Source positions and related helper functions.
Important concepts in this module include:
- the span, represented by
SpanDataand related types;
- source code as represented by a
- interned strings, represented by
Symbols, with some common symbols available statically in the
Unlike most compilers, the span contains not only the position in the source code, but also various other metadata,
such as the edition and macro hygiene. This metadata is stored in
This API is completely unstable and subject to change.

- Edit distances.
- Machinery for hygienic macros.
- Types for tracking pieces of source code within a crate.
- An “interner” is a data structure that associates values with usize tags and allows bidirectional lookup; i.e., given a value, one can easily find the type, and vice versa.

- A byte offset.
- A character offset.
- Useful type to use with
Result<>indicate that an error has already been reported to the user, so no need to continue checking.

- A source code location used for error reporting.

- Per-session global variables: this struct is stored in thread-local storage in such a way that it is accessible without any kind of handle to all threads within the compilation session, but is not accessible outside the session.

- The source file lines in difference list form. This matches the form used within metadata, which saves space by exploiting the fact that the lines list is sorted and individual lines are usually not that long.
- The hash of the on-disk source file used for debug info.
- A compressed span.

- Dummy span, both position and length are zero, syntax context is zero as well.

- Normalizes the source code and records the normalizations.
