NAME

       gd_linterp_tablename — retrieve the pathname of a look-up table in a Dirfile

SYNOPSIS

       #include <getdata.h>

       char *gd_linterp_tablename(DIRFILE *dirfile, const char *field_code);

DESCRIPTION

       The gd_linterp_tablename() function retrieves the pathname of the look-up table (LUT) used
       by the LINTERP field specified by field_code in the  dirfile  specified  by  dirfile.   If
       field_code contains a valid representation suffix, it will be ignored.

       Note:  this function returns a fully canonicalised, absolute path.  The value of the table
       member in a gd_entry_t object (see gd_entry(3)) is the path which appears  in  the  format
       specification on disk, which may be a path relative to the fragment directory.

RETURN VALUE

       On  success,  gd_linterp_tablename()  returns the full pathname of the LUT associated with
       the specified field in a newly-allocated buffer.  By default,  this  buffer  is  allocated
       with   malloc(3),   but   a   different   memory  manager  may  be  specified  by  calling
       gd_alloc_funcs(3)  before  calling  this  function.   The  caller   is   responsible   for
       deallocating the returned buffer.

       On  error,  this  function  returns  NULL  and  stores a negative-valued error code in the
       DIRFILE object which may be retrieved by a subsequent call to gd_error(3).  Possible error
       codes are:

       GD_E_ALLOC
               The library was unable to allocate memory.

       GD_E_BAD_CODE
               The field specified by field_code was not found.

       GD_E_BAD_DIRFILE
               The supplied dirfile was invalid.

       GD_E_BAD_FIELD_TYPE
               The field specified by field_code was not a LINTERP field.

       A descriptive error string for the error may be obtained by calling gd_error_string(3).

HISTORY

       The gd_linterp_tablename() function appeared in GetData-0.8.1.
