NAME         top

       sd_bus_slot_set_description, sd_bus_slot_get_description - Set or
       query the description of bus slot objects

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       int sd_bus_slot_set_description(sd_bus_slot* slot,
                                       const char *description);

       int sd_bus_slot_get_description(sd_bus_slot* bus,
                                       const char **description);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sd_bus_slot_set_description() sets the description string that is
       used in logging to the specified string. The string is copied
       internally and freed when the bus slot object is deallocated. The
       description argument may be NULL, in which case the description
       is unset.

       sd_bus_slot_get_description() returns a description string in
       description. If the string is not set, e.g. with
       sd_bus_slot_set_description(), and the slot is a bus match
       callback slot, the match string will be returned. Otherwise,
       -ENXIO is returned.

RETURN VALUE         top

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

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

           An required argument is NULL.

           The bus slot object has no description.

           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

HISTORY         top

       sd_bus_slot_set_description() and sd_bus_slot_get_description()
       were added in version 240.
