Struct rustc_typeck::collect::ItemCtxt[][src]

pub struct ItemCtxt<'tcx> {
    tcx: TyCtxt<'tcx>,
    item_def_id: DefId,
Expand description

Context specific to some particular item. This is what implements AstConv. It has information about the predicates that are defined on the trait. Unfortunately, this predicate information is available in various different forms at various points in the process. So we can’t just store a pointer to e.g., the AST or the parsed ty form, we have to be more flexible. To this end, the ItemCtxt is parameterized by a DefId that it uses to satisfy get_type_parameter_bounds requests, drawing the information from the AST (hir::Generics), recursively.


tcx: TyCtxt<'tcx>item_def_id: DefId


Finds bounds from hir::Generics. This requires scanning through the AST. We do this to avoid having to convert all the bounds, which would create artificial cycles. Instead, we can only convert the bounds for a type parameter X if X::Foo is used.

Trait Implementations

Returns predicates in scope of the form X: Foo<T>, where X is a type parameter X with the given id def_id and T matches assoc_name. This is a subset of the full set of predicates. Read more

Returns the lifetime to use when a lifetime is omitted (and not elided).

Returns true if _ is allowed in type signatures in the current context.

Returns the type to use when a type is omitted.

Returns the const to use when a const is omitted.

Projecting an associated type from a (potentially) higher-ranked trait reference is more complicated, because of the possibility of late-bound regions appearing in the associated type binding. This is not legal in function signatures for that reason. In a function body, we can always handle it because we can use inference variables to remove the late-bound regions. Read more

Normalize an associated type coming from the user.

Invoked when we encounter an error from some prior pass (e.g., resolve) that is translated into a ty-error. This is used to help suppress derived errors typeck might otherwise report. Read more
