g_variant_get (
  GVariant* value,
  const gchar* format_string,


Deconstructs a GVariant instance.

Think of this function as an analogue to scanf().

The arguments that are expected by this function are entirely determined by format_string. format_string also restricts the permissible types of value. It is an error to give a value with an incompatible type. See the section on [GVariant format strings][gvariant-format-strings]. Please note that the syntax of the format string is very likely to be extended in the future.

format_string determines the C types that are used for unpacking the values and also determines if the values are copied or borrowed, see the section on [GVariant format strings][gvariant-format-strings-pointers].
