stralloc.c (v4) - people remember this, right?

#1

Post by Ijon Tichy » Mon Jun 04, 2012 9:21 am

It's basically malloc, realloc, and free for strings. Yes, it works just fine with StrParam strings (that's what this was made for, after all).

Puke script 293 for a self-test.

Spoiler: HELP (Open)
This library is meant to act as a mechanism to store and recall strings in a
simple, universal way, mostly because StrParam strings only last for one tic.
You have a few functions to assist this:

- addString(int string): Adds a string to the strings[] array, making sure it
doesn't overlap with any strings currently in it. Returns the index of the
string.

- addCleanString(int string): Like addString, but removes non-printing
characters.

- getString(int index): Returns the string in strings[] at the index provided.

- stringLength(int index): Returns the length of the string at the index
provided.

- freeString(int index): Frees the string in strings[] at the index provided.

- reallocString(int index, int string): Basically, freeString(index) and
addString(string).

- reallocCleanString(int index, int string): reallocString, but removes
non-printing characters.

- dumpStrings(int stop): Dumps all the strings whose meta-index falls between 0
and $stop. A $stop value of 0 means "go until you hit a null value" - unless
something breaks, this generally means "all of them and no more".

The strings saved last forever - through map changes, through intermissions -
basically until the entire game is reset (through a "map" command). This makes
this library ideal for saving strings for later use.

There are a few functions not meant for external use. Those are addIndex,
getIndex, and freeIndex. Don't use them directly. You'll fuck things up. Trust
me on this one.

And by the way...
YEAH BITCHES, YOU CAN INPUT STRINGS TO ZANDRONUM. FROM IN-GAME.

Is this working for anyone? I can't get it from the DL link, just seeing what is done here makes me fill my pants.
