NAME

Tcl_NewIntObj, Tcl_NewLongObj, Tcl_NewWideIntObj, Tcl_SetIntObj, Tcl_SetLongObj, Tcl_SetWideIntObj, Tcl_GetIntFromObj, Tcl_GetLongFromObj, Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj - manipulate Tcl objects as integers and wide integers

SYNOPSIS

#include <tcl.h>

Tcl_Obj * Tcl_NewIntObj(intValue)

Tcl_Obj * Tcl_NewLongObj(longValue)

Tcl_Obj * Tcl_NewWideIntObj(wideValue)

Tcl_SetIntObj(objPtr, intValue)

Tcl_SetLongObj(objPtr, longValue)

Tcl_SetWideIntObj(objPtr, wideValue)

int Tcl_GetIntFromObj(interp, objPtr, intPtr)

int Tcl_GetLongFromObj(interp, objPtr, longPtr)

int Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj(interp, objPtr, widePtr)

ARGUMENTS

int intValue (in)
Integer value used to initialize or set an integer object.

long longValue (in)
Long integer value used to initialize or set an integer object.

Tcl_WideInt wideValue (in)
Wide integer value (minimum 64-bits wide where supported by the compiler) used to initialize or set a wide integer object.

Tcl_Obj *objPtr (in/out)
For Tcl_SetIntObj, Tcl_SetLongObj, and Tcl_SetWideIntObj, this points to the object to be converted to integer type. For Tcl_GetIntFromObj, Tcl_GetLongFromObj, and Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj, this refers to the object from which to get an integer or long integer value; if objPtr does not already point to an integer object (or a wide integer object in the case of Tcl_SetWideIntObj and Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj,) an attempt will be made to convert it to one.

Tcl_Interp *interp (in/out)
If an error occurs during conversion, an error message is left in the interpreter's result object unless interp is NULL.

int *intPtr (out)
Points to place to store the integer value obtained by Tcl_GetIntFromObj from objPtr.

long *longPtr (out)
Points to place to store the long integer value obtained by Tcl_GetLongFromObj from objPtr.

Tcl_WideInt *widePtr (out)
Points to place to store the wide integer value obtained by Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj from objPtr.

DESCRIPTION

These procedures are used to create, modify, and read integer and wide integer Tcl objects from C code. Tcl_NewIntObj, Tcl_NewLongObj, Tcl_SetIntObj, and Tcl_SetLongObj create a new object of integer type or modify an existing object to have integer type, and Tcl_NewWideIntObj and Tcl_SetWideIntObj create a new object of wide integer type or modify an existing object to have wide integer type. Tcl_NewIntObj and Tcl_SetIntObj set the object to have the integer value given by intValue, Tcl_NewLongObj and Tcl_SetLongObj set the object to have the long integer value given by longValue, and Tcl_NewWideIntObj and Tcl_SetWideIntObj set the object to have the wide integer value given by wideValue. Tcl_NewIntObj, Tcl_NewLongObj and Tcl_NewWideIntObj return a pointer to a newly created object with reference count zero. These procedures set the object's type to be integer and assign the integer value to the object's internal representation longValue or wideValue member (as appropriate). Tcl_SetIntObj, Tcl_SetLongObj and Tcl_SetWideIntObj invalidate any old string representation and, if the object is not already an integer object, free any old internal representation.

Tcl_GetIntFromObj and Tcl_GetLongFromObj attempt to return an integer value from the Tcl object objPtr, and Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj attempts to return a wide integer value from the Tcl object objPtr. If the object is not already an integer object, or a wide integer object in the case of Tcl_GetWideIntFromObj they will attempt to convert it to one. If an error occurs during conversion, they return TCL_ERROR and leave an error message in the interpreter's result object unless interp is NULL. Also, if the long integer held in the object's internal representation longValue member can not be represented in a (non-long) integer, Tcl_GetIntFromObj returns TCL_ERROR and leaves an error message in the interpreter's result object unless interp is NULL. Otherwise, all three procedures return TCL_OK and store the integer, long integer value or wide integer in the address given by intPtr, longPtr and widePtr respectively. If the object is not already an integer or wide integer object, the conversion will free any old internal representation.
