NAME         top

       sd_bus_message_copy - Copy the contents of one message to another

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       int sd_bus_message_copy(sd_bus_message *m,
                               sd_bus_message *source, int all);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_bus_message_copy() copies the contents from message source to
       m. If all is false, a single complete type is copied (basic or
       container). If all is true, the contents are copied until the end
       of the currently open container or the end of source.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, this call returns true if anything was copied, and
       false if there was nothing to copy. On failure, it returns a
       negative errno-style error code.

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

           source or m are NULL.

           Message m has been sealed or source has not been sealed.

           Destination message is in invalid state.

           Destination message cannot be appended to.

           Memory allocation failed.

NOTES         top

       Functions described here are available as a shared library, which
       can be compiled against and linked to with the
       libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.

       The code described here uses getenv(3), which is declared to be
       not multi-thread-safe. This means that the code calling the
       functions described here must not call setenv(3) from a parallel
       thread. It is recommended to only do calls to setenv() from an
       early phase of the program when no other threads have been
