emacs / admin / CPP-DEFINES

Here are some of the cpp macros used, together with some short explanation
of their use.  Feel free to add more macros and more categories.

** Distinguishing OSes **

CYGWIN		Compiling the Cygwin port.
__CYGWIN__	Ditto
MSDOS		Compiling the MS-DOS port.
__MSDOS__	Ditto.
__DJGPP_MINOR__ Minor version number of the DJGPP library; used only in msdos.c and dosfns.c.
DOS_NT		Compiling for either the MS-DOS or native MS-Windows port.
WINDOWSNT	Compiling the native MS-Windows (W32) port.
__MINGW32__	Compiling the W32 port with the MinGW port of GCC.
_MSC_VER	Compiling the W32 port with the Microsoft C compiler.
DARWIN_OS	Compiling on Mac OS X or pure Darwin (and using s/darwin.h).

** Distinguishing GUIs **

HAVE_NTGUI	Use the native W32 GUI for windows, frames, menus&scrollbars.
HAVE_NS		Use the NeXT/OpenStep/Cocoa UI under Mac OS X or GNUstep.
NS_IMPL_GNUSTEP	Compile support for GNUstep implementation of NS GUI API.
NS_IMPL_COCOA	Compile support for Cocoa (Apple) implementation of NS GUI API.
HAVE_X11	Compile support for the X11 GUI.
HAVE_X_WINDOWS	Compile support for X Window system
  (It looks like, nowadays, if HAVE_X11 is set, HAVE_X_WINDOWS must
   be, and vice versa.  At least, this is true for configure, and
   msdos; not sure about nt.)
USE_LUCID	Use the Lucid toolkit for menus&scrollbars.  Requires HAVE_X11.
USE_MOTIF	Use the Motif toolkit for menus&scrollbars.  Requires HAVE_X11.
USE_GTK		Use the Gtk   toolkit for menus&scrollbars.  Requires HAVE_X11.

** Frame types **

FRAME_TERMCAP_P	A tty (character terminal) frame.
FRAME_X_P	A frame on X Window system.
FRAME_MSDOS_P	An MS-DOS frame (used only by the DOS port).
FRAME_W32_P	A frame using native MS-Windows GUI.
FRAME_WINDOW_P	A GUI frame (like X, w32, etc.)

** Support for accessing other processes on the system **

HAVE_PROCFS     The /proc filesystem is supported.

** Compile-time options **

REL_ALLOC	Compile in the relocatable memory allocator ralloc.c.
SYSTEM_MALLOC	Use the system library's malloc.
subprocesses    System can use subprocesses (for M-x shell for example).  Defined by default, only MSDOS undefines it.
USE_LISP_UNION_TYPE Define it in lisp.h to make Lisp_Object be a union type instead of the default int.

** System specific macros, decribed in detail in src/s/template.h
CLASH_DETECTION
COFF
FIRST_PTY_LETTER
HAVE_PTYS
INTERRUPT_INPUT
NARROWPROTO
SEPCHAR
SYSTEM_TYPE

** Machine specific macros, decribed in detail in src/m/template.h
VIRT_ADDR_VARIES

** Misc macros
USER_FULL_NAME   If defined, overrides the default pw->pw_gecos for getting at the full user name.  Only MSDOS overrides the default.

** Replace, the definition is trivial: SWITCH_ENUM_CAST

** Defines from src/m/*.h and src/s/*.h.  Some of these might not be used in the code anymore, so they can be removed.  The HAVE_* definitions are probably handled by autoconf, so it might be possible to just remove them from src/[sm]/*.h.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
