NAME

       bson_iter_init - bson_iter_init()

SYNOPSIS

          bool
          bson_iter_init (bson_iter_t *iter, const bson_t *bson);

PARAMETERS

       · iter: A bson_iter_t.

       · bson: A bson_t.

DESCRIPTION

       The  bson_iter_init()  function  shall  initialize  iter to iterate upon the BSON document
       bson. Upon initialization, iter is placed before the  first  element.  Callers  must  call
       bson_iter_next(), bson_iter_find(), or bson_iter_find_case() to advance to an element.

RETURNS

       Returns true if the iter was successfully initialized.

EXAMPLE

          static void
          print_doc_id (const bson_t *doc)
          {
             bson_iter_t iter;
             bson_oid_t oid;
             char oidstr[25];

             if (bson_iter_init (&iter, doc) && bson_iter_find (&iter, "_id") &&
                 BSON_ITER_HOLDS_OID (&iter)) {
                bson_iter_oid (&iter, &oid);
                bson_oid_to_string (&oid, oidstr);
                printf ("%s\n", oidstr);
             } else {
                printf ("Document is missing _id.\n");
             }
          }

          /* alternatively */

          static void
          print_doc_id (const bson_t *doc)
          {
             bson_iter_t iter;
             bson_oid_t oid;
             char oidstr[25];

             if (bson_iter_init_find (&iter, doc, "_id") && BSON_ITER_HOLDS_OID (&iter)) {
                bson_iter_oid (&iter, &oid);
                bson_oid_to_string (&oid, oidstr);
                printf ("%s\n", oidstr);
             } else {
                printf ("Document is missing _id.\n");
             }
          }
