This module contains the compilation passes that are executed
in SurfaceAst (the very front end of the compiler)
except the parsing pass (that is available in OpaParser)
open SurfaceAstPassesTypes
open SurfaceAst
This pass looks for Package declaration of each file, and loads these
The node Package is removed from the code and never appears afterwards
val pass_load_objects:
options:options ->
(([< SurfaceAst.all_directives > `static_content `static_content_directory `static_resource `static_resource_directory ] as 'b) parsed_file list * 'b parsed_file list) ->
((string, 'b) SurfaceAst.code_elt ObjectFiles.parsed_code -> unit) ->
This pass goes through the whole to transform the syntactic constructions
parsers and xml_parser into real opa code
Parser generation happens in
Xml_parser generation happens in
Assumptions: no alpha renaming yet
no directives other than `xml_parser contains an expression in its variant
Directives removed : [\[ `xml_parser _ \]]
Directives added : [\[\]]
val pass_parser_generation :
options:options ->
(string,parsing_directive) env_both_lcodes ->
(string, renaming_directive) env_both_lcodes
This pass alpha renames the whole code
It takes care of renaming types, type variables, and identifiers
- every identifier that is allowed to be unbound should be given (first argument)
for example, git_version, or release are defined afterwards by the compiler and must be given
in the list
- every type identifier that is allowed to be unbound should given as
a second argument
tuples are a special cases: tuple_%d, where d >= 0 is automatically defined once it is used
afterwards, a mapping from integers to the corresponding tuple identifier can be retrieved
- no directive bind variables in their subexpression, or somehow change the scope
there is of course a few exceptions: SurfaceAst.alpha_renaming_directive
- no variant of a directive contains expressions, patterns, types or anything that should be renamed
Directives removed : [SurfaceAst.alpha_renaming_directive]
Directives added : [\[ `local \]]
val pass_check_duplication :
string list ->
string list ->
options:options ->
(string, renaming_directive) env_both_lcodes ->
(Ident.t, dependency_directive) env_both_lcodes
This pass insert the definitions of tuple_%d for every use that was recorded
by the alpha renaming pass
Assumption: alpha renaming has been performed already
Directives removed : [\[\]]
Directives added : [\[\]]
val pass_tuple_types :
options:options ->
(Ident.t, 'b) code ->
(Ident.t, 'b) code
