During this method a distinct collection of software statements should be compiled from one construct to a different. this system can be utilized to evolve a unmarried application to numerous objective platforms, for instance, with no requiring amendment of the resource code. Syntax: #if expression1 [text1] [#elif expression2 text2] . . . [#elif expression(n) text(n)] [#else text(n+1)] #endif every one #if directive should be by means of any variety of #elif directives, and at so much one #else directive. The conditional resource code part needs to be closed through an #endif directive. The preprocessor evaluates expression1, expression2, and so forth. in succession. on the first expression whose worth is "true", i. e. , now not equivalent to zero, the conditional code is processed. If not one of the expressions is right, then the #else directive is processed, if current. expression1, expression2, and so forth. has to be consistent integer expressions. the forged operator can't be utilized in preprocessing directives. The conditional textual content comprises software code, together with different preprocessing directives and usual C statements. Conditional textual content that the preprocessor skips over is successfully faraway from this system. identify The outlined operator Synopsis The outlined operator can be utilized to make sure no matter if a given macro identify is at the moment outlined. Syntax: outlined (name) The operator yields a non-zero price if a legitimate definition exists for identify; differently it yields the worth zero. A macro identify outlined by means of a #define directive continues to be outlined until eventually it really is cancelled through an #undef directive. A macro identify is taken into account to be outlined no matter if no alternative textual content is targeted after identify within the #define directive. The outlined operator is sometimes utilized in #if and #elif directives: #if defined(VERSION ... #endif in contrast to the #ifdef and #ifndef directives, the outlined operator yields a price that may be utilized in a preprocessor expression: #if defined(VERSION) && defined(STATUS ... #endif identify #ifdef and #ifndef Synopsis The #ifdef and #ifndef directives can be utilized to make software textual content at once conditional upon no matter if a given macro identify is outlined. Syntax: #ifdef identify #ifndef identify The #ifdef directive is "true" if identify is outlined, and the #ifndef directive is "true" if identify isn't really outlined. either require a last #endif directive. the next buildings are an identical: #ifdef model ... #endif #if defined(VERSION ... #endif identify #line Synopsis The compiler identifies error it encounters in the course of compilation by way of the resource filename and the road quantity within the dossier. The #line directive can be utilized to alter the filename and line numbering within the resource dossier itself. Syntax: #line new_number ["filename"] From this situation within the dossier onward, traces are counted ranging from new_number. If filename is additionally specific, it turns into the recent filename indicated via the compiler in any blunders messages. the hot filename has to be enclosed in citation marks, and new_number has to be an integer consistent. instance: #line 500 "my_prg. c" The #line directive is sometimes utilized by application turbines in translating different kinds of code right into a C application.
