Class dmd.attrib.CPPNamespaceDeclaration

A node to represent an extern(C++) namespace attribute

class CPPNamespaceDeclaration
  : AttribDeclaration ;

There are two ways to declarate a symbol as member of a namespace: Nspace and CPPNamespaceDeclaration. The former creates a scope for the symbol, and inject them in the parent scope at the same time. The later, this class, has no semantic implications and is only used for mangling. Additionally, this class allows one to use reserved identifiers (D keywords) in the namespace.

A CPPNamespaceDeclaration can be created from an Identifier (already resolved) or from an Expression, which is CTFE-ed and can be either a TupleExp, in which can additional CPPNamespaceDeclaration nodes are created, or a StringExp.

Note that this class, like Nspace, matches only one identifier part of a namespace. For the namespace "foo::bar", the will be a CPPNamespaceDeclaration with its ident set to "bar", and its namespace field pointing to another CPPNamespaceDeclaration with its ident set to "foo".

newScope (sc)
accept (v)
addComment (comment) Add documentation comment to Dsymbol. Ignore NULL comments.
addLocalClass (aclasses)
arraySyntaxCopy (a) Do syntax copy of an array of Dsymbol's.
createNewScope (sc, stc, linkage, cppmangle, visibility, explicitVisibility, aligndecl, inlining) Create a new scope if one or more given attributes are different from the sc's. If the returned scope != sc, the caller should pop the scope after it used.
factory (classname) Create instance of class specified by the fully qualified name classname. The class must either have no constructors or have a default constructor.
followInstantiationContext (p1, p2) Returns true if any of the symbols p1 or p2 resides in the enclosing instantiation scope of this.
getAccessModule () Determine which Module a Dsymbol is in, as far as access rights go.
getModule () Determine which Module a Dsymbol is in.
hasPointers () Is Dsymbol a variable that contains pointers?
inNonRoot () Returns true if this symbol is defined in a non-root module without instantiation.
isMember () Returns an AggregateDeclaration when toParent() is that.
isMember2 () Returns an AggregateDeclaration when toParent2() is that.
isMemberDecl () Returns an AggregateDeclaration when toParentDecl() is that.
isMemberLocal () Returns an AggregateDeclaration when toParentLocal() is that.
oneMember (ps, ident) Determine if this symbol is only one.
oneMembers (members, ps, ident) Same as Dsymbol::oneMember(), but look at an array of Dsymbols.
opCmp (o) Compare with another Object obj.
opEquals (o) Test whether this is equal to o. The default implementation only compares by identity (using the is operator). Generally, overrides for opEquals should attempt to compare objects by their contents.
pastMixin () pastMixin returns the enclosing symbol if this is a template mixin.
search (loc, ident, flags) Search for ident as member of s.
searchX (loc, sc, id, flags) Search for identifier id as a member of this. id may be a template instance.
setScope (sc) Set scope for future semantic analysis so we can deal better with forward references.
size (loc)
syntaxCopy (s) Copy the syntax. Used for template instantiations. If s is NULL, allocate the new object, otherwise fill it in.
toAlias () If this symbol is really an alias for another, return that other. If needed, semantic() is invoked due to resolve forward reference.
toAlias2 () Resolve recursive tuple expansion in eponymous template.
toHash () Compute hash function for Object.
toParent () parent field returns a lexically enclosing scope symbol this is a member of.
toParent2 () parent field returns a lexically enclosing scope symbol this is a member of.
toParentDecl () parent field returns a lexically enclosing scope symbol this is a member of.
toParentLocal () parent field returns a lexically enclosing scope symbol this is a member of.
toParentP (p1, p2) Returns the declaration scope scope of this unless any of the symbols p1 or p2 resides in its enclosing instantiation scope then the latter is returned.
toString ()
toString () Convert Object to a human readable string.
visible ()
