Overview

Scope and Goals

CZMQ has these goals:

  • To wrap the ØMQ core API in semantics that lead to shorter, more readable applications.
  • To hide as far as possible the differences between different versions of ØMQ (2.x, 3.x, 4.x).
  • To provide a space for development of more sophisticated API semantics.
  • To wrap the ØMQ security features with high-level tools and APIs.
  • To become the basis for other language bindings built on top of CZMQ.

CZMQ grew out of concepts developed in ØMQ - The Guide.

Using CZMQ

Building and Installing

Here's how to build CZMQ from GitHub (building from packages is very similar, you don't clone a repo but unpack a tarball), including the libsodium (for security) and libzmq (ZeroMQ core) libraries:

git clone git://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium.git
cd libsodium
./autogen.sh
./configure && make check
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd ..

git clone git://github.com/zeromq/libzmq.git
cd libzmq
./autogen.sh
./configure && make check
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd ..

git clone git://github.com/zeromq/czmq.git
cd czmq
./autogen.sh
./configure && make check
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
cd ..

In general CZMQ works best with the latest libzmq master. If you already have an older version of libzmq installed on your system, e.g. in /usr/, then you can install libzmq master to your home directory ($HOME/local):

#   Building libzmq in our home directory
./configure --prefix=$HOME/local

And then to build CZMQ against this installation of libzmq:

export CFLAGS=-I$HOME/local/include
export LDFLAGS=-L$HOME/local/lib64
./configure

You will need the pkg-config, libtool, and autoreconf packages. After building, run the CZMQ selftests:

make check

Linking with an Application

Include czmq.h in your application and link with libczmq. Here is a typical gcc link command:

gcc -lczmq -lzmq myapp.c -o myapp

API v3 Summary

This is the API provided by CZMQ v3.x, in alphabetical order.

zactor - simple actor framework

The zactor class provides a simple actor framework. It replaces the CZMQ zthread class, which had a complex API that did not fit the CLASS standard. A CZMQ actor is implemented as a thread plus a PAIR-PAIR pipe. The constructor and destructor are always synchronized, so the caller can be sure all resources are created, and destroyed, when these calls complete. (This solves a major problem with zthread, that a caller could not be sure when a child thread had finished.)

A zactor_t instance acts like a zsock_t and you can pass it to any CZMQ method that would take a zsock_t argument, including methods in zframe, zmsg, zstr, zpoller, and zloop.

An actor function MUST call zsock_signal (pipe) when initialized and MUST listen to pipe and exit on $TERM command.

This is the class interface:

//  Actors get a pipe and arguments from caller
typedef void (zactor_fn) (zsock_t *pipe, void *args);

//  Create a new actor passing arbitrary arguments reference.
CZMQ_EXPORT zactor_t *
    zactor_new (zactor_fn *task, void *args);

//  Destroy an actor.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zactor_destroy (zactor_t **p_self);

//  Send a zmsg message to the actor, take ownership of the message
//  and destroy when it has been sent.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zactor_send (zactor_t *self, zmsg_t **msg_p);

//  Receive a zmsg message from the actor. Returns NULL if the actor
//  was interrupted before the message could be received, or if there
//  was a timeout on the actor.
CZMQ_EXPORT zmsg_t *
    zactor_recv (zactor_t *self);

//  Probe the supplied object, and report if it looks like a zactor_t.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zactor_is (void *self);

//  Probe the supplied reference. If it looks like a zactor_t instance,
//  return the underlying libzmq actor handle; else if it looks like
//  a libzmq actor handle, return the supplied value.
CZMQ_EXPORT void *
    zactor_resolve (void *self);

//  Return the actor's zsock handle. Use this when you absolutely need
//  to work with the zsock instance rather than the actor.
CZMQ_EXPORT zsock_t *
    zactor_sock (zactor_t *self);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zactor_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

zactor_t *actor = zactor_new (echo_actor, "Hello, World");
assert (actor);
zstr_sendx (actor, "ECHO", "This is a string", NULL);
char *string = zstr_recv (actor);
assert (streq (string, "This is a string"));
free (string);
zactor_destroy (&actor);

zauth - authentication for ZeroMQ security mechanisms

A zauth actor takes over authentication for all incoming connections in its context. You can whitelist or blacklist peers based on IP address, and define policies for securing PLAIN, CURVE, and GSSAPI connections.

This class replaces zauth_v2, and is meant for applications that use the CZMQ v3 API (meaning, zsock).

This is the class interface:

#define CURVE_ALLOW_ANY "*"

//  CZMQ v3 API (for use with zsock, not zsocket, which is deprecated).
//
//  Create new zauth actor instance. This installs authentication on all 
//  zsock sockets. Until you add policies, all incoming NULL connections are
//  allowed (classic ZeroMQ behaviour), and all PLAIN and CURVE connections
//  are denied:
//  
//      zactor_t *auth = zactor_new (zauth, NULL);
//
//  Destroy zauth instance. This removes authentication and allows all
//  connections to pass, without authentication:
//  
//      zactor_destroy (&auth);
//
//  Note that all zauth commands are synchronous, so your application always
//  waits for a signal from the actor after each command.
//
//  Enable verbose logging of commands and activity. Verbose logging can help
//  debug non-trivial authentication policies:
//
//      zstr_send (auth, "VERBOSE");
//      zsock_wait (auth);
//
//  Allow (whitelist) a list of IP addresses. For NULL, all clients from
//  these addresses will be accepted. For PLAIN and CURVE, they will be
//  allowed to continue with authentication. You can call this method
//  multiple times to whitelist more IP addresses. If you whitelist one
//  or nmore addresses, any non-whitelisted addresses are treated as
//  blacklisted:
//  
//      zstr_sendx (auth, "ALLOW", "127.0.0.1", "127.0.0.2", NULL);
//      zsock_wait (auth);
//  
//  Deny (blacklist) a list of IP addresses. For all security mechanisms,
//  this rejects the connection without any further authentication. Use
//  either a whitelist, or a blacklist, not not both. If you define both
//  a whitelist and a blacklist, only the whitelist takes effect:
//  
//      zstr_sendx (auth, "DENY", "192.168.0.1", "192.168.0.2", NULL);
//      zsock_wait (auth);
//
//  Configure PLAIN authentication using a plain-text password file. You can
//  modify the password file at any time; zauth will reload it automatically
//  if modified externally:
//  
//      zstr_sendx (auth, "PLAIN", filename, NULL);
//      zsock_wait (auth);
//
//  Configure CURVE authentication, using a directory that holds all public
//  client certificates, i.e. their public keys. The certificates must be in
//  zcert_save format. You can add and remove certificates in that directory
//  at any time. To allow all client keys without checking, specify
//  CURVE_ALLOW_ANY for the directory name:
//
//      zstr_sendx (auth, "CURVE", directory, NULL);
//      zsock_wait (auth);
//
//  Configure GSSAPI authentication, using an underlying mechanism (usually
//  Kerberos) to establish a secure context and perform mutual authentication:
//
//      zstr_sendx (auth, "GSSAPI", NULL);
//      zsock_wait (auth);
//
//  This is the zauth constructor as a zactor_fn:
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zauth (zsock_t *pipe, void *unused);

//  Selftest
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zauth_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

//  Create temporary directory for test files
#   define TESTDIR ".test_zauth"
zsys_dir_create (TESTDIR);

//  Check there's no authentication
zsock_t *server = zsock_new (ZMQ_PUSH);

}
//  Check there's no authentication on a default NULL server
success = s_can_connect (&server, &client);
assert (success);

//  When we set a domain on the server, we switch on authentication

zsock_set_zap_domain (server, "global");
success = s_can_connect (&server, &client);
assert (success);

zbeacon - LAN discovery and presence

The zbeacon class implements a peer-to-peer discovery service for local networks. A beacon can broadcast and/or capture service announcements using UDP messages on the local area network. This implementation uses IPv4 UDP broadcasts. You can define the format of your outgoing beacons, and set a filter that validates incoming beacons. Beacons are sent and received asynchronously in the background.

This class replaces zbeacon_v2, and is meant for applications that use the CZMQ v3 API (meaning, zsock).

