Extra functions on types
module Basic :
val string : QmlAst.ty
module Inspect :
(* Functions to unfold typenames (all subtly different) *)
val find_and_specialize : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.typeident -> QmlAst.ty list -> QmlAst.ty
(** if a typename is an alias give the type in alias definition *)
val follow_alias : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> QmlAst.ty option
get the implementation of a types, traversing named types.
val follow_alias_noopt : ?until:string -> QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> QmlAst.ty
like [follow_alias_noopt] but traverse also private types.
val follow_alias_noopt_private : ?until:string -> QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> QmlAst.ty
(* ************************************************************************ *)
(* {b Descr}: Exception raised when a type contains a sub-term being a named
type defined as @private. The embedded type is the named type expression
whose named is bound to a @private type definition.
This is used when a toplevel value definition has a type in which a
@private type to the package appears and this definition is not marked
@private, hence is exported outside the package. Since the @private type
is not visible the toplevel definition must not be visible also. *)
(* ************************************************************************ *)
exception Escaping_private_type of QmlAst.ty
(* ************************************************************************ *)
(** {b Descr}: Ensures that no type private to the current package escapes,
i.e. appears in the type passed as argument. *)

val check_no_private_type_escaping : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> unit
(** if a type is an alias give follow the alias as a type list.

val get_deeper_type_until : QmlTypes.gamma -> (QmlAst.ty -> bool) -> QmlAst.ty -> QmlAst.ty
(** for a typename, follow all alias until it gets the last typename,
for other types it is identity.

val get_deeper_typename : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> QmlAst.ty
(* Other inspection functions *)
val is_type_arrow : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> bool
See if the internal implementation of [ty] is the type [void].
val is_type_void : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> bool
See if the internal implementation of [ty] is the type [bool].

(** Returns the type of data of the [ty] map. If the given [ty] is not a type
of map (or an alias) throws [Not_found].*)
val get_data_type_of_map : QmlTypes.gamma -> QmlAst.ty -> QmlAst.ty
(** Returns all types inside the given type that could be in a mutable container *)

(** Utils for arrow types *)
module TypeArrow : sig
type 'a type_arrow_utils = QmlAst.ty list -> QmlAst.ty -> 'a
Returns the number of arguments of [ty] without distinction between a function
which returns a function and its curryfied version.
@see "nary_arity" for an example
@raise Invalid_argument if the [ty] is not a [TypeArrow]
val curryfied_arity : int type_arrow_utils
