Function

GLibset_prgname

Declaration

void
g_set_prgname (
  const gchar* prgname
)

Description

Sets the name of the program. This name should not be localized, in contrast to g_set_application_name().

If you are using GApplication the program name is set in g_application_run(). In case of GDK or GTK+ it is set in gdk_init(), which is called by gtk_init() and the GtkApplication::startup handler. The program name is found by taking the last component of argv[0].

Since GLib 2.72, this function can be called multiple times and is fully thread safe. Prior to GLib 2.72, this function could only be called once per process.

Parameters

prgname const gchar*
 

The name of the program.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
 The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
