Type Specific Interfaces

Base Types Interface

The type specific operations provided by base types cover the reading and writing of values.

Vector Data Structure Interface

Numeric vectors provide two kinds of type specific operations. On the one hand there are methods to manage the vectors, such as setting the length and the default value and on the other hand there are methods to use vectors as values i.e., to set and get the vector elements.

Enumeration Data Structure Operations

The EnumType is designed to satisfy the requirements of C++ style enumerations. In this way an Enumeration object can be used to describe an enumeration, i.e. its elements, as well as holding its value, which must be in the range described by its elements.

Operations for Composite Data Structures

Composite data structures use a handler class called DataStructMember for member management.
