The evbuffer API provides an implementation of buffering for use with libevent.
evbuffer_new() allocates and initialises a new evbuffer structure.
evbuffer_free() deallocates the evbuffer structure buf and any referenced storage.
evbuffer_setcb() sets the callback cb to be invoked with argument cbarg when the data in evbuffer buf is modified.
evbuffer_expand() expands the available space in buf to at least datlen bytes.
evbuffer_add() appends a copy of size bytes from buffer data to the end of the evbuffer buf.
evbuffer_add_buffer() moves the data off the src evbuffer and appends it to dst.
evbuffer_add_printf() appends a printf(3) style formatted string specified by fmt to the end of buf.
evbuffer_add_vprintf() appends a vprintf(3) style formatted string specified by fmt with a va_list ap to the end of buf.
evbuffer_drain() deletes size bytes from the beginning of the evbuffer buf.
evbuffer_remove() reads and drains up to datlen bytes from the beginning of the evbuffer buf into data.
evbuffer_write() writes and drains the contents of evbuffer buf to the file descriptor fd.
evbuffer_read() appends up to size bytes on to the end of the evbuffer buf by reading from the file descriptor fd.
evbuffer_find() finds the size length string data in the evbuffer buf.
evbuffer_readline() reads and drains a single line from the evbuffer buf. A line is delimited by "\n", "\r", "\r\n", or "\n\r". It is the responsibility of the caller to free the returned line with free(3).
evbuffer_readln() reads and drains a single line from the evbuffer buf. The length of the line will be stored in read_out on success. It is the responsibility of the caller to free the returned line with free(3). The line delimiter is specified as one of the following:
 
 
Any sequence of newline or carriage return characters.
 
 
A new line optionally preceded by a carriage return.
 
 
A carriage return followed by a new line character.
 
 
A new line character.
EVBUFFER_LENGTH() reports how many bytes are stored in the evbuffer buf.

evbuffer_new() returns a pointer to a newly allocated buffer on success, or NULL on failure and sets errno to indicate the failure.
evbuffer_expand(), evbuffer_add(), and evbuffer_add_buffer() return 0 on success, or -1 on failure and set errno to indicate the failure.
evbuffer_add_printf() and evbuffer_add_vprintf() return the number of bytes added on success, or -1 on failure.
evbuffer_remove() returns the number of bytes read.
evbuffer_write() returns the number of bytes written and drained on success, or -1 on failure and sets errno to indicate the failure.
evbuffer_read() returns the number of bytes appended to the evbuffer on success, 0 on an end of file condition, or -1 on failure and sets errno to indicate the failure.
evbuffer_find() returns a pointer to the start of the string within the evbuffer on success, or NULL on failure.
evbuffer_readline() and evbuffer_readln() return a pointer to the line on success, or NULL on failure.
EVBUFFER_LENGTH() returns the number of bytes available in the evbuffer.
