libfirestring(3)	   Library Functions Manual	      libfirestring(3)

NAME
       libfirestring - library for safe, fast string handling

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<firestring.h>
       -lfirestring

DESCRIPTION
       libfirestring is	a string handling library that provides	maximum	length
       aware string handling functions to programs.  Several functions provide
       saner  interfaces than the standard libc	functions.  libfirestring also
       provides	functions that are in most libc's but not provided for by ANSI
       C, enabling programmers to write	ANSI C-compliant code while using such
       safe functions (strcasecmp, strncasecmp,	snprintf).

       libfirestring provides a	set of functions for  dealing  with  EStrings.
       EStrings	 are  binary-safe  objects that, when used with	the firestring
       functions, are overflow safe, because  they  include  allocated	memory
       size information	with them.

       libfirestring also includes functions for dealing with reading configu-
       ration files in an easy to program fashion.

       Miscellaneous functions:
	      firestring_malloc(3)
	      firestring_realloc(3)

       Starting-letter keys (for String	and EString functions):
	      n	Length-safe (takes a size argument)
	      e	EString	(length-safe and binary-safe,  takes  a	 struct	 fire-
	      string_estr_t argument)
	      i	Case-insensitive
	      a	Automatically expands EString to correct size (possible	memory
	      DoS attack in some cases)
	      s	Writes into a provided instead of to a stream
	      f	Writes into a specified	stream instead of to standard output
