preprocessFile filename

Operand types

filename: String

Type of returned value

Description

Returns preprocessed content of given file.
Preprocessor is C-like, supports comments using // or /* and */ and macros defined with #define.

Usually used in conjunction with compile, in order to create a function from an sqf script file.

Note that any error message generated by the function will not give file-name or line number information. If using ArmA, it is therefore preferable to always use preprocessFileLineNumbers instead of this command.

Used In

OFP/ArmA

Example

// Pre-compile a function.
myFunction = compile preprocessFile "myFunction.sqf";

// Call the function later.
_result = [_param1, _param2, _param3] call myFunction;
