ping_iterator_get_context, ping_iterator_set_context - Store host-dependent data
#include <oping.h> void *ping_iterator_get_context (pingobj_iter_t *iter); void ping_iterator_set_context (pingobj_iter_t *iter, void *context);
ping_iterator_set_context can be used to store host-specific data within the liboping structures. This data can be received again by calling ping_iterator_get_context. The data itself is never touched by liboping. If you call ping_host_remove (see ping_host_add(3)) or ping_destroy (see ping_construct(3)) and the context is not NULL liboping will assume you know what you’re doing and simply ignore the fact this might be a memory leak.
The iter argument is an iterator object as returned by ping_iterator_get(3) and ping_iterator_next.
The context argument of ping_iterator_set_context is a pointer to anything and may be NULL.
ping_iterator_get_context returns the same pointer previously passed to ping_iterator_set_context or NULL if ping_iterator_set_context has never been called before.
