gd_nfragments(3) retrieve the number of format specification fragments in a


#include <getdata.h>
int gd_nfragments(const DIRFILE *dirfile);


The gd_nfragments() function queries a dirfile(5) database specified by dirfile and returns the total number of parsed format specification fragments in the database.

The dirfile argument must point to a valid DIRFILE object previously created by a call to gd_open(3).


Upon successful completion, gd_nfragments() returns the total number of format specification fragments which are present in the dirfile. On error, gd_nfragments() returns zero and sets the dirfile error to a non-zero value. Possible error values are:
The supplied dirfile was invalid.

The dirfile error may be retrieved by calling gd_error(3). A descriptive error string for the last error encountered can be obtained from a call to gd_error_string(3).
