def self.create(*args)
  # NOTE! Important to use self::DEFAULT and not just DEFAULT since the latter yields PAnyType::DEFAULT
  args.empty? ? self::DEFAULT : new(*args)
end

.new_function(type) ⇒ Function

This default implementation of of a new_function raises an Argument Error. Types for which creating a new instance is supported, should create and return a Puppet Function class by using Puppet:Loaders.create_loaded_function(:new, loader) and return that result.

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)

def self.register_ptype(loader, ir)
  @type = Pcore::create_object_type(loader, ir, self, 'Pcore::AnyType', 'Any', EMPTY_HASH)
end

.simple_nameString

Strips the class name from all module prefixes, the leading 'P' and the ending 'Type'. I.e. an instance of PVariantType will return 'Variant'

def ==(o)
  eql?(o)

#accept(visitor, guard) ⇒ Object

Accept a visitor that will be sent the message `visit`, once with `self` as the argument. The visitor will then visit all types that this type contains.

# File 'lib/puppet/pops/types/types.rb', line 90

def accept(visitor, guard)
  visitor.visit(self, guard)
end

#assignable?(o, guard = nil) ⇒ Boolean

Checks if o is a type that is assignable to this type. If o is a `Class` then it is first converted to a type. If o is a Variant, then it is considered assignable when all its types are assignable

The check for assignable must be guarded against self recursion since `self`, the given type o, or both, might be a `TypeAlias`. The initial caller of this method will typically never care about this and hence pass only the first argument, but as soon as a check of a contained type encounters a `TypeAlias`, then a `RecursionGuard` instance is created and passed on in all subsequent calls. The recursion is allowed to continue until self recursion has been detected in both `self` and in the given type. At that point the given type is considered to be assignable to `self` since all checks up to that point were positive.

#callable_args?(callable, guard) ⇒ Boolean

Returns `true` if this instance is considered valid as arguments to the given `callable`

#check_self_recursion(originator) ⇒ Object

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Called from the `PTypeAliasType` when it detects self recursion. The default is to do nothing but some self recursive constructs are illegal such as when a `PObjectType` somehow inherits itself

Raises:

  • Puppet::Error if an illegal self recursion is detected

# File 'lib/puppet/pops/types/types.rb', line 240

#iterable_type(guard = nil) ⇒ PIterableType?

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Returns the `PIterableType` that this type should be assignable to, or `nil` if no such type exists. A type that returns a `PIterableType` must respond `true` to `#iterable?`.

Examples:

Any Collection[T] is assignable to an Iterable[T]
A String is assignable to an Iterable[String] iterating over the strings characters
An Integer is assignable to an Iterable[Integer] iterating over the 'times' enumerator
A Type[T] is assignable to an Iterable[Type[T]] if T is an Integer or Enum

end

#kind_of_callable?(optional = true, guard = nil) ⇒ Boolean

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Responds `true` for all callables, variants of callables and unless optional is false, all optional callables.

# File 'lib/puppet/pops/types/types.rb', line 329

def new_function

#normalize(guard = nil) ⇒ PAnyType

Normalizes the type. This does not change the characteristics of the type but it will remove duplicates and constructs like NotUndef where T is not assignable from Undef and change Variant where all T are enums into an Enum.

# File 'lib/puppet/pops/types/types.rb', line 209

end

#really_instance?(o, guard = nil) ⇒ Integer

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

An object is considered to really be an instance of a type when something other than a TypeAlias or a Variant responds true to a call to #instance?.

# File 'lib/puppet/pops/types/types.rb', line 277

def really_instance?(o, guard = nil)
  instance?(o, guard) ? 1 : -1
end

#resolve(loader) ⇒ PTypeAliasType

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Called from the TypeParser once it has found a type using the Loader to enable that this type can resolve internal type expressions using a loader. Presently, this method is a no-op for all types except the {PTypeAliasType}.
