PPATH_BOOL(3)              Library Functions Manual              PPATH_BOOL(3)

NAME
     ppath_bool, ppath_copydel_bool, ppath_copyset_bool, ppath_set_bool,
     ppath_get_bool, ppath_delete_bool -- boolean property path operations

LIBRARY
     Property-List Paths Library (libppath, -lppath)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;ppath/ppath.h>&gt;

     int
     ppath_copydel_bool(prop_object_t, prop_object_t *, const ppath_t *);

     int
     ppath_copyset_bool(prop_object_t, prop_object_t *, const ppath_t
     *, bool);

     int
     ppath_set_bool(prop_object_t, const ppath_t *, bool);

     int
     ppath_get_bool(prop_object_t, const ppath_t *, bool *);

     int
     ppath_delete_bool(prop_object_t, const ppath_t *);

DESCRIPTION
     The ppath_bool routines read, write, or delete boolean values in a
     property list by path.

FUNCTIONS
     ppath_bool provides these functions for manipulating boolean values in a
     property list by the values' paths:

     ppath_copydel_bool(prop_object_t o, prop_object_t *op, const ppath_t *p)
            Create a copy of the property list o at *op.  Delete from the copy
            the prop_bool_t named by p.

            If *op is NULL, ppath_copydel_bool() creates a shallow copy of o
            at *op.  If *op is not NULL, ppath_copydel_bool() expects for *op
            to be an existing shallow copy of o.

            For the purposes of ppath_copydel_bool(), *op is a shallow copy of
            property list o if equal properties at equal paths are shared
            between the two.  Before ppath_copydel_bool() modifies a property
            shared by *op and o, it creates a private copy of the property for
            *op.

     ppath_copyset_bool(prop_object_t o, prop_object_t *op, const ppath_t *p,
            bool v)
            Create a copy of the property list o at *op.  In the copy, replace
            with v the prop_bool_t named by p.

            If *op is NULL, ppath_copyset_bool() creates a shallow copy of o
            at *op.  If *op is not NULL, ppath_copyset_bool() expects for *op
            to be an existing shallow copy of o.

            For the purposes of ppath_copyset_bool(), *op is a shallow copy of
            property list o if equal properties at equal paths are shared
            between the two.  Before ppath_copydel_bool() modifies a property
            shared by *op and o, it creates a private copy of the property for
            *op.

     ppath_set_bool(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p, bool v)
            Replace with v the prop_bool_t in o named by p.

     ppath_get_bool(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p, bool *vp)
            Retrieve the prop_bool_t named by p from o, and write it to *vp.

     ppath_delete_bool(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p)
            Delete the prop_bool_t named by p from o.  ppath_delete_bool()
            decreases by one the deleted boolean value's reference count.

RETURN VALUES
     ppath_bool routines return 0 on success, and non-zero on error.

ERRORS
     [EFTYPE]           A ppath_bool operation returns EFTYPE when the object
                        named by the path is not a prop_bool_t.

     [ENOENT]           ppath_bool routines return ENOENT if the path p does
                        not exist in o.

     [ENOMEM]           ppath_set_bool(), and ppath_copyset_bool() return
                        ENOMEM if there was insufficient memory to complete
                        the operation.
