  guint micro

Description [src]

Checks that the GPlugin library in use is compatible with the given version.

Generally you would pass in the constants GPLUGIN_MAJOR_VERSION, GPLUGIN_MINOR_VERSION, GPLUGIN_MICRO_VERSION as the three arguments to this function; that produces a check that the library in use is compatible with the version of GPlugin the application or module was compiled against.

Compatibility is defined by two things: first the version of the running library is newer than the version major.minor.micro. Second the running library must be binary compatible with the version major.minor.micro (same major version).



Type: guint

The required major version.


Type: guint

The required minor version.


Type: guint

The required micro version.

Return value

Type: const gchar*

NULL if the GPlugin library is compatible with the given version, or a string describing the version mismatch. The returned string is owned by GPlugin and must not be modified or freed.

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