Detailed Description

       Interface for user specific layout format of log4c_logging_event events.

       Todo
           the layout interface needs a better configuration system depending on the layout type.
           The udata field is a just a trick.

       Todo
           a pattern layout would be welcomed !!

Macro Definition Documentation

   #define log4c_layout_type_define(a_type)
       Helper macro to define static layout types.

       Parameters:
           a_type the log4c_layout_type_t object to define

       Warning:
           needs GCC support: otherwise this macro does nothing

       Deprecated
           This macro, and the static initialialization of layouts in general, is deprecated. Use
           rather the log4c_layout_type_set() function to initialize your appenders before
           calling log4c_init()

Typedef Documentation

   typedef struct __log4c_layout log4c_layout_t

Function Documentation

   void log4c_layout_delete (log4c_layout_t * a_layout)
       Destructor for layout.
   const char* log4c_layout_format (const log4c_layout_t * a_layout, const log4c_logging_event_t
       * a_event)
       format a log4c_logging_event events to a string.
       Parameters:

           a_event a logging_event_t object
       Returns:
           an appendable string.
   log4c_layout_t* log4c_layout_get (const char * a_name)
       Get a pointer to an existing layout.
       Parameters:
           a_name the name of the layout to return.
       Returns:
           a pointer to an existing layout, or NULL if no layout with the specfied name exists.
       References log4c_layout_delete(), log4c_layout_new(), and log4c_layout_print().

       Parameters:
           a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
           a_stream the stream
   const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_set_type (log4c_layout_t * a_layout, const
       log4c_layout_type_t * a_type)
       sets the layout type
       Parameters:
           a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
           a_type the new layout type
       Returns:
           the previous layout type
   void* log4c_layout_set_udata (log4c_layout_t * a_layout, void * a_udata)
       sets the layout user data
       Parameters:
           a_layout the log4c_layout_t object
           a_udata the new layout user data
       Returns:
           the previous layout user data
   const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_type_get (const char * a_name)
       Get a pointer to an existing layout type.
       Parameters:
           a_name the name of the layout type to return.
       Returns:
           a pointer to an existing layout type, or NULL if no layout type with the specified
           name exists.
   const log4c_layout_type_t* log4c_layout_type_set (const log4c_layout_type_t * a_type)
       Use this function to register a layout type with log4c. Once this is done you may refer to
       this type by name both programatically and in the log4c configuration file.
       Parameters:
           a_type a pointer to the new layout type to set.
       Returns:
           a pointer to the previous layout type of same name.
       Example code fragment:
       const log4c_layout_type_t log4c_layout_type_xml = {
          "s13_xml",
          xml_format,
       };

       log4c_layout_type_set(&log4c_layout_type_xml);

   void log4c_layout_types_free (void)
       free all layout types
   void log4c_layout_types_print (FILE * fp)
       prints all the current registered layout types on a stream
       Parameters:
           fp the stream
