g_file_has_prefix (
  GFile* file,
  GFile* prefix


Checks whether file has the prefix specified by prefix.

In other words, if the names of initial elements of files pathname match prefix. Only full pathname elements are matched, so a path like /foo is not considered a prefix of /foobar, only of /foo/bar.

A GFile is not a prefix of itself. If you want to check for equality, use g_file_equal().

This call does no I/O, as it works purely on names. As such it can sometimes return FALSE even if file is inside a prefix (from a filesystem point of view), because the prefix of file is an alias of prefix.


prefix GFile

Input GFile.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Return value

Returns: gboolean

TRUE if the files parent, grandparent, etc is prefix, FALSE otherwise.
