typedef struct svn_stream_t svn_stream_t

An abstract stream of bytes–either incoming or outgoing or both.

The creator of a stream sets functions to handle read and write. Both of these handlers accept a baton whose value is determined at stream creation time; this baton can point to a structure containing data associated with the stream. If a caller attempts to invoke a handler which has not been set, it will generate a runtime assertion failure. The creator can also set a handler for close requests so that it can flush buffered data or whatever; if a close handler is not specified, a close request on the stream will simply be ignored. Note that svn_stream_close() does not deallocate the memory used to allocate the stream structure; free the pool you created the stream in to free that memory.

The read and write handlers accept length arguments via pointer. On entry to the handler, the pointed-to value should be the amount of data which can be read or the amount of data to write. When the handler returns, the value is reset to the amount of data actually read or written. The write and full read handler are obliged to complete a read or write to the maximum extent possible; thus, a short read with no associated error implies the end of the input stream, and a short write should never occur without an associated error. In Subversion 1.9 the stream api was extended to also support limited reads via the new svn_stream_read2() api.

In Subversion 1.7 mark, seek and reset support was added as an optional feature of streams. If a stream implements resetting it allows reading the data again after a successful call to svn_stream_reset().

Definition at line 863 of file svn_io.h.

typedef svn_error_t*(* svn_write_fn_t)(void *baton, const char *data, apr_size_t *len)

Write handler function for a generic stream.

Function Documentation

svn_stream_t* svn_stream_buffered ( apr_pool_t *  result_pool)

Return a generic stream which implements buffered reads and writes.

The stream will preferentially store data in-memory, but may use disk storage as backup if the amount of data is large. Allocate the stream in result_pool

Since
New in 1.8.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_checksummed ( svn_stream_t stream,
const unsigned char **  read_digest,
const unsigned char **  write_digest,
svn_boolean_t  read_all,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Similar to svn_stream_checksummed2(), but always returning the MD5 checksum in read_digest and write_digest.

Since
New in 1.4.
Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.5 API.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_checksummed2 ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_checksum_t **  read_checksum,
svn_checksum_t **  write_checksum,
svn_checksum_kind_t  checksum_kind,
svn_boolean_t  read_all,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Return a stream that calculates checksums for all data read and written.

The stream stream is used to read and write all data. The stream and the resulting digests are allocated in pool.

When the stream is closed, *read_checksum and *write_checksum are set to point to the resulting checksums, of type read_checksum_kind and write_checksum_kind, respectively.

Both read_checksum and write_checksum can be NULL, in which case the respective checksum isn't calculated.

If read_all is TRUE, make sure that all data available on stream is read (and checksummed) when the stream is closed.

Read and write operations can be mixed without interfering.

The stream passed into this function is closed when the created stream is closed.

Since
New in 1.6.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_close ( svn_stream_t stream)

Close a generic stream.

See Also
svn_stream_t.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_compressed ( svn_stream_t stream,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Return a stream that decompresses all data read and compresses all data written.

The stream stream is used to read and write all compressed data. All compression data structures are allocated on pool. If compression support is not compiled in then svn_stream_compressed() returns stream unmodified. Make sure you call svn_stream_close() on the stream returned by this function, so that all data are flushed and cleaned up.

Note
From 1.4, compression support is always compiled in.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_contents_same ( svn_boolean_t same,
svn_stream_t stream1,
svn_stream_t stream2,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Same as svn_stream_contents_same2(), but the streams will not be closed.

Since
New in 1.4.
Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.6 API.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_contents_same2 ( svn_boolean_t same,
svn_stream_t stream1,
svn_stream_t stream2,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Set *same to TRUE if stream1 and stream2 have the same contents, else set it to FALSE.

Both streams will be closed before this function returns (regardless of the result, or any possible error).

Use scratch_pool for temporary allocations.

Since
New in 1.7.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_copy ( svn_stream_t from,
svn_stream_t to,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Same as svn_stream_copy3(), but without the cancellation function or stream closing.

