gd_move -- move a dirfile field between format specification fragments
int gd_move(DIRFILE *dirfile, const char *field_code, int new_fragment,
The gd_move() function transfers the field specified by field_code,
which should not have a representation suffix, defined in the dirfile
specified by dirfile from it's current format specification fragment to
the fragment index by new_fragment. If the field is already defined in
the fragment index by new_fragment, this function does nothing.
If the flag move_data is non-zero, and field_code specifies a RAW
field, the binary file associated with the field will be translated to
account for the possibly different encoding, endianness, and frame
offset of the new format specification fragment. It will also be moved
to a new directory, if necessary. If move_data is zero, no changes
will be made to the binary file. If field_code specifies a field of
type other than RAW, the move_data flag is ignored.
If the binary file is translated, and the frame offset of the
destination fragment is larger than that of the source fragment, this
will result in permanent deletion of data from the database. If the
new frame offset is smaller than the old frame offset, the binary file
will be padded at the front with zeroes.
On success, gd_move() returns zero. On error, -1 is returned and the
dirfile error is set to a non-zero error value. Possible error values
The specified dirfile was opened read-only.
The library was unable to allocate memory.
The field specified by field_code was not found.
The supplied dirfile was invalid.
An attempt was made to move the immutable INDEX field.
The new_fragment argument did not index a valid format
The metadata of the source or destination format specification
fragments was protected from change, or the binary data of the
source or destination fragments was protected from change and
binary file translation was requested.
An I/O error occurred while attempting to translate a binary
The encoding scheme of the source or destination fragment is
The encoding scheme of the source or destination fragment does
not support binary file translation.
The dirfile error may be retrieved by calling gd_error(3). A
descriptive error string for the last error encountered can be obtained
from a call to gd_error_string(3).
A binary file translation occurs out-of-place. As a result, sufficient
space must be present on the filesystem for both the binary file before
translation and the binary file after translation.