This is the class interface:

//  Create new zbeacon actor instance:
//
//      zactor_t *beacon = zactor_new (zbeacon, NULL);
//
//  Destroy zbeacon instance:
//
//      zactor_destroy (&beacon);
//
//  Enable verbose logging of commands and activity:
//
//      zstr_send (beacon, "VERBOSE");
//
//  Configure beacon to run on specified UDP port, and return the name of
//  the host, which can be used as endpoint for incoming connections. To
//  force the beacon to operate on a given interface, set the environment
//  variable ZSYS_INTERFACE, or call zsys_set_interface() before creating
//  the beacon. If the system does not support UDP broadcasts (lacking a
//  workable interface), returns an empty hostname:
//
//      //  Pictures: 's' = C string, 'i' = int
//      zsock_send (beacon, "si", "CONFIGURE", port_number);
//      char *hostname = zstr_recv (beacon);
//
//  Start broadcasting a beacon at a specified interval in msec. The beacon
//  data can be at most UDP_FRAME_MAX bytes; this constant is defined in
//  zsys.h to be 255:
//
//      //  Pictures: 'b' = byte * data + size_t size
//      zsock_send (beacon, "sbi", "PUBLISH", data, size, interval);
//
//  Stop broadcasting the beacon:
//
//      zstr_sendx (beacon, "SILENCE", NULL);
//
//  Start listening to beacons from peers. The filter is used to do a prefix
//  match on received beacons, to remove junk. Note that any received data
//  that is identical to our broadcast beacon_data is discarded in any case.
//  If the filter size is zero, we get all peer beacons:
//  
//      zsock_send (beacon, "sb", "SUBSCRIBE", filter_data, filter_size);
//
//  Stop listening to other peers
//
//      zstr_sendx (beacon, "UNSUBSCRIBE", NULL);
//
//  Receive next beacon from a peer. Received beacons are always a 2-frame
//  message containing the ipaddress of the sender, and then the binary
//  beacon data as published by the sender:
//
//      zmsg_t *msg = zmsg_recv (beacon);
//
//  This is the zbeacon constructor as a zactor_fn:
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zbeacon (zsock_t *pipe, void *unused);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zbeacon_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

//  Test 1 - two beacons, one speaking, one listening
//  Create speaker beacon to broadcast our service

zcert - work with CURVE security certificates

The zcert class provides a way to create and work with security certificates for the ZMQ CURVE mechanism. A certificate contains a public + secret key pair, plus metadata. It can be used as a temporary object in memory, or persisted to disk. On disk, a certificate is stored as two files. One is public and contains only the public key. The second is secret and contains both keys. The two have the same filename, with the secret file adding "_secret". To exchange certificates, send the public file via some secure route. Certificates are not signed but are text files that can be verified by eye.

Certificates are stored in the ZPL (ZMQ RFC 4) format. They have two sections, "metadata" and "curve". The first contains a list of 'name = value' pairs, one per line. Values may be enclosed in quotes. The curve section has a 'public-key = keyvalue' and, for secret certificates, a 'secret-key = keyvalue' line. The keyvalue is a Z85-encoded CURVE key.

This is the class interface:

//  Create and initialize a new certificate in memory
CZMQ_EXPORT zcert_t *
    zcert_new (void);

//  Constructor, accepts public/secret key pair from caller
CZMQ_EXPORT zcert_t *
    zcert_new_from (byte *public_key, byte *secret_key);

//  Destroy a certificate in memory
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zcert_destroy (zcert_t **self_p);

//  Return public part of key pair as 32-byte binary string
CZMQ_EXPORT byte *
    zcert_public_key (zcert_t *self);

//  Return secret part of key pair as 32-byte binary string
CZMQ_EXPORT byte *
    zcert_secret_key (zcert_t *self);

//  Return public part of key pair as Z85 armored string
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zcert_public_txt (zcert_t *self);

//  Return secret part of key pair as Z85 armored string
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zcert_secret_txt (zcert_t *self);

//  Set certificate metadata from formatted string.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zcert_set_meta (zcert_t *self, const char *name, const char *format, ...);

//  Get metadata value from certificate; if the metadata value doesn't 
//  exist, returns NULL.
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zcert_meta (zcert_t *self, const char *name);

//  Get list of metadata fields from certificate. Caller is responsible for
//  destroying list. Caller should not modify the values of list items.
CZMQ_EXPORT zlist_t *
    zcert_meta_keys (zcert_t *self);

//  Load certificate from file (constructor)
CZMQ_EXPORT zcert_t *
    zcert_load (const char *filename);

//  Save full certificate (public + secret) to file for persistent storage

zcertstore - work with CURVE security certificate stores

To authenticate new clients using the ZeroMQ CURVE security mechanism, we have to check that the client's public key matches a key we know and accept. There are numerous ways to store accepted client public keys. The mechanism CZMQ implements is "certificates" (plain text files) held in a "certificate store" (a disk directory). This class works with such certificate stores, and lets you easily load them from disk, and check if a given client public key is known or not. The zcert class does the work of managing a single certificate.

The certificate store can be memory-only, in which case you can load it yourself by inserting certificate objects one by one, or it can be loaded from disk, in which case you can add, modify, or remove certificates on disk at any time, and the store will detect such changes and refresh itself automatically. In most applications you won't use this class directly but through the zauth class, which provides a high-level API for authentication (and manages certificate stores for you). To actually create certificates on disk, use the zcert class in code, or the tools/makecert.c command line tool, or any text editor. The format of a certificate file is defined in the zcert man page.

This is the class interface:

//  Create a new certificate store from a disk directory, loading and 
//  indexing all certificates in that location. The directory itself may be
//  absent, and created later, or modified at any time. The certificate store 
//  is automatically refreshed on any zcertstore_lookup() call. If the 
//  location is specified as NULL, creates a pure-memory store, which you 
//  can work with by inserting certificates at runtime.
CZMQ_EXPORT zcertstore_t *
    zcertstore_new (const char *location);

//  Destroy a certificate store object in memory. Does not affect anything
//  stored on disk.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zcertstore_destroy (zcertstore_t **self_p);

//  Look up certificate by public key, returns zcert_t object if found, 
//  else returns NULL. The public key is provided in Z85 text format.
CZMQ_EXPORT zcert_t *
    zcertstore_lookup (zcertstore_t *self, const char *public_key);

//  Insert certificate into certificate store in memory. Note that this 
//  does not save the certificate to disk. To do that, use zcert_save()
//  directly on the certificate. Takes ownership of zcert_t object.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zcertstore_insert (zcertstore_t *self, zcert_t **cert_p);

//  Print list of certificates in store to logging facility
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zcertstore_print (zcertstore_t *self);

zchunk - work with memory chunks

The zchunk class works with variable sized blobs. Not as efficient as MQ's messages but they do less weirdness and so are easier to understand. The chunk class has methods to read and write chunks from disk.

This is the class interface:

//  Create a new chunk of the specified size. If you specify the data, it
//  is copied into the chunk. If you do not specify the data, the chunk is

CZMQ_EXPORT size_t

CZMQ_EXPORT size_t
    zchunk_consume (zchunk_t *self, zchunk_t *source);

CZMQ_EXPORT bool

zclock - millisecond clocks and delays

The zclock class provides essential sleep and system time functions, used to slow down threads for testing, and calculate timers for polling. Wraps the non-portable system calls in a simple portable API.

The Win32 Sleep() call defaults to 16ms resolution unless the system timer resolution is increased with a call to timeBeginPeriod() permitting 1ms granularity.

This is the class interface:

//  Sleep for a number of milliseconds
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zclock_sleep (int msecs);

//  Return current system clock as milliseconds. Note that this clock can
//  jump backwards (if the system clock is changed) so is unsafe to use for
//  timers and time offsets. Use zclock_mono for that instead.
CZMQ_EXPORT int64_t
    zclock_time (void);

//  Return current monotonic clock in milliseconds. Use this when you compute
//  time offsets. The monotonic clock is not affected by system changes and
//  so will never be reset backwards, unlike a system clock.
CZMQ_EXPORT int64_t
    zclock_mono (void);

//  Return current monotonic clock in microseconds. Use this when you compute
//  time offsets. The monotonic clock is not affected by system changes and
//  so will never be reset backwards, unlike a system clock.
CZMQ_EXPORT int64_t
    zclock_usecs (void);

//  Return formatted date/time as fresh string. Free using zstr_free().
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zclock_timestr (void);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void

zdigest - provides hashing functions (SHA-1 at present)

The zdigest class generates a hash from zchunks of data. The current algorithm is SHA-1, chosen for speed. We are aiming to generate a unique digest for a file, and there are no security issues in this use case.

The current code depends on OpenSSL, which might be replaced by hard coded SHA-1 implementation to reduce build dependencies.

zdir - work with file-system directories

The zdir class gives access to the file system index. It will load a directory tree (a directory plus all child directories) into a zdir structure and then let you navigate that structure. It exists mainly to wrap non-portable OS functions to do this.

