Re: fdwalk




Hey,

The general answer to this kind of question is ’because nobody has
needed it’. If you can demonstrate a need for a public fdwalk()
implementation, which would be used by multiple apps, for a purpose
which can’t just be served by GSubprocess or g_spawn_*(), then please
file a bug about it on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product
=glib.
