Type checked partial references

partial_ref - Type checked partial references. Build Status

This crate provides type checked partial references for rust. Type checked partial references are one solution to solve interprocedural borrowing conflicts.


use partial_ref::*;

part!(pub Neighbors: Vec<Vec<usize>>);
part!(pub Colors: Vec<usize>);
part!(pub Weights: Vec<f32>);

#[derive(PartialRefTarget, Default)]
pub struct Graph {
    pub neighbors: Vec<Vec<usize>>,
    pub colors: Vec<usize>,
    pub weights: Vec<f32>,

let mut g = Graph::default();
let mut g_ref = g.into_partial_ref_mut();

g_ref.part_mut(Colors).extend(&[0, 1, 0]);
g_ref.part_mut(Weights).extend(&[0.25, 0.5, 0.75]);

g_ref.part_mut(Neighbors).push(vec![1, 2]);
g_ref.part_mut(Neighbors).push(vec![0, 2]);
g_ref.part_mut(Neighbors).push(vec![0, 1]);

pub fn add_color_to_weight(
    mut g: partial!(Graph, mut Weights, Colors),
    index: usize,
) {
    g.part_mut(Weights)[index] += g.part(Colors)[index] as f32;

let (neighbors, mut g_ref) = g_ref.split_part_mut(Neighbors);
let (colors, mut g_ref) = g_ref.split_part(Colors);

for (edges, &color) in neighbors.iter_mut().zip(colors.iter()) {
    edges.retain(|&neighbor| colors[neighbor] != color);

    for &neighbor in edges.iter() {
        add_color_to_weight(g_ref.borrow(), neighbor);
