FFI::cast

(PHP 7 >= 7.4.0)

FFI::castPerforms a C type cast

Beschreibung

public static FFI::cast ( mixed $type , FFI\CData &$ptr ) : FFI\CData
public FFI::cast ( mixed $type , FFI\CData &$ptr ) : FFI\CData

FFI::cast() creates a new FFI\CData object, that references the same C data structure, but is associated with a different type. The resulting object does not own the C data, and the source ptr must survive the result. The C type may be specified as a string with any valid C type declaration or as FFI\CType object, created before. If this method is called statically, it must only use predefined C type names (e.g. int, char, etc.); if the method is called as instance method, any type declared for the instance is allowed.

Parameter-Liste

type

A valid C declaration as string, or an instance of FFI\CType which has already been created.

ptr

The handle of the pointer to a C data structure.

R├╝ckgabewerte

Returns the freshly created FFI\CData object.
