@section Filesystem-level functions
The following functions operate on a filesystem handle. Most EXT2FS
Library functions require a filesystem handle as their first argument.
There are two functions which create a filesystem handle,
@code{ext2fs_open} and @code{ext2fs_initialize}.
The filesystem can also be closed using @code{ext2fs_close}, and any
changes to the superblock and group descriptors can be written out to disk
using @code{ext2fs_flush}.

@subsection Opening an ext2 filesystem
Most libext2fs functions take a filesystem handle of type
@code{ext2_filsys}. A filesystem handle is created either by opening
an existing filesystem using @code{ext2fs_open}, or by initializing a new
filesystem using @code{ext2fs_initialize}.
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_open (const char *@var{name}, int @var{flags}, int @var{superblock}, int @var{block_size}, io_manager @var{manager}, ext2_filsys *@var{ret_fs})
Opens a filesystem named @var{name}, using the the io_manager
@var{manager} to define the input/output routines needed to read and
write the filesystem. In the case of the @code{unix_io} io_manager,
@var{name} is interpreted as the Unix filename of the filesystem image.
This is often a device file, such as @file{/dev/hda1}.
The @var{superblock} parameter specifies the block number of the
superblock which should be used when opening the filesystem.
If @var{superblock} is zero, @code{ext2fs_open} will use the primary
superblock located at offset 1024 bytes from the start of the filesystem
image.
The @var{block_size} parameter specifies the block size used by the
filesystem. Normally this is determined automatically from the
filesystem superblock. If @var{block_size} is non-zero, it must match
the block size found in the superblock, or the error
@code{EXT2_ET_UNEXPECTED_BLOCK_SIZE} will be returned. The
@var{block_size} parameter is also used to help find the superblock when
@var{superblock} is non-zero.
The @var{flags} argument contains a bitmask of flags which control how
the filesystem open should be handled.
@table @code
@item EXT2_FLAG_RW
Open the filesystem for reading and writing. Without this flag, the
filesystem is opened for reading only.
@item EXT2_FLAG_FORCE
Open the filesystem regardless of the feature sets listed in the
superblock.
@end table
@end deftypefun

@node Closing and flushing out changes, Initializing a filesystem, Opening an ext2 filesystem, Filesystem-level functions
@comment node-name, next, previous, up
@subsection Closing and flushing out changes
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_flush (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
Write any changes to the high-level filesystem data structures in the
@var{fs} filesystem. The following data structures will be written out:
@itemize @bullet
@item The filesystem superblock
@item The filesystem group descriptors
@item The filesystem bitmaps, if read in via @code{ext2fs_read_bitmaps}.
@end itemize
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun void ext2fs_free (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
Close the io_manager abstraction for @var{fs} and release all memory
associated with the filesystem handle.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_close (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
Flush out any changes to the high-level filesystem data structures using
@code{ext2fs_flush} if the filesystem is marked dirty; then close and
free the filesystem using @code{ext2fs_free}.
@end deftypefun

