Method

GLibIOChannelget_flags

Declaration

GIOFlags
g_io_channel_get_flags (
  GIOChannel* channel
)

Description

Gets the current flags for a GIOChannel, including read-only flags such as G_IO_FLAG_IS_READABLE.

The values of the flags G_IO_FLAG_IS_READABLE and G_IO_FLAG_IS_WRITABLE are cached for internal use by the channel when it is created. If they should change at some later point (e.g. partial shutdown of a socket with the UNIX shutdown() function), the user should immediately call g_io_channel_get_flags() to update the internal values of these flags.

Return value

Returns: GIOFlags
 

The flags which are set on the channel.
