DEVINFO).


prop_data
For di_path_prop_bytes(), the address of a pointer to an
unsigned character.

For di_path_prop_ints(), the address of a pointer to an
integer.

For di_path_prop_int64(), the address of a pointer to a
64-bit integer.

For di_path_prop_strings(), the address of pointer to a
character.


DESCRIPTION


These functions access information associated with path property values
and attributes such as the property name or data type.


The di_path_prop_name() function returns a pointer to a string containing
the name of the property.


The di_path_prop_type() function returns the type of the path property.
The type determines the appropriate interface to access property values.
Possible property types are the same as for di_prop_type(3DEVINFO),
excluding DI_PROP_TYPE_UNKNOWN and DI_PROP_UNDEFINED. Thus,
di_path_prop_type() can return one of the following constants:

DI_PROP_TYPE_INT
Use di_path_prop_ints() to access property data.


DI_PROP_TYPE_INT64
Use di_path_prop_int64s() to access property data.


DI_PROP_TYPE_STRING
Use di_path_prop_strings() to access property
data.


DI_PROP_TYPE_BYTE
Use di_path_prop_bytes() to access property data.


The di_path_prop_bytes() function returns the property data as a series
of unsigned characters.


The di_path_prop_ints() function returns the property data as a series of
integers.


The di_path_prop_int64s() function returns the property data as a series
of integers.


The di_path_prop_strings() function returns the property data as a
concatenation of null-terminated strings.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, di_path_prop_bytes(), di_path_prop_ints(),
di_path_prop_int64s(), and di_path_prop_strings() return a non-negative
value, indicating the number of entries in the property value buffer. If
the property is found, the number of entries in prop_data is returned.
Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.


For di_path_prop_bytes(), the number of entries is the number of unsigned
characters contained in the buffer pointed to by prop_data.


For di_path_prop_ints(), the number of entries is the number of integers
contained in the buffer pointed to by prop_data.


For di_path_prop_ints(), the number of entries is the number of 64-bit
integers contained in the buffer pointed to by prop_data.


For di_path_prop_strings(), the number of entries is the number of null-
terminated strings contained in the buffer. The strings are stored in a
concatenated format in the buffer.


The di_path_prop_name() function returns the name of the property.


The di_path_prop_type() function can return one of types described in the
Description.

ERRORS


These functions will fail if:

EINVAL
One of the arguments is invalid. For example, the property
type does not match the interface.


ENOTSUP
The snapshot contains no property information.


ENXIO
The path property does not exist.