@comment node-name, next, previous, up
@subsection Initializing a filesystem
An ext2 filesystem is initializing by the @code{mke2fs} program. The
two functions described here, @code{ext2fs_initialize} and
@code{ext2fs_allocate_tables} do much of the initial work for setting up
a filesystem. However, they don't do the whole job. @code{mke2fs}
calls @code{ext2fs_initialize} to set up the filesystem superblock, and
calls @code{ext2fs_allocate_tables} to allocate space for the inode
table, and the inode and block bitmaps. In addition, @code{mke2fs} must
also initialize the inode tables by clearing them with zeros, create the
root and lost+found directories, and reserve the reserved inodes.
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_initialize (const char *@var{name}, int @var{flags}, struct ext2_super_block *@var{param}, io_manager @var{manager}, ext2_filsys *@var{ret_fs})
This function is used by the @code{mke2fs} program to initialize a
filesystem. The @code{ext2fs_initialize} function creates a filesystem
handle which is returned in @var{ret_fs} that has been properly setup
for a filesystem to be located in @var{name}, using the io_manager
@var{manager}. The prototype superblock in @var{param} is used to
supply parameters such as the number of blocks in the filesystem, the
block size, etc.
The @code{ext2fs_initialize} function does not actually do any I/O; that
will be done when the application program calls @code{ext2fs_close} or
@code{ext2fs_flush}. Also, this function only initializes the
superblock and group descriptor structures. It does not create the
inode table or the root directory. This must be done by the calling
application, such as @code{mke2fs}.
The following values may be set in the @var{param} prototype superblock;
if a value of 0 is found in a field, @code{ext2fs_initialize} will use a
default value. The calling application should zero out the prototype
entire superblock, and then fill in any appropriate values.
@table @code
@item s_blocks_count
The number of blocks in the filesystem. This parameter is mandatory and
must be set by the calling application.
@item s_inodes_count
The number of inodes in the filesystem. The
default value is determined by calculating the size of the filesystem,
and creating one inode for every 4096 bytes.
@item s_r_blocks_count
The number of blocks which should be reserved for the superuser. The
default value is zero blocks.
@item s_log_block_size
The blocksize of the filesystem. Valid values are 0 (1024 bytes), 1
(2048 bytes), or 2 (4096 bytes). The default blocksize is 1024 bytes.
@item s_log_frag_size
The size of fragments. The ext2 filesystem does not support fragments
(and may never support fragments). Currently this field must be the
same as @code{s_log_block_size}.
@item s_first_data_block
The first data block for the filesystem. For filesystem with a
blocksize of 1024 bytes, this value must be at least 1, since the
superblock is located in block number 1. For filesystems with larger
blocksizes, the superblock is still located at an offset of 1024 bytes,
so the superblock is located in block number 0. By default, this value
is set to 1 for filesystems with a block size of 1024 bytes, or 0 for
filesystems with larger blocksizes.
@item s_max_mnt_count
This field defines the number of times that the filesystem can be
mounted before it should be checked using @code{e2fsck}. When
@code{e2fsck} is run without the @samp{-f} option, @code{e2fsck} will
skip the filesystem check if the number of times that the filesystem has
been mounted is less than @code{s_max_mnt_count} and if the interval
between the last time a filesystem check was performed and the current
time is less than @code{s_checkinterval} (see below). The default value
of @code{s_max_mnt_count} is 20.
@item s_checkinterval
This field defines the minimal interval between filesystem checks. See
the previous entry for a discussion of how this field is used by
@code{e2fsck}. The default value of this field is 180 days (six
months).
@item s_errors
This field defines the behavior which should be used by the kernel of
errors are detected in the filesystem. Possible values include:
@table @samp
@item EXT2_ERRORS_CONTINUE
Continue execution when errors are detected.
@item EXT2_ERRORS_RO
Remount the filesystem read-only.
@item EXT2_ERRORS_PANIC
Panic.
@end table
The default behavior is @samp{EXT2_ERRORS_CONTINUE}.
@end table
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_allocate_tables (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
Allocate space for the inode table and the block and inode bitmaps. The
inode tables and block and inode bitmaps aren't actually initialized;
this function just allocates the space for them.
@end deftypefun
@c ----------------------------------------------------------------------
@node Filesystem flag functions, , Initializing a filesystem, Filesystem-level functions
@comment node-name, next, previous, up
@subsection Filesystem flag functions
The filesystem handle has a number of flags which can be manipulated
using the following function. Some of these flags affect how the
libext2fs filesystem behaves; others are provided solely for the
application's convenience.
@deftypefun void ext2fs_mark_changed (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
@deftypefunx int ext2fs_test_changed (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
This flag indicates whether or not the filesystem has been changed.
It is not used by the ext2fs library.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun void ext2fs_mark_super_dirty (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
Mark the filesystem @var{fs} as being dirty; this will cause
the superblock information to be flushed out when @code{ext2fs_close} is
called. @code{ext2fs_mark_super_dirty} will also set the filesystem
changed flag. The dirty flag is automatically cleared by
@code{ext2fs_flush} when the superblock is written to disk.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun void ext2fs_mark_valid (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
@deftypefunx void ext2fs_unmark_valid (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
@deftypefunx int ext2fs_test_valid (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
This flag indicates whether or not the filesystem is free of errors.
It is not used by libext2fs, and is solely for the application's
convenience.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun void ext2fs_mark_ib_dirty (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
@deftypefunx void ext2fs_mark_bb_dirty (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
@deftypefunx int ext2fs_test_ib_dirty (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
@deftypefunx int ext2fs_test_bb_dirty (ext2_filsys @var{fs})
These flags indicate whether or not the inode or block bitmaps have been
modified. If the flag is set, it will cause the appropriate bitmap
to be written when the filesystem is closed or flushed.

