NAME

       tdb_fetch - fetch a record from a tdb database

SYNOPSIS

       #include <tdb.h>

       TDB_DATA tdb_fetch(TDB_CONTEXT *tdb, TDB_DATA key);

DESCRIPTION

       Fetch the record from the tdb database whose key matches key , a lump of data that is used
       as the index into the database.

       The TDB_DATA structure used for both the key and the return value is defined as:

              typedef struct {
                   char *dptr;
                   size_t dsize;
              } TDB_DATA;

RETURN VALUE

       If the call succeeds, then a TDB_DATA structure is returned with the dptr structure filled
       in. If the call fails then dptr will be set to NULL.

       NOTE: The caller is responsible for freeing the data pointed to by dptr.
