}
Expand description

An operand in MIR represents a “value” in Rust, the definition of which is undecided and part of the memory model. One proposal for a definition of values can be found on UCG.

The most common way to create values is via loading a place. Loading a place is an operation which reads the memory of the place and converts it to a value. This is a fundamentally typed operation. The nature of the value produced depends on the type of the conversion. Furthermore, there may be other effects: if the type has a validity constraint loading the place might be UB if the validity constraint is not met.

Needs clarification: Ralf proposes that loading a place not have side-effects. This is what is implemented in miri today. Are these the semantics we want for MIR? Is this something we can even decide without knowing more about Rust’s memory model?

Needs clarifiation: Is loading a place that has its variant index set well-formed? Miri currently implements it, but it seems like this may be something to check against in the validator.

Variants§

§

Copy(Place<'tcx>)

Creates a value by loading the given place.

Before drop elaboration, the type of the place must be Copy. After drop elaboration there is no such requirement.

§

Move(Place<'tcx>)

Creates a value by performing loading the place, just like the Copy operand.

This may additionally overwrite the place with uninit bytes, depending on how we decide in UCG#188. You should not emit MIR that may attempt a subsequent second load of this place without first re-initializing it.

§

Constant(Box<Constant<'tcx>>)

Constants are already semantically values, and remain unchanged.

Implementations§

Convenience helper to make a constant that refers to the fn with given DefId and substs. Since this is used to synthesize MIR, assumes user_ty is None.

Convenience helper to make a literal-like constant from a given scalar value. Since this is used to synthesize MIR, assumes user_ty is None.

Returns the Place that is the target of this Operand, or None if this Operand is a constant.

Returns the Constant that is the target of this Operand, or None if this Operand is a place.

Gets the ty::FnDef from an operand if it’s a constant function item.

While this is unlikely in general, it’s the normal case of what you’ll find as the func in a TerminatorKind::Call.

This method tests for self and other values to be equal, and is used by ==. Read more
This method tests for !=. The default implementation is almost always sufficient, and should not be overridden without very good reason. Read more
The entry point for folding. To fold a value t with a folder f call: t.try_fold_with(f). Read more
A convenient alternative to try_fold_with for use with infallible folders. Do not override this method, to ensure coherence with try_fold_with. Read more
The entry point for visiting. To visit a value t with a visitor v call: t.visit_with(v). Read more
Returns true if self has any late-bound regions that are either bound by binder or bound by some binder outside of binder. If binder is ty::INNERMOST, this indicates whether there are any late-bound regions that appear free. Read more
Returns true if this self has any regions that escape binder (and hence are not bound by it). Read more
“Free” regions in this context means that it has any region that is not (a) erased or (b) late-bound. Read more
True if there are any un-erased free regions.
Indicates whether this value references only ‘global’ generic parameters that are the same regardless of what fn we are in. This is used for caching. Read more
True if there are any late-bound regions
Indicates whether this value still has parameters/placeholders/inference variables which could be replaced later, in a way that would change the results of impl specialization. Read more

Gets the TypeId of self. Read more
Immutably borrows from an owned value. Read more
Mutably borrows from an owned value. Read more
This method turns the parameters of a DepNodeConstructor into an opaque Fingerprint to be used in DepNode. Not all DepNodeParams support being turned into a Fingerprint (they don’t need to if the corresponding DepNode is anonymous). Read more
This method tries to recover the query key from the given DepNode, something which is needed when forcing DepNodes during red-green evaluation. The query system will only call this method if fingerprint_style() is not FingerprintStyle::Opaque. It is always valid to return None here, in which case incremental compilation will treat the query as having changed instead of forcing it. Read more

Returns the argument unchanged.

Calls U::from(self).

That is, this conversion is whatever the implementation of From<T> for U chooses to do.

The type returned in the event of a conversion error.
Performs the conversion.
The type returned in the event of a conversion error.

Layout§

Note: Most layout information is completely unstable and may even differ between compilations. The only exception is types with certain repr(...) attributes. Please see the Rust Reference’s “Type Layout” chapter for details on type layout guarantees.