@subsection File handle manipulation
The file handle functions much like a file descriptor in the Linux/POSIX
file I/O system calls. Unlike the Linux/POSIX system calls, files are
opened via inode numbers instead of via pathnames. To resolve a
pathname to an inode number, use the function @code{ext2fs_namei} or to
create a new file, use @code{ext2fs_new_inode} and @code{ext2fs_link}.
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_file_open2 (ext2_filsys @var{fs}, ext2_ino_t @var{ino}, struct ext2_inode *@var{inode}, int @var{flags}, ext2_file_t *@var{ret})
@deftypefunx errcode_t ext2fs_file_open (ext2_filsys @var{fs}, ext2_ino_t @var{ino}, int @var{flags}, ext2_file_t *@var{ret})
Opens a file identified by inode number @var{ino} in filesystem @var{fs}
and returns a file handle in @var{ret}. If an inode structure is
provided in @var{inode}, then it is used instead of reading the inode
from the filesystem.
The @var{flags} argument contains a bitmask of flags which control how
the file should be opened.
@table @code
@item EXT2_FILE_WRITE
Open the file for reading and writing. Without this flag, the file is
opened for writing only.
@item EXT2_FILE_CREATE
Create the file if it is not already present.
@end table
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun ext2_filsys ext2fs_file_get_fs (ext2_file_t @var{file})

@var{buf}. The number of bytes that was actually read is returned
via @var{got}.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_file_write (ext2_file_t @var{file}, const void *@var{buf}, unsigned int @var{nbytes}, unsigned int *@var{written})

@subsection Iterating over inodes in a filesystem
The inode_scan abstraction is useful for iterating over all the inodes
in a filesystem.
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_open_inode_scan (ext2_filsys @var{fs}, int @var{buffer_blocks}, ext2_inode_scan *@var{scan})
Initialize the iteration variable @var{scan}. This variable is used by
@code{ext2fs_get_next_inode}. The @var{buffer_blocks} parameter
controls how many blocks of the inode table are read in at a time. A
large number of blocks requires more memory, but reduces the overhead in
seeking and reading from the disk. If @var{buffer_blocks} is zero, a
suitable default value will be used.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun void ext2fs_close_inode_scan (ext2_inode_scan @var{scan})
Release the memory associated with @var{scan} and invalidate it.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_get_next_inode (ext2_inode_scan @var{scan}, ext2_ino_t *@var{ino}, struct ext2_inode *@var{inode})
This function returns the next inode from the filesystem; the inode
number of the inode is stored in @var{ino}, and the inode is stored in
@var{inode}.
If the inode is located in a block that has been marked as bad,
@code{ext2fs_get_next_inode} will return the error
@code{EXT2_ET_BAD_BLOCK_IN_INODE_TABLE}.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_inode_scan_goto_blockgroup (ext2_inode_scan @var{scan}, int @var{group})
Start the inode scan at a particular ext2 blockgroup, @var{group}.
This function may be safely called at any time while @var{scan} is valid.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun void ext2fs_set_inode_callback (ext2_inode_scan @var{scan}, errcode_t (*done_group)(ext2_filsys @var{fs}, ext2_inode_scan @var{scan}, dgrp_t @var{group}, void * @var{private}), void *@var{done_group_data})
Register a callback function which will be called by
@code{ext2_get_next_inode} when all of the inodes in a block group have
been processed.
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun int ext2fs_inode_scan_flags (ext2_inode_scan @var{scan}, int @var{set_flags}, int @var{clear_flags})
Set the scan_flags @var{set_flags} and clear the scan_flags @var{clear_flags}.
The following flags can be set using this interface:
@table @samp
@item EXT2_SF_SKIP_MISSING_ITABLE
When a block group is missing an inode table, skip it. If this flag is
not set @code{ext2fs_get_next_inode} will return the error
EXT2_ET_MISSING_INODE_TABLE.
@end table

