Subject Re: zoo_set() version question
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2008 19:36:40 GMT
Patrick,

Thanks for responding.

I agree that I can use zoo_exists and zoo_get to get the version of the
znode as it exists currently.

The problem I am trying to solve is that getting the version from struct
Stat in either zoo_exists or zoo_get may not be the same version that my
last successful zoo_set used.  I would like to get the version that denotes
my last successful zoo_set() operation to a particular znode.

I understand that the data and version to the znode may change immediately
one or multiple times after my zoo_set() and this is fine, but I would still
like to know the znode's versions of the data I set.
