genders_testattr - test if a node has an attribute
int genders_testattr(genders_t handle, const char *node, const char
*attr, char *val, int len);
int genders_testattrval(genders_t handle, const char *node, const char
*attr, const char *val);
genders_testattr() tests if the node pointed to by node contains the
attribute pointed to by attr. If node is NULL, the current node is
tested. If the attribute is found, its value is stored in the buffer
pointed to by val. len should indicate the length of the buffer. If
the attribute value is not needed, val can be set to NULL.
To avoid passing in an attribute value buffer that is not large enough
to store the attribute value, genders_getmaxvallen(3) should be used to
determine the minimum buffer size that should be used.
genders_testattrval() tests if the node pointed to by node contains the
attribute pointed to by attr and if that attribute is equal to the
attribute value pointed to by val. If val is NULL, only the attribute
For genders_testattr(), if the node contains the attribute, 1 is
returned. 0 is returned if the node does not contain the attribute.
For genders_testattrval(), if the node contains the attribute and it is
equal to the attribute value, 1 is returned. 0 is returned if the node
does not contain the attribute, or if the attribute is not equal to the
For both genders_testattr() and genders_testattrval(), -1 is returned
on error, and an error code is returned in handle. The error code can
be retrieved via genders_errnum(3) , and a description of the error
code can be retrieved via genders_strerror(3). Error codes are defined
The handle parameter is NULL. The genders handle must be
created with genders_handle_create(3).
genders_load_data(3) has not been called to load genders data.
The buffer pointed to by val is not large enough to store the
An incorrect parameter has been passed in.
The node pointed to by node cannot be found in the genders file
or if node=NULL, the machine genders is running on is not listed
in the genders database.
handle has an incorrect magic number. handle does not point to
