Struct

GModuleModule

Description [src]

struct GModule {
  /* No available fields */
}

The GModule struct is an opaque data structure to represent a [dynamically-loaded module][glib-Dynamic-Loading-of-Modules]. It should only be accessed via the following functions.

Functions

g_module_build_path

A portable way to build the filename of a module. The platform-specific prefix and suffix are added to the filename, if needed, and the result is added to the directory, using the correct separator character.

g_module_error

Gets a string describing the last module error.

g_module_error_quark
No description available.
g_module_open

A thin wrapper function around g_module_open_full()

g_module_open_full

Opens a module. If the module has already been opened, its reference count is incremented.

Available since: 2.70

g_module_supported

Checks if modules are supported on the current platform.

Instance methods

g_module_close

Closes a module.

g_module_make_resident

Ensures that a module will never be unloaded. Any future g_module_close() calls on the module will be ignored.

g_module_name

Returns the filename that the module was opened with.

g_module_symbol

Gets a symbol pointer from a module, such as one exported by G_MODULE_EXPORT. Note that a valid symbol can be NULL.
