dc_parser_get_fieldextract a field from a parsed dive

LIBRARY

library “libdivecomputer”

SYNOPSIS

#include <libdivecomputer/parser.h>
dc_status_t
dc_parser_get_field(dc_parser_t *parser, dc_field_type_t type, unsigned int flags, void *value);

DESCRIPTION

Extract a field from a dive, parser, previously initialised with dc_parser_set_data(3). The value field type depends upon the type. The flags field is ignored for all types but DC_FIELD_GASMIX and DC_FIELD_TANK.
The type may be one of the following values:
DC_FIELD_DIVETIME
Time (duration) of dive in seconds. The value must be an unsigned int.
DC_FIELD_MAXDEPTH
Maximum depth in metres. The value must be a double.
DC_FIELD_AVGDEPTH
Average depth (over all samples) in metres. The value must be a double.
DC_FIELD_GASMIX_COUNT
Number of different gas mixes used in this dive. The value must be a unsigned int.
DC_FIELD_GASMIX
Mixture for a particular gas. The value must be a dc_gasmix_t, which has double fields for oxygen, helium, and nitrogen. These are set to the unit fraction of gas (not percentage). The flags value is interpreted as the gas mixture index, which must be less than the value of DC_FIELD_GASMIX_COUNT.
DC_FIELD_SALINITY
The water salinity as a dc_salinity_t field, which consists of a type, DC_WATER_FRESH or DC_WATER_SALT, and the salinity density.
DC_FIELD_ATMOSPHERIC
Atmospheric pressure in bar. The value field must be a double.
DC_FIELD_TEMPERATURE_SURFACE
Air temperature (at the surface) in Celsius. The value field must be a double.
DC_FIELD_TEMPERATURE_MINIMUM
Minimum water temperature surface in Celsius. The value field must be a double.
DC_FIELD_TEMPERATURE_MAXIMUM
Maximum water temperature in Celsius. The value field must be a double.
DC_FIELD_TANK_COUNT
The number of tanks as an unsigned int.
DC_FIELD_TANK
Tank configuration as a dc_tank_t. This structure consists of a gasmix, which may be retrieved with DC_FIELD_GASMIX; type, the tank volume units as DC_TANKVOLUME_NONE, DC_TANKVOLUME_IMPERIAL, or DC_TANKVOLUME_METRIC; volume, the tank volume in bar or zero if the tank is DC_TANKVOLUME_NONE; workpressure, the work pressure in bar or zero if DC_TANKVOLUME_NONE and maybe zero if DC_TANKVOLUME_METRIC; beginpressure and endpressure being the pressures at start and finish in bar. The flags value is the tank index.
DC_FIELD_DIVEMODE
Mode of the dive: DC_DIVEMODE_FREEDIVE for free-diving, DC_DIVEMODE_GAUGE for gauge (i.e., running as a record and not computing, say, decompression events), DC_DIVEMODE_OC for standard open-circuit diving, and DC_DIVEMODE_CC for closed-circuit “rebreather” diving.

RETURN VALUES

Returns DC_STATUS_SUCCESS if the field was retrieved, DC_STATUS_UNSUPPORTED if the field is not supported by the device, or other error messages on further failure.
