NAME ^

Devel::TypeCheck::Environment - class for managing the type environment in B::TypeCheck

SYNOPSIS ^

Objects of this type are instantiated with the <new> method.

DESCRIPTION ^

The data structure is essentially a linked list from Mu at the head of the list to terminal or variable types at the end. Thus, most of the functions defined here support that by relaying the request to the subtype member (the next link in the linked list) instead of actually doing anything themselves.

new

Create a new type environment.

fresh

Create a new type variable in the context of the environment. This is so we can find unbound type variables later.

fresh

Return a fully qualified incomplete Kappa instance

freshEta

Return a fully qualified incomplete Eta instance

freshNu

Return a fully qualified incomplete Nu instance

freshRho

Return a fully qualified incomplete Rho instance

freshUpsilon

Return a fuly qualified incomplete Upsilon instance

freshZeta

Return a fully qualified incomplete Zeta instance

genRho

Encapsulate something in a fully qualified reference

genEta

Encapsulate something in a fully qualified glob

genOmicron

Generate a fully quialified incomplete Omicron instance.

genOmicron($subtype)

Generate a fully qualified Omicron instance with the given type as the homogeneous type.

genOmicronTuple(@types)

Create a new tuple-type list given a list of types.

genChi

Generate a fully qualified incomplete Chi instance

genChi($subtype)

Generate a homogeneous Chi type with the given subtype as the homogeneous type.

genZeta($params, $return)

Generate a Zeta type with the given params and return value.

unify($t1, $t2)

Unify the two given types. If unsuccessful, this returns undef.

find($elt)

Find the representative element of the set that <$elt> belongs to. For fully qualified types that end in a terminal, this is themselves.

BUGS ^

This version is specific to Perl 5.8.1. It may work with other versions that have the same opcode list and structure, but this is entirely untested. It definitely will not work if those parameters change.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-devel-typecheck at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=Devel-TypeCheck. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.
