       gd_raw_filename — retrieve the pathname of a binary file in a Dirfile


       #include <getdata.h>

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


       The  gd_raw_filename()  function  reports  the  pathname of the file backing the RAW field
       specified by field_code in the dirfile specified by dirfile.   If  field_code  contains  a
       valid representation suffix, it will be ignored.


       On success, gd_raw_filename() returns the full pathname of the binary file 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:

               The library was unable to allocate memory.

               The field specified by field_code was not found.

               The supplied dirfile was invalid.

               The field specified by field_code was not a RAW field.

               The  encoding  scheme  of  the  specified field could not be determined or was not
               understood by GetData.

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


       The get_raw_filename() function appeared in  GetData-0.4.2.   Memory  for  the  string  it
       returned was managed by GetData.

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

       In GetData-0.8.0, the returned string changed to a malloc'd buffer, and the responsibility
       for freeing the buffer passed to the caller.
