INTRO \- The SDL C++ Language Binding Generator
This is the SDL C++ Language Binding Generator. It connects
to a Shore server and generates a language binding for
the specified module. The binding is sent to standard output.
In normal usage, standard output is redirected to a

comprises several things:
- A set of classes embodied in the macro
(which are used as if they constituted a C++ template REF<T>,
but you must remember to use parentheses rather than angle braces).
The declaration and the implementation of REF(T) are generated by
- Class declarations
- for each
SDL interface in your module.
- Class declarations and implementations
- for the types of certain attributes:
sets and bags, strings, and indexes.
- Method implementations
- of all class methods
except those explicitly defined in the class's SDL interface description.
You must provide C++ implementation for each method
that is given in an SDL Interface.
The implementation of the methods must be given in a
C++ source file; it cannot be given in the SDL interface
description; SDL does not cope with inline method definitions
in class declarations.
The Shore Server process,
