NAME

globus_types.h -

Common Primitive Types.

SYNOPSIS


#include 'globus_config.h'
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdint.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>

Macros


#define GLOBUS_TRUE 1
True value for globus_bool_t.
#define GLOBUS_FALSE 0
False value for globus_bool_t.
#define GLOBUS_NULL NULL
NULL value.
#define GLOBUS_SUCCESS 0
Generic success result

Most Globus API functions return this value to indicate success, or some error constant or globus_result_t to indicate an error. "
#define GLOBUS_FAILURE -1
Generic failure result

Some Globus API functions without good error handling return this value to indicate some undetermined error occurred. "

Typedefs


typedef size_t globus_size_t
Standard size of memory object

The globus_size_t is the size of a memory object. It is identical to size_t in all cases and doesn't need to be used ever. "
typedef socklen_t globus_socklen_t
Size of a socket length parameter.
typedef unsigned char globus_byte_t
Unsigned byte datatype

This is used for byte-addressable arrays of arbitrary data which is not subject to sign extension. "
typedef int globus_bool_t
Boolean type.
typedef uint32_t globus_result_t

Detailed Description

Common Primitive Types.

Defines the macros and typedefs common to all globus_common components.

Macro Definition Documentation
