public unowned MarkupParseContext markup_parser_new (unichar accel_marker)

Parses marked-up text (see markup format) to create a plain-text string and an attribute list.

If accel_marker is nonzero, the given character will mark the character following it as an accelerator. For example, accel_marker might be an ampersand or underscore. All characters marked as an accelerator will receive a LOW attribute, and the first character so marked will be returned in accel_char, when calling finish. Two accel_marker characters following each other produce a single literal accel_marker character.

To feed markup to the parser, use parse on the returned MarkupParseContext. When done with feeding markup to the parser, use markup_parser_finish to get the data out of it, and then use g_markup_parse_context_free to free it.

This function is designed for applications that read pango markup from streams. To simply parse a string containing pango markup, the simpler parse_markup API is recommended instead.



character that precedes an accelerator, or 0 for none


a MarkupParseContext that should be destroyed with g_markup_parse_context_free.
