c-faq review and a chinese translation (1.11) February 15, 2007

Posted by TSAI HONG-BIN in Programming.

please refer to http://c-faq.com/decl/extern.html for the origin

1.11 What does extern mean in a function declaration?

is significant only with data declarations. In function declarations, it can be used as a stylistic hint to indicate that the function’s definition is probably in another source file, but there is no formal difference between

extern int f();


int f();

See also question 1.10.

函式宣告時的 extern 代表什麼意思?

extern 只有在資料宣告時有意義。在函式宣告時,它可以拿來當作字面上的提示,表示該函式的可能定義在其他源碼,但其實

extern int f();

int f();
