sd_hwdb_new, sd_hwdb_new_from_path, sd_hwdb_ref, sd_hwdb_unref — Create a new hwdb object and create or destroy references to it
|const char *path,|
sd_hwdb_new() creates a new hwdb object to access the binary hwdb
database. Upon initialization, the file containing the binary representation of the hardware database is
located and opened. The new object is returned in
sd_hwdb_new_from_path() may be used to specify the path from which the binary
hardware database should be opened.
hwdb object is reference counted.
sd_hwdb_unref() may be used to get a new reference or destroy an existing reference
to an object. The caller must dispose of the reference acquired with
sd_hwdb_unref() when done with the object.
Use sd_hwdb_seek(3), sd_hwdb_get(3), and sd_hwdb_enumerate(3) to access entries.
return a non-negative integer. On failure, a negative errno-style error code is returned.
sd_hwdb_ref() always returns the argument.
sd_hwdb_unref() always returns
Returned errors may indicate the following problems:
The binary hardware database file could not be located. See systemd-hwdb(8) for more information.
The located binary hardware database file is in an incompatible format.
Memory allocation failed.
