Declaration [src]

g_unix_is_system_device_path (
  const char* device_path

Description [src]

Determines if device_path is considered a block device path which is only used in implementation of the OS. This is primarily used for hiding mounted volumes that are intended as APIs for programs to read, and system administrators at a shell; rather than something that should, for example, appear in a GUI. For example, the Linux /proc filesystem.

The list of device paths considered ‘system’ ones may change over time.

Available since: 2.56



Type: const char*

A device path, e.g. /dev/loop0 or nfsd

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE if device_path is considered an implementation detail of the OS.
