/* Copyright 2002 Daniel Egnor.  See LICENSE.geocoder file.
 * This file defines the I/O interface used for access to index files.
 * There are two implementations of this interface; io-mmap.c uses Unix
 * mmap() and is quite efficient, and io-stdio.c uses C stdio and is slower
 * but more portable.  Which one is used depends on which file is compiled. */


struct io_file;

/* Open a file.  The file will be created if it did not exist. 
 * It will be opened R/W if possible, R/O otherwise. 
 * Returns NULL on error.*/

struct io_file *io_open(const char *fname);
void io_close(struct io_file *);

/* In general, all I/O is done with an offset ("pos") directly.  There is
 * no "current position" associated with the file handle.  This is really
 * a lot more convenient for random access.
 * Functions almost always return the position just after the data that was
 * read or written, so they may be easily "chained" to read or write several
 * contiguous items; this makes it almost as easy to do this as it would be
 * with a file pointer, which keeping things more flexible.
 * If an error occurs, the return value will be -1.  If the input "pos"
 * is -1, these functions will silently return -1, so you can safely wait
 * until the end of a "chain" to check for errors, if you want. 
 * Integer values are written in byte-order-independent fashion. */
