.TH buffer_peek 3
.SH NAME
buffer_peek \- return pointer to string in buffer
.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <libowfat/buffer.h>
char* \fBbuffer_peek\fP(buffer* \fIb\fR);
.SH DESCRIPTION
buffer_peek returns a pointer to the first byte of the string in the
buffer.
.SH EXAMPLE
buffer_feed, buffer_peek and buffer_seek can be used for efficient reading
loops, nearly the same speed as calling \fBop\fR directly:
for (;;) {
r = buffer_feed(&b);
if (r <= 0) return r;
x = buffer_peek(&b);
dosomething(x,r);
buffer_seek(&b,r);
}
.SH "SEE ALSO"
buffer_init(3), buffer_feed(3), buffer_get(3), buffer_seek(3), buffer(3)
