#include <google/protobuf/compiler/objectivec/objectivec_generator.h>
namespace google::protobuf::compiler::objectivec

Generates ObjectiveC code for a given .proto file.

class ObjectiveCGenerator: public CodeGenerator

#include <google/protobuf/compiler/objectivec/objectivec_generator.h>
namespace google::protobuf::compiler::objectivec

CodeGenerator implementation which generates a ObjectiveC source file and header.

If you create your own protocol compiler binary and you want it to support ObjectiveC output, you can do so by registering an instance of this CodeGenerator with the CommandLineInterface in your main() function.

virtual bool ObjectiveCGenerator::HasGenerateAll() const

This is no longer used, but this class is part of the opensource protobuf library, so it has to remain to keep vtables the same for the current version of the library.

When protobufs does a api breaking change, the method can be removed.


virtual bool ObjectiveCGenerator::Generate(
        const FileDescriptor * file,
        const string & parameter,
        GeneratorContext * generator_context,
        string * error) const

Generates code for the given proto file, generating one or more files in the given output directory.

A parameter to be passed to the generator can be specified on the command line. This is intended to be used to pass generator specific parameters. It is empty if no parameter was given. ParseGeneratorParameter (below), can be used to accept multiple parameters within the single parameter command line flag.

Returns true if successful. Otherwise, sets *error to a description of the problem (e.g. "invalid parameter") and returns false.


virtual bool ObjectiveCGenerator::GenerateAll(
        const vector< const FileDescriptor * > & files,
        const string & parameter,
        GeneratorContext * generator_context,
        string * error) const

Generates code for all given proto files.

WARNING: The canonical code generator design produces one or two output files per input .proto file, and we do not wish to encourage alternate designs.

A parameter is given as passed on the command line, as in |Generate()| above.

Returns true if successful. Otherwise, sets *error to a description of the problem (e.g. "invalid parameter") and returns false.
