DESCRIPTION

       ldns_buffer
              implementation of buffers to ease operations

              ldns_buffers can contain arbitrary information, per octet. You can write
              to the current end of a buffer, read from the current position, and
              access any data within it.

              Example use of buffers is in the source code of \ref host2str.c
              struct ldns_struct_buffer
              {
                   The current position used for reading/writing:
                   size_t   _position;

                   The read/write limit:
                   size_t   _limit;

                   The amount of data the buffer can contain:
                   size_t   _capacity;

                   The data contained in the buffer:
                   uint8_t *_data;

                   If the buffer is fixed it cannot be resized:
                   unsigned _fixed : 1;

                   /** The current state of the buffer. If writing to the buffer fails
                    * for any reason, this value is changed. This way, you can perform
                    * multiple writes in sequence and check for success afterwards. */
                   ldns_status _status;
              };
              typedef struct ldns_struct_buffer ldns_buffer;

       ldns_buffer_new() creates a new buffer with the specified capacity.

              capacity: the size (in bytes) to allocate for the buffer
              Returns the created buffer

       ldns_buffer_new_frm_data() creates a buffer with the specified data.  The data IS copied
              and MEMORY allocations are done.  The buffer is not fixed and can be resized using
              buffer_reserve().

              buffer: pointer to the buffer to put the data in
              data: the data to encapsulate in the buffer
              size: the size of the data

       ldns_buffer_clear() clears the buffer and make it ready for writing.  The buffer's limit
              is set to the capacity and the position is set to 0.
              buffer: the buffer to clear

       ldns_buffer_printf() prints to the buffer, increasing the capacity if required using
              buffer_reserve(). The buffer's position is set to the terminating '\\0' Returns the
              number of characters written (not including the terminating '\\0') or -1 on
              failure.

       ldns_buffer_free() frees the buffer.
              *buffer: the buffer to be freed
              Returns void

       ldns_buffer_copy() Copy contents of the from buffer to the result buffer and then flips
              the result buffer. Data will be silently truncated if the result buffer is too
              small.
              *result: resulting buffer which is copied to.
              *from: what to copy to result.

       ldns_buffer_export() Makes the buffer fixed and returns a pointer to the data.  The caller
              is responsible for free'ing the result.
              *buffer: the buffer to be exported
              Returns void

       ldns_buffer_export2str() Exports and returns the data in the buffer as a null terminated
              char * string. The returned string must be freed by the caller.  The buffer must be
              in write modus and may thus not have been flipped.  The buffer is fixed after this
              function returns.

              buffer: buffer containing char * data
              Returns null terminated char * data, or NULL on error

       ldns_buffer2str() Returns a copy of the data in the buffer as a null terminated char *
              string. The returned string must be freed by the caller.  The buffer must be in
              write modus and may thus not have been flipped.

              buffer: buffer containing char * data
              Returns null terminated char * data, or NULL on error
