NAME

Parrot::Pmc2c - PMC to C Code Generation

SYNOPSIS

        use Parrot::Pmc2c;

DESCRIPTION

Parrot::Pmc2c (and the subclasses defined in this file) is used by tools/build/pmc2c.pl to generate C code from PMC files.

Functions

does_write($method, $section)

Returns whether a method writes.

count_newlines($string)

Returns the number of newlines (\n) in $string.

dont_edit($pmcfile)

Returns the "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE" warning text. $pmcfile is the name of the original source *.pmc file.

gen_ret($method, $body)

Generate the C code for a return statement, if the body is empty then make a cast if needed.

This method is imported by subclasses.

class_name($self, $class)

Returns the appropriate Parrot::Pmc2c subclass for the PMC ($self->{class}). $self is the hash reference passed to new(), and $class is Parrot::Pmc2c.

dynext_load_code($library_name, %classes)

$library_name is the name of the dynamic library to be created.

%classes is a map from the PMC names for which code is to be generated, to dump info (PMC metadata).

This function is exported.

Class Methods

new($self, $opt)

Returns $self as a new instance.

$self is a hash reference eval-ed from a *.dump file generated by tools/build/pmc2c.pl from a *.pmc file. It is bless-ed either into Parrot::Pmc2c::::Standard, or into one of the other special PMCs: default, delegate, Null, Ref or SharedRef.

$opt is a hash reference.

Instance Methods

line_directive($self,$line,$file)

Generates the C pre processor string for a #line directive, or an empty string if $self-{opt}{nolines}> is true.

line_directive_here($self,$output,$file)

Generates the C pre processor string for a #line directive to reset the compiler's line number to the next physical line in the output.

get_vtable_section()

Creates a hash of all the method names containing vtable section. Called from init().

make_const($class)

If the PMC had its const_too flag set then this method is called in init() to to create the read-only set methods.

init($class)

Initializes the instance. $class is its class.

decl($classname, $method, $for_header)

Returns the C code for the PMC method declaration. $for_header indicates whether the code is for a header or implementation file.

includes()

Returns the C #include for the header file of each of the PMC's superclasses.

full_arguments($args)

Prepends INTERP, SELF to $args.

proto($type,$parameters)

Determines the prototype (argument signature) for a method body (see src/call_list).

rewrite_nci_method($class, $method, $super, $super_table)

Rewrites the method body performing the various macro substitutions for nci method bodies (see tools/build/pmc2c.pl).

rewrite_vtable_method($class, $method, $super, $super_table)

Rewrites the method body performing the various macro substitutions for vtable method bodies (see tools/build/pmc2c.pl).

body($method, $line, $out_name)

Returns the C code for the method body. $line is used to accumulate the number of lines, $out_name is the name of the output file we are generating.

methods($line, $out_name)

Returns the C code for the vtable methods. $line is used to accumulate the number of lines, $out_name is the name of the output file we are generating.

lib_load_code()

Returns the C code for loading a library.

pmc_is_dynpmc

Determines if a given PMC type is dynamically loaded or not.

init_func()

Returns the C code for the PMC's initialization method, or an empty string if the PMC has a no_init flag.

gen_c($out_name)

Generates the C implementation file code for the PMC. $out_name is the name of the output file we are generating.

hdecls()

Returns the C code function declarations for all the methods for inclusion in the PMC's C header file.

TODO include MMD variants.

gen_h($out_name)

Generates the C header file code for the PMC. $out_name is the name of the output file we are generating.

implements($method)

True if this class generates code for the method $method.

implements_vtable($method)

True if this class generates code for VTABLE method $method.

SUBCLASSES

Parrot::Pmc2c::Standard Instance Methods

Standard behavior.

body($method, $line, $out_name)

Returns the C code for the method body. $line is used to accumulate the number of lines, $out_name is the name of the output file we are generating.

Parrot::Pmc2c::Standard::Const Instance Methods

Returns the C code for the method body.

body($method, $line, $out_name)

Returns the C code for the method body. $line is used to accumulate the number of lines, $out_name is the name of the output file we are generating.
