DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_bus_message_get_type() returns the type of a message in the
       output parameter type, one of SD_BUS_MESSAGE_METHOD_CALL,
       SD_BUS_MESSAGE_METHOD_RETURN, SD_BUS_MESSAGE_METHOD_ERROR,
       SD_BUS_MESSAGE_SIGNAL. This type is either specified as a
       parameter when the message is created using
       sd_bus_message_new(3), or is set automatically when the message
       is created using sd_bus_message_new_signal(3),
       sd_bus_message_new_method_call(3),
       sd_bus_message_new_method_error(3) and similar functions.

       sd_bus_message_get_error() returns the error stored in the
       message m, if there is any. Otherwise, it returns NULL.
       sd_bus_message_get_errno() returns the error stored in the
       message m as a positive errno-style value, if there is any.
       Otherwise, it returns zero. Errors are mapped to errno values
       according to the default and any additional registered error
       mappings. See sd-bus-errors(3) and sd_bus_error_add_map(3).

       sd_bus_message_get_creds() returns the message credentials
       attached to the message m. If no credentials are attached to the
       message, it returns NULL. Ownership of the credentials instance
       is not transferred to the caller and hence should not be freed.

       sd_bus_message_is_signal() checks if message m is a signal
       message. If interface is non-null, it also checks if the message
       has the same interface set. If member is non-null, it also checks
       if the message has the same member set. Also see
       sd_bus_message_new_signal(3). It returns true when all checks
       pass.

       sd_bus_message_is_method_call() checks if message m is a method
       call message. If interface is non-null, it also checks if the
       message has the same interface set. If member is non-null, it
       also checks if the message has the same member set. Also see
       sd_bus_message_new_method_call(3). It returns true when all
       checks pass.

       sd_bus_message_is_method_error() checks if message m is an error
       reply message. If name is non-null, it also checks if the message
       has the same error identifier set. Also see
       sd_bus_message_new_method_error(3). It returns true when all
       checks pass.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, these functions (except sd_bus_message_get_error()
       and sd_bus_message_get_creds()) return a non-negative integer. On
       failure, they return a negative errno-style error code.
       sd_bus_message_get_errno() always returns a non-negative integer,
       even on failure.

   Errors
       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

       -EINVAL
           The message parameter m or an output parameter is NULL.

NOTES         top

       These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be
       compiled and linked to with the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
