/* pb_decode.h: Functions to decode protocol buffers. Depends on pb_decode.c.
* The main function is pb_decode. You also need an input stream, and the
* field descriptions created by

/* Structure for defining custom input streams. You will need to provide
* a callback function to read the bytes from your storage, which can be
* for example a file or a network socket.
* The callback must conform to these rules:
* 1) Return false on IO errors. This will cause decoding to abort.
* 2) You can use state to store your own data (e.g. buffer pointer),
* and rely on pb_read to verify that no-body reads past bytes_left.
* 3) Your callback may be used with substreams, in which case bytes_left
* is different than from the main stream. Don't use bytes_left to compute
* any pointers.

* Main decoding functions *
/* Decode a single protocol buffers message from input stream into a C structure.
* Returns true on success, false on any failure.
* The actual struct pointed to by dest must match the description in fields.
* Callback fields of the destination structure must be initialized by caller.
* All other fields will be initialized by this function.
* Example usage:
* MyMessage msg = {};
* uint8_t buffer[64];
* pb_istream_t stream;
* // ... read some data into buffer ...
* stream = pb_istream_from_buffer(buffer, count);
* pb_decode(&stream, MyMessage_fields, &msg);

* to default values. This is slightly faster if you need no default values
* and just do memset(struct, 0, sizeof(struct)) yourself.
* This can also be used for 'merging' two messages, i.e. update only the
* fields that exist in the new message.
* Note: If this function returns with an error, it will not release any
* dynamically allocated fields. You will need to call pb_release() yourself.
