 * an asynchronous operation, provide a #GAsyncReadyCallback to the
 * asynchronous function. This callback will be triggered when the
 * operation has completed, and will be passed a #GAsyncResult instance
 * filled with the details of the operation's success or failure, the
 * object the asynchronous function was started for and any error codes
 * returned. The asynchronous callback function is then expected to call
43 44
 * the corresponding "_finish()" function, passing the object the
 * function was called for, the #GAsyncResult instance, and (optionally)
45
 * an @error to grab any error conditions that may have occurred.

 * The "_finish()" function for an operation takes the generic result
 * (of type #GAsyncResult) and returns the specific result that the
 * operation in question yields (e.g. a #GFileEnumerator for a
 * "enumerate children" operation). If the result or error status of the
 * operation is not needed, there is no need to call the "_finish()"
 * function; GIO will take care of cleaning up the result and error
53 54 55 56 57
 * information after the #GAsyncReadyCallback returns. You can pass
 * %NULL for the #GAsyncReadyCallback if you don't need to take any
 * action at all after the operation completes. Applications may also
 * take a reference to the #GAsyncResult and call "_finish()" later;
 * however, the "_finish()" function may be called at most once.

 * Many I/O-related asynchronous operations have a priority parameter,
 * which is used in certain cases to determine the order in which
 * operations are executed. They are not used to determine system-wide
 * I/O scheduling. Priorities are integers, with lower numbers indicating
 * higher priority. It is recommended to choose priorities between
 * %G_PRIORITY_LOW and %G_PRIORITY_HIGH, with %G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT
113
 * as a default.
