◆ clang_annotateTokens()

CINDEX_LINKAGE void clang_annotateTokens ( CXTranslationUnit  TU,
CXToken Tokens,
unsigned  NumTokens,
CXCursor Cursors 
)

Annotate the given set of tokens by providing cursors for each token that can be mapped to a specific entity within the abstract syntax tree.

This token-annotation routine is equivalent to invoking clang_getCursor() for the source locations of each of the tokens. The cursors provided are filtered, so that only those cursors that have a direct correspondence to the token are accepted. For example, given a function call f(x), clang_getCursor() would provide the following cursors:

  • when the cursor is over the 'f', a DeclRefExpr cursor referring to 'f'.
  • when the cursor is over the '(' or the ')', a CallExpr referring to 'f'.
  • when the cursor is over the 'x', a DeclRefExpr cursor referring to 'x'.

Only the first and last of these cursors will occur within the annotate, since the tokens "f" and "x' directly refer to a function and a variable, respectively, but the parentheses are just a small part of the full syntax of the function call expression, which is not provided as an annotation.

Parameters
TUthe translation unit that owns the given tokens.
Tokensthe set of tokens to annotate.
NumTokensthe number of tokens in Tokens.
Cursorsan array of NumTokens cursors, whose contents will be replaced with the cursors corresponding to each token.

◆ clang_disposeTokens()

CINDEX_LINKAGE void clang_disposeTokens ( CXTranslationUnit  TU,
CXToken Tokens,
unsigned  NumTokens 
)

Free the given set of tokens.

◆ clang_getTokenExtent()

CINDEX_LINKAGE CXSourceRange clang_getTokenExtent ( CXTranslationUnit  ,
CXToken   
)

Retrieve a source range that covers the given token.

◆ clang_getTokenKind()

CINDEX_LINKAGE CXTokenKind clang_getTokenKind ( CXToken  )

Determine the kind of the given token.

◆ clang_getTokenLocation()

CINDEX_LINKAGE CXSourceLocation clang_getTokenLocation ( CXTranslationUnit  ,
CXToken   
)

Retrieve the source location of the given token.

◆ clang_getTokenSpelling()

CINDEX_LINKAGE CXString clang_getTokenSpelling ( CXTranslationUnit  ,
CXToken   
)

Determine the spelling of the given token.

The spelling of a token is the textual representation of that token, e.g., the text of an identifier or keyword.

◆ clang_tokenize()

CINDEX_LINKAGE void clang_tokenize ( CXTranslationUnit  TU,
CXSourceRange  Range,
CXToken **  Tokens,
unsigned *  NumTokens 
)

Tokenize the source code described by the given range into raw lexical tokens.

Parameters
TUthe translation unit whose text is being tokenized.
Rangethe source range in which text should be tokenized. All of the tokens produced by tokenization will fall within this source range,
Tokensthis pointer will be set to point to the array of tokens that occur within the given source range. The returned pointer must be freed with clang_disposeTokens() before the translation unit is destroyed.
NumTokenswill be set to the number of tokens in the *Tokens array.
