Inline Code

What Does Inline Code Mean?

Inline code refers to any lines of code that are added in the body of a program. It can be any type of code written in any programming language. The inline code executes independently and is usually executed under some condition by the primary program.


Techopedia Explains Inline Code

Inline code is primarily used to provide a functionality external to the primary program to which it is added. The inline code is executed based on a certain condition or as needed. Typically, inline code is embedded within the loop of the program body rather than being called as a separate function. So whenever the primary program is executed, the inline code also functions if the corresponding state or condition is as specified.
