MODBUS_MAPPING_NEW

NAME

modbus_mapping_new − allocate four arrays of bits and registers

SYNOPSIS

modbus_mapping_t modbus_mapping_new(int nb_bits, int nb_input_bits, int nb_registers, int nb_input_registers);*

DESCRIPTION

The modbus_mapping_new() function shall allocate four arrays to store bits, input bits, registers and inputs registers. The pointers are stored in modbus_mapping_t structure. All values of the arrays are initialized to zero.

If it isn’t necessary to allocate an array for a specific type of data, you can pass the zero value in argument, the associated pointer will be NULL.

This function is convenient to handle requests in a Modbus server/slave.

RETURN VALUE

The modbus_mapping_new() function shall return the new allocated structure if successful. Otherwise it shall return NULL and set errno.

ERRORS

ENOMEM

Not enough memory

EXAMPLE

/* The fist value of each array is accessible from the 0 address. */
mb_mapping = modbus_mapping_new(BITS_ADDRESS + BITS_NB,
INPUT_BITS_ADDRESS + INPUT_BITS_NB,
REGISTERS_ADDRESS + REGISTERS_NB,
INPUT_REGISTERS_ADDRESS + INPUT_REGISTERS_NB);
if (mb_mapping == NULL) {
fprintf(stderr, "Failed to allocate the mapping: %s\n",
modbus_strerror(errno));
modbus_free(ctx);
return −1;
}
