Hi All.

What is the E equivalent of C struct definition?

I have a definition in my C code:

Quote:
struct DiskObject *appicon;


and don't know how to adapt it to AmigaE.

@r-tea

I have a vague memory that you could use it like this is E :

appicon:PTR TO diskobject

I might be way off now though, it was at least 15 years I touched E lately =)

ALMOST correct! To be completely correct it would be:

DEF appicon:PTR TO diskobject

@r-tea

To answer your question in E it is called an OBJECT. Not shouting on purpose but E likes capitals.

Unlike C an object can also have the properties of a C++ class.

Also, E does have #defines, but in proper use in E it uses CONSTs,

Should be here like the C header:
MODULE 'workbench/workbench'
