Object hierarchy for UnixFDMessage


public class UnixFDMessage : SocketControlMessage

This SocketControlMessage contains a UnixFDList.

It may be sent using send_message and received using receive_message over UNIX sockets (ie: sockets in the g_socket_family_unix family). The file descriptors are copied between processes by the kernel.

For an easier way to send and receive file descriptors over stream-oriented UNIX sockets, see send_fd and receive_fd.

Note that `<gio/gunixfdmessage.h>` belongs to the UNIX-specific GIO interfaces, thus you have to use the `gio-unix-2.0.pc` pkg-config file when using it.

Namespace: GLib
Package: gio-unix-2.0
