Makes a full (deep) copy of a GSList

In contrast with g_slist_copy(), this function uses func to make a copy of each list element, in addition to copying the list container itself.

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.

For instance, if list holds a list of GObjects, you can do:

another_list = g_slist_copy_deep (list, (GCopyFunc) g_object_ref, NULL);

And, to entirely free the new list, you could do:

g_slist_free_full (another_list, g_object_unref);
class ListSG


func GCopyFunc

a copy function used to copy every element in the list

userData void*

Return Value

Type: ListSG

a full copy of list, use g_slist_free_full() to free it
