Functions

os_infov2_64

An old name for spawn_check_wait_status(), deprecated because its name is misleading.

Set error if wait_status indicates the child exited abnormally (e.g. with a nonzero exit code, or via a fatal signal).

A simple version of spawn_async() that parses a command line with shell_parse_argv() and passes it to spawn_async().

Looks up the Unicode script for iso15924. ISO 15924 assigns four-letter codes to scripts. For example, the code for Arabic is ‘Arab’. This function accepts four letter codes encoded as a guint32 in a big-endian fashion. That is, the code expected for Arabic is 0x41726162 (0x41 is ASCII code for ‘A’, 0x72 is ASCII code for ‘r’, etc).

Looks up the ISO 15924 code for script. ISO 15924 assigns four-letter codes to scripts. For example, the code for Arabic is ‘Arab’. The four letter codes are encoded as a guint32 by this function in a big-endian fashion. That is, the code returned for Arabic is 0x41726162 (0x41 is ASCII code for ‘A’, 0x72 is ASCII code for ‘r’, etc).

A wrapper for the POSIX unlink() function. The unlink() function deletes a name from the filesystem. If this was the last link to the file and no processes have it opened, the diskspace occupied by the file is freed.

Removes an environment variable from the environment.

Pauses the current thread for the given number of microseconds.

Parses the string str and verify if it is a UUID.

Generates a random UUID (RFC 4122 version 4) as a string. It has the same randomness guarantees as GRand, so must not be used for cryptographic purposes such as key generation, nonces, salts or one-time pads.
