As_record : C client: How can I clone it?

At certain part of the code, I want to simply make a deep copy of the as_record object.

Is there any API or sample code?

thank you -Vikrant

Most users copy as_record data into their own data structures before processing. There are other cases where incrementing the ref count (as_val_reserve()) on record, bin, list or map values is optimal because copied record is not modified or the original record state is no longer needed.

In the rare case where both source and target records need to be completely independent of each other (zero shared ref values), I suggest using something like this:

#include <aerospike/as_arraylist.h>
#include <aerospike/as_bin.h>
#include <aerospike/as_geojson.h>
#include <aerospike/as_hashmap.h>
#include <aerospike/as_hashmap_iterator.h>
#include <aerospike/as_nil.h>
#include <aerospike/as_record.h>

// Deep copy as_val to either local or heap depending on type.
static void
as_val_copy(as_val* src, as_val* trg, as_val** trgp)
{
	if (! src) {
		*trgp = (as_val*)&as_nil;
		return;
	}

	switch (src->type) {
		case AS_NIL: {
			*trgp = (as_val*)&as_nil;
			break;
		}
		case AS_INTEGER: {
			as_integer* s = (as_integer*)src;

			if (trg) {
				as_integer_init((as_integer*)trg, s->value);
				*trgp = trg;

			else {
				*trgp = (as_val*)as_integer_new(s->value);
			}
			break;
		}
		case AS_DOUBLE: {
			as_double* s = (as_double*)src;

			sc[len] = 0;
