Method

GioFileget_parse_name

Declaration

char*
g_file_get_parse_name (
  GFile* file
)

Description

Gets the parse name of the file. A parse name is a UTF-8 string that describes the file such that one can get the GFile back using g_file_parse_name().

This is generally used to show the GFile as a nice full-pathname kind of string in a user interface, like in a location entry.

For local files with names that can safely be converted to UTF-8 the pathname is used, otherwise the IRI is used (a form of URI that allows UTF-8 characters unescaped).

This call does no blocking I/O.

Return value

Returns: char*
 

A string containing the GFiles parse name. The returned string should be freed with g_free() when no longer needed.

 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.
