Support nested buffers

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Currently our buffer support is for flat buffer types as per the XATMI specification

      It would be useful to allow nested buffers to be supported, e.g. allow a collection of X_COMMON buffers to be returned

      We will need to add a new buffer type to support this.

      We currently have our own buffer type PBF (Portable Buffer Format)

      I would recommend to repurpose and renamed this as the Nested Buffer Format (BT_NBF)

      We need to rename all references of PBF to BT_NBF

      This buffer format should allow:
      X_OCTET
      char[]
      X_COMMON
      adds: short, long, char, short[], long[]
      X_C_TYPE
      adds: int, float, double, int[], float[], char[]
      BT_NBF
      adds: X_OCTET, X_COMMON, X_C_TYPE, BT_NBF, X_OCTET[], X_COMMON[], X_C_TYPE[], BT_PBF[]
      (THE ARRAY TYPES SHOULD SUPPORT UNBOUNDED INDEX COUNTS!)
