Class dmd.identifier.Identifier

class Identifier
  : RootObject ;


this (name, length, value) Construct an identifier from a D slice


anonymous () Sentinel for an anonymous identifier.
generateIdWithLoc (prefix, loc) Generate deterministic named identifier based on a source location, such that the name is consistent across multiple compilations. A new unique name is generated. If the prefix+location is already in the stringtable, an extra suffix is added (starting the count at "_1").
idPool (s, len) Create an identifier in the string table.
isValidIdentifier (str) Determine if string is a valid Identifier.
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.
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.
toHash () Compute hash function for Object.
toString ()
toString () Convert Object to a human readable string.
