Module: Fiddle::CStructBuilder

Defined in:
lib/fiddle/struct.rb

Overview

Used to construct C classes (CUnion, CStruct, etc)

Fiddle::Importer#struct and Fiddle::Importer#union wrap this functionality in an easy-to-use manner.

Class Method Summary collapse

Class Method Details

.create(klass, types, members) ⇒ Object

Construct a new class given a C:

  • class klass (CUnion, CStruct, or other that provide an #entity_class)

  • types (Fiddle::TYPE_INT, Fiddle::TYPE_SIZE_T, etc., see the C types constants)

  • corresponding members

Fiddle::Importer#struct and Fiddle::Importer#union wrap this functionality in an easy-to-use manner.

Examples:

require 'fiddle/struct'
require 'fiddle/cparser'

include Fiddle::CParser

types, members = parse_struct_signature(['int i','char c'])

MyStruct = Fiddle::CStructBuilder.create(Fiddle::CUnion, types, members)

MyStruct.malloc(Fiddle::RUBY_FREE) do |obj|
  ...
end

obj = MyStruct.malloc(Fiddle::RUBY_FREE)
begin
  ...
ensure
  obj.call_free
end

obj = MyStruct.malloc
begin
  ...
ensure
  Fiddle.free obj.to_ptr
end
