#define RTL_CONSTASCII_LENGTH (   constAsciiStr)    ((sal_Int32)(SAL_N_ELEMENTS(constAsciiStr)-1))

Supply the length of an ASCII string literal.

This macro can be used to compute arguments in function calls like rtl::OUString::match(other, RTL_CONSTASCII_LENGTH("prefix")).

Parameters
constAsciiStrmust be an expression of type "(possibly cv-qualified reference to) array of (possibly cv-qualified) char." Each element of the referenced array must represent an ASCII value in the range 0x00–0x7F. The last element of the referenced array is not considered part of the represented ASCII string, and its value should be 0x00. Depending on where this macro is used, the nature of the supplied expression might be further restricted.
#define RTL_CONSTASCII_STRINGPARAM (   constAsciiStr)
Value:
(&(constAsciiStr)[0]), \
((sal_Int32)SAL_N_ELEMENTS(constAsciiStr)-1)
#define SAL_N_ELEMENTS(arr)
Definition: macros.h:47

Supply an ASCII string literal together with its length.

This macro can be used to compute (some of) the arguments in function calls like rtl::OString(RTL_CONSTASCII_STRINGPARAM("foo")) or rtl::OUString::equalsAsciiL(RTL_CONSTASCII_STRINGPARAM("foo")).

Parameters
constAsciiStrmust be an expression of type "(possibly cv-qualified reference to) array of (possibly cv-qualified) char." Each element of the referenced array must represent an ASCII value in the range 0x00–0x7F. The last element of the referenced array is not considered part of the represented ASCII string, and its value should be 0x00. Depending on where this macro is used, the nature of the supplied expression might be further restricted.

Function Documentation

SAL_DLLPUBLIC sal_Bool rtl_convertUStringToString ( rtl_String **  pTarget,
sal_Unicode const *  pSource,
sal_Int32  nLength,
rtl_TextEncoding  nEncoding,
sal_uInt32  nFlags 
)

Converts a Unicode string to a byte string, signalling failure.

Parameters
pTargetAn out parameter receiving the converted string. Must not be null itself, and must contain either null or a pointer to a valid rtl_String; the contents are not modified if conversion fails (rtl_convertUStringToString returns false).
pSourceThe Unicode string. May only be null if nLength is zero.
nLengthThe length of the Unicode string. Must be non-negative.
nEncodingThe text encoding to convert into. Must be an octet encoding (i.e., rtl_isOctetTextEncoding(nEncoding) must return true).
nFlagsA combination of RTL_UNICODETOTEXT_FLAGS that detail how to do the conversion (see rtl_convertUnicodeToText). RTL_UNICODETOTEXT_FLAGS_FLUSH need not be included, it is implicitly assumed. Typical uses are either RTL_UNICODETOTEXT_FLAGS_UNDEFINED_ERROR | RTL_UNICODETOTEXT_FLAGS_INVALID_ERROR (fail if a Unicode character cannot be converted to the target nEncoding) or OUSTRING_TO_OSTRING_CVTFLAGS (make a best efforts conversion).
Returns
True if the conversion succeeded, false otherwise.
SAL_DLLPUBLIC sal_Int32 rtl_str_compare ( const sal_Char first,
const sal_Char second 
)

Compare two strings.

The comparison is based on the numeric value of each character in the strings and returns a value indicating their relationship. This function cannot be used for language-specific sorting. Both strings must be null-terminated.

Parameters
firstthe first null-terminated string to be compared.
secondthe second null-terminated string which is compared with the first one.
Returns
0 if both strings are equal, a value less than 0 if the first string is less than the second string, and a value greater than 0 if the first string is greater than the second string.
SAL_DLLPUBLIC sal_Int32 rtl_str_compare_WithLength ( const sal_Char first,
sal_Int32  firstLen,
const sal_Char second,
sal_Int32  secondLen 
)

Compare two strings.

