Enum rustc_target::abi::TagEncoding[][src]

pub enum TagEncoding {
    Direct,
    Niche {
        dataful_variant: VariantIdx,
        niche_variants: RangeInclusive<VariantIdx>,
        niche_start: u128,
    },
}

Variants

Direct

The tag directly stores the discriminant, but possibly with a smaller layout (so converting the tag to the discriminant can require sign extension).

Niche

Fields

dataful_variant: VariantIdx
niche_variants: RangeInclusive<VariantIdx>
niche_start: u128

Niche (values invalid for a type) encoding the discriminant: Discriminant and variant index coincide. The variant dataful_variant contains a niche at an arbitrary offset (field tag_field of the enum), which for a variant with discriminant d is set to (d - niche_variants.start).wrapping_add(niche_start).

For example, Option<(usize, &T)> is represented such that None has a null pointer for the second tuple field, and Some is the identity function (with a non-null reference).

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.
