class Gio::UnixFDMessage


This #GSocketControlMessage contains a #GUnixFDList. It may be sent using g_socket_send_message() and received using g_socket_receive_message() over UNIX sockets (ie: sockets in the %G_SOCKET_FAMILY_UNIX family). The file descriptors are copied between processes by the kernel.

For an easier way to send and receive file descriptors over stream-oriented UNIX sockets, see g_unix_connection_send_fd() and g_unix_connection_receive_fd().

Note that <gio/gunixfdmessage.h> belongs to the UNIX-specific GIO interfaces, thus you have to use the gio-unix-2.0.pc pkg-config file when using it.

def self.g_type : UInt64 #

Returns the type id (GType) registered in GLib type system.

Instance Method Detail

def ==(other : self) #
Description copied from class Reference

Returns true if this reference is the same as other. Invokes same?.

def append_fd(fd : Int32) : Bool #

Adds a file descriptor to message.

The file descriptor is duplicated using dup(). You keep your copy of the descriptor and the copy contained in message will be closed when message is finalized.

A possible cause of failure is exceeding the per-process or system-wide file descriptor limit.

[View source]
def fd_list : Gio::UnixFDList #

Gets the #GUnixFDList contained in message. This function does not return a reference to the caller, but the returned list is valid for the lifetime of message.

[View source]
def fd_list=(value : Gio::UnixFDList | Nil) : Gio::UnixFDList | Nil #

[View source]
def hash(hasher) #
Description copied from class Reference

See Object#hash(hasher)

def steal_fds : Enumerable(Int32) #

Returns the array of file descriptors that is contained in this object.

After this call, the descriptors are no longer contained in message. Further calls will return an empty list (unless more descriptors have been added).

The return result of this function must be freed with g_free(). The caller is also responsible for closing all of the file descriptors.

If length is non-nil then it is set to the number of file descriptors in the returned array. The returned array is also terminated with -1.

This function never returns nil. In case there are no file descriptors contained in message, an empty array is returned.
