Tcl_NewDoubleObj(), Tcl_SetDoubleObj(), Tcl_GetDoubleFromObj()

manipulate Tcl objects as floating-point values 

Tcl Library Procedures


SYNOPSIS

#include <tcl.h>

Tcl_Obj * Tcl_NewDoubleObj(doubleValue)

Tcl_SetDoubleObj(objPtr, doubleValue)

int Tcl_GetDoubleFromObj(interp, objPtr, doublePtr)


ARGUMENTS

double doubleValue (in) 

A double-precision floating point value used to initialize or set a double object.

Tcl_Obj *objPtr (in/out) 

For Tcl_SetDoubleObj(), this points to the object to be converted to double type. For Tcl_GetDoubleFromObj(), this refers to the object from which to get a double value; if objPtr does not already point to a double object, 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.

double *doublePtr (out) 

Points to place to store the double value obtained from objPtr.


DESCRIPTION

These procedures are used to create, modify, and read double Tcl objects from C code. Tcl_NewDoubleObj() and Tcl_SetDoubleObj() will create a new object of double type or modify an existing object to have double type. Both of these procedures set the object to have the double-precision floating point value given by doubleValue; Tcl_NewDoubleObj() returns a pointer to a newly created object with reference count zero. Both procedures set the object's type to be double and assign the double value to the object's internal representation doubleValue member. Tcl_SetDoubleObj() invalidates any old string representation and, if the object is not already a double object, frees any old internal representation.

Tcl_GetDoubleFromObj() attempts to return a double value from the Tcl object objPtr. If the object is not already a double object, it will attempt to convert it to one. If an error occurs during conversion, it returns TCL_ERROR and leaves an error message in the interpreter's result object unless interp is NULL. Otherwise, it returns TCL_OK and stores the double value in the address given by doublePtr. If the object is not already a double object, the conversion will free any old internal representation.
