For C the symbolic names generated by a ‘pragma foreign_export_enum’ must form valid C identifiers. These identifiers are used as the names of preprocessor macros. The body of each of these macros expands to a value that is identical to that of the constructor to which the symbolic name corresponds in the mapping established by the ‘pragma foreign_export_enum’ declaration.
As noted in the C data passing conventions, the type of these values is ‘MR_Word’.
The default mapping used by ‘pragma foreign_export_enum’
declarations for C is to use the Mercury constructor name as the
base of the symbolic name. For example, the symbolic name for
the Mercury constructor ‘foo’ would be
