Struct

GLibPatternSpec

Description [src]

struct GPatternSpec {
  /* No available fields */
}

A GPatternSpec struct is the ‘compiled’ form of a pattern. This structure is opaque and its fields cannot be accessed directly.

Constructors

g_pattern_spec_new

Compiles a pattern to a GPatternSpec.

Instance methods

g_pattern_spec_copy

Copies pspec in a new GPatternSpec.

Available since: 2.70

g_pattern_spec_equal

Compares two compiled pattern specs and returns whether they will match the same set of strings.

g_pattern_spec_free

Frees the memory allocated for the GPatternSpec.

g_pattern_spec_match

Matches a string against a compiled pattern. Passing the correct length of the string given is mandatory. The reversed string can be omitted by passing NULL, this is more efficient if the reversed version of the string to be matched is not at hand, as g_pattern_match() will only construct it if the compiled pattern requires reverse matches.

Available since: 2.70

g_pattern_spec_match_string

Matches a string against a compiled pattern. If the string is to be matched against more than one pattern, consider using g_pattern_match() instead while supplying the reversed string.

Available since: 2.70
