pragma


© October 2004 Tony Lawrence

A directive to a compiler or interpreter that tells it something about how it should do its job. It's not part of your program per se, though it may affect the final result. A pragma might, for instance, tell the compiler to optimize for speed rather than size, or might enforce predeclaration of variables (Perl's "use strict").
