// Framework to provide a simple C API to crash reporting for
// applications. By default, if any machine-level exception (e.g.,
// EXC_BAD_ACCESS) occurs, it will be handled by the BreakpadRef
// object as follows:
//
// 1. Create a minidump file (see Breakpad for details)
// 2. Prompt the user (using CFUserNotification)
// 3. Invoke a command line reporting tool to send the minidump to a
// server
//
// By specifying parameters to the BreakpadCreate function, you can
// modify the default behavior to suit your needs and wants and
// desires.
// A service name associated with the original bootstrap parent port, saved in
// OnDemandServer and restored in Inspector.

//
// You can also specify these additional keys for customizable behavior:
// Key: Value:
// BREAKPAD_PRODUCT Product name (e.g., "MyAwesomeProduct")
// This one is used as the key to identify
// the product when uploading. Falls back to
// CFBundleName if not specified.
// REQUIRED
//
// BREAKPAD_PRODUCT_DISPLAY This is the display name, e.g. a pretty
// name for the product when the crash_sender
// pops up UI for the user. Falls back first to
// CFBundleDisplayName and then to
// BREAKPAD_PRODUCT if not specified.
//
// BREAKPAD_VERSION Product version (e.g., 1.2.3), used
// as metadata for crash report. Falls back to
// CFBundleVersion if not specified.
// REQUIRED
//
// BREAKPAD_VENDOR Vendor name, used in UI (e.g. "A report has
// been created that you can send to <vendor>")
//
// BREAKPAD_URL URL destination for reporting
// REQUIRED
//
// BREAKPAD_REPORT_INTERVAL # of seconds between sending
// reports. If an additional report is
// generated within this time, it will
// be ignored. Default: 3600sec.
// Specify 0 to send all reports.
//
// BREAKPAD_SKIP_CONFIRM If true, the reporter will send the report
// without any user intervention.
// Defaults to NO
//
// BREAKPAD_CONFIRM_TIMEOUT Number of seconds before the upload
// confirmation dialog will be automatically
// dismissed (cancelling the upload).
// Default: 300 seconds (min of 60).
// Specify 0 to prevent timeout.
//
// BREAKPAD_SEND_AND_EXIT If true, the handler will exit after sending.
// This will prevent any other handler (e.g.,
// CrashReporter) from getting the crash.
// Defaults TO YES
//
// BREAKPAD_DUMP_DIRECTORY The directory to store crash-dumps
// in. By default, we use
// ~/Library/Breakpad/<BREAKPAD_PRODUCT>
// The path you specify here is tilde-expanded.
//
// BREAKPAD_INSPECTOR_LOCATION The full path to the Inspector executable.
// Defaults to <Framework resources>/Inspector
//
// BREAKPAD_REPORTER_EXE_LOCATION The full path to the Reporter/sender
// executable.
// Default:
// <Framework Resources>/crash_report_sender.app
//
// BREAKPAD_LOGFILES Indicates an array of log file paths that
// should be uploaded at crash time.
//
// BREAKPAD_REQUEST_COMMENTS If true, the message dialog will have a
// text box for the user to enter comments.
// Default: NO
//
// BREAKPAD_REQUEST_EMAIL If true and BREAKPAD_REQUEST_COMMENTS is also
// true, the message dialog will have a text
// box for the user to enter their email address.
// Default: NO
//
// BREAKPAD_SERVER_TYPE A parameter that tells Breakpad how to
// rewrite the upload parameters for a specific
// server type. The currently valid values are
// 'socorro' or 'google'. If you want to add
// other types, see the function in
// crash_report_sender.m that maps parameters to
// URL parameters. Defaults to 'google'.
//
// BREAKPAD_SERVER_PARAMETER_DICT A plist dictionary of static
// parameters that are uploaded to the
// server. The parameters are sent as
// is to the crash server. Their
// content isn't added to the minidump
// but pass as URL parameters when
// uploading theminidump to the crash
// server.
//=============================================================================
// The BREAKPAD_PRODUCT, BREAKPAD_VERSION and BREAKPAD_URL are
// required to have non-NULL values. By default, the BREAKPAD_PRODUCT
