#ifndef ISC_SYMBOL_H
#define ISC_SYMBOL_H 1
***** Module Info
* Symbol Table
* Provides a simple memory-based symbol table.
* Keys are C strings, and key comparisons are case-insenstive. A type may
* be specified when looking up, defining, or undefining. A type value of
* 0 means "match any type"; any other value will only match the given
* type.
* It's possible that a client will attempt to define a <key, type, value>
* tuple when a tuple with the given key and type already exists in the table.
* What to do in this case is specified by the client. Possible policies are:
* Reject Disallow the define, returning ISC_R_EXISTS
* Replace Replace the old value with the new. The
* undefine action (if provided) will be called
* with the old <key, type, value> tuple.
* Add Add the new tuple, leaving the old tuple in
* the table. Subsequent lookups will retrieve
* the most-recently-defined tuple.
* A lookup of a key using type 0 will return the most-recently defined
* symbol with that key. An undefine of a key using type 0 will undefine the
* most-recently defined symbol with that key. Trying to define a key with
* type 0 is illegal.
* The symbol table library does not make a copy the key field, so the
* caller must ensure that any key it passes to isc_symtab_define() will not
* change until it calls isc_symtab_undefine() or isc_symtab_destroy().
* A user-specified action will be called (if provided) when a symbol is
* undefined. It can be used to free memory associated with keys and/or
* values.
* MP:
* The callers of this module must ensure any required synchronization.
* Reliability:
* No anticipated impact.
* Resources:
* <TBS>
* Security:
* No anticipated impact.
* Standards:
* None.
