5.35.2 API

Function: int lw6nod_info_community_add (lw6nod_info_t * info, u_int64_t id, const char * url)

info: node info object to modify

id: ID of the new member

url: URL of the new member, can be NULL

Adds a new member to the community.

Return value: 1 if new member could be added, 0 if not.

Function: int lw6nod_info_community_is_member (lw6nod_info_t * info, u_int64_t id, const char * url)

info: node info object to test

id: ID of the member we want to check

url: URL of the member we want to check

Tells wether a member is already in the community. Note that if there’s a member with the same URL but with a different ID, or a member with the same ID but a different URL, the function will fail, we need URLs and IDs to both be different for the peer to be added. Not respecting this would lead to confusion, while sharing an ID is conceivable over the whole network, it can’t be tolerated within a community. Same for the URL.

Return value: 1 if new member could be added, 0 if not.

Function: int lw6nod_info_community_has_id (lw6nod_info_t * info, u_int64_t id)

Return value: 1 if ID is already taken, 0 if available.

Function: int lw6nod_info_community_has_id_without_url (lw6nod_info_t * info, u_int64_t id)

info: node info object to test

id: ID of the member we want to check

Return value: 1 if ID is already taken and has NULL url, 0 else.

Function: int lw6nod_info_community_has_url (lw6nod_info_t * info, const char * url)

info: node info object to test

url: URL of the member we want to check

Tells wether a member exists with this URL. Will test both ourselves and remote peers.

Return value: 1 if URL is already taken, 0 if available.

Function: int64_t lw6nod_info_community_get_id_from_url (lw6nod_info_t * info, const char * url)

info: node info object to test

url: URL of the member we want to check

Returns the id of the node with this URL, if it’s known to us.

Function: int lw6nod_info_community_count (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: node info object to modify

Tells how many members there are in a community. This include ourselves so this can never be 0, should at least be 1. Note that this is pretty much the same as the nb_nodes member of dyn_info, but this one is calculated dynamically from peer list, while the other one is updated from time to time from game_state information.

Return value: number of community members, including this node (us).

Function: void lw6nod_info_community_reset (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: node info object to modify

Resets all peers, set community to only one member, ourselves.

Return value: none.

Function: char * lw6nod_info_community_get_peer_id_list_str (lw6nod_info_t * info)

idle_screenshot_data: the data (jpeg) of the image to display when game is idle

Creates a node info object. The arguments correspond to the immutable node attributes, other properties such as how many players are connected or set in other functions like lw6nod_info_update which can be called later.

Return value: newly allocated object, NULL on error.

Function: void lw6nod_info_free (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: the node info to free

Frees a node info object.

Return value: none

info: the node info to lock

Locks a node info object, this is usefull for some members, typically list of servers, can be accessed by separated threads, one reading, many writing, and these objects (chained lists) certainly do not want to be modified while being read.

Return value: 1 if ok, 0 if not.

Function: int lw6nod_info_unlock (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: the node info to unlock

Unlocks a node info object, this is the compation of the lw6nod_info_lock function.

Return value: 1 if ok, 0 if not.

Function: void lw6nod_info_idle (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: the node info to modify

Clears a node info object and sets all its variable attributes to NULL/default values. This is what we want when the node is idle, not playing.

info: the node info to update

community_id: the id of the community the node belongs to

round: the current round (can have an offset with real round number)

level: the name of the current level (map)

max_nb_colors: max number of colors allowed

nb_cursors: number of cursors playing

max_nb_cursors: max number of cursors allowed

nb_nodes: number of nodes playing

max_nb_nodes: max number of nodes allowed

peer_id_list: list of peers ids, can be NULL

game_screenshot_size: size of screenshot (bytes)

game_screenshot_data: screenshot data (byte buffer, contains JPEG)

Set a node info object variable attributes. Call this whenever the node has changed some parameter. Not too often for it’s not needed and some operations such as modying the screenshot, can be time consuming.

Return value: 1 if OK, 0 if error.

Function: lw6nod_dyn_info_t * lw6nod_info_dup_dyn (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: the node info containing the dyn info to duplicate

Extracts the dynamic part of an info struct and duplicates it, this is to avoid protection fault error when concurrent threads access this info.

Return value: newly allocated object, must be freed.

Function: lw6sys_hash_t * lw6nod_info_new_discovered_nodes ()

Creates a new hash, to be used as a discovered nodes list. Using this function has the advantage of setting the hash options to their defaults. We use a hash to avoid having uselessly long lists containing always the same node due to multiple detections.

Return value: an empty hash

Function: int lw6nod_info_add_discovered_node (lw6nod_info_t * info, const char * public_url)

info: the node info to update

public_url: the address of the discovered node

Registers a new server, and queues it as something that should be checked later because it’s interesting. We can’t insert in the database all the servers we suspect to exist so network threads should use this, then main thread will process discovered servers afterwards. This is also a good way to avoid trivial DOS attacks.

Return value: 1 if OK, O if error.

Function: lw6sys_list_t * lw6nod_info_pop_discovered_nodes (lw6nod_info_t * info)

info: the node info to query

Returns a list of all discovered nodes (their public URL) and empties the current queue as well.

Return value: a list of dynamically allocated strings.

Function: lw6sys_list_t * lw6nod_info_new_verified_nodes ()

Creates a new list, to be filled with nodes and typically passed to lw6nod_info_set_verified_nodes. Using this function has the advantage of setting the listh options to their defaults.

Return value: an empty list

Function: int lw6nod_info_set_verified_nodes (lw6nod_info_t * info, lw6sys_list_t * list)

info: the node info to modify

list: the list of verified nodes, will be freed by this function

Sets the list of verified nodes, that is, the list of nodes we are sure to exist, this is typically the list we will display later on a web page. We can’t directly display any discovered node, one needs to filter them through main thread. Something very important about this function is that list will be freed by function, that is, if you call this, then you can (you should) forget your object, it will disappear any time soon.

Return value: 1 if OK, 0 on error.

Function: void lw6nod_info_map_verified_nodes (lw6nod_info_t * info, lw6sys_list_callback_func_t func, void * func_data)

info: the node info concerned

func: the function to apply

func_data: arbitrary pointer holding data to pass to function

Calls lw6sys_hash_map with func on every member of the list of verified nodes. The reason there’s a function for this is that it is very important that list object is locked when doing this. This function does perform a lock/unlock so it is safe.

Return value: none.

Function: int lw6nod_test_register (int mode)

mode: test mode (bitmask)

Registers all tests for the libnod module.

Return value: 1 if test is successfull, 0 on error.

Function: int lw6nod_test_run (int mode)

mode: test mode (bitmask)

Runs the nod module test suite, testing most (if not all...) functions.

Return value: 1 if test is successfull, 0 on error.
