NAME

clonep() - determine whether or not a given variable points to a cloned
object

SYNOPSIS

int clonep( void | mixed arg );

DESCRIPTION

Returns true (1) iff the argument is objectp() and the O_CLONE flag  is
set.   The  driver  sets the O_CLONE flag for those objects created via
new(3) (clone_object(3)).  The clonep() efun will not return true  when
called  on  objects that are the master copy (those that are loaded via
call_other(3)).  Note that if clonep() returns true,  then  file_name()
will   return   a  string  containing  a  '#'.   clonep()  defaults  to
this_object().
