These are miscellaneous functions which may be useful with the Cdk widget set.
Beep makes an audible beep. The standard curses beep() does not flush the stream, so it will only beep until a force is made. This forces a flush after issuing the beep command. CDKallocStrings Add a new string item to a list. Keep a null pointer on the end so one may use CDKfreeStrings() to deallocate the whole list. The caller is responsible for updating the length of the list. The return value is the updated number of chars used. CDKcountStrings Count the number of items in a null-terminated list of character strings. Return the count. CDKfreeChtypes Free a list of chtype-strings which is terminated by a null pointer. CDKfreeStrings Free a list of character strings which is terminated by a null pointer. Also free list itself. CDKsplitString split the string at each occurrence of separator, returning a pointer to a dynamically allocated array of the pieces. The original string is unmodified. The caller is responsible for freeing the result. baseName returns a pointer to the first character of the filename in the given pathname. The result should be freed by the caller. ceilCDK Return an integer like the math library ceil(), which returns a double. chlen returns the length of the (null-terminated) string of chtype's. chstrncpy Extract the characters from a null-terminated array of chtype's src. The size of the destination dest is given in maxcount. chtype2Char Extract the characters from a null-terminated array of chtype's string. A dynamically allocated string is returned. The caller is responsible for freeing the result. cleanChar is analogous to memset. Set the characters in string to the given character. The length of string is given by length. character which will be written. cleanChtype is analogous to memset. Set the chtype's in string to the given character. The length of string is given by length. cmpStrChstr Compare a char string str to a chtype string chstr. Return -1, 0 or 1 according to whether str is less than, equal to to greater than chstr. copyChar copies the string passed in. Unlike strdup this checks to see if the string is NULL before copying. copyCharList copies the given list. copyChtype function copies the string passed in, analogous to copyChar, but for chtype strings. copyChtypeList copies the given list. dirName Returns the directory for the given filename, i.e., the part before the * last slash. The return value should be freed by the caller. floorCDK Return an integer like the math function floor(), which returns a double. freeChar is a wrapper for free. It checks to see if the string is NULL before trying to free the string. freeCharList Free the memory used by the given list of strings. The number of strings to free is given by size. freeChtype is a wrapper for free, like freeChar. freeChtypeList Free the memory used by the given list of chtype strings. The number of strings to free is given by size. intlen returns the length of an integer, i.e., the number of characters needed to represent it. lenCharList returns the length of the given list. lenChtypeList returns the length of the given list. mode2Char Given a file protection mode fileMode, store a printable version of the permissions in string, formatted as if by "ls -l"). Return the corresponding permissions data, i.e., ignoring the file-type bits. searchList Search the given list of listSize strings for a subset of a word pattern in the given list. Return the index in the list if it is found, or -1 if not found. sortList performs a quick sort of the given list. This is a wrapper for qsort, used to sort the list of strings. The number of strings in list is given by length. The list is sorted alphabetically in increasing order.
