Description

Details

GnomeVFSDirectoryHandle

typedef struct GnomeVFSDirectoryHandle GnomeVFSDirectoryHandle;


enum GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitOptions

typedef enum {
	GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_DEFAULT = 0,
	GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_SAMEFS = 1 << 0,
	GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_LOOPCHECK = 1 << 1,
	GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_IGNORE_RECURSE_ERROR = 1 << 2
} GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitOptions;

These options control the way in which directories are visited. They are passed to gnome_vfs_directory_visit(), gnome_vfs_directory_visit_uri() gnome_vfs_directory_visit_files() and gnome_vfs_directory_visit_files_at_uri().

GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_DEFAULT

Default options, i.e. call the specified GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitFunc for each file.

GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_SAMEFS

Visit only directories on the same file system as the parent

GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_LOOPCHECK

Loop prevention. If this is set, and a file is found to be a directory referencing a prefiously found directory inode (i.e. already used for one of it's parents), this is considered a recursion loop, and GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitFunc will be notified using its recursing_will_loop parameter. If this is not set, the GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitFunc's recursing_will_loop parameter will always be set to FALSE.

GNOME_VFS_DIRECTORY_VISIT_IGNORE_RECURSE_ERROR


GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitFunc ()

gboolean            (*GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitFunc)       (const gchar *rel_path,
                                                         GnomeVFSFileInfo *info,
                                                         gboolean recursing_will_loop,
                                                         gpointer user_data,
                                                         gboolean *recurse);

This function is passed to gnome_vfs_directory_visit(), gnome_vfs_directory_visit_uri(), gnome_vfs_directory_visit_files() and gnome_vfs_directory_visit_files_at_uri(), and is called for each file in the specified directory.

Note

When a recursive visit was requested for a particular directory, errors during the child visit will lead to a cancellation of the overall visit. Thus, you must ensure that the user has sufficient access rights to visit a directory before requesting a recursion.

rel_path :

A char * specifying the path of the currently visited file relative to the base directory for the visit.

info :

The GnomeVFSFileInfo of the currently visited file.

recursing_will_loop :

Whether setting *recurse to TRUE will cause a loop, i.e. whether this is a link pointing to a parent directory.

user_data :

The user data passed to gnome_vfs_directory_visit(), gnome_vfs_directory_visit_uri(), gnome_vfs_directory_visit_files() or gnome_vfs_directory_visit_files_at_uri().

recurse :

A valid pointer to a gboolean, which points to FALSE by default and can be modified to point to TRUE, which indicates that the currently considered file should be visited recursively. The recursive visit will only be actually done if info refers to a directory, *recurse is TRUE and the return value of the GnomeVFSDirectoryVisitFunc is TRUE. *recurse should usually not be set to TRUE if recursing_will_loop is TRUE.

Returns :

TRUE if visit should be continued, FALSE otherwise.

gnome_vfs_directory_open ()

GnomeVFSResult      gnome_vfs_directory_open            (GnomeVFSDirectoryHandle **handle,
