Detailed Description

Helper class to avoid unnecessary string copying in function calls.

A Glib::StdStringView holds a const char pointer. It can be used as an argument type in a function that passes a const char pointer to a C function.

Unlike std::string_view, Glib::StdStringView shall be used only for null-terminated strings.

// can be used instead of
std::string f2(const std::string& s1, const std::string& s2);

Definition: ustring.h:82

The strings are not copied when f1() is called with string literals.

auto r1 = f1("string 1", "string 2");

To pass a Glib::ustring to a function taking a Glib::StdStringView, you may have to use Glib::ustring::c_str().

std::string str = "non-UTF8 string";
Glib::ustring ustr = "UTF8 string";
auto r1 = f1(str, ustr.c_str());
Glib::ustring has much the same interface as std::string, but contains Unicode characters encoded as ...
