Public Functions

OptionalType(OptionalType const&)
void operator=(OptionalType const&)
Value *defaultValue(llvm::BasicBlock *block)

Codegens the default value of this type. Usually this is just what you’d expect: zero for integral types, null for pointer and reference types, recursively defined for aggregate types.


value of the default value

  • block: where to codegen the default value

void initFields()

Performs a one-time initialization of this type’s fields.

void initOps()

Performs a one-time initialization of this type’s methods, including magic methods.

bool isAtomic() const

Returns whether this type is “atomic”. A type is defined to be atomic if its LLVM representation contains no pointers to heap allocated data. This is used internally by the GC, as we can allocate “atomic” and “non-atomic” blocks separately. Atomic blocks do not need to be scanned when searching for pointers.

bool is(Type *type) const

Checks whether this type “is” another type.

unsigned numBaseTypes() const

Returns the number of “base types” of this type. E.g., int.numBaseTypes() would return 0, whereas array[str].numBaseTypes() would return 1, and (int,float,str).numBaseTypes() would return 3.

types::Type *getBaseType(unsigned idx) const

Obtain the base type at index idx. idx should be less than numBaseTypes().

Type *getLLVMType(llvm::LLVMContext &context) const

Returns the LLVM type corresponding to this type.

size_t size(llvm::Module *module) const

Returns the size (in bytes) of the LLVM type corresponding to this type.

types::OptionalType *asOpt()

Returns this type as an optional type, or null if it isn’t an optional type. This is basically for overriding C++’s RTTI/dynamic_cast so that generic types can be converted to their actual types.

Value *make(llvm::Value *val, llvm::BasicBlock *block)
Value *has(llvm::Value *self, llvm::BasicBlock *block)
Value *val(llvm::Value *self, llvm::BasicBlock *block)
types::OptionalType *clone(Generic *ref)

Clones this type and all of its methods. ref is used internally to keep track of cloned objects, and to make sure we don’t clone certain objects twice.


cloned type

  • ref: generic object that is being cloned
