gboolean g_unix_connection_send_credentials ( GUnixConnection* connection, GCancellable* cancellable, GError** error )
Passes the credentials of the current user the receiving side
of the connection. The receiving end has to call
g_unix_connection_receive_credentials() (or similar) to accept the credentials.
As well as sending the credentials this also writes a single NUL byte to the stream, as this is required for credentials passing to work on some implementations.
This method can be expected to be available on the following platforms:
- Linux since GLib 2.26
- FreeBSD since GLib 2.26
- GNU/kFreeBSD since GLib 2.36
- Solaris, Illumos and OpenSolaris since GLib 2.40
- GNU/Hurd since GLib 2.40
