2.8 Further Topics

As with GLib, the topic of GObject and its API is rather broad. Here are some more topics that aren't covered in this chapter:

  • GBoxed : A data type and API that allows you to wrap C structures into opaque data types. The most prominent boxed typed is GValue .

  • GValueArray packs several GValue elements into an array. Its API is similar to that of GList .

  • GClosure : GSignal calls unnamed functions with the help of closures ; GClosure functions start with g_closure_ .

  • g_enum_* , g_flags_* are several functions and types that involve finite sets such as enumeration types and bitwise options.
