Class

GioUnixFDList

Description

class Gio.UnixFDList : GObject.Object {
  parent_instance: GObject,
  priv: GUnixFDListPrivate*
}

A GUnixFDList contains a list of file descriptors. It owns the file descriptors that it contains, closing them when finalized.

It may be wrapped in a GUnixFDMessage and sent over a GSocket in the G_SOCKET_FAMILY_UNIX family by using g_socket_send_message() and received using g_socket_receive_message().

Before 2.74, <gio/gunixfdlist.h> belonged to the UNIX-specific GIO interfaces, thus you had to use the gio-unix-2.0.pc pkg-config file when using it.

Since 2.74, the API is available for Windows.

Constructors

g_unix_fd_list_new

Creates a new GUnixFDList containing no file descriptors.

since: 2.24

g_unix_fd_list_new_from_array

Creates a new GUnixFDList containing the file descriptors given in fds. The file descriptors become the property of the new list and may no longer be used by the caller. The array itself is owned by the caller.

since: 2.24
