DESCRIPTION


The scf_value_create() function creates a new, reset scf_value_t that
holds a single typed value. The value can be used only with the handle
specified by h and objects associated with h.


The scf_value_reset() function resets the value to the uninitialized
state. The scf_value_destroy() function deallocates the object.


The scf_value_type() function retrieves the type of the contents of v.
The scf_value_is_type() function determines if a value is of a particular
type or any of its subtypes. The scf_type_base_type() function returns
the base type of type. The scf_value_base_type() function returns the
true base type of the value (the highest type reachable from the value's
type).


Type Identifier Base Type Type Description
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCF_TYPE_INVALID reserved invalid type
SCF_TYPE_BOOLEAN single bit
SCF_TYPE_COUNT unsigned 64-bit quantity
SCF_TYPE_INTEGER signed 64-bit quantity
SCF_TYPE_TIME signed 64-bit seconds, signed 32-bit
nanoseconds in the range 0 <= ns <
1,000,000,000
SCF_TYPE_ASTRING 8-bit NUL-terminated string
SCF_TYPE_OPAQUE opaque 8-bit data
SCF_TYPE_USTRING ASTRING 8-bit UTF-8 string
SCF_TYPE_URI USTRING a URI string
SCF_TYPE_FMRI URI a Fault Management Resource Identifier
SCF_TYPE_HOST USTRING either a hostname, IPv4 address, or
IPv6 address
SCF_TYPE_HOSTNAME HOST a fully-qualified domain name
SCF_TYPE_NET_ADDR_V4 HOST a dotted-quad IPv4 address with
optional network portion
SCF_TYPE_NET_ADDR_V6 HOST legal IPv6 address


The scf_value_get_boolean(), scf_value_get_count(),
scf_value_get_integer(), scf_value_get_time(), scf_value_get_astring(),
scf_value_get_ustring(), and scf_value_get_opaque() functions read a
particular type of value from v.


The scf_value_get_as_string() and scf_value_get_as_string_typed()
functions convert the value to a string form. For
scf_value_get_as_string_typed(), the value must be a reachable subtype of
type.


The scf_value_set_boolean(), scf_value_set_count(),
scf_value_set_integer(), scf_value_set_time(), scf_value_set_astring(),
scf_value_set_ustring(), and scf_value_set_opaque() functions set v to a
particular value of a particular type.


The scf_value_set_from_string() function is the inverse of
scf_value_get_as_string(). It sets v to the value encoded in buf of type
type.


The scf_value_set_*() functions will succeed on scf_value_t objects that
have already been set.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, scf_value_create() returns a new, reset
scf_value_t. Otherwise, it returns NULL.


Upon successful completion, scf_value_handle() returns the handle
associated with v. Otherwise, it returns NULL.


The scf_value_base_type() function returns the base type of the value, or
SCF_TYPE_INVALID on failure.


Upon successful completion, scf_value_type() returns the type of the
value. Otherwise, it returns SCF_TYPE_INVALID.


Upon successful completion, scf_value_is_type(), scf_value_get_boolean(),
scf_value_get_count(), scf_value_get_integer(), scf_value_get_time(),
scf_value_set_time(), scf_value_set_from_string(),
scf_value_set_astring(), scf_value_set_ustring(), and
scf_value_set_opaque() return 0. Otherwise, they return -1.


Upon successful completion, scf_value_get_astring(),
scf_value_get_ustring(), scf_value_get_as_string(), and
scf_value_get_as_string_typed() return the length of the source string,
not including the terminating null byte. Otherwise, they return -1.


Upon successful completion, scf_value_get_opaque() returns the number of
bytes written. Otherwise, it returns -1.

ERRORS


The scf_value_create() function will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_HANDLE_DESTROYED
The handle associated with h has been
destroyed.


SCF_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
The handle is NULL.


SCF_ERROR_NO_MEMORY
There is not enough memory to allocate an
scf_value_t.


The scf_value_handle() function will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_HANDLE_DESTROYED
The handle associated with v has been
destroyed.


The scf_value_set_time() function will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
The nanoseconds field is not in the range 0
<= ns < 1,000,000,000.


The scf_type_base_type() function will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
The type argument is not a valid type.


The scf_value_set_astring(), scf_value_set_ustring(),
scf_value_set_opaque(), and scf_value_set_from_string() functions will
fail if:

SCF_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
The in argument is not a valid value for
the specified type or is longer than the
maximum supported value length.


The scf_type_base_type(), scf_value_is_type(), and
scf_value_get_as_string_typed() functions will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
The type argument is not a valid type.


The scf_value_type(), scf_value_base_type(), scf_value_get_boolean(),
scf_value_get_count(), scf_value_get_integer(), scf_value_get_time(),
scf_value_get_astring(), scf_value_get_ustring(),
scf_value_get_as_string(), andscf_value_get_as_string_typed() functions
will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_NOT_SET
The v argument has not been set to a value.


The scf_value_get_boolean(), scf_value_get_count(),
scf_value_get_integer(), scf_value_get_time(), scf_value_get_astring(),
scf_value_get_ustring(), and scf_value_get_as_string_typed() functions
will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_TYPE_MISMATCH
The requested type is not the same as the
value's type and is not in the base-type
chain.


The scf_error(3SCF) function can be used to retrieve the error value.
