5.1.2 API

Function: void lw6_resize_callback (lw6gui_video_mode_t * video_mode)

video_mode: the new video mode

This callback is here because gfx needs to update the config when the screen is resized. But... we did not want to make gfx depend on cfg "directly". It’s cleaner to pass parameters with Scheme, in the long run, it should make things easier. So this callback is the solution. Another side effect is that this way there’s a tangible obvious trace of this updating of config status by the gfx module. Seeing it sticking out like a thumb isn’t a bad thing.

Return value: none

Function: void lw6_release ()

Functions which will call quit, free, destroy on whatever smob object that has threads and/or requires hardware ressources. This is to be called before the Guile interpreter ends. This is because when it garbage collects objects at the end of the program, it has no idea of what order to use when freeing objects. So if an object which uses another one in a thread is freed after the other is freed, you get a (rather unexplainabled if not warned) segfault.

Return value: none

Function: void lw6_exit ()

Sends a quit message and displays a newline.

Return value: none

Function: int lw6_init_global (int argc, const char * [] argv)

argc: number of args as passed to main

argv: array of strings as passed to main

Initializes global values to their defaults.

Return value: 1 on success, 0 if failed

Function: void lw6_quit_global ()

Frees global values. Will also garbage collect objects in case Guile failed to do it perfectly (or we failed to tell Guile how to do it). Important note: this function can only be called once in a program, usually at the end. If called twice, and typically, if *any* Guile code is run after it, the risk is that Guile code does not find objects that it should, or said differently, Guile might try to manipulate stuff that has been deleted without its being warned about it. In practice, libGC way of doing thing is usually a good thing, since it will from time to time keep objects in memory that shouldn’t, so there’s no point in changing that, but as we are pedantic in LW6 about the fact that everything at program exit must be perfectly freed, the problem arises. So well, only call this once at the end, else problem will show up, the usual form is a segfault on the delete callback, as when Guile finally runs its GC, the object does not exist any more.

Return value: none.

Function: int lw6_main (int argc, const char * [] argv)

argc: the argc parameter of the main function, that is, the number of command-line args.

argv: the argv parameter of the main function, that is, an array containing pointers on command-line args.

This function is directly called by main. This means by linking against libliquidwar6 and calling it, you would have a program that is almost exactly the "official" upstream liquidwar6 binary, except you can tweak it and have all the power to call whatever other functions you like, embed it. In short, everything the binary does, you can do it in your own binarn, by linking against the library and calling this function.

Return value: 1 if success, zero if failure. Note that this is the "standard" C / liquidwar6 way to proceed, but your main function should return 0 if success, else an error code. Typical use is "return !lw6_main(argc, argv);".

Function: int lw6_process_non_run_options (int argc, const char * [] argv, int * run_game)

argc: the number of command-line args, as passed to main

argv: an array of strings containing command-line args, as passed to main

run_game: a pointer to a boolean which will contain true (1) if the game must be launched, or false (0) if the option is such that game must be skipped. Example: –copyright, –help, ...

Return value: non-zero if success, 0 if error. The error can be, for instance, the test suite returning "no, tests were not OK".
