PRIVATE


Specifies a procedure having internal linkage

Syntax:
Private Sub procedure_name [Cdecl|Stdcall|Pascal] [Overload] [Alias "external_name"] [([parameter_list])] [Constructor [priority]] [Static] [Export]
..procedure body..
End Sub

Private Function procedure_name [Cdecl|Stdcall|Pascal] [Overload] [Alias "external_name"] [([parameter_list])] [ byref ] as return_type [Static] [Export]
..procedure body..
End Function

Description:
In procedure definitions (forbidden at declaration line level), Private specifies that a procedure has internal linkage, meaning its name is not visible to external modules.
Therefore among the compiled modules, two procedures with the same identifier, but defined inside different modules, may exist if both are Private.

The Option Private statement allows procedures to be defined with internal linkage by default.

Examples:
'e.g.

Private Sub i_am_private
End Sub

Sub i_am_public
End Sub
