7.38 __mcall_offsetof_vbase(D, f)

Returns the negative offset from the value of the vtable pointer of the vtable slot that holds the base offset (from the beginning of a D object to the start of the base that f is defined in).

Where D is a class type and f is a nonstatic member function defined in a virtual base class of D, in other words __mcall_is_in_vbase(D,f) returns {TRUE}.

The base offset is the this adjustment necessary when making a call to f with a pointer to a D.


The offset returns a positive number that then has to be subtracted from the value of the vtable pointer.
