The return result of this function must be freed with g_free(). The caller is also responsible for closing all of the file descriptors.

If length is non-NULL then it is set to the number of file descriptors in the returned array. The returned array is also terminated with -1.

This function never returns NULL. In case there are no file descriptors contained in message, an empty array is returned.
