#ifndef STRBUF_H
#define STRBUF_H
* Strbuf's can be use in many ways: as a byte array, or to store arbitrary
* long, overflow safe strings.
* Strbufs has some invariants that are very important to keep in mind:
* 1. the ->buf member is always malloc-ed, hence strbuf's can be used to
* build complex strings/buffers whose final size isn't easily known.
* It is NOT legal to copy the ->buf pointer away.
* `strbuf_detach' is the operation that detachs a buffer from its shell
* while keeping the shell valid wrt its invariants.
* 2. the ->buf member is a byte array that has at least ->len + 1 bytes
* allocated. The extra byte is used to store a '\0', allowing the ->buf
* member to be a valid C-string. Every strbuf function ensure this
* invariant is preserved.
* Note that it is OK to "play" with the buffer directly if you work it
* that way:
* strbuf_grow(sb, SOME_SIZE);
* ... Here, the memory array starting at sb->buf, and of length
* ... strbuf_avail(sb) is all yours, and you are sure that
* ... strbuf_avail(sb) is at least SOME_SIZE.
* strbuf_setlen(sb, sb->len + SOME_OTHER_SIZE);
* Of course, SOME_OTHER_SIZE must be smaller or equal to strbuf_avail(sb).
* Doing so is safe, though if it has to be done in many places, adding the
* missing API to the strbuf module is the way to go.
* XXX: do _not_ assume that the area that is yours is of size ->alloc - 1
* even if it's true in the current implementation. Alloc is somehow a
* "private" member that should not be messed with.
