Crate gluon_base

source ·
Expand description

The base crate contains pervasive types used in the compiler such as type representations, the AST and some basic containers.


  • Module containing the types which make up gluon’s AST (Abstract Syntax Tree)
  • Module containing a few common error wrappers which allows more information to be saved for later display to the user
  • Collection types which allows insertion of new values while shared references to its contents are alive. This is done by storing each value in a stable memory location and preventing an earlier inserted value to be overwritten.
  • Source code locations (borrowed from rustc’s libsyntax_pos)
  • A map data type which allows the same key to exist at multiple scope levels
  • Module containing types and functions for mapping between byte indexes and line and column locations
  • Module which contains types working with symbols
