value_stringify


Description:

public string value_stringify (Value value)

Converts a GValue to its string representation which is a human readable value.

Note that the returned string does not take into account the current locale of the user (on the contrary to the DataHandler objects). Using this function should be limited to debugging and values serialization purposes.

Output is in the "C" locale for numbers, and dates are converted in a YYYY-MM-DD format.

Parameters:

value

a Value.

Returns:

a new string, or null if the conversion cannot be done. Free the value with a g_free when you've finished using it.
