Method

GLibBytesnew_from_bytes

Declaration

GBytes*
g_bytes_new_from_bytes (
  GBytes* bytes,
  gsize offset,
  gsize length
)

Description

Creates a GBytes which is a subsection of another GBytes. The offset + length may not be longer than the size of bytes.

A reference to bytes will be held by the newly created GBytes until the byte data is no longer needed.

Since 2.56, if offset is 0 and length matches the size of bytes, then bytes will be returned with the reference count incremented by 1. If bytes is a slice of another GBytes, then the resulting GBytes will reference the same GBytes instead of bytes. This allows consumers to simplify the usage of GBytes when asynchronously writing to streams.

Available since:2.32

Parameters

offset gsize
 

Offset which subsection starts at.

length gsize
 

Length of subsection.

Return value

Returns: GBytes
 

A new GBytes.

 The caller of the method takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
