Defines a Storage API. This is a simple, all-at-once BLOB storage and retrieval API that is intended for robust long-term storage. Some platforms have different mechanisms for this kind of storage, so this API exists to allow a client application to access this kind of storage.
Note that there can be only one storage record and, thus, a maximum of one open storage record can exist. Attempting to open a second record will result in undefined behavior.
These APIs are NOT expected to be thread-safe, so either call them from a single thread, or perform proper synchronization around all calls.
Well-defined value for an invalid storage record handle.
A handle to an open storage record.
typedef SbStorageRecordPrivate* SbStorageRecord
record, synchronously ensuring that all written data is flushed. This
function performs blocking I/O on the calling thread.
The return value indicates whether the operation succeeded. Storage writes should be as atomic as possible, so the record should either be fully written or deleted (or, even better, untouched).
record: The storage record to close.
record is invalid after this point, and
subsequent calls referring to
record will fail.
bool SbStorageCloseRecord(SbStorageRecord record)
name. The return value
indicates whether the record existed and was successfully deleted. If the record
did not exist or could not be deleted, the function returns
name is NULL, deletes the default storage record for the user, like what
would have been deleted with the previous version of SbStorageDeleteRecord.
This function must not be called while the user's storage record is open. This function performs blocking I/O on the calling thread.
user: The user for whom the record will be deleted.
name: The filesystem-
safe name of the record to open.
bool SbStorageDeleteRecord(SbUser user, const char *name)
Returns the size of
-1 if there is an error. This function
performs blocking I/O on the calling thread.
record: The record to retrieve the size of.
int64_t SbStorageGetRecordSize(SbStorageRecord record)
Returns whether the given storage record handle is valid.
static bool SbStorageIsValidRecord(SbStorageRecord record)
Opens and returns the SbStorageRecord for
name, blocking I/O on
the calling thread until the open is completed. If
user is not a valid
SbUser, the function returns
kSbStorageInvalidRecord. Will return an
SbStorageRecord of size zero if the record does not yet exist. Opening an
SbStorageRecord has undefined behavior.
name is NULL, opens the default storage record for the user, like what
would have been saved with the previous version of SbStorageOpenRecord.
user: The user for which the storage record will be opened.
filesystem-safe name of the record to open.
SbStorageRecord SbStorageOpenRecord(SbUser user, const char *name)
Reads up to
data_size bytes from
record, starting at the beginning of the
record. The function returns the actual number of bytes read, which must be <=
data_size. The function returns
-1 in the event of an error. This function
makes a best-effort to read the entire record, and it performs blocking I/O on
the calling thread until the entire record is read or an error is encountered.
record: The record to be read.
out_data: The data read from the record.
data_size: The amount of data, in bytes, to read.
int64_t SbStorageReadRecord(SbStorageRecord record, char *out_data, int64_t data_size)
Replaces the data in
data_size bytes from
data. This function
always deletes any previous data in that record. The return value indicates
whether the write succeeded. This function makes a best-effort to write the
entire record, and it may perform blocking I/O on the calling thread until the
entire record is written or an error is encountered.
SbStorageWriteRecord() may defer the persistence,
SbStorageReadRecord() is expected to work as expected immediately afterwards,
even without a call to
SbStorageCloseRecord(). The data should be persisted
after a short time, even if there is an unexpected process termination before
SbStorageCloseRecord() is called.
record: The record to be written to.
data: The data to write to the record.
data_size: The amount of
data, in bytes, to write to the record.
bool SbStorageWriteRecord(SbStorageRecord record, const char *data, int64_t data_size)
