creates a new buffer with the specified capacity.

.br capacity: the size (in bytes) to allocate for the buffer .br Returns the created buffer

creates a buffer with the specified data. The data IS copied and MEMORY allocations are done. The buffer is not fixed and can be resized using buffer_reserve().

.br buffer: pointer to the buffer to put the data in .br data: the data to encapsulate in the buffer .br size: the size of the data

clears the buffer and make it ready for writing. The buffer's limit is set to the capacity and the position is set to 0. .br buffer: the buffer to clear

prints to the buffer, increasing the capacity if required using buffer_reserve(). The buffer's position is set to the terminating '\\0' Returns the number of characters written (not including the terminating '\\0') or -1 on failure.

frees the buffer. .br *buffer: the buffer to be freed .br Returns void

Makes the buffer fixed and returns a pointer to the data. The caller is responsible for free'ing the result. .br *buffer: the buffer to be exported .br Returns void
