Virtual Method

GioSeekabletruncate_fn

Declaration [src]

gboolean
truncate_fn (
  GSeekable* seekable,
  goffset offset,
  GCancellable* cancellable,
  GError** error
)

Description [src]

Sets the length of the stream to offset. If the stream was previously larger than offset, the extra data is discarded. If the stream was previously shorter than offset, it is extended with NUL (‘\0’) bytes.

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. If an operation was partially finished when the operation was cancelled the partial result will be returned, without an error.

Parameters

offset

Type: goffset

New length for seekable, in bytes.

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 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 virtual function 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 if successful. If an error has occurred, this function will return FALSE and set error appropriately if present.
