NAME

       zmq_msg_init_data - initialise 0MQ message from a supplied buffer

SYNOPSIS

       typedef void (zmq_free_fn) (void *data, void *hint);

       int zmq_msg_init_data (zmq_msg_t *msg, void *data, size_t size,
       zmq_free_fn *ffn, void *hint);

DESCRIPTION

       The zmq_msg_init_data() function shall initialise the message object
       referenced by msg to represent the content referenced by the buffer
       located at address data, size bytes long. No copy of data shall be
       performed and 0MQ shall take ownership of the supplied buffer.

       If provided, the deallocation function ffn shall be called once the
       data buffer is no longer required by 0MQ, with the data and hint
       arguments supplied to zmq_msg_init_data().

           Caution
           Never access zmq_msg_t members directly, instead always use the
           zmq_msg family of functions.

           Caution
           The deallocation function ffn needs to be thread-safe, since it
           will be called from an arbitrary thread.

           Caution
           The functions zmq_msg_init(), zmq_msg_init_data() and
           zmq_msg_init_size() are mutually exclusive. Never initialize the
           same zmq_msg_t twice.

RETURN VALUE

       The zmq_msg_init_data() function shall return zero if successful.
       Otherwise it shall return -1 and set errno to one of the values defined
       below.

ERRORS

       No errors are defined.

EXAMPLE

       Initialising a message from a supplied buffer.

           void my_free (void *data, void *hint)
           {
               free (data);
           }

               /*  ...  */

           void *data = malloc (6);
           assert (data);
           memcpy (data, "ABCDEF", 6);
           zmq_msg_t msg;
           rc = zmq_msg_init_data (&msg, data, 6, my_free, NULL);
           assert (rc == 0);
