Termination

It is questionable whether a library should be able to terminate an application. Any API function can signal an error (ex.: cannot allocate memory), so the engine use the termination approach with this port function.

/**
 * Signal the port that jerry experienced a fatal failure from which it cannot
 * recover.
 *
 * @param code gives the cause of the error.
 *
 * Note: jerry expects the function not to return.
 *
 * Example: a libc-based port may implement this with exit() or abort(), or both.

void jerry_port_fatal (jerry_fatal_code_t code);

Error codes

typedef enum

  ERR_OUT_OF_MEMORY = 10,
  ERR_SYSCALL = 11,
  ERR_REF_COUNT_LIMIT = 12,
  ERR_FAILED_INTERNAL_ASSERTION = 120
} jerry_fatal_code_t;

I/O

These are the only I/O functions jerry calls.

/**
 * Print a string to the console. The function should implement a printf-like
 * interface, where the first argument specifies a format string on how to
 * stringify the rest of the parameter list.
 *
 * This function is only called with strings coming from the executed ECMAScript
 * wanting to print something as the result of its normal operation.
 *
 * It should be the port that decides what a "console" is.
 *
 * Example: a libc-based port may implement this with vprintf().

 * where the most serious levels come first.

 * the console, or saved to a database or to a file.
