Curly Initializers

Jancy supports a convenient method of assigning aggregate values with curly initializers:

Classic C-style curly-intializers:

int a [] = { 1, 2, 3 }

It’s OK to skip elements leaving them zero-initialized:

int b [10] = { ,, 3, 4,,, 7 }

You can use both index- and name-based addressing:

struct Point
{
    int m_x;
    int m_y;
    int m_z;
}

Point point = { 10, m_z = 30 };

You can also use curly-initializers in assignment operator after declaration:

point = { , 200, 300 }

…or in a new operator:

Point* point2 = new Point { m_y = 2000, m_z = 3000 }

Have you noticed, there are no ‘;’ terminators after the curly-initializers? In Jancy you can omit those.

Also, when initializing char arrays, you can mix string literals in:

char buffer [] = {
        10,
        20,
        "null-terminated",
        30,
        r"\non\null\terminated\",
        40,
        0x"ab cd ef"
        }
