Method

GLibVariantItercopy

Declaration

GVariantIter*
g_variant_iter_copy (
  GVariantIter* iter
)

Description

Creates a new heap-allocated GVariantIter to iterate over the container that was being iterated over by iter. Iteration begins on the new iterator from the current position of the old iterator but the two copies are independent past that point.

Use g_variant_iter_free() to free the return value when you no longer need it.

A reference is taken to the container that iter is iterating over and will be related only when g_variant_iter_free() is called.

Available since:2.24
This method is not directly available to language bindings.

Return value

Type: GVariantIter

A new heap-allocated GVariantIter.

The caller of the method takes ownership of the data, and is responsible for freeing it.
