#ifndef _SCRATCH_BUFFER_H
#define _SCRATCH_BUFFER_H

/* Scratch buffers with a default stack allocation and fallback to
   heap allocation.  It is expected that this function is used in this
   way:

     struct scratch_buffer tmpbuf;
     scratch_buffer_init (&tmpbuf);

     while (!function_that_uses_buffer (tmpbuf.data, tmpbuf.length))
       if (!scratch_buffer_grow (&tmpbuf))
	 return -1;

     scratch_buffer_free (&tmpbuf);
     return 0;

   The allocation functions (scratch_buffer_grow,
   scratch_buffer_grow_preserve, scratch_buffer_set_array_size) make
   sure that the heap allocation, if any, is freed, so that the code
   above does not have a memory leak.  The buffer still remains in a
   state that can be deallocated using scratch_buffer_free, so a loop
   like this is valid as well:

     struct scratch_buffer tmpbuf;
     scratch_buffer_init (&tmpbuf);

     while (!function_that_uses_buffer (tmpbuf.data, tmpbuf.length))
       if (!scratch_buffer_grow (&tmpbuf))
	 break;

     scratch_buffer_free (&tmpbuf);

   scratch_buffer_grow and scratch_buffer_grow_preserve are guaranteed
   to grow the buffer by at least 512 bytes.  This means that when
   using the scratch buffer as a backing store for a non-character
   array whose element size, in bytes, is 512 or smaller, the scratch
   buffer only has to grow once to make room for at least one more
   element.
