NAME

       bson_new_from_buffer - bson_new_from_buffer()

SYNOPSIS

          bson_t *
          bson_new_from_buffer (uint8_t **buf,
                                size_t *buf_len,
                                bson_realloc_func realloc_func,
                                void *realloc_func_ctx);

PARAMETERS

       · buf: An out-pointer to a buffer containing a serialized BSON document, or to NULL.

       · buf_len: An out-pointer to the length of the buffer in bytes.

       · realloc_func: Optional bson_realloc_func for reallocating the buffer.

       · realloc_func_ctx: Optional pointer that will be passed as ctx to realloc_func.

DESCRIPTION

       Creates a new bson_t using the data provided.

       The  realloc_func, if provided, is called to resize buf if the document is later expanded,
       for example by a call to one of the bson_append functions.

       If *buf is initially NULL  then  it  is  allocated,  using  realloc_func  or  the  default
       allocator, and initialized with an empty BSON document, and *buf_len is set to 5, the size
       of an empty document.

RETURNS

       A newly-allocated bson_t on success, or NULL.