@subsection Iterating over blocks in an inode
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_block_iterate (ext2_filsys @var{fs}, ext2_ino_t @var{ino}, int @var{flags}, char *block_buf, int (*func)(ext2_filsys @var{fs}, blk_t *@var{blocknr}, int @var{blockcnt}, void *@var{private}), void *@var{private})
Iterate over all of the blocks in inode number @var{ino} in filesystem
@var{fs}, by calling the function @var{func} for each block in the
inode. The @var{block_buf} parameter should either be NULL, or if the
@code{ext2fs_block_iterate} function is called repeatedly, the overhead
of allocating and freeing scratch memory can be avoided by passing a
pointer to a scratch buffer which must be at least as big as three times the
filesystem's blocksize.
The @var{flags} parameter controls how the iterator will function:
@table @samp
@item BLOCK_FLAG_HOLE
This flag indicates that the interator function should be called on
blocks where the block number is zero (also known as ``holes''.) It is
also known as BLOCK_FLAG_APPEND, since it is also used by functions
such as ext2fs_expand_dir() to add a new block to an inode.
@item BLOCK_FLAG_DEPTH_TRAVERSE
This flag indicates that the iterator function for the
indirect, doubly indirect, etc. blocks should be called after all
of the blocks contained in the indirect blocks are processed.
This is useful if you are going to be deallocating blocks from an
inode.
@item BLOCK_FLAG_DATA_ONLY
This flag indicates that the iterator function should be
called for data blocks only.
@end table
The callback function @var{func} is called with a number of parameters;
the @var{fs} and @var{private} parameters are self-explanatory, and
their values are taken from the parameters to
@code{ext2fs_block_iterate}. (The @var{private} data structure is
generally used by callers to @code{ext2fs_block_iterate} so that some
private data structure can be passed to the callback function. The
@var{blockcnt} parameter, if non-negative, indicates the logical block
number of a data block in the inode. If @var{blockcnt} is less than
zero, then @var{func} was called on a metadata block, and @var{blockcnt}
will be one of the following values: BLOCK_COUNT_IND, BLOCK_COUNT_DIND,
BLOCK_COUNT_TIND, or BLOCK_COUNT_TRANSLATOR. The @var{blocknr} is a
pointer to the inode or indirect block entry listing physical block
number. The callback function may modify the physical block number, if
it returns the @var{BLOCK_CHANGED} flag.
The callback function @var{func} returns a result code which is composed of
the logical OR of the following flags:
@table @samp
@item BLOCK_CHANGED
This flag indicates that callback function has modified the physical
block number pointed to by @var{blocknr}.
@item BLOCK_ABORT
This flag requests that @code{ext2fs_block_iterate} to stop immediately
and return to the caller.
@end table
@end deftypefun
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_block_iterate2 (ext2_filsys @var{fs}, ext2_ino_t @var{ino}, int @var{flags}, char *@var{block}_buf, int (*func)(ext2_filsys @var{fs}, blk_t *@var{blocknr}, e2_blkcnt_t @var{blockcnt}, blk_t @var{ref_blk}, int @var{ref_offset}, void *@var{private}), void *@var{private})
This function is much like @code{ext2fs_block_iterate}, except that the
@var{blockcnt} type is a 64-bit signed quantity, to support larger
files, and the addition of the @var{ref_blk} and @var{ref_offset}
arguments passed to the callback function, which identify the location

This function iterates over all of the directory entries in the

either be NULL, or if the @code{ext2fs_dir_iterate} function is

which must be at least as big as the filesystem's blocksize.

@subsection Directory-block list management
The dblist abstraction stores a list of blocks belonging to
directories. This list can be useful when a program needs to interate
over all directory entries in a filesystem; @code{e2fsck} does this in
pass 2 of its operations, and @code{debugfs} needs to do this when it is
trying to turn an inode number into a pathname.

This iterator takes reads in the directory block indicated in each
dblist entry, and calls @var{func} for each directory entry in each

@node Inode count functions, , Directory-block list management, EXT2 data abstractions
@comment node-name, next, previous, up
@subsection Inode count functions
The icount abstraction is a specialized data type used by @code{e2fsck}
to store how many times a particular inode is referenced by the
filesystem. This is used twice; once to store the actual number of times
that the inode is reference; and once to store the claimed number of times
the inode is referenced according to the inode structure.
This abstraction is designed to be extremely efficient for storing this
sort of information, by taking advantage of the following properties of
inode counts, namely (1) inode counts are very often zero (because
the inode is currently not in use), and (2) many files have a inode
count of 1 (because they are a file which has no additional hard links).
@deftypefun errcode_t ext2fs_create_icount2 (ext2_filsys @var{fs}, int @var{flags}, int @var{size}, ext2_icount_t @var{hint}, ext2_icount_t *@var{ret})
Creates an icount structure for a filesystem @var{fs}, with initial space
for @var{size} inodes whose count is greater than 1. The @var{flags}
parameter is either 0 or @code{EXT2_ICOUNT_OPT_INCREMENT}, which
indicates that icount structure should be able to increment inode counts
quickly. The icount structure is returned in @var{ret}. The returned
icount structure initially has a count of zero for all inodes.
The @var{hint} parameter allows the caller to optionally pass in another
icount structure which is used to initialize the array of inodes whose
count is greater than 1. It is used purely as a speed optimization so
that the icount structure can determine in advance which inodes are
likely to contain a count grater than 1.
