Member Function Documentation

◆ getSubcontractor()

Gyoto::SmartPointee::Subcontractor_t* Gyoto::Register::Entry::getSubcontractor ( std::string  name,
std::string &  plugin,
int  errmode = 0 

Get subcontractor for a given name.

Search through the register for an Entry matching name and return the corresponding subcontractor. If plugin is specified, only a subcontractor matching both name and plugin will be returned. Note that Gyoto::Entry::getSubcontractor() will not load the plug-in for you, contrary to e.g. Gyoto::Metric::getSubcontractor(). If plugin is the empty string, then the first subcontractor matching name will be returned, and the name of the plug-in it belongs to will be returned in plugin upon output.

[in]nameName of the kind to look for.
[in,out]plugine.g. "stdplug".
[in]errmode1 if getSubContractor() should return NULL upon failure. Else a Gyoto::Error is thrown.