This is the class interface:

//  Create a new directory item that loads in the full tree of the specified
//  path, optionally located under some parent path. If parent is "-", then
//  loads only the top-level directory (and does not use parent as a path).
CZMQ_EXPORT zdir_t *
    zdir_new (const char *path, const char *parent);

//  Destroy a directory tree and all children it contains.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_destroy (zdir_t **self_p);

//  Return directory path
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zdir_path (zdir_t *self);

//  Return last modification time for directory.
CZMQ_EXPORT time_t
    zdir_modified (zdir_t *self);

//  Return total hierarchy size, in bytes of data contained in all files
//  in the directory tree.
CZMQ_EXPORT off_t
    zdir_cursize (zdir_t *self);

//  Return directory count
CZMQ_EXPORT size_t
    zdir_count (zdir_t *self);

//  Returns a sorted array of zfile objects; returns a single block of memory,
//  that you destroy by calling zstr_free(). Each entry in the array is a pointer
//  to a zfile_t item already allocated in the zdir tree. The array ends with
//  a null pointer. Do not destroy the original zdir tree until you are done
//  with this array.
CZMQ_EXPORT zfile_t **
    zdir_flatten (zdir_t *self);

//  Free a provided string, and nullify the parent pointer. Safe to call on
//  a null pointer.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_flatten_free (zfile_t ***files_p);

//  Remove directory, optionally including all files that it contains, at
//  all levels. If force is false, will only remove the directory if empty.
//  If force is true, will remove all files and all subdirectories.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_remove (zdir_t *self, bool force);

//  Calculate differences between two versions of a directory tree.
//  Returns a list of zdir_patch_t patches. Either older or newer may
//  be null, indicating the directory is empty/absent. If alias is set,
//  generates virtual filename (minus path, plus alias).
CZMQ_EXPORT zlist_t *
    zdir_diff (zdir_t *older, zdir_t *newer, const char *alias);

//  Return full contents of directory as a zdir_patch list.
CZMQ_EXPORT zlist_t *
    zdir_resync (zdir_t *self, const char *alias);

//  Load directory cache; returns a hash table containing the SHA-1 digests
//  of every file in the tree. The cache is saved between runs in .cache.
//  The caller must destroy the hash table when done with it.
CZMQ_EXPORT zhash_t *
    zdir_cache (zdir_t *self);

//  Print contents of directory to open stream
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_fprint (zdir_t *self, FILE *file, int indent);

//  Print contents of directory to stdout
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_print (zdir_t *self, int indent);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

zdir_t *older = zdir_new (".", NULL);
assert (older);
if (verbose) {
    printf ("\n");
    zdir_dump (older, 0);
}
zdir_t *newer = zdir_new ("..", NULL);
assert (newer);
zlist_t *patches = zdir_diff (older, newer, "/");
assert (patches);
while (zlist_size (patches)) {
    zdir_patch_t *patch = (zdir_patch_t *) zlist_pop (patches);
    zdir_patch_destroy (&patch);
}
zlist_destroy (&patches);
zdir_destroy (&older);
zdir_destroy (&newer);

zdir_t *nosuch = zdir_new ("does-not-exist", NULL);
assert (nosuch == NULL);

zdir_patch - work with directory patches

The zdir_patch class works with one patch, which says "create this file" or "delete this file" (referring to a zfile item each time).

This is the class interface:

//  Create new patch
CZMQ_EXPORT zdir_patch_t *
    zdir_patch_new (const char *path, zfile_t *file,
                    zdir_patch_op_t op, const char *alias);

//  Destroy a patch
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_patch_destroy (zdir_patch_t **self_p);

//  Create copy of a patch. If the patch is null, or memory was exhausted,
//  returns null.
CZMQ_EXPORT zdir_patch_t *
    zdir_patch_dup (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Return patch file directory path
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zdir_patch_path (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Return patch file item
CZMQ_EXPORT zfile_t *
    zdir_patch_file (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Return operation
CZMQ_EXPORT zdir_patch_op_t
    zdir_patch_op (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Return patch virtual file path
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zdir_patch_vpath (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Calculate hash digest for file (create only)
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_patch_digest_set (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Return hash digest for patch file 
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zdir_patch_digest (zdir_patch_t *self);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zdir_patch_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

zfile_t *file = zfile_new (".", "bilbo");
assert (file);
zdir_patch_t *patch = zdir_patch_new (".", file, patch_create, "/");
assert (patch);
zfile_destroy (&file);

file = zdir_patch_file (patch);
assert (file);
assert (streq (zfile_filename (file, "."), "bilbo"));
assert (streq (zdir_patch_vpath (patch), "/bilbo"));
zdir_patch_destroy (&patch);

zfile - provides methods to work with files in a portable fashion.

The zfile class provides methods to work with disk files. A file object provides the modified date, current size, and type of the file. You can create a file object for a filename that does not yet exist. To read or write data from the file, use the input and output methods, and then read and write chunks. The output method lets you both read and write chunks, at any offset. Finally, this class provides portable symbolic links. If a filename ends in ".ln", the first line of text in the file is read, and used as the underlying file for read/write operations. This lets you manipulate (e.g.) copy symbolic links without copying the perhaps very large files they point to.

This class is a new API, deprecating the old zfile class (which still exists but is implemented in zsys now).

This is the class interface:

//  If file exists, populates properties. CZMQ supports portable symbolic
//  links, which are files with the extension ".ln". A symbolic link is a
//  text file containing one line, the filename of a target file. Reading
//  data from the symbolic link actually reads from the target file. Path
//  may be NULL, in which case it is not used.
CZMQ_EXPORT zfile_t *
    zfile_new (const char *path, const char *name);

//  Destroy a file item
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zfile_destroy (zfile_t **self_p);

//  Duplicate a file item, returns a newly constructed item. If the file
//  is null, or memory was exhausted, returns null.
CZMQ_EXPORT zfile_t *
    zfile_dup (zfile_t *self);

//  Return file name, remove path if provided
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zfile_filename (zfile_t *self, const char *path);

//  Refresh file properties from disk; this is not done automatically
//  on access methods, otherwise it is not possible to compare directory
//  snapshots.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zfile_restat (zfile_t *self);

//  Return when the file was last modified. If you want this to reflect the
//  current situation, call zfile_restat before checking this property.

//  Return true if the file is a regular file. If you want this to reflect
//  any external changes, call zfile_restat before checking this property.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zfile_is_regular (zfile_t *self);

//  Return true if the file is readable by this process. If you want this to
//  reflect any external changes, call zfile_restat before checking this
//  property.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zfile_is_readable (zfile_t *self);

//  Return true if the file is writeable by this process. If you want this
//  to reflect any external changes, call zfile_restat before checking this
//  property.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool

//  Check if file has stopped changing and can be safely processed.
//  Updates the file statistics from disk at every call.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zfile_is_stable (zfile_t *self);

//  Return true if the file was changed on disk since the zfile_t object
//  was created, or the last zfile_restat() call made on it.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zfile_has_changed (zfile_t *self);

//  Remove the file from disk
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zfile_remove (zfile_t *self);

//  Open file for reading
//  Returns 0 if OK, -1 if not found or not accessible
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zfile_input (zfile_t *self);

//  Open file for writing, creating directory if needed
//  File is created if necessary; chunks can be written to file at any
//  location. Returns 0 if OK, -1 if error.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zfile_output (zfile_t *self);

//  Read chunk from file at specified position. If this was the last chunk,
//  sets self->eof. Returns a null chunk in case of error.
CZMQ_EXPORT zchunk_t *

zframe - working with single message frames

The zframe class provides methods to send and receive single message frames across ØMQ sockets. A 'frame' corresponds to one zmq_msg_t. When you read a frame from a socket, the zframe_more() method indicates if the frame is part of an unfinished multipart message. The zframe_send method normally destroys the frame, but with the ZFRAME_REUSE flag, you can send the same frame many times. Frames are binary, and this class has no special support for text data.

