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).


major guint

The required major version.

minor guint

The required minor version.

micro guint

The required micro version.

Return value

Returns: 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.
