Method

GioDataInputStreamread_upto_async

since: 2.26

Declaration

void
g_data_input_stream_read_upto_async (
  GDataInputStream* stream,
  const gchar* stop_chars,
  gssize stop_chars_len,
  gint io_priority,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
  gpointer user_data
)

Description

The asynchronous version of g_data_input_stream_read_upto(). It is an error to have two outstanding calls to this function.

In contrast to g_data_input_stream_read_until(), this function does not consume the stop character. You have to use g_data_input_stream_read_byte() to get it before calling g_data_input_stream_read_upto() again.

Note that stop_chars may contain ‘\0’ if stop_chars_len is specified.

When the operation is finished, callback will be called. You can then call g_data_input_stream_read_upto_finish() to get the result of the operation.
