#include <db_cxx.h>

int DbEnv::memp_fcreate(DbMpoolFile **dbmfp, u_int32_t flags);


The DbEnv::memp_fcreate method creates a DbMpoolFile structure that is the handle for a Berkeley DB shared memory buffer pool file. A pointer to this structure is returned in the memory to which dbmfp refers. Calling the DbMpoolFile::close method will discard the returned handle.

The flags parameter is currently unused, and must be set to 0.

The DbEnv::memp_fcreate method either returns a non-zero error value or throws an exception that encapsulates a non-zero error value on failure, and returns 0 on success.


The DbEnv::memp_fcreate method may fail and throw an exception or return a non-zero error for errors specified for other Berkeley DB and C library or system methods. If a catastrophic error has occurred, the DbEnv::memp_fcreate method may fail and either return DB_RUNRECOVERY or throw a DbRunRecoveryException, in which case all subsequent Berkeley DB calls will fail in the same way.
