UnixFDMessage

This GSocketControlMessage contains a GUnixFDList It may be sent using g_socket_send_message() and received using g_socket_receive_message() over UNIX sockets (ie: sockets in the G_SOCKET_ADDRESS_UNIX family). The file descriptors are copied between processes by the kernel.

For an easier way to send and receive file descriptors over stream-oriented UNIX sockets, see g_unix_connection_send_fd() and g_unix_connection_receive_fd().

Note that <gio/gunixfdmessage.h> belongs to the UNIX-specific GIO interfaces, thus you have to use the gio-unix-2.0.pc pkg-config file when using it.

Constructors

this
this(GUnixFDMessage* gUnixFDMessage, bool ownedRef = false)

Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.

this
this()

Creates a new GUnixFDMessage containing an empty file descriptor list.

this
this(UnixFDList fdList)

Creates a new GUnixFDMessage containing list.

Members

Functions

appendFd
bool appendFd(int fd)

Adds a file descriptor to message.

getFdList
UnixFDList getFdList()

Gets the GUnixFDList contained in message. This function does not return a reference to the caller, but the returned list is valid for the lifetime of message.

getStruct
void* getStruct()

the main Gtk struct as a void*

getUnixFDMessageStruct
GUnixFDMessage* getUnixFDMessageStruct(bool transferOwnership = false)

Get the main Gtk struct

stealFds
int[] stealFds()

Returns the array of file descriptors that is contained in this object.

Static functions

getType
GType getType()

Variables

gUnixFDMessage
GUnixFDMessage* gUnixFDMessage;
