GFileInputStream

GFileInputStream — File input streaming operations

Types and Values

Object Hierarchy

    GObject
    ╰── GInputStream
        ╰── GFileInputStream

Implemented Interfaces

GFileInputStream implements GSeekable.

Includes

#include <gio/gio.h>

Description

GFileInputStream provides input streams that take their content from a file.

GFileInputStream implements GSeekable, which allows the input stream to jump to arbitrary positions in the file, provided the filesystem of the file allows it. To find the position of a file input stream, use g_seekable_tell(). To find out if a file input stream supports seeking, use g_seekable_can_seek(). To position a file input stream, use g_seekable_seek().

Functions

g_file_input_stream_query_info ()

GFileInfo *
g_file_input_stream_query_info (GFileInputStream *stream,
                                const char *attributes,
                                GCancellable *cancellable,
                                GError **error);

Queries a file input stream the given attributes . This function blocks while querying the stream. For the asynchronous (non-blocking) version of this function, see g_file_input_stream_query_info_async(). While the stream is blocked, the stream will set the pending flag internally, and any other operations on the stream will fail with G_IO_ERROR_PENDING.

Parameters

stream

a GFileInputStream.

 

attributes

a file attribute query string.

 

cancellable

optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

[nullable]

error

a GError location to store the error occurring, or NULL to ignore.

 

Returns

a GFileInfo, or NULL on error.

g_file_input_stream_query_info_async ()

void
g_file_input_stream_query_info_async (GFileInputStream *stream,
                                      const char *attributes,
                                      int io_priority,
                                      GCancellable *cancellable,
                                      GAsyncReadyCallback callback,
                                      gpointer user_data);

Queries the stream information asynchronously. When the operation is finished callback will be called. You can then call g_file_input_stream_query_info_finish() to get the result of the operation.

For the synchronous version of this function, see g_file_input_stream_query_info().

If cancellable is not NULL, then the operation can be cancelled by triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation was cancelled, the error G_IO_ERROR_CANCELLED will be set

Parameters

stream

a GFileInputStream.

 

attributes

a file attribute query string.

 

io_priority

the I/O priority of the request

 

cancellable

optional GCancellable object, NULL to ignore.

[nullable]

callback

callback to call when the request is satisfied.

[scope async]

user_data

the data to pass to callback function.

[closure]

g_file_input_stream_query_info_finish ()

GFileInfo *
g_file_input_stream_query_info_finish (GFileInputStream *stream,
                                       GAsyncResult *result,
                                       GError **error);

Finishes an asynchronous info query operation.

Parameters

stream

a GFileInputStream.

 

result

a GAsyncResult.

 

error

a GError location to store the error occurring, or NULL to ignore.

 

Returns

GFileInfo.

Types and Values

GFileInputStream

typedef struct _GFileInputStream GFileInputStream;

A subclass of GInputStream for opened files. This adds a few file-specific operations and seeking.

GFileInputStream implements GSeekable.
