Methods

Fiddle::CStructBuilder

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

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

Public Class Methods

create(klass, types, members) click to toggle source

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.

Example:

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)

obj = MyStruct.allocate

          @entity.assign_names(members)
        }
        define_method(:to_ptr){ @entity }
        define_method(:to_i){ @entity.to_i }

        def new_class.malloc()
          addr = Fiddle.malloc(#{size})
          new(addr)
