db_env_set_func_exists(int (*func_exists)(const char *path, int *isdirp));
The Berkeley DB library requires the ability to determine whether a file
exists and whether it is a file of type directory. The func
argument must conform to the following interface:
int exists(const char *path, int *isdirp);
The path argument is the pathname of the file to be checked.
If the isdirp argument is non-NULL, it must be set to non-0 if
path is a directory, and 0 if path is not a directory.
The func_exists interface must return the value of errno on
failure and 0 on success.
The db_env_set_func_exists method configures all operations performed by a process and
all of its threads of control, not operations confined to a single
Although the db_env_set_func_exists interface may be called at any time during the
life of the application, it should normally be called before making
calls to the db_env_create or db_create methods.
The db_env_set_func_exists method returns a non-zero error value on failure and 0 on success.
The db_env_set_func_exists method may fail and return a non-zero error for the following conditions:
- An invalid flag value or parameter was specified.
The db_env_set_func_exists method may fail and return a non-zero error for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system functions.
If a catastrophic error has occurred, the db_env_set_func_exists method may fail and
in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
