Method

GioDataInputStreamread_until

deprecated: 2.56 

Declaration

char*
g_data_input_stream_read_until (
  GDataInputStream* stream,
  const gchar* stop_chars,
  gsize* length,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error
)

Description

Reads a string from the data input stream, up to the first occurrence of any of the stop characters.

Note that, in contrast to g_data_input_stream_read_until_async(), this function consumes the stop character that it finds.

Don’t use this function in new code. Its functionality is inconsistent with g_data_input_stream_read_until_async(). Both functions will be marked as deprecated in a future release. Use g_data_input_stream_read_upto() instead, but note that that function does not consume the stop character.

Deprecated since: 2.56

Use g_data_input_stream_read_upto() instead, which has more consistent behaviour regarding the stop character.

Parameters

stop_chars

Type: const gchar*

Characters to terminate the read.

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

Type: gsize*

A #gsize to get the length of the data read in.

The argument will be set by the function.
The argument can be NULL.
cancellable

Type: GCancellable

Optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

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

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: char*

A string with the data that was read before encountering any of the stop characters. Set length to a #gsize to get the length of the string. This function will return NULL on an error.

The caller of the method takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
