Declare [Function|Process] [<returntype>] <name>([<parameters>])
- <private variables>
- <public variables>
Declare is a reserved word used to declare a process or function before its actual code. This can be useful if the function or process needs to be known before it is actually defined, like when the function returns something other than an int or when the publics of the process need to be accessed before the definition. By default, the returntype of a process or function is an int.
When using this statement, a few things can be defined about the process/function:
- If it's a process or function
- Its returntype
- The parameters of the process or function
- The public variables of the process or function
- The private variables of the process or function
The first three are defined when using the statement Declare, while the last two are defined within the Declare block.
Note that this functionality is only available in Fenix 0.89 and up. Also before version 0.93, defining the returntype as an int, the compiler would nag. This is worked around by removing the int statement.
