.SH NAME
cdb_find \- look up a key in a constant database
.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <cdb.h>

.B #include <uint32.h>

int cdb_find(struct cdb *\fIc\fR,char *\fIkey\fR,unsigned long int \fIkeylen\fR);
.br
int cdb_datalen(struct cdb *\fIc\fR);
.br
int cdb_datapos(struct cdb *\fIc\fR);

int cdb_findnext(struct cdb *\fIc\fR,char *\fIkey\fR,unsigned long int \fIkeylen\fR);

.SH DESCRIPTION
\fBcdb_find\fR looks for \fIkey\fR. If cdb_find returns 0, the database
does not contain that key; stop. If cdb_find returns -1, there was a
read error; abort.

\fBcdb_datalen\fR returns the length of the data associated with the
\fIkey\fR.  Use it to allocate a pointer \fIp\fR with enough space to
hold the data.

\fBcdb_datapos\fR returns the position of the data inside the file.  Use
it as argument to cdb_read to retrieve the data.

There may be several records under a single key. You can use
\fBcdb_findnext\fR to find the next record under this key.

.SH EXAMPLE
static struct c;

if (cdb_find(&c,key,strlen(key)>0) {
  char *buf=alloca(cdb_datalen(&c));
  cdb_read(&c,buf,cdb_datalen(&c),cdb_datapos(&c));
  write(1,buf,cdb_datalen(&c));
