DESCRIPTION

libipset provides a library interface to ipset(8). The integer return valued functions return 0 on success and a negative value on failure.
ipset_load_types
Loads in the supported ipset types in the library and make them available for the ipset interface.

ipset_init
Initializes the ipset interface: allocates and initializes the required internal structures, opens up the netlink channel. The function returns the library interface structure of type struct ipset * or NULL on failure.

ipset_parse_argv
Parses the argc lenght of array of strings argv with the already initialized ipset library structure. If the command is successfully parsed, it is then submitted to the kernel to execute. In the case of error, the textual error message is printed and a negative number is returned.

ipset_parse_line
Parses the string line with the already initialized ipset library structure. The line is supposed to contain a single ipset command in restore format. If the command is successfully parsed, it is then submitted to the kernel to execute. In the case of error, the textual error message is printed and a negative number is returned.

ipset_parse_stream
Parses the stream f with the already initialized ipset library structure. The stream may contain multiple newline separated ipset commands in restore format. The commands are parsed and then submitted to the kernel in batches for efficiecy. In the case of error, the textual error message is printed and a negative number is returned.

ipset_fini
Closes the netlink channel, closes opened streams and releases allocated structures holding by the ipset library structure.

The following functions makes possible to customize the interface.

ipset_custom_printf
Sets or resets the print functions for the ipset library structure, where custom_error is the custom error print function for the internal library errors, standard_error is the print function for the netlink/kernel related errors and outfn is the output function to print the result of list/save commands. The p pointer makes possible to pass arbitrary structure to the custom print functions. If NULL is passed instead of a function pointer, the default print function is set for the given task. If any of the print functions is non-default, then the version, help, interactive ipset commands are ignored.

ipset_session
The function returns the session structure of the ipset library structure, in order to manipulate the IO parameters.

ipset_session_full_io
You can controll the full IO, i.e. input (restore) and output (save) separatedly by the function. The session parameter is the session structure of the library interface, filename is the filename you want to use for input or output and what tells the function you want to set input or output file. If there's an already opened file for the given IO mode, it is closed. The function returns an error if normal mode is in use. If NULL is passed instead of a filename, already opened file is closed and the normal stream is set for the given IO mode (stdin for input, stdout for output). Input/output files can be set separatedly.

ipset_session_normal_io
You can controll the normal IO, which corresponds to the interface provided by ipset(8) itself. session parameter is the session structure of the library interface, filename is the filename you want to use for input or output and what tells the function you want to set input or output file. If there's an already opened file for input/output, it is closed. The function returns an error if full mode is in use. If NULL is passed instead of a filename, already opened file is closed and the normal stream is set for the given IO mode (stdin for input, stdout for output). Input/output files cannot be set separatedly.

ipset_session_io_stream
The function returns the stream set for the session where what tells the funtion you want to get the input or the output stream.

ipset_session_io_close
The function closes the stream for the session where what tells the funtion you want to close the input or the output stream. After closing, the standard streams are set: stdin for input, stdout for output.
