to_utf32


Description:

public string32 to_utf32 (long len = -1, out long items_read = null, out long items_written = null) throws ConvertError

Convert a string from UTF-8 to a 32-bit fixed width representation as UCS-4.

A trailing 0 character will be added to the string after the converted text.

Parameters:

len

the maximum length of str to use, in bytes. If len < 0, then the string is nul-terminated.

items_read

location to store number of bytes read, or null. If null, then g_convert_error_partial_input will be returned in case str contains a trailing partial character. If an error occurs then the index of the invalid input is stored here.

items_written

location to store number of characters written or null. The value here stored does not include the trailing 0 character.

str

a UTF-8 encoded string

Returns:

a pointer to a newly allocated UCS-4 string. This value must be freed with g_free . If an error occurs, null will be returned and throws set.