Since
New in 1.1.
Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.4 API.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_copy2 ( svn_stream_t from,
svn_stream_t to,
svn_cancel_func_t  cancel_func,
void *  cancel_baton,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Same as svn_stream_copy3() but the streams are not closed.

Since
New in 1.5.
Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.5 API.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_copy3 ( svn_stream_t from,
svn_stream_t to,
svn_cancel_func_t  cancel_func,
void *  cancel_baton,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Read the contents of the readable stream from and write them to the writable stream to calling cancel_func before copying each chunk.

cancel_func may be NULL.

Note
both from and to will be closed upon successful completion of the copy (but an error may still be returned, based on trying to close the two streams). If the closure is not desired, then you can use svn_stream_disown() to protect either or both of the streams from being closed.
Since
New in 1.6.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_create ( void *  baton,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Create a generic stream.

See Also
svn_stream_t.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_data_available ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_boolean_t data_available 
)

When a stream supports polling for available data, obtain a boolean indicating whether data is waiting to be read.

If the stream doesn't support polling this function returns a SVN_ERR_STREAM_NOT_SUPPORTED error.

If the data_available callback is implemented and the stream is at the end the stream will set *data_available to FALSE.

Since
New in 1.9.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_disown ( svn_stream_t stream,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Return a stream allocated in pool which forwards all requests to stream.

Destruction is explicitly excluded from forwarding.

See Also
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/conventions.html#destruction-of-stacked-resources
Since
New in 1.4.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_empty ( apr_pool_t *  pool)

svn_error_t* svn_stream_for_stderr ( svn_stream_t **  err,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

The stream and its underlying APR handle will be closed when pool is cleared or destroyed.

Since
New in 1.7.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_for_stdin ( svn_stream_t **  in,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Set *in to a generic stream connected to stdin, allocated in pool.

The stream and its underlying APR handle will be closed when pool is cleared or destroyed.

Since
New in 1.7.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_for_stdout ( svn_stream_t **  out,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Set *out to a generic stream connected to stdout, allocated in pool.

The stream and its underlying APR handle will be closed when pool is cleared or destroyed.

svn_stream_t* svn_stream_from_aprfile ( apr_file_t *  file,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Similar to svn_stream_from_aprfile2(), except that the file will always be disowned.

Note
The stream returned is not considered to "own" the underlying file, meaning that svn_stream_close() on the stream will not close the file.
Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.3 API.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_from_aprfile2 ( apr_file_t *  file,
svn_boolean_t  disown,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Create a stream from an APR file.

For convenience, if file is NULL, an empty stream created by svn_stream_empty() is returned.

This function should normally be called with disown set to FALSE, in which case closing the stream will also close the underlying file.

If disown is TRUE, the stream will disown the underlying file, meaning that svn_stream_close() will not close the file.

Since
New in 1.4.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_from_string ( const svn_string_t str,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Return a generic read-only stream connected to string str.

Allocate the stream in pool.

svn_stream_t* svn_stream_from_stringbuf ( svn_stringbuf_t str,
apr_pool_t *  pool

Allocate the stream in pool.

svn_stream_t* svn_stream_lazyopen_create ( svn_stream_lazyopen_func_t  open_func,
void *  open_baton,
svn_boolean_t  open_on_close,
apr_pool_t *  result_pool 
)

Return a generic stream which wraps another primary stream, delaying the "opening" of that stream until the first time the returned stream is accessed.

open_func and open_baton are a callback function/baton pair which will be invoked upon the first access of the returned stream (read, write, mark, seek, skip, or possibly close). The callback shall open the primary stream.

If the only "access" the returned stream gets is to close it then open_func will only be called if open_on_close is TRUE.

Allocate the returned stream in result_pool. Also arrange for result_pool to be passed as the result_pool parameter to open_func when it is called.

Since
New in 1.8.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_mark ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_stream_mark_t **  mark,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Set a mark at the current position of a generic stream, which can later be sought back to using svn_stream_seek().

The mark is allocated in pool.

This function returns the SVN_ERR_STREAM_SEEK_NOT_SUPPORTED error if the stream doesn't implement seeking.