This is the class interface:

#define ZFRAME_MORE     1
#define ZFRAME_REUSE    2
#define ZFRAME_DONTWAIT 4

//  Create a new frame with optional size, and optional data
CZMQ_EXPORT zframe_t *

    zframe_destroy (zframe_t **self_p);

//  Receive frame from socket, returns zframe_t object or NULL if the recv
//  was interrupted. Does a blocking recv, if you want to not block then use
//  zframe_recv_nowait().
CZMQ_EXPORT zframe_t *
    zframe_recv (void *source);

// Send a frame to a socket, destroy frame after sending.
// Return -1 on error, 0 on success.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zframe_send (zframe_t **self_p, void *dest, int flags);

//  Return number of bytes in frame data
CZMQ_EXPORT size_t
    zframe_size (zframe_t *self);

//  Return address of frame data

    zframe_data (zframe_t *self);

//  Create a new frame that duplicates an existing frame. If frame is null,
//  or memory was exhausted, returns null.
CZMQ_EXPORT zframe_t *

//  Return frame MORE indicator (1 or 0), set when reading frame from socket
//  or by the zframe_set_more() method
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zframe_more (zframe_t *self);

//  Set frame MORE indicator (1 or 0). Note this is NOT used when sending 
//  frame to socket, you have to specify flag explicitly.
CZMQ_EXPORT void

zgossip - decentralized configuration management

Implements a gossip protocol for decentralized configuration management. Your applications nodes form a loosely connected network (which can have cycles), and publish name/value tuples. Each node re-distributes the new tuples it receives, so that the entire network eventually achieves a consistent state. The current design does not expire tuples.

Provides these commands (sent as multipart strings to the actor):

  • BIND endpoint -- binds the gossip service to specified endpoint
  • PORT -- returns the last TCP port, if any, used for binding
  • CONFIGURE configfile -- load configuration from specified file
  • SET configpath value -- set configuration path = value
  • CONNECT endpoint -- connect the gossip service to the specified peer
  • PUBLISH key value -- publish a key/value pair to the gossip cluster
  • STATUS -- return number of key/value pairs held by gossip service

Returns these messages:

  • PORT number -- reply to PORT command
  • STATUS number -- reply to STATUS command
  • DELIVER key value -- new tuple delivered from network

The gossip protocol distributes information around a loosely-connected network of gossip services. The information consists of name/value pairs published by applications at any point in the network. The goal of the gossip protocol is to create eventual consistency between all the using applications.

The name/value pairs (tuples) can be used for configuration data, for status updates, for presence, or for discovery. When used for discovery, the gossip protocol works as an alternative to e.g. UDP beaconing.

The gossip network consists of a set of loosely-coupled nodes that exchange tuples. Nodes can be connected across arbitrary transports, so the gossip network can have nodes that communicate over inproc, over IPC, and/or over TCP, at the same time.

Each node runs the same stack, which is a server-client hybrid using a modified Harmony pattern (from Chapter 8 of the Guide): http://zguide.zeromq.org/page:all#True-Peer-Connectivity-Harmony-Pattern

Each node provides a ROUTER socket that accepts client connections on an key defined by the application via a BIND command. The state machine for these connections is in zgossip.xml, and the generated code is in zgossip_engine.inc.

Each node additionally creates outbound connections via DEALER sockets to a set of servers ("remotes"), and under control of the calling app, which sends CONNECT commands for each configured remote.

The messages between client and server are defined in zgossip_msg.xml. We built this stack using the zeromq/zproto toolkit.

To join the gossip network, a node connects to one or more peers. Each peer acts as a forwarder. This loosely-coupled network can scale to thousands of nodes. However the gossip protocol is NOT designed to be efficient, and should not be used for application data, as the same tuples may be sent many times across the network.

The basic logic of the gossip service is to accept PUBLISH messages from its owning application, and to forward these to every remote, and every client it talks to. When a node gets a duplicate tuple, it throws it away. When a node gets a new tuple, it stores it, and fowards it as just described. At any point the application can access the node's set of tuples.

At present there is no way to expire tuples from the network.

The assumptions in this design are:

  • The data set is slow-changing. Thus, the cost of the gossip protocol is irrelevant with respect to other traffic.

This is the class interface:

//  To work with zgossip, use the CZMQ zactor API:
//
//  Create new zgossip instance, passing logging prefix:
//
//      zactor_t *zgossip = zactor_new (zgossip, "myname");
//  
//  Destroy zgossip instance
//
//      zactor_destroy (&zgossip);
//  
//  Enable verbose logging of commands and activity:
//
//      zstr_send (zgossip, "VERBOSE");
//
//  Bind zgossip to specified endpoint. TCP endpoints may specify
//  the port number as "*" to aquire an ephemeral port:
//
//      zstr_sendx (zgossip, "BIND", endpoint, NULL);
//
//  Return assigned port number, specifically when BIND was done using an
//  an ephemeral port:

//      char *command, *port_str;
//      zstr_recvx (zgossip, &command, &port_str, NULL);
//      assert (streq (command, "PORT"));

//  Specify configuration file to load, overwriting any previous loaded

//
//      zstr_sendx (zgossip, "CONFIGURE", filename, NULL);
//
//  Set configuration path value:
//
//      zstr_sendx (zgossip, "SET", path, value, NULL);
//    
//  Send zmsg_t instance to zgossip:
//
//      zactor_send (zgossip, &msg);
//
//  Receive zmsg_t instance from zgossip:

zhash - generic type-free hash container

zhash is an expandable hash table container.

The hash table always has a size that is prime and roughly doubles its size when 75% full. In case of hash collisions items are chained in a linked list. The hash table size is increased slightly (up to 5 times before roughly doubling the size) when an overly long chain (between 1 and 63 items depending on table size) is detected.

This is the class interface:

//  Callback function for zhash_freefn method
typedef void (zhash_free_fn) (void *data);

//  Callback function for hashing keys
typedef size_t (zhash_hash_fn) (const void *key);

//  Create a new, empty hash container
CZMQ_EXPORT zhash_t *
    zhash_new (void);

//  Destroy a hash container and all items in it
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zhash_destroy (zhash_t **self_p);

//  Insert item into hash table with specified key and item.
//  If key is already present returns -1 and leaves existing item unchanged
//  Returns 0 on success.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zhash_insert (zhash_t *self, const void *key, void *item);

//  Update or insert item into hash table with specified key and item. If the
//  key is already present, destroys old item and inserts new one. If you set
//  a container item destructor, this is called on the old value. If the key

//  new item.
CZMQ_EXPORT void

ziflist - List of network interfaces available on system

The ziflist class takes a snapshot of the network interfaces that the system currently supports (this can change arbitrarily, especially on mobile devices). The caller can then access the network interface information using an iterator that works like zlist. Only stores those interfaces with broadcast capability, and ignores the loopback interface.

This is the class interface:

//  Get a list of network interfaces currently defined on the system
CZMQ_EXPORT ziflist_t *
    ziflist_new (void);

//  Destroy a ziflist instance
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    ziflist_destroy (ziflist_t **self_p);

//  Reload network interfaces from system
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    ziflist_reload (ziflist_t *self);

//  Return the number of network interfaces on system
CZMQ_EXPORT size_t
    ziflist_size (ziflist_t *self);

//  Get first network interface, return NULL if there are none
CZMQ_EXPORT const char *
    ziflist_first (ziflist_t *self);

//  Get next network interface, return NULL if we hit the last one
CZMQ_EXPORT const char *
    ziflist_next (ziflist_t *self);

//  Return the current interface IP address as a printable string
CZMQ_EXPORT const char *
    ziflist_address (ziflist_t *self);

//  Return the current interface broadcast address as a printable string
CZMQ_EXPORT const char *
    ziflist_broadcast (ziflist_t *self);

//  Return the current interface network mask as a printable string
CZMQ_EXPORT const char *
    ziflist_netmask (ziflist_t *self);

//  Selftest for this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    ziflist_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

ziflist_t *iflist = ziflist_new ();
assert (iflist);
size_t items = ziflist_size (iflist);

if (verbose) {
    printf ("ziflist: interfaces=%zu\n", ziflist_size (iflist));
    const char *name = ziflist_first (iflist);
    while (name) {

                name, ziflist_address (iflist), ziflist_netmask (iflist), ziflist_broadcast (iflist));
        name = ziflist_next (iflist);
    }
}
ziflist_reload (iflist);
assert (items == ziflist_size (iflist));
ziflist_destroy (&iflist);

zlist - generic type-free list container

Provides a generic container implementing a fast singly-linked list. You can use this to construct multi-dimensional lists, and other structures together with other generic containers like zhash.

To iterate through a list, use zlist_first to get the first item, then loop while not null, and do zlist_next at the end of each iteration.

This is the class interface:

zloop - event-driven reactor

The zloop class provides an event-driven reactor pattern. The reactor handles zmq_pollitem_t items (pollers or writers, sockets or fds), and once-off or repeated timers. Its resolution is 1 msec. It uses a tickless timer to reduce CPU interrupts in inactive processes.

