Parses the given code procedure and adds an anonymous procedure to the name space.

[in] The procedure text to evaluate. The interpretation of this string depends on the scripting language.


[in] Formal parameter names for the procedure. The parameter names must be separated with the appropriate delimiters for the scripting engine. The names should not be enclosed in parentheses.


[in] The name of the named item that gives the context in which the procedure is to be evaluated. If this parameter is NULL, the code is evaluated in the scripting engine's global context.


[in] The context object. This object is reserved for use in a debugging environment, where such a context may be provided by the debugger to represent an active run-time context. If this parameter is NULL, the engine uses pstrItemName to identify the context.


[in] The end-of-procedure delimiter. When pstrCode is parsed from a stream of text, the host typically uses a delimiter, such as two single quotation marks (''), to detect the end of the procedure. This parameter specifies the delimiter that the host used, allowing the scripting engine to provide some conditional, primitive preprocessing (for example, replacing a single quotation mark ['] with two single quotation marks for use as a delimiter). Exactly how (and if) the scripting engine uses this information depends on the scripting engine. Set this parameter to NULL if the host did not use a delimiter to mark the end of the procedure.


[in] Application-defined value that is used for debugging purposes.


[in] Zero-based value that specifies at which line the parsing will begin.


[in] Flags associated with the procedure. Can be a combination of these values.

Constant Value Meaning



Indicates that the code in pstrCode is an expression that represents the return value of the procedure.



Indicates that the this pointer is included in the scope of the procedure.



Indicates that the parents of the this pointer are included in the scope of the procedure.


[out] Returns a dispatch wrapper where the default method is the procedure parsed by this method.
