Toolchain

This module defines a toolchain abstraction layer through macros.

Summary

Usage:

typedef
OT_TOOL_PACKED_BEGIN
struct
{
    char mField1;
    union
    {
        char mField2;
        long mField3;
    } OT_TOOL_PACKED_FIELD;
} OT_TOOL_PACKED_END packed_struct_t;

Macros

OT_APPLE_IGNORE_GNU_FOLDING_CONSTANT

 OT_APPLE_IGNORE_GNU_FOLDING_CONSTANT __VA_ARGS__

OT_FALL_THROUGH

 OT_FALL_THROUGH do                  \
    {                   \
    } while (false) /* fallthrough */

Suppress fall through warning in specific compiler.

OT_MUST_USE_RESULT

 OT_MUST_USE_RESULT

Compiler-specific indication that a class or enum must be used when it is the return value of a function.

OT_TOOL_PACKED_BEGIN

 OT_TOOL_PACKED_BEGIN

Compiler-specific indication that a class or struct must be byte packed.

OT_TOOL_PACKED_FIELD

 OT_TOOL_PACKED_FIELD

Indicate to the compiler a nested struct or union to be packed within byte packed class or struct.

OT_TOOL_PRINTF_STYLE_FORMAT_ARG_CHECK

 OT_TOOL_PRINTF_STYLE_FORMAT_ARG_CHECK

This macro specifies that a function or method takes printf style arguments and should be type-checked against a format string.

This macro must be added after the function/method declaration. For example:

void MyPrintf(void *aObject, const char *aFormat, ...) OT_TOOL_PRINTF_STYLE_FORMAT_ARG_CHECK(2, 3);

The two argument index values indicate format string and first argument to check against it. They start at index 1 for the first parameter in a function and at index 2 for the first parameter in a method.

Details
Parameters
[in] aFmtIndex
The argument index of the format string.
[in] aStartIndex
The argument index of the first argument to check against the format string.

OT_TOOL_WEAK

 OT_TOOL_WEAK

Compiler-specific weak symbol modifier.

OT_UNREACHABLE_CODE

 OT_UNREACHABLE_CODE CODE

Suppress Unreachable code warning in specific toolchains.

OT_UNUSED_VARIABLE

 OT_UNUSED_VARIABLE do                               \
    {                                \
        (void)(VARIABLE);            \
    } while (false)

Suppress unused variable warning in specific toolchains.