See Also
svn_stream_seek()
Since
New in 1.7.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_open_readonly ( svn_stream_t **  stream,
const char *  path,
apr_pool_t *  result_pool,
apr_pool_t *  scratch_pool 
)

Create a stream to read the file at path.

It will be opened using the APR_BUFFERED and APR_BINARY flag, and APR_OS_DEFAULT for the perms. If you'd like to use different values, then open the file yourself, and use the svn_stream_from_aprfile2() interface.

The stream will be returned in stream, and allocated from result_pool. Temporary allocations will be performed in scratch_pool.

Since
New in 1.6
svn_error_t* svn_stream_open_unique ( svn_stream_t **  stream,
const char **  temp_path,
const char *  dirpath,
svn_io_file_del_t  delete_when,
apr_pool_t *  result_pool,
apr_pool_t *  scratch_pool 
)

Create a writable stream to a file in the directory dirpath.

The file will have an arbitrary and unique name, and the full path will be returned in temp_path. The stream will be returned in stream. Both will be allocated from result_pool.

If dirpath is NULL, use the path returned from svn_io_temp_dir(). (Note that when using the system-provided temp directory, it may not be possible to atomically rename the resulting file due to cross-device issues.)

The file will be deleted according to delete_when. If that is svn_io_file_del_on_pool_cleanup, it refers to result_pool.

Temporary allocations will be performed in scratch_pool.

svn_io_open_unique_file3()
svn_error_t* svn_stream_open_writable ( svn_stream_t **  stream,
const char *  path,
apr_pool_t *  result_pool,
apr_pool_t *  scratch_pool 
)

Create a stream to write a file at path.

The file will be created using the APR_BUFFERED and APR_BINARY flag, and APR_OS_DEFAULT for the perms. The file will be created "exclusively", so if it already exists, then an error will be thrown. If you'd like to use different values, or open an existing file, then open the file yourself, and use the svn_stream_from_aprfile2() interface.

The stream will be returned in stream, and allocated from result_pool. Temporary allocations will be performed in scratch_pool.

Since
New in 1.6
svn_error_t* svn_stream_printf_from_utf8 ( svn_stream_t stream,
const char *  encoding,
apr_pool_t *  pool,
const char *  fmt,
  ... 
)

Write to stream using a printf-style fmt specifier, passed through apr_psprintf() using memory from pool.

The resulting string will be translated to encoding before it is sent to stream.

Note
Use APR_LOCALE_CHARSET to translate to the encoding of the current locale.
Since
New in 1.3.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_puts ( svn_stream_t stream,
const char *  str 
)

Write NULL-terminated string str to stream.

Since
New in 1.8.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_read ( svn_stream_t stream,
char *  buffer,
apr_size_t *  len 
)

Read from a generic stream until the buffer is completely filled or EOF.

See Also
svn_stream_t.
Note
This function is a wrapper of svn_stream_read_full() now, which name better documents the behavior of this function.
Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.8 API
svn_error_t* svn_stream_read2 ( svn_stream_t stream,
char *  buffer,
apr_size_t *  len 
)

Read all currently available upto *len into buffer.

Use svn_stream_read_full() if you want to wait for the buffer to be filled or EOF. If the stream doesn't support limited reads this function will return an SVN_ERR_STREAM_NOT_SUPPORTED error.

A 0 byte read signals the end of the stream.

Since
New in 1.9.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_read_full ( svn_stream_t stream,
char *  buffer,
apr_size_t *  len 
)

Read from a generic stream until buffer is filled upto *len or until EOF is reached.

New in 1.9.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_readline ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_stringbuf_t **  stringbuf,
const char *  eol,
svn_boolean_t eof,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Allocate *stringbuf in pool, and read into it one line (terminated by eol) from stream.

The line-terminator is read from the stream, but is not added to the end of the stringbuf. Instead, the stringbuf ends with a usual '\0'.

If stream runs out of bytes before encountering a line-terminator, then set *eof to TRUE, otherwise set *eof to FALSE.

svn_error_t* svn_stream_reset ( svn_stream_t stream)

Reset a generic stream back to its origin.