This is the class interface:

//  Callback function for reactor socket activity
typedef int (zloop_reader_fn) (zloop_t *loop, zsock_t *reader, void *arg);

//  Callback function for reactor events (low-level)
typedef int (zloop_fn) (zloop_t *loop, zmq_pollitem_t *item, void *arg);

// Callback for reactor timer events
typedef int (zloop_timer_fn) (zloop_t *loop, int timer_id, void *arg);

//  Create a new zloop reactor
CZMQ_EXPORT zloop_t *
    zloop_new (void);

//  Destroy a reactor
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zloop_destroy (zloop_t **self_p);

//  Register socket reader with the reactor. When the reader has messages,
//  the reactor will call the handler, passing the arg. Returns 0 if OK, -1
//  if there was an error. If you register the same socket more than once,
//  each instance will invoke its corresponding handler.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zloop_reader (zloop_t *self, zsock_t *sock, zloop_reader_fn handler, void *arg);

//  Cancel a socket reader from the reactor. If multiple readers exist for
//  same socket, cancels ALL of them.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zloop_reader_end (zloop_t *self, zsock_t *sock);

//  Configure a registered reader to ignore errors. If you do not set this,
//  then readers that have errors are removed from the reactor silently.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zloop_reader_set_tolerant (zloop_t *self, zsock_t *sock);

//  Register low-level libzmq pollitem with the reactor. When the pollitem
//  is ready, will call the handler, passing the arg. Returns 0 if OK, -1
//  if there was an error. If you register the pollitem more than once, each
//  instance will invoke its corresponding handler. A pollitem with
//  socket=NULL and fd=0 means 'poll on FD zero'.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zloop_poller (zloop_t *self, zmq_pollitem_t *item, zloop_fn handler, void *arg);

//  Cancel a pollitem from the reactor, specified by socket or FD. If both
//  are specified, uses only socket. If multiple poll items exist for same
//  socket/FD, cancels ALL of them.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zloop_poller_end (zloop_t *self, zmq_pollitem_t *item);

//  Configure a registered poller to ignore errors. If you do not set this,

CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zloop_timer (zloop_t *self, size_t delay, size_t times, zloop_timer_fn handler, void *arg);

//  Cancel a specific timer identified by a specific timer_id (as returned by

CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zloop_set_verbose (zloop_t *self, bool verbose);

//  Start the reactor. Takes control of the thread and returns when the ØMQ
//  context is terminated or the process is interrupted, or any event handler

zmonitor - socket event monitor

The zmonitor actor provides an API for obtaining socket events such as connected, listen, disconnected, etc. Socket events are only available for sockets connecting or bound to ipc:// and tcp:// endpoints.

This class wraps the ZMQ socket monitor API, see zmq_socket_monitor for details. Works on all versions of libzmq from 3.2 onwards. This class replaces zproxy_v2, and is meant for applications that use the CZMQ v3 API (meaning, zsock).

This is the class interface:

//  Create new zmonitor actor instance to monitor a zsock_t socket:
//
//      zactor_t *monitor = zactor_new (zmonitor, mysocket);
//
//  Destroy zmonitor instance.
//
//      zactor_destroy (&monitor);
//
//  Enable verbose logging of commands and activity.
//
//      zstr_send (monitor, "VERBOSE");
//
//  Listen to monitor event type (zero or types, ending in NULL):
//      zstr_sendx (monitor, "LISTEN", type, ..., NULL);
//  
//      Events:
//      CONNECTED
//      CONNECT_DELAYED
//      CONNECT_RETRIED
//      LISTENING
//      BIND_FAILED
//      ACCEPTED
//      ACCEPT_FAILED
//      CLOSED
//      CLOSE_FAILED
//      DISCONNECTED
//      MONITOR_STOPPED
//      ALL
//
//  Start monitor; after this, any further LISTEN commands are ignored.
//
//      zstr_send (monitor, "START");
//      zsock_wait (monitor);
//
//  Receive next monitor event:
//
//      zmsg_t *msg = zmsg_recv (monitor);
//
//  This is the zmonitor constructor as a zactor_fn; the argument can be
//  a zactor_t, zsock_t, or libzmq void * socket:
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmonitor (zsock_t *pipe, void *sock);

//  Selftest
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmonitor_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

zmsg - working with multipart messages

The zmsg class provides methods to send and receive multipart messages across ØMQ sockets. This class provides a list-like container interface, with methods to work with the overall container. zmsg_t messages are composed of zero or more zframe_t frames.

This is the class interface:

//  Create a new empty message object
CZMQ_EXPORT zmsg_t *
    zmsg_new (void);

//  Destroy a message object and all frames it contains
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmsg_destroy (zmsg_t **self_p);

//  Receive message from socket, returns zmsg_t object or NULL if the recv
//  was interrupted. Does a blocking recv. If you want to not block then use

//  before receiving.
CZMQ_EXPORT zmsg_t *
    zmsg_recv (void *source);

//  Send message to destination socket, and destroy the message after sending
//  it successfully. If the message has no frames, sends nothing but destroys
//  the message anyhow. Nullifies the caller's reference to the message (as
//  it is a destructor).
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zmsg_send (zmsg_t **self_p, void *dest);

//  Return size of message, i.e. number of frames (0 or more).

CZMQ_EXPORT size_t
    zmsg_content_size (zmsg_t *self);

//  Push frame to the front of the message, i.e. before all other frames.
//  Message takes ownership of frame, will destroy it when message is sent.
//  Returns 0 on success, -1 on error. Deprecates zmsg_push, which did not
//  nullify the caller's frame reference.
CZMQ_EXPORT int

//  Add frame to the end of the message, i.e. after all other frames.

zpoller - trivial socket poller class

The zpoller class provides a minimalist interface to ZeroMQ's zmq_poll API, for the very common case of reading from a number of sockets. It does not provide polling for output, nor polling on file handles. If you need either of these, use the zmq_poll API directly.

This is the class interface:

//  Create new poller; the reader can be a libzmq socket (void *), a zsock_t
//  instance, or a zactor_t instance.
CZMQ_EXPORT zpoller_t *
    zpoller_new (void *reader, ...);

//  Destroy a poller
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zpoller_destroy (zpoller_t **self_p);

//  Add a reader to be polled. Returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure. The reader may
//  be a libzmq void * socket, a zsock_t instance, or a zactor_t instance.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zpoller_add (zpoller_t *self, void *reader);

//  Remove a reader from the poller; returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure. The
//  reader may be a libzmq void * socket, a zsock_t instance, or a zactor_t
//  instance.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zpoller_remove (zpoller_t *self, void *reader);

//  Poll the registered readers for I/O, return first reader that has input.
//  The reader will be a libzmq void * socket, or a zsock_t or zactor_t
//  instance as specified in zpoller_new/zpoller_add. The order that
//  sockets are defined in the poll list affects their priority. If you
//  need a balanced poll, use the low level zmq_poll method directly. If
//  the poll call was interrupted (SIGINT), or the ZMQ context was
//  destroyed, or the timeout expired, returns NULL. You can test the
//  actual exit condition by calling zpoller_expired () and
//  zpoller_terminated (). The timeout is in msec.
CZMQ_EXPORT void *
    zpoller_wait (zpoller_t *self, int timeout);

//  Return true if the last zpoller_wait () call ended because the timeout
//  expired, without any error.
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zpoller_expired (zpoller_t *self);

//  Return true if the last zpoller_wait () call ended because the process
//  was interrupted, or the parent context was destroyed.

zproxy - run a steerable proxy in the background

A zproxy actor switches messages between a frontend and a backend socket. It acts much like the zmq_proxy_steerable method, though it makes benefit of CZMQ's facilities, to be somewhat simpler to set-up.

This class replaces zproxy_v2, and is meant for applications that use the CZMQ v3 API (meaning, zsock).

