typenum 1.10.0

Typenum is a Rust library for type-level numbers evaluated at compile time. It currently supports bits, unsigned integers, and signed integers. It also provides a type-level array of type-level numbers, but its implementation is incomplete.

Typenum

Typenum is a Rust library for type-level numbers evaluated at compile time. It currently supports bits, unsigned integers, and signed integers.

Typenum depends only on libcore, and so is suitable for use on any platform!

For the full documentation, go here.

Importing

While typenum is divided into several modules, they are all re-exported through the crate root, so you can import anything contained herein with use typenum::whatever;, ignoring the crate structure.

You may also find it useful to treat the consts module as a prelude, perfoming a glob import.

Example

Here is a trivial example of typenum's use:

use typenum::{Sum, Exp, Integer, N2, P3, P4};

type X = Sum<P3, P4>;
assert_eq!(<X as Integer>::to_i32(), 7);

type Y = Exp<N2, P3>;
assert_eq!(<Y as Integer>::to_i32(), -8);

For a non-trivial example of its use, see one of the crates that depends on it. The full list is here. Of note are dimensioned which does compile-time type checking for arbitrary unit systems and generic-array which provides arrays whose length you can generically refer to.
