Expand description

Represents coercing a value to a different type of value.

We transform values by following a number of Adjust steps in order. See the documentation on variants of Adjust for more details.

Here are some common scenarios:

  1. The simplest cases are where a pointer is not adjusted fat vs thin. Here the pointer will be dereferenced N times (where a dereference can happen to raw or borrowed pointers or any smart pointer which implements Deref, including Box<_>). The types of dereferences is given by autoderefs. It can then be auto-referenced zero or one times, indicated by autoref, to either a raw or borrowed pointer. In these cases unsize is false.

  2. A thin-to-fat coercion involves unsizing the underlying data. We start with a thin pointer, deref a number of times, unsize the underlying data, then autoref. The ‘unsize’ phase may change a fixed length array to a dynamically sized one, a concrete object to a trait object, or statically sized struct to a dynamically sized one. E.g., &[i32; 4] -> &[i32] is represented by:

    Deref(None) -> [i32; 4],
    Borrow(AutoBorrow::Ref) -> &[i32; 4],
    Unsize -> &[i32],

    Note that for a struct, the ‘deep’ unsizing of the struct is not recorded. E.g., struct Foo<T> { x: T } we can coerce &Foo<[i32; 4]> to &Foo<[i32]> The autoderef and -ref are the same as in the above example, but the type stored in unsize is Foo<[i32]>, we don’t store any further detail about the underlying conversions from [i32; 4] to [i32].

  3. Coercing a Box<T> to Box<dyn Trait> is an interesting special case. In that case, we have the pointer we need coming in, so there are no autoderefs, and no autoref. Instead we just do the Unsize transformation. At some point, of course, Box should move out of the compiler, in which case this is analogous to transforming a struct. E.g., Box<[i32; 4]> -> Box<[i32]> is an Adjust::Unsize with the target Box<[i32]>.

Formats the value using the given formatter. 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 type has any regions that escape binder (and hence are not bound by it). Read more
Return true if this type has regions that are not a part of the type. For example, for<'a> fn(&'a i32) return false, while fn(&'a i32) would return true. The latter can occur when traversing through the former. 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.
