Declaration [src]

g_hostname_is_non_ascii (
  const gchar* hostname

Description [src]

Tests if hostname contains Unicode characters. If this returns TRUE, you need to encode the hostname with g_hostname_to_ascii() before using it in non-IDN-aware contexts.

Note that a hostname might contain a mix of encoded and unencoded segments, and so it is possible for g_hostname_is_non_ascii() and g_hostname_is_ascii_encoded() to both return TRUE for a name.

Available since:2.22