This is the class interface:

//  Create new zproxy actor instance. The proxy switches messages between
//  a frontend socket and a backend socket; use the FRONTEND and BACKEND
//  commands to configure these:
//
//      zactor_t *proxy = zactor_new (zproxy, NULL);
//
//  Destroy zproxy instance. This destroys the two sockets and stops any
//  message flow between them:
//
//      zactor_destroy (&proxy);
//
//  Note that all zproxy commands are synchronous, so your application always
//  waits for a signal from the actor after each command.
//
//  Enable verbose logging of commands and activity:
//
//      zstr_send (proxy, "VERBOSE");
//      zsock_wait (proxy);
//
//  Specify frontend socket type -- see zsock_type_str () -- and attach to
//  endpoints, see zsock_attach (). Note that a proxy socket is always
//  serverish:
//
//      zstr_sendx (proxy, "FRONTEND", "XSUB", endpoints, NULL);
//      zsock_wait (proxy);
//
//  Specify backend socket type -- see zsock_type_str () -- and attach to
//  endpoints, see zsock_attach (). Note that a proxy socket is always
//  serverish:
//
//      zstr_sendx (proxy, "BACKEND", "XPUB", endpoints, NULL);
//      zsock_wait (proxy);
//
//  Capture all proxied messages; these are delivered to the application
//  via an inproc PULL socket that you have already bound to the specified
//  endpoint:
//
//      zstr_sendx (proxy, "CAPTURE", endpoint, NULL);
//      zsock_wait (proxy);
//
//  Pause the proxy. A paused proxy will cease processing messages, causing
//  them to be queued up and potentially hit the high-water mark on the
//  frontend or backend socket, causing messages to be dropped, or writing
//  applications to block:
//
//      zstr_sendx (proxy, "PAUSE", NULL);
//      zsock_wait (proxy);
//
//  Resume the proxy. Note that the proxy starts automatically as soon as it
//  has a properly attached frontend and backend socket:
//
//      zstr_sendx (proxy, "RESUME", NULL);
//      zsock_wait (proxy);
//
//  This is the zproxy constructor as a zactor_fn; the argument is a
//  character string specifying frontend and backend socket types as two
//  uppercase strings separated by a hyphen:
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zproxy (zsock_t *pipe, void *unused);

zring - generic type-free doubly linked ring container

Provides a generic "ring" container, which mixes a doubly-linked list with a hash table to provide both ordered and direct keyed access to items. The zring class is more complex and powerful than zlist, which is considered a 'basic' list container. This container provides hooks for duplicator, comparator, and destructor functions. These tie into CZMQ and standard C semantics, so e.g. for string items you can use strdup, strcmp, and zstr_free. To store custom objects, define your own duplicator and comparator, and use the standard object destructor.

This is the class interface:

//  Create a new ring container (a ring is a doubly-linked ring)
CZMQ_EXPORT zring_t *
    zring_new (void);

//  Destroy a ring container
CZMQ_EXPORT void

//  Leaves cursor at newly inserted item.

    zring_prepend (zring_t *self, void *item);

//  Append an item to the end of the ring, return 0 if OK, else -1.
//  Leaves cursor at newly inserted item.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zring_append (zring_t *self, void *item);

//  Append an item to the end of the ring, and insert into the ring
//  dictionary, so that you can find the item rapidly using zring_lookup.
//  If you do a lot of item searches, this is faster than zring_find,
//  which is at worst an O(N) operation. When items leave the ring, they
//  are always removed from the dictionary. Returns 0 on success, -1 if
//  the key already existed in the dictionary, or heap memory ran out.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zring_insert (zring_t *self, const void *key, void *item);

//  Find an item in the ring, looking first at the cursor, and then from the
//  first to last item. If a comparator was set on container, calls this to
//  compare each item in the ring with the supplied target item. If none

//  found, leaves the cursor at the found item. Returns the item if found,

//  the next item, if any, and returns the item. Else, returns null.
CZMQ_EXPORT void *
    zring_detach (zring_t *self, void *item);

//  Remove an item from the ring, and destroy it, if the item destructor is
//  set. Searches the ring for the item, always starting with the cursor, if

CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zring_remove (zring_t *self, void *item);

//  Search the ring dictionary for an item, by key. If the item is in the

zstr - sending and receiving strings

The zstr class provides utility functions for sending and receiving C strings across ØMQ sockets. It sends strings without a terminating null, and appends a null byte on received strings. This class is for simple message sending.

   Memory                       Wire
   +-------------+---+          +---+-------------+

Send | S t r i n g | 0 | ----> | 6 | S t r i n g | +-------------+---+ +---+-------------+

   Wire                         Heap
   +---+-------------+          +-------------+---+

Recv | 6 | S t r i n g | ----> | S t r i n g | 0 | +---+-------------+ +-------------+---+

This is the class interface:

//  Receive C string from socket. Caller must free returned string using
//  zstr_free(). Returns NULL if the context is being terminated or the
//  process was interrupted.
CZMQ_EXPORT char *
    zstr_recv (void *source);

//  Send a C string to a socket, as a frame. The string is sent without
//  trailing null byte; to read this you can use zstr_recv, or a similar
//  method that adds a null terminator on the received string. String
//  may be NULL, which is sent as "".
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zstr_send (void *dest, const char *string);

//  Send a C string to a socket, as zstr_send(), with a MORE flag, so that
//  you can send further strings in the same multi-part message.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zstr_sendm (void *dest, const char *string);

//  Send a formatted string to a socket. Note that you should NOT use
//  user-supplied strings in the format (they may contain '%' which
//  will create security holes).
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zstr_sendf (void *dest, const char *format, ...);

//  Send a formatted string to a socket, as for zstr_sendf(), with a
//  MORE flag, so that you can send further strings in the same multi-part
//  message.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zstr_sendfm (void *dest, const char *format, ...);

//  Send a series of strings (until NULL) as multipart data
//  Returns 0 if the strings could be sent OK, or -1 on error.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zstr_sendx (void *dest, const char *string, ...);

//  Receive a series of strings (until NULL) from multipart data.
//  Each string is allocated and filled with string data; if there
//  are not enough frames, unallocated strings are set to NULL.
//  Returns -1 if the message could not be read, else returns the
//  number of strings filled, zero or more. Free each returned string
//  using zstr_free(). If not enough strings are provided, remaining
//  multipart frames in the message are dropped.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zstr_recvx (void *source, char **string_p, ...);

//  Free a provided string, and nullify the parent pointer. Safe to call on
//  a null pointer.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zstr_free (char **string_p);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zstr_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

//  Create two PAIR sockets and connect over inproc
zsock_t *output = zsock_new_pair ("@inproc://zstr.test");
assert (output);
zsock_t *input = zsock_new_pair (">inproc://zstr.test");
assert (input);

//  Send ten strings, five strings with MORE flag and then END
int string_nbr;
for (string_nbr = 0; string_nbr < 10; string_nbr++)
    zstr_sendf (output, "this is string %d", string_nbr);
zstr_sendx (output, "This", "is", "almost", "the", "very", "END", NULL);

//  Read and count until we receive END
string_nbr = 0;
for (string_nbr = 0;; string_nbr++) {
    char *string = zstr_recv (input);
    assert (string);
    if (streq (string, "END")) {
        zstr_free (&string);
        break;
    }
    zstr_free (&string);
}
assert (string_nbr == 15);

zsock_destroy (&input);
zsock_destroy (&output);

zsys - system-level methods

The zsys class provides a portable wrapper for system calls. We collect them here to reduce the number of weird #ifdefs in other classes. As far as possible, the bulk of CZMQ classes are fully portable.

This is the class interface:

#define UDP_FRAME_MAX   255         //  Max size of UDP frame

//  Callback for interrupt signal handler
typedef void (zsys_handler_fn) (int signal_value);

//  Initialize CZMQ zsys layer; this happens automatically when you create
//  a socket or an actor; however this call lets you force initialization
//  earlier, so e.g. logging is properly set-up before you start working.
//  Not threadsafe, so call only from main thread. Safe to call multiple
//  times. Returns global CZMQ context.
CZMQ_EXPORT void *
    zsys_init (void);

//  Optionally shut down the CZMQ zsys layer; this normally happens automatically
//  when the process exits; however this call lets you force a shutdown
//  earlier, avoiding any potential problems with atexit() ordering, especially
//  with Windows dlls.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zsys_shutdown (void);

//  Get a new ZMQ socket, automagically creating a ZMQ context if this is
//  the first time. Caller is responsible for destroying the ZMQ socket
//  before process exits, to avoid a ZMQ deadlock. Note: you should not use
//  this method in CZMQ apps, use zsock_new() instead.
//  *** This is for CZMQ internal use only and may change arbitrarily ***
CZMQ_EXPORT void *
    zsys_socket (int type, const char *filename, size_t line_nbr);

CZMQ_EXPORT zsock_t *
    zsys_create_pipe (zsock_t **backend_p);

//  Set interrupt handler; this saves the default handlers so that a
//  zsys_handler_reset () can restore them. If you call this multiple times
//  then the last handler will take affect. If handler_fn is NULL, disables
//  default SIGINT/SIGTERM handling in CZMQ.
CZMQ_EXPORT void

//  Reset interrupt handler, call this at exit if needed
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zsys_handler_reset (void);

//  zsys_interrupted. Idempotent; safe to call multiple times.
//  *** This is for CZMQ internal use only and may change arbitrarily ***
CZMQ_EXPORT void

//  Return 1 if file exists, else zero
CZMQ_EXPORT bool
    zsys_file_exists (const char *filename);

//  Return size of file, or -1 if not found
CZMQ_EXPORT ssize_t
    zsys_file_size (const char *filename);

//  Return file modification time. Returns 0 if the file does not exist.
CZMQ_EXPORT time_t
    zsys_file_modified (const char *filename);

//  Return file mode; provides at least support for the POSIX S_ISREG(m)
//  and S_ISDIR(m) macros and the S_IRUSR and S_IWUSR bits, on all boxes.
CZMQ_EXPORT mode_t
    zsys_file_mode (const char *filename);

//  Delete file. Does not complain if the file is absent
CZMQ_EXPORT int

API v2 Summary

zauth_v2 - authentication for ZeroMQ servers (deprecated)

A zauth object takes over authentication for all incoming connections in its context.

