const gchar* const*
g_application_command_line_get_environ (
  GApplicationCommandLine* cmdline


Gets the contents of the ‘environ’ variable of the command line invocation, as would be returned by g_get_environ(), ie as a NULL-terminated list of strings in the form ‘NAME=VALUE’. The strings may contain non-utf8 data.

The remote application usually does not send an environment. Use G_APPLICATION_SEND_ENVIRONMENT to affect that. Even with this flag set it is possible that the environment is still not available (due to invocation messages from other applications).

The return value should not be modified or freed and is valid for as long as cmdline exists.

See g_application_command_line_getenv() if you are only interested in the value of a single environment variable.

Return value

Type: An array of filename

the environment strings, or `NULL` if they were not sent.

The array is NULL-terminated.
The data is owned by the instance.
Each element is a file system path, using the OS encoding.
