g_file_get_parse_name (
  GFile* file


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

Type: 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.
