typeMachPort

For specifying a Mach port.

Declaration

enum {
   typeMachPort = 'port'
};

Overview

You might use this constant as part of sending an Apple event to an arbitrary Mach port. Your code for creating the descriptor might look like the following:

mach_port_t port = lookupPortForTarget(); // User routine to get  port.
// Now create a descriptor with it:
AECreateDesc(typeMachPort, &port, sizeof(port), &desc);

Actually sending an Apple event to a Mach port is an advanced technique and is not documented here.
