LIBNVPAIR(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBNVPAIR(3LIB)

libnvpair - name-value pair library

cc [ flag... ] file... -lnvpair [ library... ]
#include <libnvpair.h>

The libnvpair library exports a set of functions for managing name-value pairs.

The library defines four opaque handles:

nvpair_t

handle to a name-value pair

nvlist_t

handle to a list of name-value pairs

nv_alloc_t

handle to a pluggable allocator

nv_alloc_ops_t

handle to pluggable allocator operations

The library supports the following operations:

o
Allocate and free an nvlist_t.
o
Specify the allocater to be used when manipulating an nvlist_t.
o
Add and remove an nvpair_t from a list.
o
Search nvlist_t for a specified name pair.
o
Pack an nvlist_t into a contiguous buffer.
o
Expand a packed nvlist into a searchable nvlist_t.

The shared object libnvpair.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces.
