Member Function Documentation

void setupArguments (PricingEngine::arguments *) const [virtual]

When a derived argument structure is defined for an instrument, this method should be overridden to fill it. This is mandatory in case a pricing engine is used.

Reimplemented from Instrument.

void fetchResults (const PricingEngine::results * r) const [virtual]

When a derived result structure is defined for an instrument, this method should be overridden to read from it. This is mandatory in case a pricing engine is used.

Reimplemented from Instrument.

void setupExpired () const [protected, virtual]

This method must leave the instrument in a consistent state when the expiration condition is met.

Reimplemented from Instrument.
