Method

GLibSequencesearch_iter

since: 2.14

Declaration

GSequenceIter*
g_sequence_search_iter (
  GSequence* seq,
  gpointer data,
  GSequenceIterCompareFunc iter_cmp,
  gpointer cmp_data
)

Description

Like g_sequence_search(), but uses a GSequenceIterCompareFunc instead of a GCompareDataFunc as the compare function.

iter_cmp is called with two iterators pointing into seq. It should return 0 if the iterators are equal, a negative value if the first iterator comes before the second, and a positive value if the second iterator comes before the first.

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

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

Available since: 2.14

This method is not directly available to language bindings.

Parameters

data

Type: gpointer

Data for the new item.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.
iter_cmp

Type: GSequenceIterCompareFunc

The function used to compare iterators in the sequence.

cmp_data

Type: gpointer

User data passed to iter_cmp.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Return value

Type: GSequenceIter

A GSequenceIter pointing to the position in seq where data would have been inserted according to iter_cmp and cmp_data.

The data is owned by the instance.
