g_buffered_input_stream_read_byte (
  GBufferedInputStream* stream,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error


Tries to read a single byte from the stream or the buffer. Will block during this read.

On success, the byte read from the stream is returned. On end of stream -1 is returned but it’s not an exceptional error and error is not set.

If cancellable is not NULL, then the operation can be cancelled by triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation was cancelled, the error G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED will be returned. If an operation was partially finished when the operation was cancelled the partial result will be returned, without an error.

On error -1 is returned and error is set accordingly.



Type: GCancellable

Optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: int

The byte read from the stream, or -1 on end of stream or error.
