Detailed Description

       A bunch of macros to minimize the amount of platform-specific ifdefs needed throughout the
       rest of the code. When the features this library needs are similar enough to POSIX to be
       hidden in a one-or-two line replacement, this macro approach is used.

Macro Definition Documentation

   #define MDB_DEVEL   0
       Features under development

   #define mdb_func_   '<mdb_unknown>'
       Wrapper around func, which is a C99 feature

   #define MDB_USE_ROBUST   1
       Some platforms define the EOWNERDEAD error code even though they don't support Robust
       Mutexes. Compile with -DMDB_USE_ROBUST=0, or use some other mechanism like
       -DMDB_USE_POSIX_SEM instead of -DMDB_USE_POSIX_MUTEX. (Posix semaphores are not robust.)

   #define Z   'z'
       printf format modifier for size_t

   #define MDB_PIDLOCK   1
       For MDB_LOCK_FORMAT: True if readers take a pid lock in the lockfile

   #define LOCK_MUTEX0(mutex)   pthread_mutex_lock(mutex)
       Lock the reader or writer mutex. Returns 0 or a code to give mdb_mutex_failed(), as in
       LOCK_MUTEX().

   #define UNLOCK_MUTEX(mutex)   pthread_mutex_unlock(mutex)
       Unlock the reader or writer mutex.

   #define mdb_mutex_consistent(mutex)   pthread_mutex_consistent(mutex)
       Mark mutex-protected data as repaired, after death of previous owner.

   #define ErrCode()   errno
       Get the error code for the last failed system function.

   #define HANDLE   int
       An abstraction for a file handle. On POSIX systems file handles are small integers. On
       Windows they're opaque pointers.

   #define INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE   (-1)
       A value for an invalid file handle. Mainly used to initialize file variables and signify
       that they are unused.

   #define GET_PAGESIZE(x)   ((x) = sysconf(_SC_PAGE_SIZE))
       Get the size of a memory page for the system. This is the basic size that the platform's
       memory manager uses, and is fundamental to the use of memory-mapped files.

Typedef Documentation

   typedef pthread_mutex_t mdb_mutex_t[1]
       Shared mutex/semaphore as the original is stored.

       Not for copies. Instead it can be assigned to an mdb_mutexref_t. When mdb_mutexref_t is a
       pointer and mdb_mutex_t is not, then it is array[size 1] so it can be assigned to the
       pointer.

   typedef pthread_mutex_t* mdb_mutexref_t
       Reference to an mdb_mutex_t
