Enum rustc_middle::ty::consts::valtree::ValTree[][src]

pub enum ValTree<'tcx> {
    Leaf(ScalarInt),
    Branch(&'tcx [ValTree<'tcx>]),
}
Expand description

This datastructure is used to represent the value of constants used in the type system.

We explicitly choose a different datastructure from the way values are processed within CTFE, as in the type system equal values (according to their PartialEq) must also have equal representation (== on the rustc data structure, e.g. ValTree) and vice versa. Since CTFE uses AllocId to represent pointers, it often happens that two different AllocIds point to equal values. So we may end up with different representations for two constants whose value is &42. Furthermore any kind of struct that has padding will have arbitrary values within that padding, even if the values of the struct are the same.

ValTree does not have this problem with representation, as it only contains integers or lists of (nested) ValTree.

Variants

Leaf(ScalarInt)

ZSTs, integers, bool, char are represented as scalars. See the ScalarInt documentation for how ScalarInt guarantees that equal values of these types have the same representation.

Branch(&'tcx [ValTree<'tcx>])

The fields of any kind of aggregate. Structs, tuples and arrays are represented by listing their fields’ values in order. Enums are represented by storing their discriminant as a field, followed by all the fields of the variant.
