Description [src]

Converts a string value to a boolean. Only true and false are accepted values.

Available since: 1.8.2



Type: const gchar*

A string, e.g. true

The data is owned by the caller of the function.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Type: gboolean*

Parsed value.

The argument will be set by the function.
The argument can be set to NULL by the function.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will be left initialized to NULL by the function if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE if the value was parsed correctly, or FALSE for error.
