# [−][src]Crate typenum

This crate provides type-level numbers evaluated at compile time. It depends only on libcore.

The traits defined or used in this crate are used in a typical manner. They can be divided into
two categories: **marker traits** and **type operators**.

Many of the marker traits have functions defined, but they all do essentially the same thing: convert a type into its runtime counterpart, and are really just there for debugging. For example,

use typenum::{N4, Integer}; assert_eq!(N4::to_i32(), -4);

**Type operators** are traits that behave as functions at the type level. These are the meat of
this library. Where possible, traits defined in libcore have been used, but their attached
functions have not been implemented.

For example, the `Add`

trait is implemented for both unsigned and signed integers, but the
`add`

function is not. As there are never any objects of the types defined here, it wouldn't
make sense to implement it. What is important is its associated type `Output`

, which is where
the addition happens.

use std::ops::Add; use typenum::{Integer, P3, P4}; type X = <P3 as Add<P4>>::Output; assert_eq!(<X as Integer>::to_i32(), 7);

In addition, helper aliases are defined for type operators. For example, the above snippet could be replaced with

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

Documented in each module is the full list of type operators implemented.

## Modules

array | A type-level array of type-level numbers. |

bit | Type-level bits. |

consts | Type aliases for many constants. |

int | Type-level signed integers. |

marker_traits | All of the |

operator_aliases | Aliases for the type operators used in this crate.
Their purpose is to increase the ergonomics of performing operations on the types defined
here. For even more ergonomics, consider using the |

type_operators | Useful |

uint | Type-level unsigned integers. |

## Macros

assert_type | Asserts that a type is |

assert_type_eq | Asserts that two types are the same. |

cmp | Deprecated A convenience macro for comparing type numbers. Use |

op | Convenient type operations. |

tarr | Create a new type-level arrray. Only usable on Rust 1.13.0 or newer. |

## Structs

Equal | A potential output from |

Greater | A potential output from |

Less | A potential output from |