// will be the CFBundleName and the BREAKPAD_VERSION will be the
// CFBundleVersion when these keys are present in the bundle's
// Info.plist, which is usually passed in to BreakpadCreate() as an
// NSDictionary (you could also pass in another dictionary that had
// the same keys configured). If the BREAKPAD_PRODUCT or
// BREAKPAD_VERSION are ultimately undefined, BreakpadCreate() will
// fail. You have been warned.
//
// If you are running in a debugger, Breakpad will not install, unless the
// BREAKPAD_IGNORE_DEBUGGER envionment variable is set and/or non-zero.
//
// The BREAKPAD_SKIP_CONFIRM and BREAKPAD_SEND_AND_EXIT default
// values are NO and YES. However, they can be controlled by setting their
// values in a user or global plist.
//
// It's easiest to use Breakpad via the Framework, but if you're compiling the
// code in directly, BREAKPAD_INSPECTOR_LOCATION and
// BREAKPAD_REPORTER_EXE_LOCATION allow you to specify custom paths
// to the helper executables.
//
//=============================================================================
// The following are NOT user-supplied but are documented here for
// completeness. They are calculated by Breakpad during initialization &
// crash-dump generation, or entered in by the user.
//
// BREAKPAD_PROCESS_START_TIME The time, in seconds since the Epoch, the
// process started
//
// BREAKPAD_PROCESS_CRASH_TIME The time, in seconds since the Epoch, the
// process crashed.
//
// BREAKPAD_PROCESS_UP_TIME The total time in milliseconds the process
// has been running. This parameter is not
// set until the crash-dump-generation phase.
//
// BREAKPAD_LOGFILE_KEY_PREFIX Used to find out which parameters in the
// parameter dictionary correspond to log
// file paths.
//
// BREAKPAD_SERVER_PARAMETER_PREFIX This prefix is used by Breakpad
// internally, because Breakpad uses
// the same dictionary internally to
// track both its internal
// configuration parameters and
// parameters meant to be uploaded
// to the server. This string is
// used internally by Breakpad to
// prefix user-supplied parameter
// names so those can be sent to the
// server without leaking Breakpad's
// internal values.
//
// BREAKPAD_ON_DEMAND Used internally to indicate to the
// Reporter that we're sending on-demand,
// not as result of a crash.
//
// BREAKPAD_COMMENTS The text the user provided as comments.
// Only used in crash_report_sender.
// Returns a new BreakpadRef object on success, NULL otherwise.

// Uninstall and release the data associated with |ref|.

// Clients may set an optional callback which gets called when a crash
// occurs. The callback function should return |true| if we should
// handle the crash, generate a crash report, etc. or |false| if we
// should ignore it and forward the crash (normally to CrashReporter).
// Context is a pointer to arbitrary data to make the callback with.
void BreakpadSetFilterCallback(BreakpadRef ref,

// User defined key and value string storage. Generally this is used
// to configure Breakpad's internal operation, such as whether the
// crash_sender should prompt the user, or the filesystem location for
// the minidump file. See Breakpad.h for some parameters that can be
// set. Anything longer than 255 bytes will be truncated. Note that
// the string is converted to UTF8 before truncation, so any multibyte
// character that straddles the 255(256 - 1 for terminator) byte limit
// will be mangled.
//
// A maximum number of 64 key/value pairs are supported. An assert()
// will fire if more than this number are set. Unfortunately, right
// now, the same dictionary is used for both Breakpad's parameters AND
// the Upload parameters.
//
// TODO (nealsid): Investigate how necessary this is if we don't
// automatically upload parameters to the server anymore.
// TODO (nealsid): separate server parameter dictionary from the
// dictionary used to configure Breakpad, and document limits for each
// independently.
