Description

The GHookList, GHook and their related functions provide support for lists of hook functions. Functions can be added and removed from the lists, and the list of hook functions can be invoked.

Details

GHookList

typedef struct {
  gulong	    seq_id;
  guint		    hook_size : 16;
  guint		    is_setup : 1;
  GHook		   *hooks;
  GMemChunk	   *hook_memchunk;
  GHookFinalizeFunc finalize_hook;
  gpointer	    dummy[2];
} GHookList;

The GHookList struct represents a list of hook functions.

gulong seq_id; the next free GHook id.
guint hook_size : 16; the size of the GHookList elements, in bytes.
guint is_setup : 1; 1 if the GHookList has been initialized.
GHook *hooks; the first GHook element in the list.
GMemChunk *hook_memchunk; the GMemChunk used for allocating the GHook elements.
GHookFinalizeFunc finalize_hook; the function to call to finalize a GHook element. The default behaviour is to call the hooks destroy function.
gpointer dummy[2];

GHookFinalizeFunc ()

Defines the type of function to be called when a hook in a list of hooks gets finalized.

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook : the hook in hook_list that gets finalized.

GHook

typedef struct {

} GHook;

The GHook struct represents a single hook function in a GHookList.

gpointer data; data which is passed to func when this hook is invoked.
GHook *next; pointer to the next hook in the list.
GHook *prev; pointer to the previous hook in the list.
guint ref_count; the reference count of this hook.
gulong hook_id; the id of this hook, which is unique within its list.
guint flags; flags which are set for this hook. See GHookFlagMask for predefined flags.
gpointer func; the function to call when this hook is invoked. The possible signatures for this function are GHookFunc and GHookCheckFunc.
GDestroyNotify destroy; the default finalize_hook function of a GHookList calls this member of the hook that is being finalized.

                                             gpointer data);

Finds a GHook in a GHookList with the given function and data.

hook_list : a GHookList.
need_valids : TRUE if GHook elements which have been destroyed should be skipped.
func : the function to find.
data : the data to find.
Returns : the GHook with the given func and data or NULL if no matching GHook is found.

g_hook_first_valid ()

                                             gboolean may_be_in_call);

Returns the first GHook in a GHookList which has not been destroyed. The reference count for the GHook is incremented, so you must call g_hook_unref() to restore it when no longer needed. (Or call g_hook_next_valid() if you are stepping through the GHookList.)

hook_list : a GHookList.
may_be_in_call : TRUE if hooks which are currently running (e.g. in another thread) are considered valid. If set to FALSE, these are skipped.
Returns : the first valid GHook, or NULL if none are valid.

g_hook_next_valid ()

                                             gboolean may_be_in_call);

Returns the next GHook in a GHookList which has not been destroyed. The reference count for the GHook is incremented, so you must call g_hook_unref() to restore it when no longer needed. (Or continue to call g_hook_next_valid() until NULL is returned.)

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook : the current GHook.
may_be_in_call : TRUE if hooks which are currently running (e.g. in another thread) are considered valid. If set to FALSE, these are skipped.
Returns : the next valid GHook, or NULL if none are valid.

enum GHookFlagMask

typedef enum

  G_HOOK_FLAG_MASK	    = 0x0f
} GHookFlagMask;

Flags used internally in the GHook implementation.

G_HOOK_FLAG_ACTIVE set if the hook has not been destroyed.
G_HOOK_FLAG_IN_CALL set if the hook is currently being run.
G_HOOK_FLAG_MASK

G_HOOK_FLAGS()

#define	G_HOOK_FLAGS(hook)		(G_HOOK (hook)->flags)

Returns the flags of a hook.

hook : a GHook.

G_HOOK_FLAG_USER_SHIFT

#define G_HOOK_FLAG_USER_SHIFT	(4)

The position of the first bit which is not reserved for internal use be the GHook implementation, i.e. 1 << G_HOOK_FLAG_USER_SHIFT is the first bit which can be used for application-defined flags.


G_HOOK()

#define	G_HOOK(hook)			((GHook*) (hook))

Casts a pointer to a GHook*.

hook : a pointer.

G_HOOK_IS_VALID()

#define     G_HOOK_IS_VALID(hook)

Returns TRUE if the GHook is valid, i.e. it is in a GHookList, it is active and it has not been destroyed.

hook : a GHook.
Returns : TRUE if the GHook is valid.

G_HOOK_ACTIVE()

#define     G_HOOK_ACTIVE(hook)

Returns TRUE if the GHook is active, which is normally TRUE until the GHook is destroyed.

hook : a GHook.
Returns : TRUE if the GHook is active.

G_HOOK_IN_CALL()

#define     G_HOOK_IN_CALL(hook)

Returns TRUE if the GHook function is currently executing.

hook : a GHook.
Returns : TRUE if the GHook function is currently executing.

G_HOOK_IS_UNLINKED()

#define     G_HOOK_IS_UNLINKED(hook)

Returns TRUE if the GHook is not in a GHookList.

hook : a GHook.
Returns : TRUE if the GHook is not in a GHookList.

g_hook_ref ()

GHook*      g_hook_ref                      (GHookList *hook_list,
                                             GHook *hook);

Increments the reference count for a GHook.

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook : the GHook to increment the reference count of.
Returns : the hook that was passed in (since 2.6)

g_hook_unref ()

void        g_hook_unref                    (GHookList *hook_list,
                                             GHook *hook);

Decrements the reference count of a GHook. If the reference count falls to 0, the GHook is removed from the GHookList and g_hook_free() is called to free it.

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook : the GHook to unref.

g_hook_free ()

void        g_hook_free                     (GHookList *hook_list,
                                             GHook *hook);

Calls the GHookList hook_free function if it exists, and frees the memory allocated for the GHook.

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook : the GHook to free.

g_hook_destroy ()

gboolean    g_hook_destroy                  (GHookList *hook_list,

Destroys a GHook, given its ID.

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook_id : a hook ID.
Returns : TRUE if the GHook was found in the GHookList and destroyed.

g_hook_destroy_link ()

void        g_hook_destroy_link             (GHookList *hook_list,
                                             GHook *hook);

Removes one GHook from a GHookList, marking it inactive and calling g_hook_unref() on it.

hook_list : a GHookList.
hook : the GHook to remove.
