Constant Clauses

Constant clauses are used to override the values of constants specified in header files (i.e. "#define MAXINT 27"). The "value:" option, which is the only one supported, specifies a Dylan literal which will be taken as the value of the named constant. A typical use might be:

define interface
   #include "const.h";
   constant "MAXINT" => $maximum-fixed-integer,
      value: 9999999;
end interface;
