ssize_t nghttp2_hd_deflate_hd(nghttp2_hd_deflater *deflater, uint8_t *buf, size_t buflen, const nghttp2_nv *nva, size_t nvlen)


Deprecated. Use nghttp2_hd_deflate_hd2() instead.

Deflates the nva, which has the nvlen name/value pairs, into the buf of length buflen.

If buf is not large enough to store the deflated header block, this function fails with nghttp2_error.NGHTTP2_ERR_INSUFF_BUFSIZE. The caller should use nghttp2_hd_deflate_bound() to know the upper bound of buffer size required to deflate given header name/value pairs.

Once this function fails, subsequent call of this function always returns nghttp2_error.NGHTTP2_ERR_HEADER_COMP.

After this function returns, it is safe to delete the nva.

This function returns the number of bytes written to buf if it succeeds, or one of the following negative error codes:


Out of memory.


Deflation process has failed.


The provided buflen size is too small to hold the output.
