QIDL Compiler Help

This section describes how to run the qidl compiler.

QIDL, the Qualcomm version of the Object Management Group's Interface Definition Language (OMG IDL), is used to define interfaces that are independent of a specific programming language. The qidl compiler is a command line tool that takes an IDL file as input and generates output in different implementation languages. The compiler is currently able to generate C and C++ stub and skeleton code or Component Information Files (CIFs). The default output is C and C++ code.

For information on QIDL and the mapping of IDL structures to C and C++, see the QIDL Reference.

Note: This tool is deprecated as of Brew MP 1.0.4 and newer. The QIDLC Compiler is the replacement for this tool.