This class is deprecated in CZMQ v3; it works together with zctx, zsocket, and other deprecated V2 classes. New applications should use the V3 zauth interface, based on zactor, together with the zsock class for sockets.

This is the class interface:

//  an error during initialization, returns NULL.

zctx - working with ØMQ contexts (deprecated)

The zctx class wraps ØMQ contexts. It manages open sockets in the context and automatically closes these before terminating the context. It provides a simple way to set the linger timeout on sockets, and configure contexts for number of I/O threads. Sets-up signal (interrupt) handling for the process.

The zctx class has these main features:

  • Tracks all open sockets and automatically closes them before calling zmq_term(). This avoids an infinite wait on open sockets.

  • Automatically configures sockets with a ZMQ_LINGER timeout you can define, and which defaults to zero. The default behavior of zctx is therefore like ØMQ/2.0, immediate termination with loss of any pending messages. You can set any linger timeout you like by calling the zctx_set_linger() method.

  • Moves the iothreads configuration to a separate method, so that default usage is 1 I/O thread. Lets you configure this value.

  • Sets up signal (SIGINT and SIGTERM) handling so that blocking calls such as zmq_recv() and zmq_poll() will return when the user presses Ctrl-C.

NOTE: this class is deprecated in favor of zsock, which does not expose contexts in the API at all. All zsock instances use the same global context.

This is the class interface:

//  Create new context, returns context object, replaces zmq_init
CZMQ_EXPORT zctx_t *
    zctx_new (void);

//  Destroy context and all sockets in it, replaces zmq_term

//  Create new shadow context, returns context object
CZMQ_EXPORT zctx_t *
    zctx_shadow (zctx_t *self);
//  Raise default I/O threads from 1, for crazy heavy applications
//  The rule of thumb is one I/O thread per gigabyte of traffic in
//  or out. Call this method before creating any sockets on the context,
//  or calling zctx_shadow, or the setting will have no effect.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zctx_set_iothreads (zctx_t *self, int iothreads);

//  Set msecs to flush sockets when closing them, see the ZMQ_LINGER
//  man page section for more details. By default, set to zero, so
//  any in-transit messages are discarded when you destroy a socket or
//  a context.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zctx_set_linger (zctx_t *self, int linger);

//  Set initial high-water mark for inter-thread pipe sockets. Note that
//  this setting is separate from the default for normal sockets. You 
//  should change the default for pipe sockets *with care*. Too low values
//  will cause blocked threads, and an infinite setting can cause memory
//  exhaustion. The default, no matter the underlying ZeroMQ version, is
//  1,000.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zctx_set_pipehwm (zctx_t *self, int pipehwm);

//  Set initial send HWM for all new normal sockets created in context.
//  You can set this per-socket after the socket is created.

zmonitor_v2 - socket event monitor (deprecated)

The zmonitor class provides an API for obtaining socket events such as connected, listen, disconnected, etc. Socket events are only available for sockets connecting or bound to ipc:// and tcp:// endpoints. This class wraps the ZMQ socket monitor API, see zmq_socket_monitor for details. Currently this class requires libzmq v4.0 or later and is empty on older versions of libzmq.

This class is deprecated in CZMQ v3; it works together with zctx, zsocket, and other deprecated V2 classes. New applications should use the V3 zmonitor interface, based on zactor, together with the zsock class for sockets.

This is the class interface:

//  This code needs backporting to work with ZMQ v3.2
#if (ZMQ_VERSION_MAJOR == 4)

//  Create a new socket monitor
CZMQ_EXPORT zmonitor_t *
    zmonitor_new (zctx_t *ctx, void *socket, int events);

//  Destroy a socket monitor
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmonitor_destroy (zmonitor_t **self_p);

//  Receive a status message from the monitor; if no message arrives within
//  500 msec, or the call was interrupted, returns NULL.

zmutex - working with mutexes (deprecated)

The zmutex class provides a portable wrapper for mutexes. Please do not use this class to do multi-threading. It is for the rare case where you absolutely need thread-safe global state. This should happen in system code only. DO NOT USE THIS TO SHARE SOCKETS BETWEEN THREADS, OR DARK THINGS WILL HAPPEN TO YOUR CODE.

This is the class interface:

//  Create a new mutex container
CZMQ_EXPORT zmutex_t *
    zmutex_new (void);

//  Destroy a mutex container
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmutex_destroy (zmutex_t **self_p);

//  Lock mutex
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmutex_lock (zmutex_t *self);

//  Unlock mutex
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmutex_unlock (zmutex_t *self);

//  Try to lock mutex
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zmutex_try_lock (zmutex_t *self);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zmutex_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

zmutex_t *mutex = zmutex_new ();
assert (mutex);
zmutex_lock (mutex);
zmutex_unlock (mutex);
zmutex_destroy (&mutex);

zproxy_v2 - run a steerable proxy in the background (deprecated)

The zproxy class provides an equivalent to the ZMQ steerable proxy, on all versions of ZeroMQ.

This class is deprecated in CZMQ v3; it works together with zctx, zsocket, and other deprecated V2 classes. New applications should use the V3 zproxy interface, based on zactor, together with the zsock class for sockets.

This is the class interface:

//  Constructor
//  Create a new zproxy object. You must create the frontend and backend
//  sockets, configure them, and connect or bind them, before you pass them
//  to the constructor. Do NOT use the sockets again, after passing them to
//  this method.
CZMQ_EXPORT zproxy_t *
    zproxy_new (zctx_t *ctx, void *frontend, void *backend);

//  Destructor
//  Destroy a zproxy object; note this first stops the proxy.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zproxy_destroy (zproxy_t **self_p);

//  Copy all proxied messages to specified endpoint; if this is NULL, any
//  in-progress capturing will be stopped. You must already have bound the
//  endpoint to a PULL socket.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zproxy_capture (zproxy_t *self, const char *endpoint);

//  Pauses a zproxy object; a paused proxy will cease processing messages,
//  causing them to be queued up and potentially hit the high-water mark on
//  the frontend socket, causing messages to be dropped, or writing
//  applications to block.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zproxy_pause (zproxy_t *self);

//  Resume a zproxy object
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zproxy_resume (zproxy_t *self);

// Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zproxy_v2_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

zctx_t *ctx = zctx_new ();
assert (ctx);
void *frontend = zsocket_new (ctx, ZMQ_PULL);
assert (frontend);
int rc = zsocket_bind (frontend, "inproc://frontend");

zsocket - working with ØMQ sockets (deprecated)

The zsocket class provides helper functions for ØMQ sockets. It doesn't wrap the ØMQ socket type, to avoid breaking all libzmq socket-related calls.

This is the class interface:

//  We use this when choosing a port for dynamic binding.

//  must set filters explicitly.

    zsocket_new (zctx_t *self, int type);

//  Destroy a socket within our CZMQ context, replaces zmq_close.
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zsocket_destroy (zctx_t *ctx, void *self);

//  Bind a socket to a formatted endpoint. If the port is specified as
//  '*', binds to any free port from ZSOCKET_DYNFROM to ZSOCKET_DYNTO
//  and returns the actual port number used. Otherwise asserts that the

//  port number if successful.
CZMQ_EXPORT int

zthread - working with system threads (deprecated)

The zthread class wraps OS thread creation. It creates detached threads that look like normal OS threads, or attached threads that share the caller's ØMQ context, and get an inproc pipe to talk back to the parent thread. Detached threads create their own ØMQ contexts as needed. NOTE: this class is deprecated in favor of zactor.

