NAME

       sd_bus_message_dump - Produce a string representation of a message for debugging purposes

SYNOPSIS

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       int sd_bus_message_dump(sd_bus_message *m, FILE *f, uint64_t flags);

       SD_BUS_MESSAGE_DUMP_WITH_HEADER, SD_BUS_MESSAGE_DUMP_SUBTREE_ONLY

DESCRIPTION

       The sd_bus_message_dump() function writes a textual representation of the message m to the
       stream f. This function is intended to be used for debugging purposes, and the output is
       neither stable nor designed to be machine readable.

       The flags parameter may be used to modify the output. With
       SD_BUS_MESSAGE_DUMP_WITH_HEADER, a header that specifies the message type and flags and
       some additional metadata is printed. When SD_BUS_MESSAGE_DUMP_SUBTREE_ONLY is not passed,
       the contents of the whole message are printed. When it is passed, only the current
       container in printed.

       Note that this function moves the read pointer of the message. It may be necessary to
       reset the position afterwards, for example with sd_bus_message_rewind(3).

EXAMPLES

       Output for a signal message (with SD_BUS_MESSAGE_DUMP_WITH_HEADER):

           > Type=signal  Endian=l  Flags=1  Version=1  Priority=0 Cookie=22
             Path=/value/a  Interface=org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties  Member=PropertiesChanged
             MESSAGE "sa{sv}as" {
                     STRING "org.freedesktop.systemd.ValueTest";
                     ARRAY "{sv}" {
                             DICT_ENTRY "sv" {
                                     STRING "Value";
                                     VARIANT "s" {
                                             STRING "object 0x1e, path /value/a";
                                     };
                             };
                     };
                     ARRAY "s" {
                             STRING "Value2";
                             STRING "AnExplicitProperty";
                     };
             };

RETURN VALUE

       On success, this function returns 0 or a positive integer. On failure, it returns a
       negative errno-style error code. No error codes are currently defined.

NOTES

       These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled and linked to with
       the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
