Declaration [src]

g_ptr_array_copy (
  GPtrArray* array,
  GCopyFunc func,
  gpointer user_data

Description [src]

Makes a full (deep) copy of a GPtrArray.

func, as a GCopyFunc, takes two arguments, the data to be copied and a user_data pointer. On common processor architectures, it’s safe to pass NULL as user_data if the copy function takes only one argument. You may get compiler warnings from this though if compiling with GCC’s -Wcast-function-type warning.

If func is NULL, then only the pointers (and not what they are pointing to) are copied to the new GPtrArray.

The copy of array will have the same GDestroyNotify for its elements as array. The copy will also be NULL terminated if (and only if) the source array is.
