What Should the Listings Look Like?

You can set how the listings are to be sorted using the following flags.

typedef enum _HTNewsDirKey {
    HT_NDK_NONE		= 0,			/* Unsorted */
    HT_NDK_INDEX  	= 1,			/* Sort by Message Number */
    HT_NDK_DATE   	= 2,			/* Sort by date */
    HT_NDK_SUBJECT	= 3,			/* Sort by Subject */
    HT_NDK_FROM		= 4,			/* Sort by Sender */
    HT_NDK_GROUP	= 5,			/* Sort group listing */
    HT_NDK_REFTHREAD    = 6  /* Sort messages by date and thread Added by MP */
} HTNewsDirKey;

The News Listing Object

The news listing object handles the generation of a news listing. It is a bit like a stream in that it accept data, but it must be formatted in a special way which makes the normal stream architecture inadequate.

Create a News Listing Object

Creates a structured stream object and sets up the initial HTML stuff Returns the dir object if OK, else NULL

typedef struct _HTNewsDir HTNewsDir;
extern HTNewsDir * HTNewsDir_new (HTRequest * request, const char * title,
				  HTNewsDirKey key, BOOL cache);

Add a Line to the List

This function accepts a news line. Everything except dir and nama can can be 0 or NULL. Returns YES if OK, else NO

typedef struct _HTNewsNode HTNewsNode;
extern HTNewsNode * HTNewsDir_addElement (HTNewsDir * dir, int index,
                                          char * subject,
				          char * from, time_t date,
                                          char * name,
				          int refs, HTList * refNames);
extern HTNewsNode * HTNewsDir_addGroupElement (HTNewsDir * dir, char * group,
                                               BOOL tmplate);

Check Whether Group Belongs to the Group Set

Returns TRUE if group belongs to set, e.g. group "soc.rec.jokes" belongs to the set "soc.rec.*". Added by MP

extern BOOL HTNewsDir_belongsToSet (HTNewsDir* dir, char* group);

Free a News Listing Object

If we are sorting then do the sorting and put out the list, else just append the end of the list.

extern BOOL HTNewsDir_free (HTNewsDir * dir);
#endif /* HTNDIR */
