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