           old_len, size_t new_len, void *arg)
           Type definition for a callback that is invoked whenever data is
           added or removed from an evbuffer.

   Functions
           unsigned char * evbuffer_find (struct evbuffer *buffer, const
           unsigned char *what, size_t len)

           evbuffer *buffer)
           Obsolete alias for evbuffer_readln(buffer, NULL, EOL_STYLE_ANY).

Typedef Documentation
   typedef void(* evbuffer_cb)(struct evbuffer *buffer, size_t old_len, size_t
   new_len, void *arg)
       Type definition for a callback that is invoked whenever data is added
       or removed from an evbuffer. An evbuffer may have one or more callbacks
       set at a time. The order in which they are executed is undefined.

       A callback function may add more callbacks, or remove itself from the
       list of callbacks, or add or remove data from the buffer. It may not
       remove another callback from the list.

       If a callback adds or removes data from the buffer or from another
       buffer, this can cause a recursive invocation of your callback or other
       callbacks. If you ask for an infinite loop, you might just get one:
       watch out!

       Parameters:
           buffer the buffer whose size has changed
           old_len the previous length of the buffer
           new_len the current length of the buffer
           arg a pointer to user data


Function Documentation
   unsigned char* evbuffer_find (struct evbuffer *buffer, const unsigned char
   *what, size_tlen)
       Find a string within an evbuffer. Parameters:
           buffer the evbuffer to be searched
           what the string to be searched for
           len the length of the search string

       Returns:
           a pointer to the beginning of the search string, or NULL if the
           search failed.


   char* evbuffer_readline (struct evbuffer *buffer)
       Obsolete alias for evbuffer_readln(buffer, NULL, EOL_STYLE_ANY).
       Deprecated
           This function is deprecated because its behavior is not correct for
           almost any protocol, and also because it's wholly subsumed by
           evbuffer_readln().

       Parameters:
           buffer the evbuffer to read from

       Returns:
           pointer to a single line, or NULL if an error occurred


   void evbuffer_setcb (struct evbuffer *buffer, evbuffer_cbcb, void *cbarg)
       Replace all callbacks on an evbuffer with a single new callback, or
       remove them. Subsequent calls to evbuffer_setcb() replace callbacks set
       by previous calls. Setting the callback to NULL removes any previously
       set callback.

       Deprecated
           This function is deprecated because it clears all previous
           callbacks set on the evbuffer, which can cause confusing behavior
           if multiple parts of the code all want to add their own callbacks
           on a buffer. Instead, use evbuffer_add(), evbuffer_del(), and
           evbuffer_setflags() to manage your own evbuffer callbacks without
           interfering with callbacks set by others.

       Parameters:
           buffer the evbuffer to be monitored
           cb the callback function to invoke when the evbuffer is modified,
           or NULL to remove all callbacks.
           cbarg an argument to be provided to the callback function
