Detailed Description

This class is used as a namespace to group several global properties of Panda.

Application developers can use this class to query the runtime version or capabilities of the current Panda environment.

PandaSystem::PandaSystem ( ) [protected]

Don't try to construct a PandaSystem object; there is only one of these, and it constructs itself.

Use get_global_ptr() to get a pointer to the one PandaSystem.

Member Function Documentation

void PandaSystem::add_system ( const string &  system)

Intended for use by each subsystem to register itself at startup.

Definition at line 392 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

Referenced by PandaSystem().

string PandaSystem::get_build_date ( ) [static]

Returns a string representing the date and time at which this version of Panda (or at least dtool) was compiled, if available.

Definition at line 291 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_compiler ( ) [static]

Returns a string representing the compiler that was used to generate this version of Panda, if it is available, or "unknown" if it is not.

Definition at line 251 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_distributor ( ) [static]

Returns the string defined by the distributor of this version of Panda, or "homebuilt" if this version was built directly from the sources by the end-user.

This is a completely arbitrary string.

Definition at line 239 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

PandaSystem * PandaSystem::get_global_ptr ( ) [static]

Returns the global PandaSystem object.

int PandaSystem::get_major_version ( ) [static]

Returns the major version number of the current version of Panda.

This is the first number of the dotted triple returned by get_version_string(). It changes very rarely.

Definition at line 176 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

int PandaSystem::get_minor_version ( ) [static]

Returns the minor version number of the current version of Panda.

This is the second number of the dotted triple returned by get_version_string(). It changes with each release that introduces new features.

Definition at line 190 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

int PandaSystem::get_num_systems ( ) const

Returns the number of Panda subsystems that have registered themselves.

This can be used with get_system() to iterate through the entire list of available Panda subsystems.

Definition at line 332 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_p3d_coreapi_version_string ( ) [static]

Returns the current version of Panda's Core API, expressed as a string of dot-delimited integers.

There are usually four integers in this version, but this is not guaranteed.

The Core API is used during the runtime (plugin) environment only. This may be the empty string if the current version of Panda is not built to provide a particular Core API, which will be the normal case in a development SDK. However, you should not use this method to determine whether you are running in a runtime environment or not.

Definition at line 159 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_package_host_url ( ) [static]

Returns the URL of the download server that provides the Panda3D distributable package currently running.

This can be used, along with the get_package_version_string(), to uniquely identify the running version of Panda among distributable Panda versions.

See get_package_version_string() for more information.

This string is set explicitly at compilation time. Normally, it should be set to a nonempty string only when building a Panda3D package for distribution.

Definition at line 134 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

References get_global_ptr().

string PandaSystem::get_package_version_string ( ) [static]

Returns the version of the Panda3D distributable package that provides this build of Panda.

When the currently-executing version of Panda was loaded from a distributable package, such as via the browser plugin, then this string will be nonempty and will contain the corresponding version string. You can build applications that use this particular version of Panda by requesting it in the pdef file, using "panda3d", this version string, and the download host provided by get_package_host_url().

If this string is empty, then the currently-executing Panda was built independently, and is not part of a distributable package.

This string is set explicitly at compilation time. Normally, it should be set to a nonempty string only when building a Panda3D package for distribution.

Definition at line 109 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

References get_global_ptr().

string PandaSystem::get_platform ( ) [static]

Returns a string representing the runtime platform that we are currently running on.

This will be something like "win32" or "osx.i386" or "linux.amd64".

Definition at line 304 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

int PandaSystem::get_sequence_version ( ) [static]

Returns the sequence version number of the current version of Panda.

This is the third number of the dotted triple returned by get_version_string(). It changes with bugfix updates and very minor feature updates.

Definition at line 204 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_system ( int  n) const

Returns the nth Panda subsystem that has registered itself.

This list will be sorted in alphabetical order.

Definition at line 344 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_system_tag ( const string &  system,
const string &  tag 
) const

Returns the value associated with the indicated tag for the given system.

This provides a standard way to query each subsystem's advertised capabilities. The set of tags and values are per-system and implementation-defined.

The return value is the empty string if the indicated system is undefined or if does not define the indicated tag.

Definition at line 370 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

string PandaSystem::get_version_string ( ) [static]

Returns the current version of Panda, expressed as a string, e.g.

"1.0.0". The string will end in the letter "c" if this build does not represent an official version.

Definition at line 81 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

bool PandaSystem::has_system ( const string &  system) const

Returns true if the current version of Panda claims to have the indicated subsystem installed, false otherwise.

The set of available subsystems is implementation defined.

Definition at line 317 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

bool PandaSystem::heap_trim ( size_t  pad)

Attempts to release memory back to the system, if possible.

The pad argument is the minimum amount of unused memory to keep in the heap (against future allocations). Any memory above that may be released to the system, reducing the memory size of this process. There is no guarantee that any memory may be released.

Returns true if any memory was actually released, false otherwise.

Definition at line 433 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

References MemoryHook::heap_trim().

bool PandaSystem::is_official_version ( ) [static]

Returns true if current version of Panda claims to be an "official" version, that is, one that was compiled by an official distributor of Panda using a specific version of the panda source tree.

If this is true, there will not be a "c" at the end of the version string returned by get_version_string().

Note that we must take the distributor's word for it here.

Definition at line 222 of file pandaSystem.cxx.

void PandaSystem::set_system_tag ( const string &  system,
const string &  tag,
const string &  value 
)

Intended for use by each subsystem to register its set of capabilities at startup.
