int pr_var_delete(const char *name);

/* Returns TRUE if the given variable name exists in the Variables table,
 * FALSE if not.  A return value of -1 indicates an error, in which case
 * errno will be set appropiately.
int pr_var_exists(const char *name);

/* Return the string associated with the given variable name.  Returns NULL
 * if there was an error, such as no matching value set for the given name,
 * or no string set for that variable.
const char *pr_var_get(const char *name);

/* Returns the next name in the Variables table; NULL is returned if there
 * are no more variable names to return.  If desc is not NULL, it will be set
 * to the description associated with the given variable.  This function is
 * primarily for use in iterating through the current list of registered
 * names, for informational purposes.
const char *pr_var_next(const char **desc);

/* Remove the given variable name from the table.  Returns 0 on success, -1
 * if there was an error.
int pr_var_remove(const char *name);

/* Rewinds the iterator used by pr_var_next() to the start of the list.
void pr_var_rewind(void);

/* Set a value to be associated with the given variable name.  Variable
 * names MUST start with a '%' character.  Variable names associated with
 * contributed/third-party modules should be of the format "%{name}".  The
 * core proftpd engine reserves the non-"%{var}" syntax for future use.
 * A descriptive string can also be given, as a sort of informative label for
 * the purpose of the variable being set.
 * The type of value being set must be indicated.  A type of PR_VAR_TYPE_STR
 * indicates that val should be handled as a NUL-terminated string.
 * The PR_VAR_TYPE_FUNC type indicates that val is a function pointer,
 * implementing "virtual" strings.  The function prototype for a
 * PR_VAR_TYPE_FUNC val is:
 *  const char *(*func)(void *data, size_t datasz);
 * If not NULL, the data and datasz parameters will be passed to the function
 * pointer/callbacks.  These parameters not useful when setting plain strings
 * or numbers.
 * The values associated with the given name are kept in memory allocated
 * from the given pool; it is therefore the caller's responsibility to
 * make sure the pool used has a sufficient lifetime for retaining the
 * values for use by consumers of the Variables API.
 * If there is a value already associated with the given name, its value
 * is overwritten with the given values.  The pr_var_exists() function can
 * be used to detect this case.  The pr_var_delete() function is used
 * to explicitly remove variables from the table.  However, since the memory
 * is allocated from the pool of the caller of pr_var_set(), deleting
 * a variable from the table does not free that memory; it is the
 * pr_var_set() caller's responsibility to recover memory.
 * Returns -1 if there was an error processing the arguments (e.g. an
 * invalid type, NULL pool, name, or value, or if val is non-NULL but datasz
 * is zero).
