CompilerCallback

CompilerCallback["name"]

is a function that, if defined in a compiler environment, is automatically called by the Wolfram Compiler.

Details

  • The following callbacks are supported with the specified types:
  • "OnFree"{t}->"Null"called on memory-managed objects with the type t when they are about to be freed
    "SerializeToExpression"{t}->"InertExpression"called to convert objects of type t to expressions when interfacing between compiled and interpreted code
    "DeserializeFromExpression"{"InertExpression"}->tcalled to convert expressions to objects of type t when interfacing between compiled and interpreted code
    "DeserializableFromExpressionQ"{"InertExpression","TypeSpecifier"::[t]}->"Boolean"called to check whether an expression is in a form that can be deserialized as an object with type t
  • CompilerCallback["OnFree"] can be defined to specify custom deconstructors for memory-managed types that require manual deconstruction.
  • Expression serialization callbacks can be defined to specify how types are converted to and from expressions when interfacing between compiled and interpreted code.

Basic Examples  (1)

Declare a memory-managed type and a callback function to be executed when it is freed:

Compile a function that creates the type and then allows it to be freed:

Run the compiled function, with the callback executing when the object goes out of scope:

Scope  (1)

CompilerCallback can be used to specify how compiled types are converted to and from expressions. Define a product type:

Define a callback function to convert myProduct objects into expressions of the form f[{f1},f2]:

Define a callback function to identify when an expression is in the correct form to be converted to a myProduct object:

Define a callback function to convert an expression to a myProduct object:

Compile a function that accepts and returns a myProduct object, converting it to and from an expression:

Expressions that do not have the correct form will not be converted:

Properties & Relations  (1)

CompiledExpressionDeclaration automatically defines expression serialization callbacks. Declare a compiled expression type for expressions of the form f[_Real,_Integer]:

Compile a function that accepts and returns this type, converting it to and from an expression:

Expressions that do not have the correct form will not be converted:
