Expand description

The various kinds of types recognized by the compiler.


Slice(&'hir Ty<'hir>)

A variable length slice (i.e., [T]).

Array(&'hir Ty<'hir>, AnonConst)

A fixed length array (i.e., [T; n]).


A raw pointer (i.e., *const T or *mut T).


A reference (i.e., &'a T or &'a mut T).

BareFn(&'hir BareFnTy<'hir>)

A bare function (e.g., fn(usize) -> bool).


The never type (!).

Tup(&'hir [Ty<'hir>])

A tuple ((A, B, C, D, ...)).


A path to a type definition (module::module::...::Type), or an associated type (e.g., <Vec<T> as Trait>::Type or <T>::Target).

Type parameters may be stored in each PathSegment.

OpaqueDef(ItemId&'hir [GenericArg<'hir>])

A opaque type definition itself. This is currently only used for the opaque type Foo: Trait item that impl Trait in desugars to.

The generic argument list contains the lifetimes (and in the future possibly parameters) that are actually bound on the impl Trait.

TraitObject(&'hir [PolyTraitRef<'hir>]LifetimeTraitObjectSyntax)

A trait object type Bound1 + Bound2 + Bound3 where Bound is a trait or a lifetime.


Unused for now.


TyKind::Infer means the type should be inferred instead of it having been specified. This can appear anywhere in a type.


Placeholder for a type that has failed to be defined.
