sd_bus_set_close_on_exit, sd_bus_get_close_on_exit — Control whether to close the bus connection during the event loop exit phase
sd_bus_set_close_on_exit() may be used to enable or disable whether
the bus connection is automatically flushed (as in
and closed (as in
during the exit phase of the event loop. This logic only applies to bus connections that are
attached to an
event loop, see
By default this mechanism is enabled and makes sure that any pending messages that have not been
written to the bus connection are written out when the event loop is shutting down. In some
cases this behaviour is not desirable, for example when the bus connection shall remain usable
until after the event loop exited. If
b is true, the feature is enabled
(which is the default), otherwise disabled.
sd_bus_get_close_on_exit() may be used to query the current setting
of this feature. It returns zero when the feature is disabled, and positive if enabled.
sd_bus_set_close_on_exit() returns a non-negative
integer. On failure, it returns a negative errno-style error code.
sd_bus_get_close_on_exit() returns 0 if the feature is currently
disabled or a positive integer if it is enabled. On failure, it returns a negative errno-style
