PtWorkProcF_t, PtWorkProc_t

Type for defining a work procedure function


typedef int PtWorkProcF_t( void *);
typedef PtWorkProcF_t *PtWorkProc_t;


These data types define pointers to work procedures. The PtWorkProcF_t type is the function type that the PtWorkProc_t type points to. This allows you to do something like this:

PtWorkProcF_t my_work_proc;

int my_work_proc( void *data ) {

The compiler should detect any inconsistencies between the two declarations of my_work_proc() and give you an error (which is better than a “pointer mismatch” warning on the call to PtAppAddWorkProc()).
