Package typeutil defines various utilities for types, such as Map, a mapping from types.Type to interface{} values.

This section is empty.


func Dependencies

func Dependencies(pkgs ...*types.Package) []*types.Package

Dependencies returns all dependencies of the specified packages.

Dependent packages appear in topological order: if package P imports package Q, Q appears earlier than P in the result. The algorithm follows import statements in the order they appear in the source code, so the result is a total order.

func IntuitiveMethodSet

func IntuitiveMethodSet(T types.Type, msets *MethodSetCache) []*types.Selection

IntuitiveMethodSet returns the intuitive method set of a type T, which is the set of methods you can call on an addressable value of that type.

The result always contains MethodSet(T), and is exactly MethodSet(T) for interface types and for pointer-to-concrete types. For all other concrete types T, the result additionally contains each method belonging to *T if there is no identically named method on T itself.

This corresponds to user intuition about method sets; this function is intended only for user interfaces.

The order of the result is as for types.MethodSet(T).


type Hasher

type Hasher struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A Hasher maps each type to its hash value. For efficiency, a hasher uses memoization; thus its memory footprint grows monotonically over time. Hashers are not thread-safe. Hashers have reference semantics. Call MakeHasher to create a Hasher.

func MakeHasher

func MakeHasher() Hasher

MakeHasher returns a new Hasher instance.

func (Hasher) Hash

func (h Hasher) Hash(t types.Type) uint32

Hash computes a hash value for the given type t such that Identical(t, t') => Hash(t) == Hash(t').

type Map

type Map struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Map is a hash-table-based mapping from types (types.Type) to arbitrary interface{} values. The concrete types that implement the Type interface are pointers. Since they are not canonicalized, == cannot be used to check for equivalence, and thus we cannot simply use a Go map.

Just as with map[K]V, a nil *Map is a valid empty map.

Not thread-safe.

func (*Map) At

func (m *Map) At(key types.Type) interface{}

At returns the map entry for the given key. The result is nil if the entry is not present.

func (*Map) Delete

func (m *Map) Delete(key types.Type) bool

Delete removes the entry with the given key, if any. It returns true if the entry was found.

func (*Map) Iterate

func (m *Map) Iterate(f func(key types.Type, value interface{}))

Iterate calls function f on each entry in the map in unspecified order.

If f should mutate the map, Iterate provides the same guarantees as Go maps: if f deletes a map entry that Iterate has not yet reached, f will not be invoked for it, but if f inserts a map entry that Iterate has not yet reached, whether or not f will be invoked for it is unspecified.

func (*Map) Keys

func (m *Map) Keys() []types.Type

Keys returns a new slice containing the set of map keys. The order is unspecified.

func (*Map) KeysString

func (m *Map) KeysString() string

KeysString returns a string representation of the map's key set. Order is unspecified.

func (*Map) Len

func (m *Map) Len() int

Len returns the number of map entries.

func (*Map) Set

func (m *Map) Set(key types.Type, value interface{}) (prev interface{})

Set sets the map entry for key to val, and returns the previous entry, if any.

func (*Map) SetHasher

func (m *Map) SetHasher(hasher Hasher)

SetHasher sets the hasher used by Map.

All Hashers are functionally equivalent but contain internal state used to cache the results of hashing previously seen types.

A single Hasher created by MakeHasher() may be shared among many Maps. This is recommended if the instances have many keys in common, as it will amortize the cost of hash computation.

A Hasher may grow without bound as new types are seen. Even when a type is deleted from the map, the Hasher never shrinks, since other types in the map may reference the deleted type indirectly.

Hashers are not thread-safe, and read-only operations such as Map.Lookup require updates to the hasher, so a full Mutex lock (not a read-lock) is require around all Map operations if a shared hasher is accessed from multiple threads.

If SetHasher is not called, the Map will create a private hasher at the first call to Insert.

func (*Map) String

func (m *Map) String() string

String returns a string representation of the map's entries. Values are printed using fmt.Sprintf("%v", v). Order is unspecified.

type MethodSetCache

type MethodSetCache struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

A MethodSetCache records the method set of each type T for which MethodSet(T) is called so that repeat queries are fast. The zero value is a ready-to-use cache instance.

func (*MethodSetCache) MethodSet

func (cache *MethodSetCache) MethodSet(T types.Type) *types.MethodSet

MethodSet returns the method set of type T. It is thread-safe.

If cache is nil, this function is equivalent to types.NewMethodSet(T). Utility functions can thus expose an optional *MethodSetCache parameter to clients that care about performance.
