Namespace cpp::

Description

Pike has a builtin C-style preprocessor. It works similar to the ANSI-C preprocessor but has a few extra features. These and the default set of preprocessor macros are described here.


Constant __AUTO_BIGNUM__

constant __AUTO_BIGNUM__

Description

This define is defined when automatic bignum conversion is enabled. When enabled all integers will automatically be converted to bignums when they get bigger than what can be represented by an integer, hampering performance slightly instead of crashing the program.


Constant __BUILD__

constant __BUILD__

Description

This constant contains the build number of the current Pike version, represented as an integer. If another Pike version is emulated, this constant remains unaltered.

__REAL_MINOR__


Variable __COUNTER__

int(1..) __COUNTER__

Description

This define contains a unique counter (unless it has been expanded Inte.NATIVE_MAX times) represented as an integer.


Constant __DATE__

constant __DATE__

Description

This define contains the current date at the time of compilation, e.g. "Jul 28 2001".


Constant __DIR__

constant __DIR__

Description

This define contains the directory path of the source file.


Constant __FILE__

constant __FILE__

Description

This define contains the file path and name of the source file.


Constant __LINE__

constant __LINE__

Description

This define contains the current line number, represented as an integer, in the source file.


Constant __MAJOR__

constant __MAJOR__

Description

This define contains the major part of the current Pike version, represented as an integer. If another Pike version is emulated, this define is updated accordingly.

See also

__REAL_MAJOR__


Constant __MINOR__

constant __MINOR__

Description

This define contains the minor part of the current Pike version, represented as an integer. If another Pike version is emulated, this define is updated accordingly.

See also

__REAL_MINOR__


Constant __NT__

constant __NT__

Description

This define is defined when the Pike is running on a Microsoft Windows OS, not just Microsoft Windows NT, as the name implies.


Constant __OS2__

constant __OS2__

Description

This define is defined when the Pike is running on IBM OS/2.


Constant __PIKE__

constant __PIKE__

Description

This define is always true.


Constant __REAL_BUILD__

constant __REAL_BUILD__

Description

This define always contains the minor part of the version of the current Pike, represented as an integer.

See also

__BUILD__


Constant __REAL_MAJOR__

constant __REAL_MAJOR__

Description

This define always contains the major part of the version of the current Pike, represented as an integer.

See also

__MAJOR__


Constant __REAL_MINOR__

constant __REAL_MINOR__

Description

This define always contains the minor part of the version of the current Pike, represented as an integer.

See also

__MINOR__


Constant __REAL_VERSION__

constant __REAL_VERSION__

Description

This define always contains the version of the current Pike, represented as a float.

See also

__VERSION__


Constant __TIME__

constant __TIME__

Description

This define contains the current time at the time of compilation, e.g. "12:20:51".


Constant __VERSION__

constant __VERSION__

Description

This define contains the current Pike version as a float. If another Pike version is emulated, this define is updated accordingly.

__REAL_VERSION__


Constant __amigaos__

constant __amigaos__

Description

This define is defined when the Pike is running on Amiga OS.


Constant static_assert

constant static_assert

Description

This define expands to the symbol _Static_assert.

It is the preferred way to perform static (ie compile-time) assertions.

Note

The macro can also be used to check for whether static assertions are supported.
