Given an accelerator group, accel_group, and an accelerator path, accel_path, sets up an accelerator in accel_group so whenever the key binding that is defined for accel_path is pressed, widget will be activated. This removes any accelerators (for any accelerator group) installed by previous calls to Widget.setAccelPath. Associating accelerators with paths allows them to be modified by the user and the modifications to be saved for future use. (See AccelMap.save.)

This function is a low level function that would most likely be used by a menu creation system like gtk.UIManager If you use gtk.UIManager, setting up accelerator paths will be done automatically.

Even when you you aren’t using gtk.UIManager, if you only want to set up accelerators on menu items Menu.itemSetAccelPath provides a somewhat more convenient interface.

Note that accel_path string will be stored in a GQuark Therefore, if you pass a static string, you can save some memory by interning it first with g_intern_static_string().