The comparison is based on the numeric value of each character in the strings and returns a value indicating their relationship. This function cannot be used for language-specific sorting.

Parameters
firstthe first string to be compared. Need not be null-terminated, but must be at least as long as the specified firstLen.
firstLenthe length of the first string.
secondthe second string which is compared with the first one. Need not be null-terminated, but must be at least as long as the specified secondLen.

Returns
0 if both strings are equal, a value less than 0 if the first string is less than the second string, and a value greater than 0 if the first string is greater than the second string.
SAL_DLLPUBLIC sal_Int32 rtl_str_compareIgnoreAsciiCase ( const sal_Char first,
const sal_Char second

Compare two strings, ignoring the case of ASCII characters.

The comparison is based on the numeric value of each character in the strings and returns a value indicating their relationship. Character values between 65 and 90 (ASCII A–Z) are interpreted as values between 97 and 122 (ASCII a–z). This function cannot be used for language-specific sorting. Both strings must be null-terminated.

Parameters
firstthe first null-terminated string to be compared.
secondthe second null-terminated string which is compared with the first one.
Returns
0 if both strings are equal, a value less than 0 if the first string is less than the second string, and a value greater than 0 if the first string is greater than the second string.

)

Compare two strings, ignoring the case of ASCII characters.

The comparison is based on the numeric value of each character in the strings and returns a value indicating their relationship. Character values between 65 and 90 (ASCII A–Z) are interpreted as values between 97 and 122 (ASCII a–z). This function cannot be used for language-specific sorting.

Parameters
firstthe first string to be compared. Need not be null-terminated, but must be at least as long as the specified firstLen.
firstLenthe length of the first string.
secondthe second string which is compared with the first one. Need not be null-terminated, but must be at least as long as the specified secondLen.

Increment the reference count of a string.

Parameters
stra string.
SAL_DLLPUBLIC rtl_String* rtl_string_alloc ( sal_Int32  nLen)

Allocate a new string containing space for a given number of characters.

The reference count of the new string will be 1. The length of the string will be nLen. This function does not handle out-of-memory conditions.

For nLen < 0 or failed allocation this method returns NULL.

The characters of the capacity are not cleared, and the length is set to nLen, unlike the similar method of rtl_String_new_WithLength which zeros out the buffer, and sets the length to 0. So should be somewhat more efficient for allocating a new string.

call rtl_String_release to release the string alternatively pass ownership to an OUString with rtl::OUString(newStr, SAL_NO_ACQUIRE);

Parameters
[out]nLenthe number of characters.
Returns

rtl_String *  str,
sal_Int32  token,
sal_Char  cTok,
sal_Int32  idx 
)

Create a new string by extracting a single token from another string.

Starting at index, the token's next token is searched for. If there is no such token, the result is an empty string. Otherwise, all characters from the start of that token and up to, but not including the next occurrence of cTok make up the resulting token. The return value is the position of the next token, or -1 if no more tokens follow.

Example code could look like rtl_String * pToken = NULL; sal_Int32 nIndex = 0; do { ... nIndex = rtl_string_getToken(&pToken, pStr, 0, ';', nIndex); ... } while (nIndex >= 0);

The new string does not necessarily have a reference count of 1, so it must not be modified without checking the reference count. This function does not handle out-of-memory conditions.

Parameters
newStrpointer to the new string. The pointed-to data must be null or a valid string. If either token or index is negative, an empty token is stored in newStr (and -1 is returned).
stra valid string.
tokenthe number of the token to return, starting at index.

idxthe position at which searching for the token starts. Must not be greater than the length of str.
Returns

Create a new string by replacing all occurrences of a single character within another string.

The new string results from replacing all occurrences of oldChar in str with newChar.

The new string does not necessarily have a reference count of 1 (in cases where oldChar does not occur in str), so it must not be modified without checking the reference count. This function does not handle out-of-memory conditions.
