Variants

Deref

Field(Field, T)

Index(V)

Index into a slice/array.

Note that this does not also dereference, and so it does not exactly correspond to slice indexing in Rust. In other words, in the below Rust code:

let x = &[1, 2, 3, 4];
let i = 2;
x[i];

The x[i] is turned into a Deref followed by an Index, not just an Index. The same thing is true of the ConstantIndex and Subslice projections below.

ConstantIndex

Fields

offset: u64

index or -index (in Python terms), depending on from_end

min_length: u64

The thing being indexed must be at least this long. For arrays this is always the exact length.

from_end: bool

Counting backwards from end? This is always false when indexing an array.

These indices are generated by slice patterns. Easiest to explain by example:

[X, _, .._, _, _] => { offset: 0, min_length: 4, from_end: false },
[_, X, .._, _, _] => { offset: 1, min_length: 4, from_end: false },
[_, _, .._, X, _] => { offset: 2, min_length: 4, from_end: true },
[_, _, .._, _, X] => { offset: 1, min_length: 4, from_end: true },

Subslice

Fields

from: u64
to: u64
from_end: bool

Whether to counts from the start or end of the array/slice. For PlaceElems this is true if and only if the base is a slice. For ProjectionKind, this can also be true for arrays.

These indices are generated by slice patterns.

If from_end is true slice[from..slice.len() - to]. Otherwise array[from..to].

Downcast(Option<Symbol>, VariantIdx)

“Downcast” to a variant of an enum or a generator.

The included Symbol is the name of the variant, used for printing MIR.

Implementations

Returns true if the target of this projection may refer to a different region of memory than the base.

Returns true if this is a Downcast projection with the given VariantIdx.

Returns true if this is a Field projection with the given index.

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

Layout

Note: Unable to compute type layout, possibly due to this type having generic parameters. Layout can only be computed for concrete, fully-instantiated types.
