Bounds-checking integer arithmetic

Bounds-checking integer arithmetic — a set of helpers for performing checked integer arithmetic

Functions

#define g_uint_checked_mul()
#define g_uint64_checked_mul()
#define g_size_checked_mul()

Includes

#include <glib.h>

Description

GLib offers a set of macros for doing additions and multiplications of unsigned integers, with checks for overflows.

The helpers all have three arguments. A pointer to the destination is always the first argument and the operands to the operation are the other two.

Following standard GLib convention, the helpers return TRUE in case of success (ie: no overflow).

The helpers may be macros, normal functions or inlines. They may be implemented with inline assembly or compiler intrinsics where available.

Functions

Performs a checked addition of a and b , storing the result in dest .

If the operation is successful, TRUE is returned. If the operation overflows then the state of dest is undefined and FALSE is returned.

Parameters

dest

a pointer to the guint destination

a

the guint left operand

b

the guint right operand

Returns

TRUE if there was no overflow

Since: 2.48

g_uint_checked_mul()

#define             g_uint_checked_mul(dest, a, b)

Performs a checked multiplication of a and b , storing the result in dest .

If the operation is successful, TRUE is returned. If the operation overflows then the state of dest is undefined and FALSE is returned.

Parameters

dest

a pointer to the guint destination

a

the guint left operand

b

the guint right operand

Returns

TRUE if there was no overflow

Since: 2.48

Performs a checked addition of a and b , storing the result in dest .

If the operation is successful, TRUE is returned. If the operation overflows then the state of dest is undefined and FALSE is returned.

Parameters

dest

a pointer to the guint64 destination

a

the guint64 left operand

b

the guint64 right operand

Returns

TRUE if there was no overflow

Since: 2.48

g_uint64_checked_mul()

#define             g_uint64_checked_mul(dest, a, b)

Performs a checked multiplication of a and b , storing the result in dest .

If the operation is successful, TRUE is returned. If the operation overflows then the state of dest is undefined and FALSE is returned.

Parameters

dest

a pointer to the guint64 destination

a

the guint64 left operand

b

the guint64 right operand

Returns

TRUE if there was no overflow

Since: 2.48

Performs a checked addition of a and b , storing the result in dest .

If the operation is successful, TRUE is returned. If the operation overflows then the state of dest is undefined and FALSE is returned.

Parameters

dest

a pointer to the gsize destination

a

the gsize left operand

b

the gsize right operand

Returns

TRUE if there was no overflow

Since: 2.48

g_size_checked_mul()

#define             g_size_checked_mul(dest, a, b)

Performs a checked multiplication of a and b , storing the result in dest .

If the operation is successful, TRUE is returned. If the operation overflows then the state of dest is undefined and FALSE is returned.

Parameters

dest

a pointer to the gsize destination

a

the gsize left operand

b

the gsize right operand

Returns

TRUE if there was no overflow

Since: 2.48
