function get_flags(): GLib.IOFlags {
    // Gjs wrapper for g_io_channel_get_flags()

Gets the current flags for a GLib.IOChannel, including read-only flags such as GLib.IOFlags.is_readable.

The values of the flags GLib.IOFlags.is_readable and GLib.IOFlags.is_writable are cached for internal use by the channel when it is created. If they should change at some later point (e.g. partial shutdown of a socket with the UNIX shutdown() function), the user should immediately call GLib.IOChannel.prototype.get_flags to update the internal values of these flags.
