Declaration

GTreeNode*
g_tree_insert_node (
  GTree* tree,
  gpointer key,
  gpointer value
)

Description

Inserts a key/value pair into a GTree.

If the given key already exists in the GTree its corresponding value is set to the new value. If you supplied a value_destroy_func when creating the GTree, the old value is freed using that function. If you supplied a key_destroy_func when creating the GTree, the passed key is freed using that function.

The tree is automatically ‘balanced’ as new key/value pairs are added, so that the distance from the root to every leaf is as small as possible. The cost of maintaining a balanced tree while inserting new key/value result in a O(n log(n)) operation where most of the other operations are O(log(n)).
