NAME ^

perfSONAR_PS::Topology::ID - A module that provides various utility functions for Topology IDs.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module contains a set of utility functions that are used to interact with Topology IDs.

SYNOPSIS ^

DETAILS ^

API ^

idConstruct($type1, $field1, $type2, $field2, $type3, $field3, $type4, $field4)

    Constructs an a fully-qualified id based on the specified fields. No
    sanity checking is performed to verify that the created ID makes sense.
    The $type parameters are values like 'domain', 'node', etc whereas the
    $field parameter is the ID for that element like "I2" or "HOPI". All
    values past the first blank ("") type or field are ignored.

idIsFQ($id, $type)

    Checks if the specified ID is a fully-qualified ID of the specified
    type. If it is not a fully-qualified id, the function returns 0. If it
    is an incorrect fully-qualified id(e.g. too many elements), it returns
    -1. If it is a correctly specified fully-qualified id, it returns 1.

idAddLevel($id, $new_type, $new_level)

    Takes a fully-qualified id and adds a new level onto it. No sanity
    checking is done, it simply returns the ID created from the values
    requested.

idRemoveLevel($id, $ret_type)

    Takes a fully-qualified id and returns the parent level for the id. If
    you'd like to know the type of the parent, you can add a reference to a
    variable for $ret_type and the function will fill it in with the type
    of the returned id.

    e.g. urn:ogf:network:domain=hopi:node=losa would return
    'urn:ogf:network:domain=hopi' and $ret_type would be filled in with
    'domain'

idBaseLevel($id, $ret_type)

    Returns the base level of the specified id. If you want to be informed
    fo the type of the base element, you can add a reference to a variable
    for $ret_type and the function will fill it in with the type of the
    element.

    e.g. urn:ogf:network:domain=hopi:node=losa would return 'losa' and
    $ret_type would be filled in with 'node'

idEncode($element)

    Performs any necessary encoding of the specified element for inclusion
    in a fully-qualified id.

idDecode($element)

    Decodes the specified element from a fully-qualified id.

idCompare($id1, $id2, $compare_to)

    Compares the given ids to see if they match up to the specified field.
    $compare_to can be any ID element type that the IDs have in common. It
    returns an array containing two values. The first is either 0 or -1 and
    tells whether the function failed or succeeded. If the function failed,
    the next element in the array is the error message.

idSplit($id, $fq, $top_down)

    Splits the specified fully-qualified id into its component elements. If
    $fq is 1, the returns components are all fully-qualified. The components are returned in an array. The
    first value of the array is the 0 or -1 specifying whether the function
    succeeded or failed. The next element is a string for the type of the
    ID. Each subsequent pair of elements corresponds to the type of the
    element followed by the element itself. If $top_down is 0, the order is
    the most specific element to least specific element. If $top_down is 1,
    however, the order is reversed.
