<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em">libmawk_append_input
&minus; append a string to an input buffer</p>

<a name="SYNOPSIS"></a>

<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em"><b>#include

<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em"><b>void
libmawk_append_input(mawk_state_t *</b><i>m</i><b>, const
char *</b><i>input_str</i><b>);</b></p>

<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em"><b>void

<a name="DESCRIPTION"></a>

<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em">The
<b>libmawk_append_input</b>() and
<b>libmawk_append_ninput</b>() functions allow the
application to fill the input buffer of a libmawk context.
No record separator is appended, only the bytes donated by
input_str or input, thus it is possible to append partial
records. Appending to the input doesn&rsquo;t have the side
effect of any script being run. There may be multiple
libmawk_append_input() calls before a call to
libmawk_run_main(). The latter all is used to let the script
process the input buffer.</p>

<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em">The only
difference between the two calls are the input format:
<b>libmawk_append_input</b>() expects a nul-terminated
string, whereas <b>libmawk_append_ninput</b>() takes an
arbitrary binary data and its length.</p>

<p style="margin-left:11%; margin-top: 1em">Argument m is a
libmawk context previously returned by libmawk_initialize()
or libmawk_initialize_stage3().</p>
