Berkeley DB: Db::fd
Полезная информация

Db::fd


#include <db_cxx.h>

int Db::fd(int *fdp);

Description

The Db::fd method copies a file descriptor representative of the underlying database into the memory referenced by fdp. A file descriptor referencing the same file will be returned to all processes that call Db::open with the same file argument. This file descriptor may be safely used as an argument to the fcntl(2) and flock(2) locking functions. The file descriptor is not necessarily associated with any of the underlying files actually used by the access method.

The Db_fd function only supports a coarse-grained form of locking. Applications should use the lock manager where possible.

The Db::fd method either returns errno or throws an exception that encapsulates an errno on failure, and 0 on success.

Errors

If a fatal error occurs in Berkeley DB, the Db::fd method may fail and either return DB_RUNRECOVERY or throw an exception encapsulating DB_RUNRECOVERY, at which point all subsequent database calls will also fail in the same way. Methods marked as returning errno will, by default, throw an exception that encapsulates the error information. The default error behavior can be changed, see DbException.

The Db::fd method may fail and throw an exception for any of the errors specified for the following Berkeley DB and C library functions: DBmemp->pgin(3), DBmemp->pgout(3), abort(3), close(3), dbenv->db_paniccall(3), fcntl(3), fflush(3), fprintf(3), free(3), fsync(3), getenv(3), getpid(3), getuid(3), isdigit(3), DbLog::compare, DbLog::flush, lseek(3), malloc(3), memcpy(3), memset(3), open(3), pread(3), pwrite(3), qsort(3), read(3), realloc(3), sigfillset(3), sigprocmask(3), stat(3), strerror(3), strlen(3), unlink(3), vfprintf(3), vsnprintf(3), and write(3).
