Compiler implementation of the D programming language.

Source target.d

struct Target;
Describes a back-end target. At present it is incomplete, but in the future it should grow to contain most or all target machine and target O/S specific information.
In many cases, calls to sizeof() can't be used directly for getting data type sizes since cross compiling is supported and would end up using the host sizes rather than the target sizes.
uint ptrsize;
size of a pointer in bytes
uint realsize;
size a real consumes in memory
uint realpad;
padding added to the CPU real size to bring it up to realsize
uint realalignsize;
alignment for reals
uint classinfosize;
size of ClassInfo
ulong maxStaticDataSize;
maximum size of static data
uint c_longsize;
size of a C long or unsigned long type
uint c_long_doublesize;
size of a C long double
bool reverseCppOverloads;
set if overloaded functions are grouped and in reverse order (such as in dmc and cl)
bool cppExceptions;
set if catching C++ exceptions is supported
char int64Mangle;
mangling character for C++ int64_t
char uint64Mangle;
mangling character for C++ uint64_t
struct FPTypeProperties(T);
Values representing all properties for floating point types
real_t max;
largest representable value that's not infinity
real_t min_normal;
smallest representable normalized value that's not 0
real_t nan;
NaN value
real_t snan;
signalling NaN value
real_t infinity;
infinity value
real_t epsilon;
smallest increment to the value 1
d_int64 dig;
number of decimal digits of precision
d_int64 mant_dig;
number of bits in mantissa
d_int64 max_exp;
maximum int value such that 2max_exp-1 is representable
d_int64 min_exp;
minimum int value such that 2min_exp-1 is representable as a normalized value
d_int64 max_10_exp;
maximum int value such that 10max_10_exp is representable
d_int64 min_10_exp;
minimum int value such that 10min_10_exp is representable as a normalized value
alias FloatProperties = .Target.FPTypeProperties!float.FPTypeProperties;
alias DoubleProperties = .Target.FPTypeProperties!double.FPTypeProperties;
alias RealProperties = .Target.FPTypeProperties!real.FPTypeProperties;
static void _init();
Initialize the Target
static uint alignsize(Type type);
Requested target memory alignment size of the given type.
Type type type to inspect
alignment in bytes
static uint fieldalign(Type type);
Requested target field alignment size of the given type.
Type type type to inspect
alignment in bytes
static uint critsecsize();
Size of the target OS critical section.
size in bytes
static Type va_listType();
Type for the va_list type for the target.

NOTE For Posix/x86_64 this returns the type which will really be used for passing an argument of type va_list.

Type that represents va_list.
static int isVectorTypeSupported(int sz, Type type);
Checks whether the target supports a vector type.
int sz vector type size in bytes
Type type vector element type
0 vector type is supported, 1 vector type is not supported on the target at all 2 vector element type is not supported 3 vector size is not supported
static bool isVectorOpSupported(Type type, TOK op, Type t2 = null);
Checks whether the target supports the given operation for vectors.
Type type target type of operation
TOK op the unary or binary op being done on the type
Type t2 type of second operand if op is a binary operation
true if the operation is supported or type is not a vector
static Expression paintAsType(Expression e, Type type);
Encode the given expression, which is assumed to be an rvalue literal as another type for use in CTFE. This corresponds roughly to the idiom *cast(T*)&e.
Expression e literal constant expression
Type type target type of the result
resulting Expression re-evaluated as type
static void loadModule(Module m);
Perform any post parsing analysis on the given module. Certain compiler backends (ie: GDC) have special placeholder modules whose source are empty, but code gets injected immediately after loading.
Module m module to inspect
static const(char)* toCppMangle(Dsymbol s);
Mangle the given symbol for C++ ABI.
Dsymbol s declaration with C++ linkage
string mangling of symbol
static const(char)* cppTypeInfoMangle(ClassDeclaration cd);
Get RTTI mangling of the given class declaration for C++ ABI.
ClassDeclaration cd class with C++ linkage
string mangling of C++ typeinfo
static const(char)* cppTypeMangle(Type t);
Gets vendor-specific type mangling for C++ ABI.
Type t type to inspect
string if type is mangled specially on target null if unhandled
static Type cppParameterType(Parameter p);
Get the type that will really be used for passing the given argument to an extern(C++) function.
Parameter p parameter to be passed.
Type to use for parameter p.
static LINK systemLinkage();
Default system linkage for the target.
LINK to use for extern(System)
static TypeTuple toArgTypes(Type t);
Describes how an argument type is passed to a function on target.
Type t type to break down
tuple of types if type is passed in one or more registers empty tuple if type is always passed on the stack
static bool isReturnOnStack(TypeFunction tf);
TypeFunction tf function type to check
true if return value from function is on the stack
static ulong parameterSize(ref const Loc loc, Type t);
Determine the size a value of type t will be when it is passed on the function parameter stack.
Loc loc location to use for error messages
Type t type of parameter
size used on parameter stack
