va_arg()

get next argument in variable argument list 

Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <stdarg.h>

arg_type va_arg(va_list p, arg_type);


DESCRIPTION

The va_arg() macro returns the next argument in the variable argument list pointed to by p. Each invocation of va_arg() modifies p such that the values of successive arguments are returned in turn. The type parameter is the type the argument is expected to be. This is the type name specified such that the type of a pointer to an object that has the specified type can be obtained simply by suffixing a * to type. Different types can be mixed, but it is up to the routine to know what type of argument is expected.

The list p must be initialized by calling va_start() before any calls to va_arg(). The list p must be finalized by calling va_end().
