}
Expand description

NamedMatch is a pattern-match result for a single metavar. All MatchedNonterminals in the NamedMatch have the same non-terminal type (expr, item, etc).

The in-memory structure of a particular NamedMatch represents the match that occurred when a particular subset of a matcher was applied to a particular token tree.

The width of each MatchedSeq in the NamedMatch, and the identity of the MatchedNtNonTtss, will depend on the token tree it was applied to: each MatchedSeq corresponds to a single repetition in the originating token tree. The depth of the NamedMatch structure will therefore depend only on the nesting depth of repetitions in the originating token tree it was derived from.

In layperson’s terms: NamedMatch will form a tree representing nested matches of a particular meta variable. For example, if we are matching the following macro against the following invocation…

macro_rules! foo {
  ($($($x:ident),+);+) => {}
}

foo!(a, b, c, d; a, b, c, d, e);

Then, the tree will have the following shape:

MatchedSeq([
  MatchedSeq([
    MatchedNonterminal(a),
    MatchedNonterminal(b),
    MatchedNonterminal(c),
    MatchedNonterminal(d),
  ]),
  MatchedSeq([
    MatchedNonterminal(a),
    MatchedNonterminal(b),
    MatchedNonterminal(c),
    MatchedNonterminal(d),
    MatchedNonterminal(e),
  ])
])