(E.g. On a file this would be implemented as a seek to position 0). This function returns a SVN_ERR_STREAM_SEEK_NOT_SUPPORTED error when the stream doesn't implement resetting.

Since
New in 1.7.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_seek ( svn_stream_t stream,
const svn_stream_mark_t mark 
)

Seek to a mark in a generic stream.

This function returns the SVN_ERR_STREAM_SEEK_NOT_SUPPORTED error if the stream doesn't implement seeking. Passing NULL as mark, seeks to the start of the stream.

See Also
svn_stream_mark()
Since
New in 1.7.
void svn_stream_set_data_available ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_stream_data_available_fn_t  data_available 
)

Set stream's data available function to data_available_fn.

Since
New in 1.9.
void svn_stream_set_mark ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_stream_mark_fn_t  mark_fn 
)

Set stream's mark function to mark_fn.

Since
New in 1.7.
void svn_stream_set_read ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_read_fn_t  read_fn 
)

Set stream's read function to read_fn.

This function sets only the full read function to read_fn.

Deprecated:
Provided for backward compatibility with the 1.8 API.
void svn_stream_set_read2 ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_read_fn_t  read_fn,
svn_read_fn_t  read_full_fn 
)

Set stream's read functions to read_fn and read_full_fn.

If read_full_fn is NULL a default implementation based on multiple calls to read_fn will be used.

Since
New in 1.9.
void svn_stream_set_seek ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_stream_seek_fn_t  seek_fn 
)

Set stream's seek function to seek_fn.

Since
New in 1.7.
void svn_stream_set_skip ( svn_stream_t stream,
svn_stream_skip_fn_t  skip_fn 
)

Set stream's skip function to skip_fn.

Since
New in 1.7
svn_error_t* svn_stream_skip ( svn_stream_t stream,
apr_size_t  len 
)

Skip len bytes from a generic stream.

If the stream is exhausted before len bytes have been read, return an error.

Note
No assumption can be made on the semantics of this function other than that the stream read pointer will be advanced by *len bytes. Depending on the capabilities of the underlying stream implementation, this may for instance be translated into a sequence of reads or a simple seek operation. If the stream implementation has not provided a skip function, this will read from the stream and discard the data.
Since
New in 1.7.
svn_boolean_t svn_stream_supports_mark ( svn_stream_t stream)

Returns TRUE if the generic stream supports svn_stream_mark().

See Also
svn_stream_mark()
Since
New in 1.7.
svn_boolean_t svn_stream_supports_partial_read ( svn_stream_t stream)

Returns TRUE if the generic stream supports svn_stream_read2().

Since
New in 1.9.
svn_stream_t* svn_stream_tee ( svn_stream_t out1,
svn_stream_t out2,
apr_pool_t *  pool 
)

Return a writable stream which, when written to, writes to both of the underlying streams.

Both of these streams will be closed upon closure of the returned stream; use svn_stream_disown() if this is not the desired behavior. One or both of out1 and out2 may be NULL. If both are NULL, NULL is returned.

Since
New in 1.7.
svn_error_t* svn_stream_write ( svn_stream_t stream,
const char *  data,
apr_size_t *  len 
)

Write to a generic stream.

See Also
svn_stream_t.
svn_error_t* svn_string_from_stream ( svn_string_t **  result,
svn_stream_t stream,
apr_pool_t *  result_pool,
apr_pool_t *  scratch_pool 
)

Read the contents of stream into memory, returning the data in result.

The stream will be closed when it has been successfully and completely read.

The returned memory is allocated in result_pool, and any temporary allocations are performed in scratch_pool.

Note
due to memory pseudo-reallocation behavior (due to pools), this can be a memory-intensive operation for large files.
Since
New in 1.6
svn_error_t* svn_stringbuf_from_stream ( svn_stringbuf_t **  str,
svn_stream_t stream,
apr_size_t  len_hint,
apr_pool_t *  result_pool 
)

Set *str to a string buffer allocated in result_pool that contains all data from the current position in stream to its end.

len_hint specifies the initial capacity of the string buffer and may be 0. The buffer gets automatically resized to fit the actual amount of data being read from stream.

Since
New in 1.9.
