Struct rustc_middle::ty::sty::Binder[][src]

pub struct Binder<'tcx, T>(T, &'tcx List<BoundVariableKind>);
Expand description

Binder is a binder for higher-ranked lifetimes or types. It is part of the compiler’s representation for things like for<'a> Fn(&'a isize) (which would be represented by the type PolyTraitRef == Binder<'tcx, TraitRef>). Note that when we instantiate, erase, or otherwise “discharge” these bound vars, we change the type from Binder<'tcx, T> to just T (see e.g., liberate_late_bound_regions).

Decodable and Encodable are implemented for Binder<T> using the impl_binder_encode_decode! macro.

Implementations

Object types don’t have a self type specified. Therefore, when we convert the principal trait-ref into a normal trait-ref, you must give some self type. A common choice is mk_err() or some placeholder type.

Wraps value in a binder, asserting that value does not contain any bound vars that would be bound by the binder. This is commonly used to ‘inject’ a value T into a different binding level.

Skips the binder and returns the “bound” value. This is a risky thing to do because it’s easy to get confused about De Bruijn indices and the like. It is usually better to discharge the binder using no_bound_vars or replace_late_bound_regions or something like that. skip_binder is only valid when you are either extracting data that has nothing to do with bound vars, you are doing some sort of test that does not involve bound regions, or you are being very careful about your depth accounting.

Some examples where skip_binder is reasonable:

  • extracting the DefId from a PolyTraitRef;
  • comparing the self type of a PolyTraitRef to see if it is equal to a type parameter X, since the type X does not reference any regions

Wraps a value in a binder, using the same bound variables as the current Binder. This should not be used if the new value changes the bound variables. Note: the (old or new) value itself does not necessarily need to name all the bound variables.

This currently doesn’t do anything different than bind, because we don’t actually track bound vars. However, semantically, it is different because bound vars aren’t allowed to change here, whereas they are in bind. This may be (debug) asserted in the future.

Unwraps and returns the value within, but only if it contains no bound vars at all. (In other words, if this binder – and indeed any enclosing binder – doesn’t bind anything at all.) Otherwise, returns None.

(One could imagine having a method that just unwraps a single binder, but permits late-bound vars bound by enclosing binders, but that would require adjusting the debruijn indices, and given the shallow binding structure we often use, would not be that useful.)

Splits the contents into two things that share the same binder level as the original, returning two distinct binders.

f should consider bound regions at depth 1 to be free, and anything it produces with bound regions at depth 1 will be bound in the resulting return values.

Returns the DefId of the trait of the associated item being projected.

Get the PolyTraitRef required for this projection to be well formed. Note that for generic associated types the predicates of the associated type also need to be checked.

The DefId of the TraitItem for the associated type.

Note that this is not the DefId of the TraitRef containing this associated type, which is in tcx.associated_item(projection_def_id()).container.

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.
