Declaration [src]

g_utf8_strreverse (
  const gchar* str,
  gssize len

Description [src]

Reverses a UTF-8 string. str must be valid UTF-8 encoded text. (Use g_utf8_validate() on all text before trying to use UTF-8 utility functions with it.)

This function is intended for programmatic uses of reversed strings. It pays no attention to decomposed characters, combining marks, byte order marks, directional indicators (LRM, LRO, etc) and similar characters which might need special handling when reversing a string for display purposes.

Note that unlike g_strreverse(), this function returns newly-allocated memory, which should be freed with g_free() when no longer needed.

Available since: 2.2



Type: const gchar*

A UTF-8 encoded string.

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

Type: gssize

The maximum length of str to use, in bytes. If len < 0, then the string is nul-terminated.

Return value

Type: gchar*

A newly-allocated string which is the reverse of str.

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.
