Function

GLibListfree

Declaration

void
g_list_free (
  GList* list
)

Description

Frees all of the memory used by a GList. The freed elements are returned to the slice allocator.

If list elements contain dynamically-allocated memory, you should either use g_list_free_full() or free them manually first.

It can be combined with g_steal_pointer() to ensure the list head pointer is not left dangling:

GList *list_of_borrowed_things = ;  /<!-- -->* (transfer container) *<!-- -->/
g_list_free (g_steal_pointer (&list_of_borrowed_things));

Parameters

list

Type: A list of gpointer

The first link of a GList.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
