Class MasterObject

Inheritance graph
Description

Master control program for Pike.

See also

master(), replace_master()


Variable Decoder

program MasterObject.Decoder

Description

This program in the master is cloned and used as codec by decode_value if it wasn't given any codec. An instance is only created on-demand the first time decode_value encounters something for which it needs a codec, i.e. the result of a call to Pike.Encoder.nameof.

See also

Decoder, Pike.Decoder


Variable Encoder

program MasterObject.Encoder

Description

This program in the master is cloned and used as codec by encode_value if it wasn't given any codec. An instance is only created on-demand the first time encode_value encounters something for which it needs a codec, i.e. an object, program, or function.

See also

Encoder, Pike.Encoder


Variable _pike_file_name
Variable _master_file_name

string MasterObject._pike_file_name
string MasterObject._master_file_name

Description

These are useful if you want to start other Pike processes with the same options as this one was started with.


Constant bt_max_string_len

constant int MasterObject.bt_max_string_len

Description

This constant contains the maximum length of a function entry in a backtrace. Defaults to 200 if no BT_MAX_STRING_LEN define has been given.


Variable cflags

string MasterObject.cflags

Description

Flags suitable for use when compiling Pike C modules


Variable compat_major

int MasterObject.compat_major

Description

Major pike version to emulate.

This is typically set via the option "-V".

See also

compat_minor


Variable compat_minor

int MasterObject.compat_minor

Description

Minor pike version to emulate.

This is typically set via the option "-V".

See also

compat_major


Variable currentversion

Version MasterObject.currentversion

Description

Version information about the current Pike version.


Variable doc_prefix

string MasterObject.doc_prefix

Description

Prefix for autodoc files.


Variable programs
Variable documentation
Variable source_cache

mapping(string:program|NoValue) MasterObject.programs
mapping(program:object) MasterObject.documentation
mapping(program:string) MasterObject.source_cache

Description

Mapping containing the cache of currently compiled files.

This mapping currently has the following structure:

filename : program

The filename path separator is / on both NT and UNIX.

Note

Special cases: The current master program is available under the name "/master", and the program containing the main function under "/main".


Variable include_prefix

string MasterObject.include_prefix

Description

Prefix for Pike-related C header files.


Inherit Codec

inherit Codec : Codec


Inherit CompatResolver

inherit CompatResolver : CompatResolver


Inherit CompilationHandler

inherit CompilationHandler : CompilationHandler

Description

The master object acts as fallback compilation handler for compile() and cpp().


Inherit Pike_8_0_master

protected inherit Pike_8_0_master : Pike_8_0_master

Description

Namespaces for compat masters.

This inherit is used to provide compatibility namespaces for get_compat_master().

See also

get_compat_master()


Variable is_pike_master

int MasterObject.is_pike_master

Description

This integer variable should exist in any object that aspires to be the master. It gets set to 1 when the master is installed, and is therefore set in any object that is or has been the master. That makes the Encoder class encode references to the master and all ex-masters as references to the current master object.


Variable ldflags

string MasterObject.ldflags

Description

Flags suitable for use when linking Pike C modules


Constant out_of_date_warning

constant int MasterObject.out_of_date_warning

Description

Should Pike complain about out of date compiled files. 1 means yes and 0 means no. Controlled by the OUT_OF_DATE_WARNING define.


Variable show_if_constant_errors

int MasterObject.show_if_constant_errors

Description

Show compilation warnings from compilation of cpp() #if constant() expressions.

This is typically set via the option "--picky-cpp".


Variable want_warnings

int MasterObject.want_warnings

Description

If not zero compilation warnings will be written out on stderr.
