NAME
       glib-genmarshal - C code marshaller generation utility for GLib closures

SYNOPSIS
       glib-genmarshal [OPTION...] [FILE...]

DESCRIPTION
       glib-genmarshal is a small utility that generates C code marshallers for callback
       functions of the GClosure mechanism in the GObject sublibrary of GLib. The marshaller
       functions have a standard signature, they get passed in the invoking closure, an array of
       value structures holding the callback function parameters and a value structure for the
       return value of the callback. The marshaller is then responsible to call the respective C
       code function of the closure with all the parameters on the stack and to collect its
       return value.

       glib-genmarshal takes a list of marshallers to generate as input. The marshaller list is
       either read from standard input or from files passed as additional arguments on the
       command line.

   Marshaller list format
       The marshaller lists are processed line by line, a line can contain a comment in the form
       of

	   # this is a comment

       or a marshaller specification of the form

	   RTYPE:PTYPE
	   RTYPE:PTYPE,PTYPE
	   RTYPE:PTYPE,PTYPE,PTYPE

       (up to 16 PTYPEs may be present).

       The RTYPE part specifies the callback's return type and the PTYPEs right to the colon
       specify the callback's parameter list, except for the first and the last arguments which
       are always pointers.

   Parameter types
       Currently, the following types are supported:

       VOID
	   indicates no return type, or no extra parameters. If VOID is used as the parameter
	   list, no additional parameters may be present.

       BOOLEAN
	   for boolean types (gboolean)

       CHAR
	   for signed char types (gchar)

       UCHAR
	   for unsigned char types (guchar)

       INT
	   for signed integer types (gint)

       UINT
	   for unsigned integer types (guint)

       LONG
	   for signed long integer types (glong)

       ULONG
	   for unsigned long integer types (gulong)

       INT64
	   for signed 64bit integer types (gint64)

       UINT64
	   for unsigned 64bit integer types (guint64)

       ENUM
	   for enumeration types (gint)

       FLAGS
	   for flag enumeration types (guint)

       FLOAT
	   for single-precision float types (gfloat)

       DOUBLE
	   for double-precision float types (gdouble)

       STRING
	   for string types (gchar*)

       BOXED
	   for boxed (anonymous but reference counted) types (GBoxed*)

       PARAM
	   for GParamSpec or derived types (GParamSpec*)

       POINTER
	   for anonymous pointer types (gpointer)

       OBJECT
	   for GObject or derived types (GObject*)

       VARIANT
	   for GVariant types (GVariant*)

       NONE
	   deprecated alias for VOID

       BOOL
	   deprecated alias for BOOLEAN

OPTIONS
       --header
	   Generate header file contents of the marshallers.

       --body
	   Generate C code file contents of the marshallers.

       --prefix=PREFIX
	   Specify marshaller prefix. The default prefix is `g_cclosure_marshal'.

       --skip-source
	   Skip source location remarks in generated comments.

       --stdinc
	   Use the standard marshallers of the GObject library, and include gmarshal.h in
	   generated header files.

       --nostdinc
	   Do not use the standard marshallers of the GObject library, and skip gmarshal.h
	   include directive in generated header files.

       --internal
	   Mark generated functions as internal, using G_GNUC_INTERNAL.

       --valist-marshallers
	   Generate valist marshallers, for use with g_signal_set_va_marshaller().

       -v, --version
	   Print version information.

       --g-fatal-warnings
	   Make warnings fatal, that is, exit immediately once a warning occurs.

       -h, --help
	   Print brief help and exit.

       -v, --version
	   Print version and exit.

EXAMPLE
       To generate marshallers for the following callback functions:

	   void   foo (gpointer data1,
		       gpointer data2);
	   void   bar (gpointer data1,
		       gint	param1,
		       gpointer data2);
	   gfloat baz (gpointer data1,
		       gboolean param1,
		       guchar	param2,
		       gpointer data2);

       The marshaller.list file has to look like this:

	   VOID:VOID
	   VOID:INT
	   FLOAT:BOOLEAN,UCHAR

       and you call glib-genmarshal like this:

	   glib-genmarshal --header marshaller.list > marshaller.h
	   glib-genmarshal --body marshaller.list > marshaller.c

       The generated marshallers have the arguments encoded in their function name. For this
       particular list, they are

	   g_cclosure_user_marshal_VOID__VOID(),
	   g_cclosure_user_marshal_VOID__INT(),
	   g_cclosure_user_marshal_FLOAT__BOOLEAN_UCHAR().

       They can be used directly for GClosures or be passed in as the GSignalCMarshaller
       c_marshaller; argument upon creation of signals:

	   GClosure *cc_foo, *cc_bar, *cc_baz;

	   cc_foo = g_cclosure_new (NULL, foo, NULL);
	   g_closure_set_marshal (cc_foo, g_cclosure_user_marshal_VOID__VOID);
	   cc_bar = g_cclosure_new (NULL, bar, NULL);
	   g_closure_set_marshal (cc_bar, g_cclosure_user_marshal_VOID__INT);
	   cc_baz = g_cclosure_new (NULL, baz, NULL);
	   g_closure_set_marshal (cc_baz, g_cclosure_user_marshal_FLOAT__BOOLEAN_UCHAR);
