Function

GLibclose

Declaration

gboolean
g_close (
  gint fd,
  GError** error
)

Description

This wraps the close() call; in case of error, %errno will be preserved, but the error will also be stored as a GError in error.

Besides using GError, there is another major reason to prefer this function over the call provided by the system; on Unix, it will attempt to correctly handle EINTR, which has platform-specific semantics.

Available since:2.36

Parameters

fd gint
 

A file descriptor.

error GError **
  The return location for a GError*, or NULL.

Return value

Returns: gboolean
 

TRUE on success, FALSE if there was an error.
