Description

Details

vfs_module_init ()

GnomeVFSMethod *    vfs_module_init                     (const char *method_name,
                                                         const char *args);

Standard extern call implemented by each filesystem module. This is called to initialize the module and setup any basic structures / connections the method requires. It also allows the module to identify the URI method it is associated with in this instance.

method_name :

name of the method that invoked this module (e.g. "http", "ftp", "file").

args :

not used by most modules, but potential arguments for creating the module (could be a file to point at, for example)

Returns :

the module symbol table, pointing to the appropriate calls for this module.

vfs_module_transform ()

GnomeVFSTransform * vfs_module_transform                (const char *method_name,
                                                         const char *args);

Shift an already instanced module to a new method name. This call is not implemented by most modules and is optional.

method_name :

name of the method that invoked this module (e.g. "http", "ftp", "file").

args :

not used by most modules, but potential arguments for creating the module (could be a file to point at, for example)

Returns :

the module symbol table, pointing to the appropriate calls for this module.

vfs_module_shutdown ()

void                vfs_module_shutdown                 (GnomeVFSMethod *method);

Called to tell a module to end any active operations, free all used memory, and close any connections (as appropriate) or resources.

method :

the symbol table of the module being shut down
