g_boxed_type_register_static (
  const gchar* name,
  GBoxedCopyFunc boxed_copy,
  GBoxedFreeFunc boxed_free


This function creates a new G_TYPE_BOXED derived type id for a new boxed type with name name.

Boxed type handling functions have to be provided to copy and free opaque boxed structures of this type.

For the general case, it is recommended to use G_DEFINE_BOXED_TYPE() instead of calling g_boxed_type_register_static() directly. The macro will create the appropriate *_get_type() function for the boxed type.

This function is not directly available to language bindings
