# DCTypedef¶

class DCTypedef

Bases: DCDeclaration

This represents a single typedef declaration in the dc file. It assigns a particular type to a new name, just like a C typedef.

Inheritance diagram

std::string get_description(void) const

Returns a brief decription of the typedef, useful for human consumption.

std::string const &get_name(void) const

Returns the name of this typedef.

int get_number(void) const

Returns a unique index number associated with this typedef definition. This is defined implicitly when the .dc file(s) are read.

bool is_bogus_typedef(void) const

Returns true if the typedef has been flagged as a bogus typedef. This is set for typedefs that are generated by the parser as placeholder for missing typedefs, as when reading a partial file; it should not occur in a normal valid dc file.

bool is_implicit_typedef(void) const

Returns true if the typedef has been flagged as an implicit typedef, meaning it was created for a DCClass that was referenced inline as a type.
