Method

GLibSequencesearch

Declaration

GSequenceIter*
g_sequence_search (
  GSequence* seq,
  gpointer data,
  GCompareDataFunc cmp_func,
  gpointer cmp_data
)

Description

Returns an iterator pointing to the position where data would be inserted according to cmp_func and cmp_data.

cmp_func is called with two items of the seq, and cmp_data. It should return 0 if the items are equal, a negative value if the first item comes before the second, and a positive value if the second item comes before the first.

If you are simply searching for an existing element of the sequence, consider using g_sequence_lookup().

This function will fail if the data contained in the sequence is unsorted.
