Expand description

Defines the kinds of types.

N.B., if you change this, you’ll probably want to change the corresponding AST structure in rustc_ast/src/ast.rs as well.

Variants

Bool

The primitive boolean type. Written as bool.

Char

The primitive character type; holds a Unicode scalar value (a non-surrogate code point). Written as char.

Int(IntTy)

A primitive signed integer type. For example, i32.

Tuple Fields of Int

0: IntTy
Uint(UintTy)

A primitive unsigned integer type. For example, u32.

Tuple Fields of Uint

0: UintTy
Float(FloatTy)

A primitive floating-point type. For example, f64.

Tuple Fields of Float

0: FloatTy
Adt(&'tcx AdtDefSubstsRef<'tcx>)

Algebraic data types (ADT). For example: structures, enumerations and unions.

InternalSubsts here, possibly against intuition, may contain Params. That is, even after substitution it is possible that there are type variables. This happens when the Adt corresponds to an ADT definition and not a concrete use of it.

Tuple Fields of Adt

0: &'tcx AdtDef1: SubstsRef<'tcx>
Foreign(DefId)

An unsized FFI type that is opaque to Rust. Written as extern type T.

Tuple Fields of Foreign

0: DefId
Str

The pointee of a string slice. Written as str.

Array(Ty<'tcx>, &'tcx Const<'tcx>)

An array with the given length. Written as [T; n].

Tuple Fields of Array

0: Ty<'tcx>1: &'tcx Const<'tcx>
Slice(Ty<'tcx>)

The pointee of an array slice. Written as [T].

Tuple Fields of Slice

0: Ty<'tcx>
RawPtr(TypeAndMut<'tcx>)

A raw pointer. Written as *mut T or *const T

Tuple Fields of RawPtr

0: TypeAndMut<'tcx>
Ref(Region<'tcx>, Ty<'tcx>, Mutability)

A reference; a pointer with an associated lifetime. Written as &'a mut T or &'a T.

Tuple Fields of Ref

0: Region<'tcx>1: Ty<'tcx>2: Mutability
FnDef(DefIdSubstsRef<'tcx>)

The anonymous type of a function declaration/definition. Each function has a unique type, which is output (for a function named foo returning an i32) as fn() -> i32 {foo}.

For example the type of bar here:

fn foo() -> i32 { 1 }
let bar = foo; // bar: fn() -> i32 {foo}

Tuple Fields of FnDef

0: DefId1: SubstsRef<'tcx>
FnPtr(PolyFnSig<'tcx>)

A pointer to a function. Written as fn() -> i32.

For example the type of bar here:

fn foo() -> i32 { 1 }
let bar: fn() -> i32 = foo;

Tuple Fields of FnPtr

0: PolyFnSig<'tcx>
Dynamic(&'tcx List<Binder<'tcx, ExistentialPredicate<'tcx>>>, Region<'tcx>)

A trait object. Written as dyn for<'b> Trait<'b, Assoc = u32> + Send + 'a.

Tuple Fields of Dynamic

0: &'tcx List<Binder<'tcx, ExistentialPredicate<'tcx>>>1: Region<'tcx>
Closure(DefIdSubstsRef<'tcx>)

The anonymous type of a closure. Used to represent the type of |a| a.

Tuple Fields of Closure

0: DefId1: SubstsRef<'tcx>
Generator(DefIdSubstsRef<'tcx>, Movability)

The anonymous type of a generator. Used to represent the type of |a| yield a.

Tuple Fields of Generator

0: DefId1: SubstsRef<'tcx>2: Movability
GeneratorWitness(Binder<'tcx, &'tcx List<Ty<'tcx>>>)

A type representing the types stored inside a generator. This should only appear in GeneratorInteriors.

Tuple Fields of GeneratorWitness

0: Binder<'tcx, &'tcx List<Ty<'tcx>>>
Never

The never type !.

Tuple(SubstsRef<'tcx>)

A tuple type. For example, (i32, bool). Use TyS::tuple_fields to iterate over the field types.

Tuple Fields of Tuple

0: SubstsRef<'tcx>
Projection(ProjectionTy<'tcx>)

The projection of an associated type. For example, <T as Trait<..>>::N.

Tuple Fields of Projection

0: ProjectionTy<'tcx>
Opaque(DefIdSubstsRef<'tcx>)

Opaque (impl Trait) type found in a return type. The DefId comes either from

Tuple Fields of Opaque

0: DefId1: SubstsRef<'tcx>
Param(ParamTy)

A type parameter; for example, T in fn f<T>(x: T) {}.

Tuple Fields of Param

0: ParamTy
Bound(DebruijnIndexBoundTy)

Bound type variable, used only when preparing a trait query.

Tuple Fields of Bound

0: DebruijnIndex1: BoundTy
Placeholder(PlaceholderType)

A placeholder type - universally quantified higher-ranked type.

Tuple Fields of Placeholder

0: PlaceholderType
Infer(InferTy)

A type variable used during type checking.

Tuple Fields of Infer

0: InferTy
Error(DelaySpanBugEmitted)

A placeholder for a type which could not be computed; this is propagated to avoid useless error messages.

Tuple Fields of Error

0: DelaySpanBugEmitted

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.
