Which end of a string to operate on for string_trim().


Beginning of string.


End of string.


Both ends of string.

Function Documentation

SPHINXBASE_EXPORT double atof_c ( char const *  str)

Locale independent version of atof().

This function behaves like atof() in the "C" locale. Switching locale in a threaded program is extremely uncool, therefore we need this since we pass floats as strings in 1000 different places.

SPHINXBASE_EXPORT int32 nextword ( char *  line,
const char *  delim,
char **  word,
char *  delimfound 

Yet another attempt at a clean "next-word-in-string" function.

See arguments below.

Length of word returned, or -1 if nothing found. This allows you to scan through a line:
while ((n = nextword(line, delim, &word, &delimfound)) >= 0) {
    ... do something with word ..
    word[n] = delimfound;
    line = word + n;
lineInput: String being searched for next word. Will be modified by this function (NUL characters inserted)
delimInput: A word, if found, must be delimited at either end by a character from this string (or at the end by the NULL char)
wordOutput: *word = ptr within line to beginning of first word, if found. Delimiter at the end of word replaced with the NULL char.
delimfoundOutput: *delimfound = original delimiter found at the end of the word. (This way, the caller can restore the delimiter, preserving the original string.)

SPHINXBASE_EXPORT int32 str2words ( char *  line,
char **  wptr,
int32  n_wptr 

Convert a line to an array of "words", based on whitespace separators.

A word is a string with no whitespace chars in it. Note that the string line is modified as a result: NULL chars are placed after every word in the line. Return value: No. of words found; -1 if no. of words in line exceeds n_wptr.

lineIn/Out: line to be parsed. This string will be modified! (NUL characters inserted at word boundaries)
wptrIn/Out: Array of pointers to words found in line. The array must be allocated by the caller. It may be NULL in which case the number of words will be counted. This allows you to allcate it to the proper size, e.g.:

n = str2words(line, NULL, 0); wptr = ckd_calloc(n, sizeof(*wptr)); str2words(line, wptr, n);

n_wptrIn: Size of wptr array, ignored if wptr == NULL

SPHINXBASE_EXPORT char* string_trim ( char *  string,
enum string_edge_e  which 

Remove whitespace from a string, modifying it in-place.

stringstring to trim, contents will be modified.
