Using MacApp With C++

By Jörg Langowski, MacTutor Editorial Board

“C++ and MacApp”

Without Eric Carrasco this column couldn’t have been written. Eric is the president of MADA (MacApp Developer’s Association) Europe, and helped me at a crucial point (see below) when I was completely stuck with my example and very close to the “dead-dead-dead”line for this column. So first of all, I’d like to thank you, Eric, for your quick and efficient help.

It seems like using MacApp from C++ is not as trivial as it might have seemed at first sight. Although it has been several months since I got the first - very simple - MacApp ‘nothing’ example to run under C++, our introductions to C++ here have been based on a simpler application model, so that one could understand all the code from beginning to end, something that’s not so easy with MacApp.

So far, there have not been very many C++ examples using MacApp. nothing.cp, which came with the C++ header files, wasn’t too useful an example. Many of the things where object-oriented programming really shines, such as applying methods to lists of objects of unknown type, were just not included. The final version of MacApp 2.0 contains some non-trivial C++ examples, but as I write this, MacApp 2.0 has just been out for some weeks and hasn’t made its way to this side of the Atlantic yet.

Thus I thought it would be a good idea to construct a somewhat more interesting example of a MacApp program in C++. Browsing through examples from Apple’s MacApp developer class, I found one program that contains support for a TextEdit record, a simple drawing tool, a palette, and some color support. I translated the program - originally written in Object Pascal - into C++, with some modifications on the way. The complete program is printed in listings 1-4: 1 is the header file with the class definitions, 2 contains the implementation, 3 the resources and 4 is the MAMake file for building the application.

Since the example is quite long, I won’t explain it in all its details this month, but only point out some specifics that are important for going from Object Pascal to C++. A more detailed explanation of the MacApp part of the story will follow next month.

Translating Object Pascal to C++

At first, everything looks simple: just replace PROCEDURE by pascal void, and the dot by two colons, as in


PROCEDURE TApplication.MainEventLoop;

which becomes

/* 2 */

virtual pascal void TApplication::MainEventLoop(void);

replace FUNCTION (...):INTEGER; by pascal int (); etc furthermore, replace := by =, similarly for the other operators, and change the syntax of for loops, if and case statements.

From the Object Pascal interface file, create a C++ header file this way, and from the Pascal implementation, create the main program (extension .cp). Use an #include directive at the beginning of the program to include the header file. Compile and go.

Some lines from the ‘nothing’ example in Pascal and C++ illustrate this:



 TNothingApplication = OBJECT (TApplication)
 (itsMainFileType: OSType);
 { Initializes the application and globals. }
 TDefaultView    = OBJECT (TView)
 TDefaultView.Draw(area: Rect); OVERRIDE;
 { Draws the view seen in the window. Every
  nonblank view MUST override this method. }

// 4


class TNothingApplication : public TApplication {
public: virtual pascal void 
 INothingApplication(OSType itsMainFileType);  };
class TDefaultView : public TView {
public: virtual pascal void Draw(Rect *area);  };

Unfortunately, life is not that simple, as I could soon find out. Some problems occurred during the translation: a minor one was that C++ arrays (like in C) are always indexed starting at zero. You can’t declare, as in Pascal,


VAR gColorArray: ARRAY[cBlack..cWhite] OF INTEGER;

but have to write (see listing 2)



and later on do appropriate index calculation to access the array at the correct address.

Also, one thing to keep in mind is that a C++ int has no defined size; depending on the system, it can be either 16 or 32 bits long. On the Macintosh, it is 32 bits long, which doesn’t really matter if you are consistent within your own code, but matters a lot when you call Pascal procedures that expect a 16-bit integer. This, of course, is a C++ short. The nice thing about C++ is that the compiler will flag you errors about such type mismatches, and often when a program compiles, it will also execute at least in a semi-reasonable way.

The big problem was a true deficiency of C++: you cannot define procedures inside other procedures. A construction like


procedure a;
 var i,j,k: integer;
 procedure b;
 var a,b,c: real;
 i = k+j;

where b has access to the local variables of a without having passed them explicitly as parameters, is completely illegal in C++.

Second, although it is possible to pass procedure pointers as parameters to a C++ routine, and then execute them from within the routine, one can only pass the pointer, not any parameters with the procedure. That means while you can define in Pascal


procedure p(procedure q(x:real, var y:real));

and later call p(myproc(a,b)), thus defining the parameters that are passed with the procedure used in calling p, in C (or C++) you can only define e.g.

// 9

pascal void p(pascal void (*q)(float x, float *y));

and the type of the procedure pointer passed will be checked on the call; but there is no direct way to pass its parameters.

This means you cannot pass any information to a procedure that is passed as a variable to another procedure; you cannot define it inside another function and use that function’s local variables for parameter passing, neither can you pass parameters directly on the call. The only way would be to go through a global variable; which is very inconvenient.

MacApp makes extensive use of procedure parameters; one example is the method Each(), which applies a procedure to a list of objects of unspecified type. If that procedure expects parameters on its call, we run into the problem described.

This was the point where I was stuck and had to give Eric Carrasco a call. He explained to me that there was a standard way around the problem and that it was described in the MacApp 2.0 final documentation. Which I didn’t have yet, of course. But through network mail, the problem was solved quickly.

The method Each() expects one parameter in its Pascal interface:


procedure TList.Each
 (procedure DoToItem(item: TObject));

which is a procedure that takes any TObject as its parameter. The C++ interface expects two parameters:


virtual pascal void 
 Each(pascal void (*DoToItem) 
 (TObject *item, void *DoToItem_StaticLink), void *DoToItem_StaticLink);

The first parameter is a procedure that now also takes two parameters, one is the pointer to a TObject, and the other a void*, i.e., a generic pointer. The second parameter passed to Each is another void*. This second pointer - in the Each method and in the procedure passed to it as a parameter - is used to pass actual parameters to the procedure.

To illustrate this, look at listing 2 where the DoNeedDiskSpace method of class TTEDocument is implemented. Outside the method, we define a procedure CalcDiskSpace which takes two parameters:


pascal void CalcDiskSpace(TBox *aBox, 
 CalcDiskSpaceStruct *aCalcDiskSpaceStruct)
 (&(aCalcDiskSpaceStruct->myDataForkBytes)); }

where CalcDiskSpaceStruct has been defined in the header file:


struct CalcDiskSpaceStruct {  long myDataForkBytes; };

Now, inside the method, we define


 CalcDiskSpaceStruct aCalcDiskSpaceStruct;

and later use this structure to pass the actual parameter:


 aCalcDiskSpaceStruct.myDataForkBytes = 

CalcDiskSpace must be typecast to the DoToObject type, defined as


typedef pascal void (*DoToObject) 
 (TObject *aObject, void *DoToObject_staticlink);

since otherwise the compiler would give a type mismatch error. ForEachShapeDo just calls the method Each for the object list associated with the document.

This is the way procedure parameters can be passed in C++; slightly more complicated than in Pascal, and I hope this has not confused you too much.

The last thing I’d like to note is that there are lots of debugging utilities built into MacApp; with Object Pascal, you can use writeln to write into the debugger window. I have not found an analogous procedure in C++, printf certainly didn’t work, but all this may be resolved when I receive the final docs. For the moment, the procedure I use is ProgramReport, which writes a string into the debugger window.

Objects should also be able to identify themselves and their instance variables; for this purpose, the methods Fields has been provided. For easy debugging, you should define this method for each class.

I’ll stop here, since this column with the example is getting very long; next month, we’ll look at some of the MacApp-specific details of the program, and also some OOPS Forth again. Till then.
