Class dmd.backend.obj.Obj

Generic interface to the four object module file formats supported. Instead of using virtual functions (i.e. virtual dispatch) it uses static dispatch. Since config.objfmt never changes after initialization of the compiler, static branch prediction should make it faster than virtual dispatch.

class Obj ;

Making static dispatch work requires tediously repetitive boilerplate, which we accomplish via string mixins.


factory (classname) Create instance of class specified by the fully qualified name classname. The class must either have no constructors or have a default constructor.
opCmp (o) Compare with another Object obj.
opEquals (o) Test whether this is equal to o. The default implementation only compares by identity (using the is operator). Generally, overrides for opEquals should attempt to compare objects by their contents.
toHash () Compute hash function for Object.
toString () Convert Object to a human readable string.
