NAME         top

       sd_bus_message_get_signature, sd_bus_message_is_empty,
       sd_bus_message_has_signature - Query bus message signature

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       const char* sd_bus_message_get_signature(sd_bus_message *message,
                                                int complete);

       int sd_bus_message_is_empty(sd_bus_message *message);

       int sd_bus_message_has_signature(sd_bus_message *message,
                                        const char *signature);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_bus_message_get_signature() returns the signature of message
       message. If complete is true, the signature of the whole message
       is returned, and just the signature of the currently open
       container otherwise.

       sd_bus_message_is_empty() returns true if the message is empty,
       i.e. when its signature is empty.

       sd_bus_message_has_signature() returns true if the signature of
       the message message matches given signature. Parameter signature
       may be NULL, this is treated the same as an empty string, which
       is equivalent to calling sd_bus_message_is_empty().

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, sd_bus_message_get_signature() returns the signature,
       and NULL on error.

       The other functions return 0 or a positive integer on success. On
       failure, they return a negative errno-style error code.

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

           The message parameter is NULL.

           The message parameter is NULL.

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

HISTORY         top

       sd_bus_message_get_signature(), sd_bus_message_is_empty(), and
       sd_bus_message_has_signature() were added in version 240.
