Description

Functionality for manipulating basic metadata for files. GFileInfo implements methods for getting information that all files should contain, and allows for manipulation of extended attributes.

See GFileAttribute for more information on how GIO handles file attributes.

To obtain a GFileInfo for a GFile, use g_file_query_info() (or its async variant). To obtain a GFileInfo for a file input or output stream, use g_file_input_stream_query_info() or g_file_output_stream_query_info() (or their async variants).

To change the actual attributes of a file, you should then set the attribute in the GFileInfo and call g_file_set_attributes_from_info() or g_file_set_attributes_async() on a GFile.

However, not all attributes can be changed in the file. For instance, the actual size of a file cannot be changed via g_file_info_set_size(). You may call g_file_query_settable_attributes() and g_file_query_writable_namespaces() to discover the settable attributes of a particular file at runtime.

GFileAttributeMatcher allows for searching through a GFileInfo for attributes.

g_file_attribute_matcher_new ()

GFileAttributeMatcher *
g_file_attribute_matcher_new (const char *attributes);

Creates a new file attribute matcher, which matches attributes against a given string. GFileAttributeMatchers are reference counted structures, and are created with a reference count of 1. If the number of references falls to 0, the GFileAttributeMatcher is automatically destroyed.

The attribute string should be formatted with specific keys separated from namespaces with a double colon. Several "namespace::key" strings may be concatenated with a single comma (e.g. "standard::type,standard::is-hidden"). The wildcard "*" may be used to match all keys and namespaces, or "namespace::*" will match all keys in a given namespace.

Examples of file attribute matcher strings and results

  • "*": matches all attributes.

  • "standard::is-hidden": matches only the key is-hidden in the standard namespace.

  • "standard::type,unix::*": matches the type key in the standard namespace and all keys in the unix namespace.

Parameters

attributes

an attribute string to match.

 

g_file_attribute_matcher_ref ()

Parameters

g_file_attribute_matcher_subtract (GFileAttributeMatcher *matcher,
                                   GFileAttributeMatcher *subtract);

Subtracts all attributes of subtract from matcher and returns a matcher that supports those attributes.

Note that currently it is not possible to remove a single attribute when the matcher matches the whole namespace - or remove a namespace or attribute when the matcher matches everything. This is a limitation of the current implementation, but may be fixed in the future.

Parameters

matcher

Matcher to subtract from

 

subtract

The matcher to subtract

 

Returns

A file attribute matcher matching all attributes of matcher that are not matched by subtract


g_file_attribute_matcher_unref ()

void
g_file_attribute_matcher_unref (GFileAttributeMatcher *matcher);

gboolean
g_file_attribute_matcher_matches (GFileAttributeMatcher *matcher,
                                  const char *attribute);

Checks if an attribute will be matched by an attribute matcher. If the matcher was created with the "*" matching string, this function will always return TRUE.

Parameters

matcher

a GFileAttributeMatcher.

 

attribute

a file attribute key.

 

Returns

TRUE if attribute matches matcher . FALSE otherwise.


g_file_attribute_matcher_matches_only ()

gboolean
g_file_attribute_matcher_matches_only (GFileAttributeMatcher *matcher,
                                       const char *attribute);

Checks if a attribute matcher only matches a given attribute. Always returns FALSE if "*" was used when creating the matcher.

Parameters

attribute

a file attribute key.

 

Returns

TRUE if the matcher only matches attribute . FALSE otherwise.

g_file_attribute_matcher_enumerate_namespace
                               (GFileAttributeMatcher *matcher,
                                const char *ns);

Checks if the matcher will match all of the keys in a given namespace. This will always return TRUE if a wildcard character is in use (e.g. if matcher was created with "standard::*" and ns is "standard", or if matcher was created using "*" and namespace is anything.)

TODO: this is awkwardly worded.

Parameters

matcher

a GFileAttributeMatcher.

 

ns

a string containing a file attribute namespace.

 

Returns

TRUE if the matcher matches all of the entries in the given ns , FALSE otherwise.

char *
g_file_attribute_matcher_to_string (GFileAttributeMatcher *matcher);

Prints what the matcher is matching against. The format will be equal to the format passed to g_file_attribute_matcher_new(). The output however, might not be identical, as the matcher may decide to use a different order or omit needless parts.

Parameters

matcher

a GFileAttributeMatcher.

[nullable]

Returns

a string describing the attributes the matcher matches against or NULL if matcher was NULL.

A key in the "standard" namespace for getting the name of the file. The name is the on-disk filename which may not be in any known encoding, and can thus not be generally displayed as is. Use G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_DISPLAY_NAME if you need to display the name in a user interface. Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_BYTE_STRING.


G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_DISPLAY_NAME

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_DISPLAY_NAME "standard::display-name"     /* string */

G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_EDIT_NAME

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_EDIT_NAME "standard::edit-name"           /* string */

A key in the "standard" namespace for edit name of the file. An edit name is similar to the display name, but it is meant to be used when you want to rename the file in the UI.

Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_STRING.


G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_COPY_NAME

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_COPY_NAME "standard::copy-name"           /* string */

A key in the "standard" namespace for getting the description of the file. The description is a utf8 string that describes the file, generally containing the filename, but can also contain furter information. Example descriptions could be "filename (on hostname)" for a remote file or "filename (in trash)" for a file in the trash. This is useful for instance as the window title when displaying a directory or for a bookmarks menu.

Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_STRING.


G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_ICON

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_ICON "standard::icon"                     /* object (GIcon) */

G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_FAST_CONTENT_TYPE

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_FAST_CONTENT_TYPE "standard::fast-content-type" /* string */

A key in the "standard" namespace for getting the fast content type. The fast content type isn't as reliable as the regular one, as it only uses the filename to guess it, but it is faster to calculate than the regular content type. Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_STRING.


G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_SIZE

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_SIZE "standard::size"                     /* uint64 */

A key in the "standard" namespace for getting the file's size (in bytes). Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_UINT64.


G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_ALLOCATED_SIZE

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_ALLOCATED_SIZE "standard::allocated-size" /* uint64 */

A key in the "standard" namespace for getting the amount of disk space that is consumed by the file (in bytes). This will generally be larger than the file size (due to block size overhead) but can occasionally be smaller (for example, for sparse files). Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_UINT64.

Since: 2.20


G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_SYMLINK_TARGET

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_SYMLINK_TARGET "standard::symlink-target" /* byte string */

A key in the "standard" namespace for setting the sort order of a file. Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_INT32. An example use would be in file managers, which would use this key to set the order files are displayed. Files with smaller sort order should be sorted first, and files without sort order as if sort order was zero.

#define G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ETAG_VALUE "etag::value"                 /* string */

A key in the "etag" namespace for getting the value of the file's entity tag. Corresponding GFileAttributeType is G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_STRING.
