Description:

[ CCode ( has_type_id = false ) ]
public struct SourceFuncs

The `GSourceFuncs` struct contains a table of functions used to handle event sources in a generic manner.

For idle sources, the prepare and check functions always return true to indicate that the source is always ready to be processed. The prepare function also returns a timeout value of 0 to ensure that the poll call doesn't block (since that would be time wasted which could have been spent running the idle function).

For timeout sources, the prepare and check functions both return true if the timeout interval has expired. The prepare function also returns a timeout value to ensure that the poll call doesn't block too long and miss the next timeout.

For file descriptor sources, the prepare function typically returns false, since it must wait until poll has been called before it knows whether any events need to be processed. It sets the returned timeout to -1 to indicate that it doesn't mind how long the poll call blocks. In the check function, it tests the results of the poll call to see if the required condition has been met, and returns true if so.
