sd_bus_message_read_strv, sd_bus_message_read_strv_extend - Access an array of strings in a message
#include <systemd/sd-bus.h> int sd_bus_message_read_strv(sd_bus_message *m, char ***l); int sd_bus_message_read_strv_extend(sd_bus_message *m, char ***l);
sd_bus_message_read_strv() reads an array of string-like items from the message m. The "read pointer" in the message must be right before an array of strings (D-Bus type "as"), object paths (D-Bus type "ao"), or signatures (D-Bus type "ag"). On success, a pointer to a NULL-terminated array of strings (strv) is returned in the output parameter l. Note that ownership of this array is transferred to the caller. Hence, the caller is responsible for freeing this array and its contents. sd_bus_message_read_strv_extend() is similar, but the second parameter is an input-output parameter. If *l is NULL, if behaves identically to sd_bus_message_read_strv(). Otherwise, *l must point to a strv, which will be reallocated and extended with additional strings. This function is particularly useful when combining multiple lists of strings in a message or messages into a single array of strings.
On success, these functions return a non-negative integer. On failure, they return a negative errno-style error code. Errors Returned errors may indicate the following problems: -EINVAL m or l are NULL. -EPERM The message is not sealed. -EBADMSG The message cannot be parsed. -ENXIO The message "read pointer" is not right before an array of the appropriate type.
