Since the C Programming-Language was not created with Object Oriented Programming in mind, it has no explicit support for classes, inheritance. This document is used for two purposes: one is as a tutorial on learning Glib’s GObject Type System, and the other is a step-by-step how-to for using the system . for GObject The latest version of this documentation can be found on-line at utility for GLib closures; gobject-query — display a tree of types. IV. Tutorial.
