Details

GLib.ANALYZER_ANALYZING = 1
GLib.ASCII_DTOSTR_BUF_SIZE = 39

A good size for a buffer to be passed into GLib.ascii_dtostr(). It is guaranteed to be enough for all output of that function on systems with 64bit IEEE-compatible doubles.

The typical usage would be something like:

char buf[G_ASCII_DTOSTR_BUF_SIZE];

fprintf (out, "value=%s\n", g_ascii_dtostr (buf, sizeof (buf), value));
GLib.BIG_ENDIAN = 4321

Specifies one of the possible types of byte order. See #G_BYTE_ORDER.

This is the platform dependent conversion specifier for scanning and printing values of type #gint16. It is a string literal, but doesn’t include the percent-sign, such that you can add precision and length modifiers between percent-sign and conversion specifier.

gint16 in;
gint32 out;
sscanf ("42", "%" G_GINT16_FORMAT, &in)
out = in * 1000;
g_print ("%" G_GINT32_FORMAT, out);
GLib.GINT16_MODIFIER = 'h'

The platform dependent length modifier for conversion specifiers for scanning and printing values of type #gint16 or #guint16. It is a string literal, but doesn’t include the percent-sign, such that you can add precision and length modifiers between percent-sign and conversion specifier and append a conversion specifier.

The following example prints “0x7b”;

gint16 value = 123;
g_print ("%#" G_GINT16_MODIFIER "x", value);

Note that scanf() may not support 64-bit integers, even if GLib.GINT64_FORMAT is defined. Due to its weak error handling, scanf() is not recommended for parsing anyway; consider using GLib.ascii_strtoull() instead.

GLib.LN2 = 0.693147

The natural logarithm of 2.

GLib.LOG_2_BASE_10 = 0.30103

Multiplying the base 2 exponent by this number yields the base 10 exponent.

GLib.LOG_DOMAIN = 0

Defines the log domain. See Log Domains.

Libraries should define this so that any messages which they log can be differentiated from messages from other libraries and application code. But be careful not to define it in any public header files.

Log domains must be unique, and it is recommended that they are the application or library name, optionally followed by a hyphen and a sub-domain name. For example, bloatpad or bloatpad-io.

If undefined, it defaults to the default None (or "") log domain; this is not advisable, as it cannot be filtered against using the G_MESSAGES_DEBUG environment variable.

For example, GTK+ uses this in its Makefile.am :

AM_CPPFLAGS = -DG_LOG_DOMAIN=\"Gtk\"

Applications can choose to leave it as the default None (or "") domain. However, defining the domain offers the same advantages as above.

GLib.LOG_FATAL_MASK = 5

This is not used if structured logging is enabled; see Using Structured Logging.

GLib.LOG_LEVEL_USER_SHIFT = 8

GLib.OPTION_FLAG_REVERSE = <flags REVERSE of type OptionFlags>

GLib.PRIORITY_DEFAULT = 0

Use this for default priority event sources.

In GLib this priority is used when adding timeout functions with GLib.timeout_add(). In GDK this priority is used for events from the X server.

GLib.PRIORITY_DEFAULT_IDLE = 200

Use this for default priority idle functions.

In GLib this priority is used when adding idle functions with GLib.idle_add().

GLib.PRIORITY_HIGH = -100

Use this for high priority event sources.

It is not used within GLib or GTK+.

GLib.PRIORITY_HIGH_IDLE = 100

Use this for high priority idle functions.

GTK+ uses GLib.PRIORITY_HIGH_IDLE + 10 for resizing operations, and GLib.PRIORITY_HIGH_IDLE + 20 for redrawing operations. (This is done to ensure that any pending resizes are processed before any pending redraws, so that widgets are not redrawn twice unnecessarily.)

Use this for very low priority background tasks.

It is not used within GLib or GTK+.

GLib.SEARCHPATH_SEPARATOR = 58

GLib.SYSDEF_MSG_OOB = 1

GLib.TEST_OPTION_ISOLATE_DIRS = 'isolate_dirs'

Creates a unique temporary directory for each unit test and uses g_set_user_dirs() to set XDG directories to point into subdirectories of it for the duration of the unit test. The directory tree is cleaned up after the test finishes successfully. Note that this doesn’t take effect until GLib.test_run() is called, so calls to (for example) g_get_user_home_dir() will return the system-wide value when made in a test program’s main() function.

The following functions will return subdirectories of the temporary directory when this option is used. The specific subdirectory paths in use are not guaranteed to be stable API — always use a getter function to retrieve them.

The subdirectories may not be created by the test harness; as with normal calls to functions like GLib.get_user_cache_dir(), the caller must be prepared to create the directory if it doesn’t exist.

New in version 2.60.

GLib.TIME_SPAN_DAY = 86400000000

GLib.VA_COPY_AS_ARRAY = 1
GLib.VERSION_MIN_REQUIRED = 2

A macro that should be defined by the user prior to including the glib.h header. The definition should be one of the predefined GLib version macros: %GLIB_VERSION_2_26, %GLIB_VERSION_2_28,…

This macro defines the earliest version of GLib that the package is required to be able to compile against.

If the compiler is configured to warn about the use of deprecated functions, then using functions that were deprecated in version GLib.VERSION_MIN_REQUIRED or earlier will cause warnings (but using functions deprecated in later releases will not).

New in version 2.32.
