Request an asynchronous skip of
count bytes from the stream.
When the operation is finished
callback will be called. You can then call skip_async.end to
get the result of the operation.
During an async request no other sync and async calls are allowed, and will result in g_io_error_pending errors.
A value of
count larger than g_maxssize will cause a
On success, the number of bytes skipped will be passed to the callback. It is not an error if this is not the same as the requested size, as it
can happen e.g. near the end of a file, but generally we try to skip as many bytes as requested. Zero is returned on end of file (or if
count is zero), but never otherwise.
Any outstanding i/o request with higher priority (lower numerical value) will be executed before an outstanding request with lower priority. Default priority is g_priority_default.
The asynchronous methods have a default fallback that uses threads to implement asynchronicity, so they are optional for inheriting classes. However, if you override one, you must override all.
