NAME

       "Tangence::Meta::Type" - structure representing one "Tangence" value type

DESCRIPTION

       This data structure object represents information about a type, such as a method or event
       argument, a method return value, or a property element type.

       Due to their simple contents and immutable nature, these objects may be implemented as
       singletons.

CONSTRUCTOR

   $type = Tangence::Meta::Type->new( $primitive )
       Returns an instance to represent the given primitive type signature.

   $type = Tangence::Meta::Type->new( $aggregate => $member_type )
       Returns an instance to represent the given aggregation of the given type instance.

   $type = Tangence::Meta::Type->new_from_sig( $sig )
       Parses the given full Tangence type signature and returns an instance to represent it.

ACCESSORS

   $agg = $type->aggregate
       Returns "prim" for primitive types, or the aggregation name for list and dict aggregate
       types.

   $member_type = $type->member_type
       Returns the member type for aggregation types. Throws an exception for primitive types.

   $sig = $type->sig
       Returns the Tangence type signature for the type.
