Detailed Description

The compilerpreprocessor class is the base class for compiler modules that process a unit of code in its native format, before it is parsed into a tree using a grammar describing that format.

Preprocessor modules might normalize whitespace, integrate header files, expand macros, or do simple translations that would be more costly to do as operations on a tree.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ compilerpreprocessor()

compilerpreprocessor::compilerpreprocessor ( )

Creates a new instance of the compilerpreprocessor class.

◆ ~compilerpreprocessor()

virtual compilerpreprocessor::~compilerpreprocessor ( )

Deletes this instance of the compilerpreprocessor class.

Member Function Documentation

◆ process()

virtual bool compilerpreprocessor::process ( const char *  input,
stringbuffer output,
xmldomnode metadata 
pure virtual

Processes "input", writing the result to "output", optionally referring to and/or updating "metadata" during the process. Returns true on success and false on failure.
