NE_BUFFER_DESTROY(3)          neon API reference          NE_BUFFER_DESTROY(3)



NAME
       ne_buffer_destroy, ne_buffer_finish - destroy a buffer object

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ne_string.h>

       void ne_buffer_destroy(ne_buffer *buf);

       char *ne_buffer_finish(ne_buffer *buf);

DESCRIPTION
       ne_buffer_destroy frees all memory associated with the buffer.
       ne_buffer_finish frees the buffer structure, but not the actual string
       stored in the buffer, which is returned and must be free()d by the
       caller.

       Any use of the buffer object after calling either of these functions
       gives undefined behaviour.

RETURN VALUE
       ne_buffer_finish returns the malloc-allocated string stored in the
       buffer.

EXAMPLES
       An example use of ne_buffer_finish; the duplicate function returns a
       string made up of n copies of str:

           static char *duplicate(int n, const char *str)
           {
             ne_buffer *buf = ne_buffer_create();
             while (n--) {
               ne_buffer_zappend(buf, str);
             }
             return ne_buffer_finish(buf);
           }
