g_io_channel_write_chars (
  GIOChannel* channel,
  const gchar* buf,
  gssize count,
  gsize* bytes_written,
  GError** error


Replacement for g_io_channel_write() with the new API.

On seekable channels with encodings other than NULL or UTF-8, generic mixing of reading and writing is not allowed. A call to g_io_channel_write_chars () may only be made on a channel from which data has been read in the cases described in the documentation for g_io_channel_set_encoding ().



Type: An array of guint8

A buffer to write data from.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Type: gssize

The size of the buffer. If -1, the buffer is taken to be a nul-terminated string.


Type: gsize*

The number of bytes written. This can be nonzero even if the return value is not G_IO_STATUS_NORMAL. If the return value is G_IO_STATUS_NORMAL and the channel is blocking, this will always be equal to count if count >= 0.

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

The status of the operation.
