Method

GioFilemake_directory

Declaration

gboolean
g_file_make_directory (
  GFile* file,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error
)

Description

Creates a directory. Note that this will only create a child directory of the immediate parent directory of the path or URI given by the GFile. To recursively create directories, see g_file_make_directory_with_parents(). This function will fail if the parent directory does not exist, setting error to G_IO_ERROR_NOT_FOUND. If the file system doesn’t support creating directories, this function will fail, setting error to G_IO_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED.

For a local GFile the newly created directory will have the default (current) ownership and permissions of the current process.

If cancellable is not NULL, then the operation can be cancelled by triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation was cancelled, the error G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED will be returned.

Parameters

cancellable GCancellable
 

Optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

 The argument can be NULL.
 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
error GError **
  The return location for a GError*, or NULL.

Return value

Returns: gboolean
 

TRUE on successful creation, FALSE otherwise.
