Class Method Details

.attr_reader(*args) ⇒ Object

Expression objects are assumed to be value objects, where their attribute values can't change after assignment. In order to make it easy to define equality and hash methods, subclass instances assume that the only values that affect the results of such methods are the values of the object's attributes.

# File 'lib/sequel/sql.rb', line 100

def attr_reader(*args)
  super
  comparison_attrs.concat(args)
end

.inherited(subclass) ⇒ Object

Copy the comparison_attrs into the subclass.

Instance Method Details

#==(other) ⇒ Object

Alias of eql?



125

127
# File 'lib/sequel/sql.rb', line 125

def ==(other)
  eql?(other)
end

#eql?(other) ⇒ Boolean

Returns true if the receiver is the same expression as the the other expression.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

# File 'lib/sequel/sql.rb', line 131

def eql?(other)
  other.is_a?(self.class) && !self.class.comparison_attrs.find{|a| send(a) != other.send(a)}
end

#hashObject

Make sure that the hash value is the same if the attributes are the same.

# File 'lib/sequel/sql.rb', line 136

def hash
  ([self.class] + self.class.comparison_attrs.map{|x| send(x)}).hash
end

#inspectObject

Attempt to produce a string suitable for eval, such that:

eval(obj.inspect) == obj

# File 'lib/sequel/sql.rb', line 142

def inspect
  "#<#{self.class} #{instance_variables.map{|iv| "#{iv}=>#{instance_variable_get(iv).inspect}"}.join(', ')}>"
end

#litObject

Returns self, because SQL::Expression already acts like LiteralString.

# File 'lib/sequel/sql.rb', line 147

def lit
  self

#sql_literal(ds) ⇒ Object
