◆ EXTRACTOR_plugin_main_()

void EXTRACTOR_plugin_main_ ( struct EXTRACTOR_PluginList plugin,
int  in,
int  out 

'main' function of the child process. Loads the plugin, sets up its in and out pipes, then runs the request serving function.

◆ handle_init_message()

static int handle_init_message ( struct ProcessingContext pc)

Handle an init message. The opcode itself has already been read.

◆ plugin_env_get_size()

static uint64_t plugin_env_get_size ( void *  cls)

Provide the overall file size to plugins.

Fills data with a pointer to the data buffer.

◆ plugin_env_seek()

static int64_t plugin_env_seek ( void *  cls,
int64_t  pos,
int  whence 

Moves current absolute buffer position to 'pos' in 'whence' mode. Will move logical position without shifting the buffer, if possible. Will not move beyond the end of file.
