= class GLib::FileIOStream

GLib::FileIOStream provides input streams that take their content from a

GLib::FileIOStream implements GLib::Seekable, which allows the input stream
to jump to arbitrary positions in the file, provided the filesystem of the file
allows it.  To find the position of a file input stream, use
GLib::Seekable#tell.  To find out if a file input stream supports seeking, use
GLib::Seekable#can_seek?. To position a file input stream, use

== Instance Methods

--- can_seek?

    See GLib::Seekable#can_seek?.

--- can_truncate?

    See GLib::Seekable#can_truncate?.

--- etag

     Gets the entity tag for the file when it has been written. This must be
     called after the stream has been written and closed, as the etag can
     change while writing.

     * Returns: The entity tag for the stream

--- query_info(attributes, cancellable = nil)

     Queries a file input stream for the given ((|attributes|)). This function
     blocks while querying the stream. For the asynchronous (non-blocking)
     version of this function, see GLib::FileInputStream#query_info_async.
     While the stream is blocked, the stream will set the pending flag
     internally, and any other operations on the stream will raise

     * attributes: A file attribute query String
     * cancellable: Optional GLib::Cancellable object, nil to ignore
     * Returns: A GLib::FileInfo

--- query_info_async(attributes, io_priority = GLib::PRIORITY_DEFAULT, cancellable = nil){ |result| … }

     Queries the stream information asynchronously.  When the operation is
     finished, a GLib::AsyncResult is yielded. You can then call
     GLib::FileInputStream#query_info_finish to get the result of the

     For the synchronous version of this function, see

     If ((|cancellable|)) is not nil, then the operation can be cancelled by
     triggering the cancellable object from another thread. If the operation
     was cancelled, GLib::IO::CancelledError will be raised.

     * attributes: A file attribute query String
     * io_priority: The I/O priority of the request
     * cancellable: Optional GLib::Cancellable object, nil to ignore
     * result: A GLib::AsyncResult
     * Returns: self

--- query_info_finish(result)

     Finishes an asynchronous info query operation.

     A GLib::IO::Error is raised if the GLib::FileInfo couldn’t be retrieved.

     * result: A GLib::AsyncResult
     * Returns: GLib::FileInfo
