src/pmc/ref.pmc - Reference to a PMC


The vtable functions for the Ref base class.

All methods not present below get a default body autogenerated inside Parrot::Pmc2c.

Methods ^

void init()

Sets the referenced PMC to PMCNULL.

void init_pmc(PMC *initializer)

Sets the referenced PMC to initializer.

void set_pmc(PMC *other)

Sets the referenced PMC to *other.

PMC *get_pmc()

Get the referenced PMC.

INTVAL type()

These two methods must be implemented because they are not delegated.
