Declare Statement

About

There are two sections used to create the syntax for Declare Statements. These define the syntax of the list of variable names (being declared) and the syntax of the declaration itself.

Java Example
[Declare Name]
Separator = ,{space}
Text = {name} | ~array
= {name} = new {Type}[{Size}] | array
[Declare]
Text = {Type} {Variables}; | ~array
= {Type}[] {Variables}; | array

Declare Name Section

About

This section is used to generate a list of variable names that will be used, later, in the [Declare] section.

Separator Key

The Separator defines the text that will be inserted between the list of variable names.

Fields
None
Flags
None

Text Key

The text key is used to generate the syntax of the each item in the list. The {size} variable contains a valid value if the Declare Statement is an array. Use the 'array' flag to use the proper syntax.

Fields Contents
{type} The variable's data type
{name} Name of the variable.
{size} Size of the array

The first and last flags can be used if the syntax differs for the first or last items in the list.

Flags When True
array The declaration is an array
first The variable is the first item in the list.
last The variable is the last item in the list.
