NAME

       gd_free_entry_strings — free strings in a GetData gd_entry_t object

SYNOPSIS

       #include <getdata.h>

       gd_entry_t *gd_free_entry_strings(gd_entry_t *entry);

DESCRIPTION

       The  gd_free_entry_strings()  function frees the character strings found in the gd_entry_t
       object entry which were previously allocated by a call to gd_entry(3).   After  freeing  a
       string,  the  associated  pointer  is  set  to NULL.  If entry is NULL, this function does
       nothing.

       If non-NULL, entry must point to a valid and properly initialised gd_entry_t object,  such
       as  that  returned by gd_entry(3).  By default, strings are deallocated by calling free(3)
       on each, but a different memory manager may  be  specified  by  calling  gd_alloc_funcs(3)
       before calling this function.

       See gd_entry(3) for a description of the gd_entry_t data type.

RETURN VALUE

       The function gd_free_entry_strings() always returns its input, entry.

NOTES

       This function is provided as a convenience only.  The caller may deallocate the strings in
       the gd_entry_t object provided by gd_entry(3) itself simply by calling the deallocator  on
       the each initialised string member, if they prefer to do so.

HISTORY

       The dirfile_free_entry_strings() function appeared in GetData-0.3.0.

       In GetData-0.7.0, this function was renamed to gd_free_entry_strings().
