Synopsis

#include "eif_cecil.h" EIF_PROCEDURE eif_procedure (char * name, int * tid);

Description

The eif_procedure function returns the address of the Eiffel procedure of name name from the class, which type identifier is tid.

If the visible exception is enabled, it raises an visible exception upon failure.

Return value

Successful: Address of the procedure. Failing: NULL. (The procedure does not exist or is not visible).

Otherwise, the address of the procedure is returned.

Notes

The Eiffel procedure cannot be a C external. In this case, you must directly call the C routine.

The return value is an address: to use it as a routine, you must call it with arguments or at least with ().

No argument type checking is done. You may cast the address of an Eiffel routine obtained with eif_procedure when calling it with real arguments.

Conformance

ISE Eiffel 4.4 and later.

Compatibility

eif_procedure is equivalent to eif_proc, which is deprecated.
