CK_HT_GET_SPMC(3)        BSD Library Functions Manual        CK_HT_GET_SPMC(3)

NAME
     ck_ht_get_spmc -- load a key-value pair from a hash table

LIBRARY
     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ck_ht.h>

     bool
     ck_ht_get_spmc(ck_ht_t *ht, ck_ht_hash_t h, ck_ht_entry_t *entry);

DESCRIPTION
     The ck_ht_get_spmc() function will return the value associated with the
     key specified in the entry argument in the hash table pointed to by the
     ht argument. The key specified in entry is expected to have the hash
     value specified by the h argument.

     If ht was created with CK_HT_MODE_BYTESTRING then entry must have been
     initialized with the ck_ht_entry_set_key(3) or ck_ht_entry_set(3) func-
     tions. If ht was created with CK_HT_MODE_DIRECT then entry must have been
     initialized with the ck_ht_entry_key_set_direct(3) or
     ck_ht_entry_set_direct(3) functions.

     It is expected that h was initialized with ck_ht_hash(3) if ht was cre-
     ated with CK_HT_MODE_BYTESTRING. If ht was initialized with
     CK_HT_MODE_DIRECT then it is expected that h was initialized with the
     ck_ht_hash_direct(3) function.

     If the call to ck_ht_get_spmc() was successful then the key-value pair in
     entry was successfully found in the hash table pointed to by h and will
     fail if the key specified in entry does not exist in the hash table. If
     successful entry will contain the key-value pair found in the hash table
     pointed to by the ht argument.

     If ht was initialized with CK_HT_MODE_BYTESTRING then the key/value pair
     in entry may be extracted using the ck_ht_entry_key(3) and
     ck_ht_entry_value(3) functions. The length of the key may be extracted
     using the ck_ht_entry_key_length(3) function.

     If ht was initialized with CK_HT_MODE_DIRECT then the key/value pair in
     entry may be extracted using the ck_ht_entry_key_direct(3) and
     ck_ht_entry_value_direct(3) functions.

     This function is safe to call in the presence of a concurrent writer.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion ck_ht_get_spmc() returns true. If successful,
     entry will contain the key/value pair as found in the hash table.  Other-
     wise the function returns false on failure.

ERRORS
     Behavior is undefined if entry or ht are uninitialized. The function will
     return false if the key as specified in entry was not found in the hash
     table.
