NAME ^

src/pmc/namespace.pmc - NameSpace PMC

DESCRIPTION ^

These are the vtable functions for the namespace PMC.

Functions

static void add_to_class(PARROT_INTERP, Parrot_NameSpace_attributes *nsinfo, PMC *classobj, STRING *key, PMC *value)

Add the method Sub value with name key to the classobj.

static int ns_insert_sub_keyed_str(PARROT_INTERP, PMC *self, STRING *key, PMC *value)

Add the Sub PMC value to the namespace. If it's a vtable, add it as a vtable to the corresponding Class (or store it locally for the Class to fetch later). If it's a method, do the same.

static int maybe_add_sub_to_namespace(PARROT_INTERP, PMC *SELF, STRING *key, PMC *value)

If the item value is a non-null Sub PMC (but not a subclass), add it to the namespace and any associated Class PMC (if it's a method or vtable).

static void add_native_to_namespace(PARROT_INTERP, PMC *SELF, STRING *key, PMC *value)

Add an NCI or NativePCCMethod PMC to the namespace. The PMC value must be non-null. If it's flagged as a method (usually for NativePCCMethod PMCs) add it to the Class as well.

static void add_multi_to_namespace(PARROT_INTERP, PMC *SELF, STRING *key, PMC *value)

If PMC value is a MultiSub, add it to the namespace and possibly the associated class.

void init()

Initialize a NameSpace PMC.

void mark()

Marks the namespace as live.

PMC *get_class()

Returns the class or role PMC that is associated with this namespace.

void set_pmc_keyed_str(STRING *key, PMC *value)

Sets *value as the namespace item for *key. This is part of the raw interface. If the PMC value is exactly a NameSpace, SELF will be set as the parent of that namespace and the name key of value is stored too.

void set_pmc_keyed(PMC *key, PMC *value)

If key is a simple key, it works like above. If key is an array of strings or a chained key, add all components to the namespace.

PMC *get_pmc_keyed(PMC *key)

Return the given namespace or PMCNULL. key is either an array of strings, or a possibly nested key.

PMC *get_pmc_keyed_str(STRING *key)

Return the given namespace item or PMCNULL. If the named item is either a NameSpace or a var, the NameSpace is returned.

PMC *get_pmc_keyed_int(INTVAL key)

Return a Sub representing an overridden vtable entry or PMCNULL. This is not really a public API.

void *get_pointer_keyed_str(STRING *key)

Return the given namepace item or PMCNULL, keyed by name.

void *get_pointer_keyed(PMC *key)

Return the given namespace item or PMCNULL. If the named item is either a NameSpace or a var, the var is returned.

TT #1472 TOTAL KLUDGE. ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK.

STRING *get_string()

Return the name of this namespace part.

PMC *inspect_str(STRING *what)

Provides introspection of a specific piece of information about the namespace. The available information is:

class

The class object associated with the namespace, if any.

methods

A temporary cache of methods (destroyed when class object is created). Hash keyed on method name, value is an invokable PMC. Includes methods composed in from roles.

vtable_overrides

A temporary cache of vtable overrides (destroyed when class object is created). Hash keyed on vtable name, value is an invokable PMC. Includes vtable overrides composed in from roles.

Methods

METHOD make_namespace(PMC* key)

Create and retrieve the namespace given by key. If the namespace already exists, only retrieve it.

METHOD add_namespace(STRING *name, PMC *namespace)

Stores the given namespace under this namespace, with the given name. Throws an invalid type exception if namespace is not a NameSpace PMC or subclass.

METHOD add_sub(STRING *name, PMC *sub)

Stores the given sub under this namespace, with the given name. Throws an invalid type exception if sub is not a Sub PMC or subclass.

METHOD add_var(STRING *name, PMC *var)

Stores the given variable under this namespace, with the given name.

METHOD get_name()

Returns the name of the namespace as an array of strings.

  $P2 = $P3.'get_name'()
  $S0 = join '::', $P2            # '::Foo::Bar'
METHOD find_namespace(STRING *name)

Return the namespace with the given name.

METHOD find_sub(STRING *name)

Return the Sub PMC with the given name.

METHOD find_var(STRING *name)

Return the PMC with the given name.

METHOD del_namespace(STRING *name)

Deletes the contained NameSpace PMC with the given name. Throws an invalid type exception if the item to delete is not a NameSpace PMC or subclass, and does not delete the PMC.

METHOD del_sub(STRING *name)

Deletes the contained Sub PMC with the given name. Throws an invalid type exception if the item to delete is not a Sub PMC or subclass, and does not delete the PMC.

METHOD del_var(STRING *name)

Deletes the contained variable-like PMC with the given name.

METHOD get_sym(STRING *name)

Return the symbol (var or sub) with the given name. This can be used to retrieve symbols, if a NameSpace with the same name exists.

METHOD export_to(PMC *dest, PMC *what)

Export items from this NameSpace into the dest NameSpace. The items to export are named in what, which may be an array of strings, a hash, or null. If what is an array of strings, interpretation of items in an array follows the conventions of the source (exporting) namespace. If what is a hash, the keys correspond to the names in the source namespace, and the values correspond to the names in the destination namespace. if a hash value is null or an empty string, the name in the hash key is used. A null what requests the 'default' set of items. Any other type passed in what throws an exception.

NOTE: exporting 'default' set of items is not yet implemented.

METHOD get_parent()

Return the parent NameSpace or PMCNULL, if none.

METHOD get_class()

Returns the class or role PMC that is associated with this namespace.

METHOD set_class(PMC *class_or_role)

Sets the class or role PMC that is associated with this namespace.

METHOD get_associated_methods()

Gets the Hash of methods associated with this namespace and removes it from the namespace.

METHOD get_associated_vtable_methods()

Gets the Hash of vtables associated with this namespace and removes it from the namespace.
