NAME
       Uil — Invokes the UIL compiler from within an application

SYNOPSIS
       #include <uil/UilDef.h>

       Uil_status_type Uil(
       Uil_command_type *command_desc,
       Uil_compile_desc_type **compile_desc,
       Uil_continue_type (*message_cb) (),
       char *message_data,
       Uil_continue_type (*status_cb) (),
       char *status_data);

DESCRIPTION
       The Uil function provides a callable entry point for the UIL compiler.
       The Uil callable interface can be used to process a UIL source file and
       to generate UID files, as well as return a detailed description of the
       UIL source module in the form of a symbol table (parse tree).

       command_desc
                 Specifies the uil command line.

       compile_desc
                 Returns the results of the compilation.

       message_cb
                 Specifies a callback function that is called when the
                 compiler encounters errors in the UIL source.

       message_data
                 Specifies user data that is passed to the message callback
                 function (message_cb). Note that this argument is not
                 interpreted by UIL, and is used exclusively by the calling
                 application.

       status_cb Specifies a callback function that is called to allow X
                 applications to service X events such as updating the screen.
                 This function is called at various check points, which have
                 been hard coded into the UIL compiler.  The
                 status_update_delay argument in command_desc specifies the
                 number of check points to be passed before the status_cb
                 function is invoked.

       status_data
                 Specifies user data that is passed to the status callback
                 function (status_cb).  Note that this argument is not
                 interpreted by the UIL compiler and is used exclusively by
                 the calling application.

       Following are the data structures Uil_command_type and
       Uil_compile_desc_type:

       typedef struct Uil_command_type {
       char *source_file;
           /* single source to compile */
       char *resource_file; /* name of output file */
       char *listing_file; /* name of listing file */
       unsigned int *include_dir_count;
           /* number of dirs. in include_dir */
       char *((*include_dir) []);
           /* dir. to search for include files */
       unsigned listing_file_flag: 1;
           /* produce a listing */
       unsigned resource_file_flag: 1;
           /* generate UID output */
       unsigned machine_code_flag: 1;
           /* generate machine code */
       unsigned report_info_msg_flag: 1;
           /* report info messages */
       unsigned report_warn_msg_flag: 1;
           /* report warnings */
       unsigned parse_tree_flag: 1;
           /* generate parse tree */
       unsigned int status_update_delay;
           /* number of times a status point is */
           /* passed before calling status_cb */
           /* function 0 means called every time */
       char *database;
           /* name of database file */
       unsigned database_flag: 1;
           /* read a new database file */
       unsigned use_setlocale_flag: 1;
           /* enable calls to setlocale */
       };
       typedef struct Uil_compile_desc_type {
       unsigned int compiler_version;
           /* version number of compiler */
       unsigned int data_version;
           /* version number of structures */
       char *parse_tree_root; /* parse tree output */
       unsigned int message_count [Uil_k_max_status+1];
       /* array of severity counts */
       };

       Following is a description of the message callback function specified
       by message_cb:

       Uil_continue_type (*message_cb) (message_data, message_number, severity, msg_buffer,
       src_buffer, ptr_buffer, loc_buffer, message_count)
               char *message_data;
               int message_number;
               int severity;
               char *msg_buffer, *src_buffer;
               char *ptr_buffer, *loc_buffer;
               int message_count[];

       This function specifies a callback function that UIL invokes instead of
       printing an error message when the compiler encounters an error in the
       UIL source.  The callback should return one of the following values:

       Uil_k_terminate
                 Terminate processing of the source file

       Uil_k_continue
                 Continue processing the source file

       The arguments are

       message_data
                 Data supplied by the application as the message_data argument
                 to the Uil function.  UIL does not interpret this data in any
                 way; it just passes it to the callback.

       message_number
                 An index into a table of error messages and severities for
                 internal use by UIL.

       severity  An integer that indicates the severity of the error.  The
                 possible values are the status constants returned by the Uil
                 function.  See Return Value for more information.

       msg_buffer
                 A string that describes the error.

       src_buffer
                 A string consisting of the source line where the error
                 occurred.  This string is not always available. In this case,
                 the argument is NULL.

       ptr_buffer
                 A string consisting of whitespace and a printing character in
                 the character position corresponding to the column of the
                 source line where the error occurred.  This string may be
                 printed beneath the source line to provide a visual
                 indication of the column where the error occurred.  This
                 string is not always available. In this case, the argument is
                 NULL.

       loc_buffer
                 A string identifying the line number and file of the source
                 line where the error occurred.  This is not always available;
                 the argument is then NULL.

       message_count
                 An array of integers containing the number of diagnostic
                 messages issued thus far for each severity level.  To find
                 the number of messages issued for the current severity level,
                 use the severity argument as the index into this array.

       Following is a description of the status callback function specified by
       status_cb:

       Uil_continue_type (*status_cb) (status_data, percent_complete,
               lines_processed, current_file, message_count)
               char *status_data;
               int percent_complete;
               int lines_processed;
               char *current_file;
               int message_count[];

       This function specifies a callback function that is invoked to allow X
       applications to service X events such as updating the screen.  The
       callback should return one of the following values:

       Uil_k_terminate
                 Terminate processing of the source file

       Uil_k_continue
                 Continue processing the source file

       The arguments are

       status_data
                 Data supplied by the application as the status_data argument
                 to the Uil function.  UIL does not interpret this data in any
                 way; it just passes it to the callback.

       percent_complete
                 An integer indicating what percentage of the current source
                 file has been processed so far.

       lines_processed
                 An integer indicating how many lines of the current source
                 file have been read so far.

       current_file
                 A string containing the pathname of the current source file.

       message_count
                 An array of integers containing the number of diagnostic
                 messages issued thus far for each severity level.  To find
                 the number of messages issued for a given severity level, use
                 the severity level as the index into this array.  The
                 possible severity levels are the status constants returned by
                 the Uil function.  See Return Value for more information.

RETURN
       This function returns one of the following status return constants:

       Uil_k_success_status
                 The operation succeeded.

       Uil_k_info_status
                 The operation succeeded. An informational message is
                 returned.

       Uil_k_warning_status

                 The operation failed due to an error.

       Uil_k_severe_status
                 The operation failed due to an error.
