Declaration

gssize
g_output_stream_splice (
  GOutputStream* stream,
  GInputStream* source,
  GOutputStreamSpliceFlags flags,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error
)

Description

Splices an input stream into an output stream.

Parameters

source

Type: GInputStream

A GInputStream.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
flags

Type: GOutputStreamSpliceFlags

A set of GOutputStreamSpliceFlags.

cancellable

Type: GCancellable

Optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.
error

Type: GError **

The return location for an error.

The argument can be NULL.
The argument will be set to NULL by the function if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set and the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gssize

A #gssize containing the size of the data spliced, or -1 if an error occurred. Note that if the number of bytes spliced is greater than G_MAXSSIZE, then that will be returned, and there is no way to determine the actual number of bytes spliced.