We have several use cases for multiple threads. One is to simulate many processes, so we can test ØMQ designs and flows more easily. Another is to create APIs that can send and receive ØMQ messages in the background.

zthread solves these two use cases separately, using the zthread_new and zthead_fork methods respectively. These methods wrap the native system calls needed to start threads, so your code can remain fully portable.

Detached threads follow the POSIX pthreads API; they accept a void * argument and return a void * result (always NULL in our case).

Attached thread receive a void * argument, a zctx_t context, and a pipe socket. The pipe socket is a PAIR socket that is connected back to the caller. When you call zthread_fork, it returns you a PAIR socket that is the other end of this pipe. Thus attached threads can talk back to their parent threads over the pipe. We use this very heavily when making so-called "asynchronous" APIs, which you can see in the Guide examples like 'clone'.

To recap some rules about threading: do not share sockets between threads or your code will crash. You can migrate a socket from one thread to a child thread, if you stop using it in the parent thread immediately after creating the child thread. If you want to connect sockets over inproc:// they must share the same ØMQ context, i.e. be attached threads. You should always use zthread_fork to create an attached thread; it is not sufficient to pass a zctx_t structure to a detached thread (this will crash).

If you want to communicate over ipc:// or tcp:// you may be sharing the same context, or use separate contexts. Thus, every detached thread usually starts by creating its own zctx_t instance.

This is the class interface:

//  Detached threads follow POSIX pthreads API
typedef void *(zthread_detached_fn) (void *args);

//  Attached threads get context and pipe from parent
typedef void (zthread_attached_fn) (void *args, zctx_t *ctx, void *pipe);

//  Create a detached thread. A detached thread operates autonomously
//  and is used to simulate a separate process. It gets no ctx, and no
//  pipe.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    zthread_new (zthread_detached_fn *thread_fn, void *args);

//  Create an attached thread. An attached thread gets a ctx and a PAIR
//  pipe back to its parent. It must monitor its pipe, and exit if the
//  pipe becomes unreadable. Do not destroy the ctx, the thread does this
//  automatically when it ends.
CZMQ_EXPORT void *
    zthread_fork (zctx_t *ctx, zthread_attached_fn *thread_fn, void *args);

//  Self test of this class
CZMQ_EXPORT void
    zthread_test (bool verbose);

This is the class self test code:

static void *
s_test_detached (void *args)
{
//  Create a socket to check it'll be automatically deleted
zctx_t *ctx = zctx_new ();
assert (ctx);

void *push = zsocket_new (ctx, ZMQ_PUSH);
assert (push);
zctx_destroy (&ctx);
return NULL;
}

static void
s_test_attached (void *args, zctx_t *ctx, void *pipe)
{
//  Create a socket to check it'll be automatically deleted
zsocket_new (ctx, ZMQ_PUSH);
assert (ctx);
//  Wait for our parent to ping us, and pong back
char *ping = zstr_recv (pipe);
assert (ping);
zstr_free (&ping);
zstr_send (pipe, "pong");
}

zctx_t *ctx = zctx_new ();
assert (ctx);
int rc = 0;

//  Create a detached thread, let it run
rc = zthread_new (s_test_detached, NULL);
assert (rc == 0);
zclock_sleep (100);

//  Create an attached thread, check it's safely alive
void *pipe = zthread_fork (ctx, s_test_attached, NULL);
assert (pipe);
zstr_send (pipe, "ping");
char *pong = zstr_recv (pipe);
assert (pong);
assert (streq (pong, "pong"));
zstr_free (&pong);

//  Everything should be cleanly closed now
zctx_destroy (&ctx);

Error Handling

The CZMQ policy is to reduce the error flow to 0/-1 where possible. libzmq still does a lot of errno setting. CZMQ does not do that, as it creates a fuzzy API. Things either work as expected, or they fail, and the application's best strategy is usually to assert on non-zero return codes.

Some older libraries still return plethora of error codes, to indicate different types of failure. This ironically makes both library and application more likely to be buggy. The reason is simply that it needs more code on both sides of the API, and the more code, the more bugs.

The use of black/white error handling fits the CLASS style for APIs where each call is explicit and without side effects of any kind, and where damage is either impossible, or fatal.

The one exception is running out of resources (memory, sockets). In that case, there are two strategies that work, for different types of app. One is to assert, to force better sizing of the machine and/or limits such as max connections. Two is to degrade carefully, e.g. refuse new connections, however that is considerably harder to do correctly and probably unrealistic for most developers.

Some CZMQ methods used to actually assert, e.g. in zsocket_bind, if the action failed, instead of returning -1. That was just closer to the majority case where the action MUST work, or nothing can continue. However there's a small slice of cases where failure means something positive, and for these cases, such calls return -1 on failure. 99% of calling code simply asserts the return value is not -1.

There are a few cases where the return value is overloaded to return -1, 0, or other values. These are somewhat confusing special cases and we aim to eliminate them over time.

The overall goal with this strategy is robustness, and absolute minimal and predictable expression in the code. You can see that it works: the CZMQ code is generally very simple and clear, with a few exceptions of places where people have used their old C style (we fix these over time).

CZMQ Actors

The v2 API had a zthread class that let you create "attached threads" connected to their parent by an inproc:// PIPE socket. In v3 this has been simplified and better wrapped as the zactor class. CZMQ actors are in effect threads with a socket interface. A zactor_t instance works like a socket, and the CZMQ classes that deal with sockets (like zmsg and zpoller) all accept zactor_t references as well as zsock_t and libzmq void * socket handles.

To write an actor, use this template. Note that your actor is a single function "void myname (zsock_t *pipe, void *args)" function:

Under the Hood

Adding a New Class

If you define a new CZMQ class myclass you need to:

  • Write the zmyclass.c and zmyclass.h source files, in src and include respectively.
  • Add a reference documentation to 'doc/zmyclass.txt'.
  • Add myclass to 'project.xmland regenerate files usinggenerate.sh`
  • Add a section to README.txt.

Documentation

Man pages are generated from the class header and source files via the doc/mkman tool, and similar functionality in the gitdown tool (http://github.com/imatix/gitdown). The header file for a class must wrap its interface as follows (example is from include/zclock.h):

//  @interface
//  Sleep for a number of milliseconds
void
    zclock_sleep (int msecs);

//  Return current system clock as milliseconds
int64_t
    zclock_time (void);

//  Self test of this class
int
    zclock_test (Bool verbose);
//  @end

The source file for a class must provide documentation as follows:

/*
@header
...short explanation of class...
@discuss
...longer discussion of how it works...
@end
*/

The source file for a class then provides the self test example as follows:

//  @selftest
int64_t start = zclock_time ();
zclock_sleep (10);
assert ((zclock_time () - start) >= 10);
//  @end

The template for man pages is in doc/mkman.

Development

CZMQ is developed through a test-driven process that guarantees no memory violations or leaks in the code:

  • Modify a class or method.
  • Update the test method for that class.
  • Run the 'selftest' script, which uses the Valgrind memcheck tool.
  • Repeat until perfect.

Porting CZMQ

When you try CZMQ on an OS that it's not been used on (ever, or for a while), you will hit code that does not compile. In some cases the patches are trivial, in other cases (usually when porting to Windows), the work needed to build equivalent functionality may be non-trivial. In any case, the benefit is that once ported, the functionality is available to all applications.

Before attempting to patch code for portability, please read the czmq_prelude.h header file. There are several typical types of changes you may need to make to get functionality working on a specific operating system:

  • Defining typedefs which are missing on that specific compiler: do this in czmq_prelude.h.
  • Defining macros that rename exotic library functions to more conventional names: do this in czmq_prelude.h.
  • Reimplementing specific methods to use a non-standard API: this is typically needed on Windows. Do this in the relevant class, using #ifdefs to properly differentiate code for different platforms.

Hints to Contributors

CZMQ is a nice, neat library, and you may not immediately appreciate why. Read the CLASS style guide please, and write your code to make it indistinguishable from the rest of the code in the library. That is the only real criteria for good style: it's invisible.

Don't include system headers in source files. The right place for these is czmq_prelude.h. If you need to check against configured libraries and/or headers, include platform.h in the source before including czmq.h.

Do read your code after you write it and ask, "Can I make this simpler?" We do use a nice minimalist and yet readable style. Learn it, adopt it, use it.

Before opening a pull request read our contribution guidelines. Thanks!

Code Generation

We generate the zsockopt class using GSL, using a code generator script in scripts/sockopts.gsl. We also generate the project files.
