There exists a capability unique to Liberty Eiffel of putting C code in line. Of course, this method is only usable with compile_to_c.

Two methods c_inline_c and c_inline_h are defined in ANY. These two methods take a single parameter, a manifest character string.

  • c_inline_c inserts in line, at the appropriate spot in the generated feature, the C code of the character string;
  • c_inline_h inserts the C code of the character string in the Liberty Eiffel generated header file (.h).

Use of these functions implies a precise knowledge of the Liberty Eiffel C code (and doesn't favour portability). We don't guarantee backwards compatibility with code using these two methods.

If, despite all these warnings, you want to know more, read this page.
