Returns an array of the protocols adopted by a protocol.


func protocol_copyProtocolList(_ proto: Protocol, _ outCount: UnsafeMutablePointer<UInt32>?) -> AutoreleasingUnsafeMutablePointer<Protocol>?



A protocol.


Upon return, contains the number of elements in the returned array.

Return Value

A C array of protocols adopted by proto. The array contains *outCount pointers followed by a NULL terminator. You must free the array with free().

If the protocol declares no properties, NULL is returned and *outCount is 0.
