Define Documentation


This macro can be used to declare all namespace members for export from a shared library (DLL on Windows). It defaults to an empty string (nothing is exported).
This will not be defined when there's already a preprocessor definition with this name.

#define MSTRING_LOCALE   1

MSTRING_LOCALE == 1 (the default) enables the locale environment LC_CTYPE being set to the current locale setting as provided by the system on creating the first MString object. Setting it to 0 will cause accent characters not being handled correctly in case conversions and sorting.
The functionality of mstring::MString::setNumLocale() and mstring::MString::setTimeLocale() are not affected by this.

#define foreach ( VARIABLE,


    (ITERATOR != STLCONTAINER.end()) && ((VARIABLE = *ITERATOR) || true); \
This macro is a simple foreach implementation to make stepping through STL containers (vectors, lists etc.) more convenient; you don't need to assign, increment and check the iterator manually. It takes the following arguments:

All arguments have to be instantiated before invoking foreach(). The arguments must be variables, not function calls. Example:

    MString s;
    MStringList::const_iterator i;
    MStringList l = ...

    foreach(s, i, l)
      //Do something with s

The macro will not be defined if there's already a preprocessor definition with the same name.
