Declaration [src]

g_input_stream_read_all_finish (
  GInputStream* stream,
  GAsyncResult* result,
  gsize* bytes_read,
  GError** error

Description [src]

Finishes an asynchronous stream read operation started with g_input_stream_read_all_async().

As a special exception to the normal conventions for functions that use GError, if this function returns FALSE (and sets error) then bytes_read will be set to the number of bytes that were successfully read before the error was encountered. This functionality is only available from C. If you need it from another language then you must write your own loop around g_input_stream_read_async().

Available since: 2.44



Type: GAsyncResult

A GAsyncResult.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Type: gsize*

Location to store the number of bytes that was read from the stream.

The argument will be set by the function.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE on success, FALSE if there was an error.
