Module: GLib::FormatSizeFlags

Defined in:

Constant Summary collapse


behave the same as g_format_size()

0 or :default

include the exact number of bytes as part

of the returned string.  For example, "45.6 kB (45,612 bytes)".
1 or :long_format

use IEC (base 1024) units with “KiB”-style

suffixes. IEC units should only be used for reporting things with
a strong "power of 2" basis, like RAM sizes or RAID stripe sizes.
Network and storage sizes should be reported in the normal SI units.
2 or :iec_units

set the size as a quantity in bits, rather than

bytes, and return units in bits. For example, ‘Mb’ rather than ‘MB’.
4 or :bits
