Procedure

                   SpiceBoolean    * found  ) 

Abstract

Brief_I/O

 
   Variable  I/O  Description 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   handle     I   Handle of open DLA file. 
   descr      O   Descriptor of first segment in DLA file. 
   found      O   Flag indicating whether a segment was found. 
 

Detailed_Input

 
   handle      is the DAS integer handle associated with the file to be
               searched. This handle is used to identify the file in
               subsequent calls to other DLA or DAS routines.
 

Detailed_Output

 
   descr       is the descriptor of the first DLA segment in the file
               associated with `handle'. `descr' is valid only if the
               output argument `found' is SPICETRUE.
 
   found       is a logical flag indicating whether a segment was 
               found.  `found' has the value SPICETRUE if a segment was
               found; otherwise `found' is SPICEFALSE.
 

Parameters

 
   None. 
 

Exceptions

 
   1) If the input file handle is invalid, the error will be 
      diagnosed by routines in the call tree of this routine. 
 
   2) If an error occurs while reading the DLA file, the error  
      will be diagnosed by routines in the call tree of this 
      routine. 
 

Files

 
   See description of input argument `handle'. 
 

Particulars

 
   DLA files are built using the DAS low-level format; DLA files are 
   a specialized type of DAS file in which data are organized as a 
   doubly linked list of segments.  Each segment's data belong to 
   contiguous components of character, double precision, and integer 
   type. 
 
   This routine supports forward traversal of a DLA file's segment 
   list.  Note that it is not necessary to call this routine to 
   conduct a forward traversal; all that is necessary is to have 
   access to the first descriptor in the file, which this routine 
   provides. 
 

Examples

 
   1)  Open a DLA file for read access, traverse the segment 
       list from front to back, and display segment address 
       and size attributes. 
 

          #include "SpiceUsr.h"
          #include "SpiceDLA.h"
          #include <stdio.h>

          int main()
          {      
             /.
             Local parameters 
             ./
             #define FILSIZ           256 

             /.
             Local variables
             ./
             SpiceBoolean            found;
             SpiceChar               fname  [ FILSIZ ];
             SpiceDLADescr           current;
             SpiceDLADescr           descr;
             SpiceInt                handle;
             SpiceInt                segno;

             /.
             Prompt for the name of the file to search.
             ./
             prompt_c ( "Name of DLA file > ", FILSIZ, fname );

             /.
             Open the DLA file for read access.  Since DLA
             files use the DAS architecture, we can use DAS
             routines to open and close the file.
             ./
             dasopr_c ( fname, &handle );

             /.
             Begin a forward search.  Let `descr' contain
             the descriptor of the first segment.
             ./
             segno = 0;

             dlabfs_c ( handle, &descr, &found );

             while ( found )
             {
                /.        
                Display the contents of the current segment
                descriptor.
                ./

                ++segno;

                printf ( "\n"
                         "\n"
                         "Segment number = %d\n"
                         "\n"
                         "   Backward segment pointer         = %d\n"
                         "   Forward segment pointer          = %d\n"
                         "   Integer component base address   = %d\n"
                         "   Integer component size           = %d\n"
                         "   D.p. component base address      = %d\n"
                         "   D.p. component size              = %d\n"
                         "   Character component base address = %d\n"
                         "   Character component size         = %d\n",
                         (int)(segno),
                         (int)(descr.bwdptr),
                         (int)(descr.fwdptr),
                         (int)(descr.ibase),
                         (int)(descr.isize),
                         (int)(descr.dbase),
                         (int)(descr.dsize),
                         (int)(descr.cbase),
                         (int)(descr.csize)                                  );

                /.
                Find the next segment.
                ./
                current = descr;

                dlafns_c ( handle, &current, &descr, &found );
             }

             /.
             Close the file using the DAS close routine.
             ./
             dascls_c ( handle );

             return ( 0 );
          } 

   The program outputs:

      Segment number = 1
