101) LinkDef.h must be the last argument on the rootcling command line.
112) Note that the LinkDef file name must contain the string:
12 LinkDef.h, Linkdef.h or linkdef.h, i.e. NA49_LinkDef.h.
14Before specifying the first header file one can also add include
15file directories to be searched and preprocessor defines, like:
16 -I$MYPROJECT/include -DDebug=1
18NOTA BENE: the dictionaries that will be used within the same project must
19have unique names
23The (optional) file LinkDef.h looks like:
25#ifdef __CLING__
27#pragma link off all globals;
28#pragma link off all classes;
29#pragma link off all functions;
31#pragma link C++ class TAxis;
32#pragma link C++ class TAttAxis-;
33#pragma link C++ class TArrayC-!;
34#pragma link C++ class AliEvent+;
36#pragma link C++ function StrDup;
37#pragma link C++ function operator+(const TString&,const TString&);
39#pragma link C++ global gROOT;
40#pragma link C++ global gEnv;
42#pragma link C++ enum EMessageTypes;
46This file tells rootcling which classes will be persisted on disk and what
47entities will trigger automatic load of the shared library which contains
48it. A trailing - in the class name tells rootcling to not generate the
49Streamer() method. This is necessary for those classes that need a
50customized Streamer() method. A trailing ! in the class name tells rootcling
51to not generate the operator>>(TBuffer &b, MyClass *&obj) function. This is
52necessary to be able to write pointers to objects of classes not inheriting
53from TObject. See for an example the source of the TArrayF class.
54If the class contains a ClassDef macro, a trailing + in the class
55name tells rootcling to generate an automatic Streamer(), i.e. a
56streamer that let ROOT do automatic schema evolution. Otherwise, a
57trailing + in the class name tells rootcling to generate a ShowMember
58function and a Shadow Class. The + option is mutually exclusive with
59the - option. For legacy reasons it is not yet the default.
60When the linkdef file is not specified a default version exporting
61the classes with the names equal to the include files minus the .h
62is generated.
64The default constructor used by the ROOT I/O can be customized by
65using the rootcling pragma:
66 #pragma link C++ ioctortype UserClass;
67For example, with this pragma and a class named MyClass,
68this method will called the first of the following 3
69constructors which exists and is public:
70 MyClass(UserClass*);
71 MyClass(TRootIOCtor*);
72 MyClass(); // Or a constructor with all its arguments defaulted.
74When more than one pragma ioctortype is used, the first seen has
75priority. For example with:
76 #pragma link C++ ioctortype UserClass1;
77 #pragma link C++ ioctortype UserClass2;
79ROOT considers the constructors in this order:
80 MyClass(UserClass1*);
81 MyClass(UserClass2*);
82 MyClass(TRootIOCtor*);
83 MyClass(); // Or a constructor with all its arguments defaulted.
