process_base Methods

Method Description
process_base(name_stack &in) Initialises ``jmp'', ``sequence_nr'', and ``timeout_jmp'' to 0 and stores the instance name of the process into ``iname''.
virtual bool execute() The function to execute the process. It returns true if the process resumed. Note, the return value is only relevant if a process is sensitive on an conditional expression. The condition is tested during process execution. If the condition evaluates to true then the process resumes and returns true. Otherwise, if the condition evaluates to false then the process suspends immediately returning false.

The function is overloaded by the derived process classes.
