Instance Method Detail

def !=(other : ASTNode) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this node's textual representation is not the same as the other node.


[View source]
def ==(other : ASTNode) : BoolLiteral #

Returns true if this node's textual representation is the same as the other node.


[View source]
def class_name : StringLiteral #

Returns a StringLiteral that contains this node's name.

macro test
  {{ "foo".class_name }}
end

puts test # => prints StringLiteral

[View source]
def column_number : StringLiteral | NilLiteral #

Returns the column number where this node begins. Might return nil if the location is not known.

The first column number in a line is 1.


[View source]
def end_column_number : StringLiteral | NilLiteral #

Returns the column number where this node ends. Might return nil if the location is not known.

The first column number in a line is 1.


[View source]
def end_line_number : StringLiteral | NilLiteral #

Returns the line number where this node ends. Might return nil if the location is not known.

The first line number in a file is 1.


[View source]
def filename : StringLiteral | NilLiteral #

Returns the filename where this node is located. Might return nil if the location is not known.


[View source]
def id : MacroId #

Returns this node as a MacroId. Useful when you need an identifier out of a StringLiteral, SymbolLiteral, Var or Call.

macro define_method(name, content)
  def {{name.id}}
    {{content}}
  end
end

define_method :foo, 1
define_method "bar", 2
define_method baz, 3

puts foo # => prints 1
puts bar # => prints 2
puts baz # => prints 3

[View source]
def line_number : StringLiteral | NilLiteral #

Returns the line number where this node begins. Might return nil if the location is not known.

The first line number in a file is 1.


[View source]
def raise(message) : NoReturn #

Gives a compile-time error with the given message. This will highlight this node in the error message.


[View source]
def stringify : StringLiteral #

Returns a StringLiteral that contains this node's textual representation. Note that invoking stringify on a string literal will return a StringLiteral that contains a string literal.

macro test
  {{ "foo".stringify }}
end

puts test # prints "foo" (including the double quotes)
