NAME

       ping_iterator_get_context, ping_iterator_set_context - Store host-dependent data

SYNOPSIS

         #include <oping.h>

         void *ping_iterator_get_context (pingobj_iter_t *iter);
         void  ping_iterator_set_context (pingobj_iter_t *iter, void *context);

DESCRIPTION

       ping_iterator_set_context can be used to store host-specific data within the liboping
       structures. This data can be received again by calling ping_iterator_get_context. The data
       itself is never touched by liboping. If you call ping_host_remove (see ping_host_add(3))
       or ping_destroy (see ping_construct(3)) and the context is not NULL liboping will assume
       you know what you're doing and simply ignore the fact this might be a memory leak.

       The iter argument is an iterator object as returned by ping_iterator_get(3) and
       ping_iterator_next.

       The context argument of ping_iterator_set_context is a pointer to anything and may be
       NULL.

RETURN VALUE

       ping_iterator_get_context returns the same pointer previously passed to
       ping_iterator_set_context or NULL if ping_iterator_set_context has never been called
       before.
