RESOLVE_OBJECT

RESOLVE_OBJECT

Name


  RESOLVE_OBJECT

Purpose



  The purpose of this function is to resolve object methods in files that have the object
  methods in the same file as the object class definition module (i.e., object__define.pro).
  It is particularly useful in restoring object methods for objects that have been saved and
  are being restored. Restored objects often do not know about their methods unless an object
  of the same object class has been previously compiled in that IDL session.

  ROUTINE_INFO: Not strictly used by the user of the program, but this provides a mechanism by which
                  currently compiled routine names can be checked, so that object code is not being
                  recompiled unnecessarily. It is actually used internally in the code in a sort of
                  recursive approach to handling object superclasses.
