Re: [Vala] Optional output parameters?

The expression of an out parameter must be an LHS (left hand side) assigment.

You can try


You'll have to fill inh_type with thr right type

Subject: [Vala] Optional output parameters?

Hello Folks,

I want to use the Glib.Process.spawn_async_with_pipes
(g_spawn_async_with_pipes) function. It has three output parameters through
which is passes back pipes it connected to the newly created process' stdin,
stdout and stderr respectively. The underlying function will not create the
pipes if the respective pointer is NULL.

Now that would be OK, if whether it will need the handler or not didn't depend
on an argument of the calling function. I want to construct a conditional 
expression (to avoid having four calls to the spawn_async_with_pipes), that 
will pass either pointer to the variable or NULL, but I am out of guesses.

I tried various things like:
condition ? out inh : null
out condition ? inh : null
out (condition ? inh : null)

and always got either "incompatible expressions" or "syntax error" errors.
