Method

GioSocketListeneraccept_socket

Declaration

GSocket*
g_socket_listener_accept_socket (
  GSocketListener* listener,
  GObject** source_object,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error
)

Description

Blocks waiting for a client to connect to any of the sockets added to the listener. Returns the GSocket that was accepted.

If you want to accept the high-level GSocketConnection, not a GSocket, which is often the case, then you should use g_socket_listener_accept() instead.

If source_object is not NULL it will be filled out with the source object specified when the corresponding socket or address was added to the listener.

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.

Available since:2.22
