NAME         top

       sd_bus_message_rewind - Return to beginning of message or current

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       int sd_bus_message_rewind(sd_bus_message *m, int complete);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_bus_message_rewind() moves the "read pointer" in the message m
       to either the beginning of the message (if complete is true) or
       to the beginning of the currently open container. If no container
       is open, complete has no effect.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, this function returns 0 or a positive integer. The
       value is zero if the current container or whole message in case
       no container is open is empty, and positive otherwise. On
       failure, it returns a negative errno-style error code.

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

           The m parameter is NULL.

           The message m has not been sealed.

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_rewind() was added in version 240.
