class Gio::UnixSocketAddress

Overview

Support for UNIX-domain (also known as local) sockets.

UNIX domain sockets are generally visible in the filesystem. However, some systems support abstract socket names which are not visible in the filesystem and not affected by the filesystem permissions, visibility, etc. Currently this is only supported under Linux. If you attempt to use abstract sockets on other systems, function calls may return %G_IO_ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED errors. You can use g_unix_socket_address_abstract_names_supported() to see if abstract names are supported.

Since GLib 2.72, #GUnixSocketAddress is available on all platforms. It requires underlying system support (such as Windows 10 with AF_UNIX) at run time.

Before GLib 2.72, <gio/gunixsocketaddress.h> belonged to the UNIX-specific GIO interfaces, thus you had to use the gio-unix-2.0.pc pkg-config file when using it. This is no longer necessary since GLib 2.72.

Constructor Detail

def self.new(path : String) : self #

Creates a new #GUnixSocketAddress for path.

To create abstract socket addresses, on systems that support that, use g_unix_socket_address_new_abstract().


[View source]
def self.new #

Initialize a new UnixSocketAddress.


[View source]
def self.new(*, abstract _abstract : Bool | Nil = nil, address_type : Gio::UnixSocketAddressType | Nil = nil, family : Gio::SocketFamily | Nil = nil, path : String | Nil = nil, path_as_array : Bytes | Nil = nil) #

[View source]
def self.new_abstract(path : Enumerable(Int8)) : self #

Creates a new %G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_ABSTRACT_PADDED #GUnixSocketAddress for path.

DEPRECATED


[View source]
def self.new_with_type(path : Enumerable(Int8), type : Gio::UnixSocketAddressType) : self #

Creates a new #GUnixSocketAddress of type type with name path.

If type is %G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_PATH, this is equivalent to calling g_unix_socket_address_new().

If type is %G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_ANONYMOUS, path and path_len will be ignored.

If path_type is %G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_ABSTRACT, then path_len bytes of path will be copied to the socket's path, and only those bytes will be considered part of the name. (If path_len is -1, then path is assumed to be NUL-terminated.) For example, if path was "test", then calling g_socket_address_get_native_size() on the returned socket would return 7 (2 bytes of overhead, 1 byte for the abstract-socket indicator byte, and 4 bytes for the name "test").

If path_type is %G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_ABSTRACT_PADDED, then path_len bytes of path will be copied to the socket's path, the rest of the path will be padded with 0 bytes, and the entire zero-padded buffer will be considered the name. (As above, if path_len is -1, then path is assumed to be NUL-terminated.) In this case, g_socket_address_get_native_size() will always return the full size of a struct sockaddr_un, although g_unix_socket_address_get_path_len() will still return just the length of path.

%G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_ABSTRACT is preferred over %G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_ABSTRACT_PADDED for new programs. Of course, when connecting to a server created by another process, you must use the appropriate type corresponding to how that process created its listening socket.

def is_abstract : Bool #

Tests if address is abstract.

DEPRECATED


[View source]
def path : String #

Gets address's path, or for abstract sockets the "name".

Guaranteed to be zero-terminated, but an abstract socket may contain embedded zeros, and thus you should use g_unix_socket_address_get_path_len() to get the true length of this string.

def path_as_array=(value : Bytes) : Bytes #

[View source]
def path_len : UInt64 #

Gets the length of address's path.
