NAME

BackupPC::XS - Perl extension for BackupPC libraries

SYNOPSIS

  use BackupPC::XS;
  use BackupPC::XS qw( :all );

DESCRIPTION

BackupPC::XS provides various submodules that implement various BackupPC library functions. The following sections describe each submodule.
This documentation is very terse. BackupPC::XS is not intended to be a general-purpose module - it is closely tied to BackupPC. Look in the BackupPC code to see examples of using this module.

BackupPC::XS::FileZIO

Compressed file I/O using zlib:
    $fd = BackupPC::XS::FileZIO::open($fileName, $writeFlag, $compressLevel);
    $fd = BackupPC::XS::FileZIO::fdopen($stream, $writeFlag, $compressLevel);
    $nWrite   = $fd->write($dataRef);
    $nRead    = $fd->read($dataRef, $maxRead);
    $textLine = $fd->readLine();
    $fd->rewind();
    $fd->close();
    $fd->writeTeeStderr($boolean);

BackupPC::XS::PoolRefCnt

Pool file reference counting:
    $countDB = BackupPC::XS::PoolRefCnt::new(initialEntryCnt);
    $refCount = $countDB->get($digest);
    $countDB->set($digest, $refCount);
    $countDB->delete($digest);
    $countDB->incr($digest, $refIncr);
    ($digest, $refCnt, $idx) = $countDB->iterate($idx);
    $countDB->read($fileName);
    $countDB->write($fileName);
    $countDB->print();
Pool file delta accumulation:
    BackupPC::XS::PoolRefCnt::DeltaFileInit($hostDir);
    BackupPC::XS::PoolRefCnt::DeltaFileFlush();
    BackupPC::XS::PoolRefCnt::DeltaUpdate($digest, $refIncr);
    BackupPC::XS::PoolRefCnt::DeltaPrint();

BackupPC::XS::PoolWrite

Writing and matching files in the pool:
    $poolWrite = BackupPC::XS::PoolWrite::new($compressLevel [, $digest]);
    $poolWrite->write($dataRef);
    ($match, $digest, $poolSize, $error) = $poolWrite->close();
    $poolWrite->addToPool($fileName, $isV3PoolFile);

BackupPC::XS::Attrib

Manipulating a set of files and attributes (typically one directory's worth):
    $a = BackupPC::XS::Attrib::new($compressLevel);
    $attrHash = $a->get($fileName);
    $a->set($fileName, $attrHash);
    $numDirEntries = $a->count();
    $a->read($dirPath, $attribFileName);
    $a->write($dirPath, $attribFileName);
    $textType = BackupPC::XS::Attrib::fileType2Text(BPC_FTYPE_....);

BackupPC::XS::AttribCache

Maintain a cache of directories, with full share/path semantics.
    $ac = BackupPC::XS::AttribCache::new($host, $backupNum, $shareNameUM, $compress);
    $attrHash = $ac->get($fileName, $allocateIfMissing, $dontReadInode);
    $ac->set($fileName, $attrHash, $dontOverwriteInode);
    $ac->delete($fileName);
    $attrHash = $ac->getInode($inode, $allocateIfMissing);
    $ac->setInode($inode, $attrHash);
    $ac->deleteInode($inode);
    $ac->getAll($path, $dontReadInode);
    $ac->flush($all, $path);
    $ac->getFullMangledPath($path);

BackupPC::XS::DirOps

    $zeroMeansOk = BackupPC::XS::DirOps::path_create($path);
    $errorCnt = BackupPC::XS::DirOps::path_remove($path, $compress);
    $errorCnt = BackupPC::XS::DirOps::refCountAll($path, $compress);
    $lockFd = BackupPC::XS::DirOps::lockRangeFile($lockFile, $offset, $len, $block);
    BackupPC::XS::DirOps::unlockRangeFile($lockFd);

BackupPC::XS::Lib

    BackupPC::XS::Lib::ConfInit($topDir, $hardLinkMax, $poolV3Enabled, $logLevel)
    $messageArrayRef = BackupPC::XS::Lib::logMsgGet();
    $errorCnt = BackupPC::XS::Lib::logErrorCntGet;
    BackupPC::XS::Lib::logLevelSet($level);

EXPORTS

If you specify :all (see SYNOPSIS), then the BPC_FTYPE_ values are exported.
