Function

GLibstrdup_printf

Declaration

gchar*
g_strdup_printf (
  const gchar* format,
  ...
)

Description

Similar to the standard C sprintf() function but safer, since it calculates the maximum space required and allocates memory to hold the result. The returned string should be freed with g_free() when no longer needed.

The returned string is guaranteed to be non-NULL, unless format contains %lc or %ls conversions, which can fail if no multibyte representation is available for the given character.

This function is not directly available to language bindings

Parameters

format

Type: const gchar*

A standard printf() format string, but notice [string precision pitfalls][string-precision]

...

Type: 

The parameters to insert into the format string.

Return value

Type: gchar*

A newly-allocated string holding the result.

The caller of the function takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.
