g_io_channel_read_to_end (
  GIOChannel* channel,
  gchar** str_return,
  gsize* length,
  GError** error


Reads all the remaining data from the file.



Type: An array of guint8

Location to store a pointer to a string holding the remaining data in the GIOChannel. This data should be freed with g_free() when no longer needed. This data is terminated by an extra nul character, but there may be other nuls in the intervening data.

The argument will be set by the function.
The length of the array is specified in the length argument.
The instance takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.

Type: gsize*

Location to store length of the data.

The argument will be set by the function.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: GIOStatus

G_IO_STATUS_NORMAL on success. This function never returns G_IO_STATUS_EOF.
