NAME

       ldns_buffer_new,    ldns_buffer_new_frm_data,    ldns_buffer_clear,    ldns_buffer_printf,

       ldns_buffer_free, ldns_buffer_export-

SYNOPSIS

       #include <stdint.h>
       #include <stdbool.h>

       #include <ldns/ldns.h>

       ldns_buffer* ldns_buffer_new(size_t capacity);

       void ldns_buffer_new_frm_data(ldns_buffer *buffer, void *data, size_t size);

       void ldns_buffer_clear(ldns_buffer *buffer);

       int ldns_buffer_printf(ldns_buffer *buffer, const char *format, ...);

       void ldns_buffer_free(ldns_buffer *buffer);

       void* ldns_buffer_export(ldns_buffer *buffer);

DESCRIPTION

       ldns_buffer_new() creates a new buffer with the specified capacity.

              capacity: the size (in bytes) to allocate for the buffer
              Returns the created buffer

       ldns_buffer_new_frm_data() creates a buffer with the specified data.  The data  IS  copied
              and  MEMORY allocations are done.  The buffer is not fixed and can be resized using
              buffer_reserve().

              buffer: pointer to the buffer to put the data in
              data: the data to encapsulate in the buffer
              size: the size of the data

       ldns_buffer_clear() clears the buffer and make it ready for writing.  The  buffer's  limit
              is set to the capacity and the position is set to 0.
              buffer: the buffer to clear

       ldns_buffer_printf()  prints  to  the  buffer,  increasing  the capacity if required using
              buffer_reserve(). The buffer's position is set to the terminating '\\0' Returns the
              number  of  characters  written  (not  including  the  terminating  '\\0') or -1 on
              failure.

       ldns_buffer_free() frees the buffer.
              *buffer: the buffer to be freed
              Returns void

       ldns_buffer_export() Makes the buffer fixed and returns a pointer to the data.  The caller
              is responsible for free'ing the result.
              *buffer: the buffer to be exported
              Returns void
