Subject advice on use of APR_STATUS_IS_*
Date Sun, 08 May 2005 22:51:48 GMT
mod_perl 2 supplies some APR::* modules for binding to apr,
and a question has arisen regarding checking error codes
against the appropriate APR_* constants. In apr_errno.h
there are warnings about using the corresponding
APR_STATUS_IS_* macros, as there could be more than one
variant satisfying an error condition (eg,
APR_STATUS_IS_ENOENT). There are a number of cases though
for which at present there's only one such condition (eg,
APR_STATUS_IS_EOF). What we were wondering is if the
APR_STATUS_IS_* macros are still strongly recommended to use
in cases where there is only one variant? Or, for such
cases, has common useage become just to compare against the
corresponding APR_* constant (eg, APR_EOF)? Thanks very

best regards,
randy kobes
