mruby configuration macros.

How to use these macros.

You can use mrbconfs with following ways: * Write them in mrbconf.h. * Using compiler flags is preferred when building a cross binaries or multiple mruby binaries since it’s easier to use different mrbconf per each MRuby::Build. * Most flags can be enabled by just commenting in. * Pass them as compiler flags. * Make sure you pass the same flags to all compilers since some mrbconf(e.g., MRB_GC_FIXED_ARENA) changes struct layout and cause memory access error when C and other language(e.g., C++) is mixed.

stdio setting.

MRB_DISABLE_STDIO * When defined <stdio.h> functions won't be used. * Some features will be disabled when this is enabled: * mrb_irep load/dump from/to file. * Compiling mruby script from file. * Printing features in src/print.c.

Debug macros.

MRB_ENABLE_DEBUG_HOOK * When defined code fetch hook and debug OP hook will be enabled. * When using any of the hook set function pointer code_fetch_hook and/or debug_op_hook of mrb_state. * Fetch hook will be called before any OP. * Debug OP hook will be called when dispatching OP_DEBUG.

MRB_DEBUG * When defined mrb_assert* macro will be defined with macros from <assert.h>. * Could be enabled via enable_debug method of MRuby::Build.

Stack configuration

MRB_STACK_EXTEND_DOUBLING * If defined doubles the stack size when extending it. * Else extends stack with MRB_STACK_GROWTH.

MRB_STACK_GROWTH * Default value is 128. * Used in stack extending. * Ignored when MRB_STACK_EXTEND_DOUBLING is defined.

MRB_STACK_MAX * Default value is 0x40000 - MRB_STACK_GROWTH. * Raises RuntimeError when stack size exceeds this value.

Primitive type configuration.

MRB_USE_FLOAT * When defined single precision floating point type(C type float) is used as mrb_float. * Else double precision floating point type(C type double) is used as mrb_float.

MRB_INT16 * When defined int16_t will be defined as mrb_int. * Conflicts with MRB_INT64.

MRB_INT64 * When defined int64_t will be defined as mrb_int. * Conflicts with MRB_INT16. * When MRB_INT16 or MRB_INT64 isn't defined int(most of the times 32-bit integer) will be defined as mrb_int.

Garbage collector configuration.

MRB_GC_STRESS * When defined full GC is emitted per each RBasic allocation. * Mainly used in memory manager debugging.

MRB_GC_TURN_OFF_GENERATIONAL * When defined turns generational GC by default.

MRB_GC_FIXED_ARENA * When defined used fixed size GC arena. * Raises RuntimeError when this is defined and GC arena size exceeds MRB_GC_ARENA_SIZE. * Useful tracking unnecessary mruby object allocation.

MRB_GC_ARENA_SIZE * Default value is 100. * Ignored when MRB_GC_FIXED_ARENA isn't defined. * Defines fixed GC arena size.

MRB_HEAP_PAGE_SIZE * Defines value is 1024. * Specifies number of RBasic per each heap page.

Memory pool configuration.

POOL_ALIGNMENT * Default value is 4. * If you're allocating data types that requires alignment more than default value define the largest value of required alignment.

POOL_PAGE_SIZE * Default value is 16000. * Specifies page size of pool page. * Smaller the value is increases memory overhead.

State atexit configuration.

MRB_FIXED_STATE_ATEXIT_STACK * If defined enables fixed size mrb_state atexit stack. * Raises RuntimeError when mrb_state_atexit call count to same mrb_state exceeds MRB_FIXED_STATE_ATEXIT_STACK_SIZE's value.

MRB_FIXED_STATE_ATEXIT_STACK_SIZE * Default value is 5. * If MRB_FIXED_STATE_ATEXIT_STACK isn't defined this macro is ignored.

mrb_value configuration.

MRB_ENDIAN_BIG * If defined compiles mruby for big endian machines. * Used in MRB_NAN_BOXING. * Some mrbgem use this mrbconf.

MRB_NAN_BOXING * If defined represent mrb_value in boxed double. * Conflicts with MRB_USE_FLOAT.

MRB_WORD_BOXING * If defined represent mrb_value as a word. * If defined Float will be a mruby object with RBasic.

Instance variable configuration.

MRB_USE_IV_SEGLIST * If defined enable segmented list in instance variable table instead of khash. * Segmented list is a linked list of key and value segments. * It will linear search instead of hash search.

MRB_SEGMENT_SIZE * Default value is 4. * Specifies size of each segment in segment list. * Ignored when MRB_USE_IV_SEGLIST isn't defined.

MRB_IVHASH_INIT_SIZE * Default value is 8. * Specifies initial size for instance variable table. * Ignored when MRB_USE_IV_SEGLIST is defined.

Other configuration.

MRB_UTF8_STRING * Adds UTF-8 encoding support to character-oriented String instance methods. * If it isn't defined, they only support the US-ASCII encoding.

MRB_FUNCALL_ARGC_MAX * Default value is 16. * Specifies 4th argument(argc) max value of mrb_funcall. * Raises ArgumentError when the argc argument is bigger then this value mrb_funcall.

KHASH_DEFAULT_SIZE * Default value is 32. * Specifies default size of khash table bucket. * Used in kh_init_ ## name function.

MRB_STR_BUF_MIN_SIZE * Default value is 128. * Specifies initial capacity of RString created by mrb_str_buf_new function..
