introspection annotation


A kind of pragma that makes information about the implementation of a program available to the program at run-time, allowing it to do introspection.

For example, gtk-doc defines a GObject Introspection syntax for annotations that give machine readable information about function parameters and return values (transfer none, transfer full). Gtk-Doc annotations are read by g-ir-scanner and put into a "GIR file".
