LogString get ( const LogString key) const

Gets a property value.

Parameters
keythe property key.
Returns
the value in this property list with the specified key value or empty string.
LogString getProperty ( const LogString key) const

Calls Properties::get.

Parameters
keythe property key.
Returns
the value in this property list with the specified key value or empty string.
void load ( InputStreamPtr  inStream)

Reads a property list (key and element pairs) from the input stream.

The stream is assumed to be using the ISO 8859-1 character encoding.

Every property occupies one line of the input stream. Each line is terminated by a line terminator (\n or \r or \r\n). Lines from the input stream are processed until end of file is reached on the input stream.

A line that contains only whitespace or whose first non-whitespace character is an ASCII # or ! is ignored (thus, # or ! indicate comment lines).

Every line other than a blank line or a comment line describes one property to be added to the table (except that if a line ends with \, then the following line, if it exists, is treated as a continuation line, as described below). The key consists of all the characters in the line starting with the first non-whitespace character and up to, but not including, the first ASCII =, :, or whitespace character. All of the key termination characters may be included in the key by preceding them with a \. Any whitespace after the key is skipped; if the first non-whitespace character after the key is = or :, then it is ignored and any whitespace characters after it are also skipped. All remaining characters on the line become part of the associated element string. Within the element string, the ASCII escape sequences \t, \n, \r, \, \", \', \ (a backslash and a space), and \uxxxx are recognized and converted to single characters. Moreover, if the last character on the line is \, then the next line is treated as a continuation of the current line; the \ and line terminator are simply discarded, and any leading whitespace characters on the continuation line are also discarded and are not part of the element string.

As an example, each of the following four lines specifies the key "Truth" and the associated element value "Beauty":

 Truth = Beauty
        Truth:Beauty
 Truth         :Beauty
                        

As another example, the following three lines specify a single property:

 fruits           apple, banana, pear, \
                                  cantaloupe, watermelon, \
                                  kiwi, mango
                        

The key is "<code>fruits</code>" and the associated element is:

"apple, banana, pear, cantaloupe, watermelon, kiwi, mango"
                        

Note that a space appears before each \ so that a space will appear after each comma in the final result; the \, line terminator, and leading whitespace on the continuation line are merely discarded and are not replaced by one or more other characters.

As a third example, the line:

cheeses
                        

specifies that the key is "<code>cheeses</code>" and the associated element is the empty string.

Parameters
inStreamthe input stream.
@throw IOException if an error occurred when reading from the input
stream.
std::vector<LogString> propertyNames ( ) const

Returns an enumeration of all the keys in this property list, including distinct keys in the default property list if a key of the same name has not already been found from the main properties list.

Returns
an array of all the keys in this property list, including the keys in the default property list.
LogString put ( const LogString key,
const LogString value 
)

Puts a property value into the collection.

Parameters
keythe key to be placed into this property list.
valuethe value corresponding to key.
Returns
the previous value of the specified key in this property list, or an empty string if it did not have one.
LogString setProperty ( const LogString key,
const LogString value 
)

Calls Properties::put.

Parameters
keythe key to be placed into this property list.
valuethe value corresponding to key.
Returns
the previous value of the specified key in this property list, or an empty string if it did not have one.
