The storage buffer is fixed at its initial size. Attempting to extend the sbuf beyond this size results in an overflow condition.
This indicates that the storage buffer may be extended as necessary, so long as resources allow, to hold additional data.
Note that if buf is not NULL, it must point to an array of at least length characters. The result of accessing that array directly while it is in use by the sbuf is undefined.
The sbuf_delete function clears the sbuf and frees any memory allocated for it. There must be a call to sbuf_delete for every call to sbuf_new. Any attempt to access the sbuf after it has been deleted will fail.
The sbuf_clear function invalidates the contents of the sbuf and resets its position to zero.
The sbuf_setpos function sets the sbuf s end position to pos, which is a value between zero and one less than the size of the storage buffer. This effectively truncates the sbuf at the new position.
The sbuf_bcat function appends the first len bytes from the buffer buf to the sbuf.
The sbuf_bcopyin function copies len bytes from the specified userland address into the sbuf.
The sbuf_bcpy function replaces the contents of the sbuf with the first len bytes from the buffer buf.
The sbuf_cat function appends the NUL-terminated string str to the sbuf at the current position.
The sbuf_copyin function copies a NUL-terminated string from the specified userland address into the sbuf. If the len argument is non-zero, no more than len characters (not counting the terminating NUL) are copied; otherwise the entire string, or as much of it as can fit in the sbuf, is copied.
The sbuf_cpy function replaces the contents of the sbuf with those of the NUL-terminated string str. This is equivalent to calling sbuf_cat with a fresh sbuf or one which position has been reset to zero with sbuf_clear or sbuf_setpos.
The sbuf_printf function formats its arguments according to the format string pointed to by fmt and appends the resulting string to the sbuf at the current position.
The sbuf_vprintf function behaves the same as sbuf_printf except that the arguments are obtained from the variable-length argument list ap.
The sbuf_putc function appends the character c to the sbuf at the current position.
The sbuf_trim function removes trailing whitespace from the sbuf.
The sbuf_overflowed function returns a non-zero value if the sbuf overflowed.
The sbuf_finish function null-terminates the sbuf and marks it as finished, which means that it may no longer be modified using sbuf_setpos, sbuf_cat, sbuf_cpy, sbuf_printf or sbuf_putc.
The sbuf_data and sbuf_len functions return the actual string and its length, respectively; sbuf_data only works on a finished sbuf. sbuf_done returns non-zero if the sbuf is finished.
