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.

Constructor Detail

def : self #

Creates a new #GUnixFDMessage containing an empty file descriptor list.

def*, fd_list : Gio::UnixFDList? = nil) #

def self.new_with_fd_list(fd_list : Gio::UnixFDList) : self #

Creates a new #GUnixFDMessage containing @list.

Class Method Detail

def self.g_type : UInt64 #

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

Instance Method Detail

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.

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.

def fd_list=(value : Gio::UnixFDList?) : Gio::UnixFDList? #

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.
