# std.experimental.checkedint

This module defines facilities for efficient checking of integral operations
against overflow, casting with loss of precision, unexpected change of sign,
etc. The checking (and possibly correction) can be done at operation level, for
example opChecked!"+"(x, y, overflow) adds two integrals x and
y and sets overflow to true if an overflow occurred. The flag overflow
(a bool passed by reference) is not touched if the operation succeeded, so the
same flag can be reused for a sequence of operations and tested at the end.
Issuing individual checked operations is flexible and efficient but often
tedious. The Checked facility offers encapsulated integral wrappers that
do all checking internally and have configurable behavior upon erroneous
results. For example, Checked!int is a type that behaves like int but aborts
execution immediately whenever involved in an operation that produces the
arithmetically wrong result. The accompanying convenience function checked uses type deduction to convert a value x of integral type T to
Checked!T by means of checked(x). For example:

These policies may be used alone, e.g. Checked!(uint, WithNaN) defines a
uint-like type that reaches a stable NaN state for all erroneous operations.
They may also be "stacked" on top of each other, owing to the property that a
checked integral emulates an actual integral, which means another checked
integral can be built on top of it. Some combinations of interest include:

The hook's members are looked up statically in a Design by Introspection manner
and are all optional. The table below illustrates the members that a hook type
may define and their influence over the behavior of the Checked type using it.
In the table, hook is an alias for Hook if the type Hook does not
introduce any state, or an object of type Hook otherwise.

void main() { import std.experimental.checkedint, std.stdio; writeln((checked(5) + 7).get); // 12 writeln((checked(10) * 1000 * 1000 * 1000).get); // Overflow }Similarly, checked(-1) > uint(0) aborts execution (even though the built-in comparison int(-1) > uint(0) is surprisingly

`true`

due to language's
conversion rules modeled after C). Thus, Checked!int is a virtually drop-in
replacement for int useable in debug builds, to be replaced by int in
release mode if efficiency demands it.
Checked has customizable behavior with the help of a second type parameter,
Hook. Depending on what methods Hook defines, core operations on the
underlying integral may be verified for overflow or completely redefined. If
Hook defines no method at all and carries no state, there is no change in
behavior, i.e. Checked!(int, void) is a wrapper around int that adds no
customization at all.
This module provides a few predefined hooks (below) that add useful behavior to
Checked:
Abort | fails every incorrect operation with a message to std.stdio. stderr followed by a call to assert(0). It is the default second parameter, i.e. Checked!short is the same as Checked!(short, Abort). |

Warn | prints incorrect operations to std.stdio.stderr but otherwise preserves the built-in behavior. |

ProperCompare | fixes the comparison operators ==, !=, <, <=, >, and >= to return correct results in all circumstances, at a slight cost in efficiency. For example, Checked!(uint, ProperCompare)(1) > -1 is true, which is not the case for the built-in comparison. Also, comparing numbers for equality with floating-point numbers only passes if the integral can be converted to the floating-point number precisely, so as to preserve transitivity of equality. |

WithNaN | reserves a special "Not a Number" (NaN) value akin to the homonym value reserved for floating-point values. Once a Checked!(X, WithNaN) gets this special value, it preserves and propagates it until reassigned. isNaN can be used to query whether the object is not a number. |

Saturate | implements saturating arithmetic, i.e. Checked!(int, Saturate) "stops" at int.max for all operations that would cause an int to overflow toward infinity, and at int.min for all operations that would correspondingly overflow toward negative infinity. |

Checked!(Checked!int, ProperCompare) |

defines an int with fixed comparison operators that will fail with assert(0) upon overflow. (Recall that Abort is the default policy.) The order in which policies are combined is important because the outermost policy (ProperCompare in this case) has the first crack at intercepting an operator. The converse combination Checked!(Checked!(int, ProperCompare)) is meaningless because Abort will intercept comparison and will fail without giving ProperCompare a chance to intervene. |

Checked!(Checked!(int, ProperCompare), WithNaN) |

defines an int-like type that supports a NaN value. For values that are not NaN, comparison works properly. Again the composition order is important; Checked!(Checked!(int, WithNaN), ProperCompare) does not have good semantics because ProperCompare intercepts comparisons before the numbers involved are tested for NaN. |

Hook member | Semantics in Checked!(T, Hook) |
---|---|

defaultValue | If defined, Hook.defaultValue!T is used as the default initializer of the payload. |

min | If defined, Hook.min!T is used as the minimum value of the payload. |

max | If defined, Hook.max!T is used as the maximum value of the payload. |

hookOpCast | If defined, hook.hookOpCast!U(get) is forwarded to unconditionally when the payload is to be cast to type U. |

onBadCast | If defined and hookOpCast is not defined,
onBadCast!U(get) is forwarded to when the payload is to be cast to type U
and the cast would lose information or force a change of sign. |

hookOpEquals | If defined, hook.hookOpEquals(get, rhs) is forwarded to unconditionally when the payload is compared for equality against value rhs of integral, floating point, or Boolean type. |

hookOpCmp | If defined, hook.hookOpCmp(get, rhs) is forwarded to unconditionally when the payload is compared for ordering against value rhs of integral, floating point, or Boolean type. |

hookOpUnary | If defined, hook.hookOpUnary!op(get) (where op is the operator symbol) is forwarded to for unary operators - and ~. In addition, for unary operators ++ and --, hook.hookOpUnary!op(payload) is called, where payload is a reference to the value wrapped by Checked so the hook can change it. |

hookOpBinary | If defined, hook.hookOpBinary!op(get, rhs) (where op is the operator symbol and rhs is the right-hand side operand) is forwarded to unconditionally for binary operators +, -, *, /, %, ^^, &, |, ^, <<, >>, and >>>. |

hookOpBinaryRight | If defined, hook.hookOpBinaryRight!op(lhs, get) (where op is the operator symbol and lhs is the left-hand side operand) is forwarded to unconditionally for binary operators +, -, *, /, %, ^^, &, |, ^, <<, >>, and >>>. |

onOverflow | If defined, hook.onOverflow!op(get) is forwarded to for unary operators that overflow but only if hookOpUnary is not defined. Unary ~ does not overflow; unary - overflows only when the most negative value of a signed type is negated, and the result of the hook call is returned. When the increment or decrement operators overflow, the payload is assigned the result of hook.onOverflow!op(get). When a binary operator overflows, the result of hook.onOverflow!op(get, rhs) is returned, but only if Hook does not define hookOpBinary. |

hookOpOpAssign | If defined, hook.hookOpOpAssign!op(payload, rhs) (where op is the operator symbol and rhs is the right-hand side operand) is forwarded to unconditionally for binary operators +=, -=, *=, /=, %=, ^^=, &=, |=, ^=, <<=, >>=, and >>>=. |

onLowerBound | If defined, hook.onLowerBound(value, bound) (where value is the value being assigned) is forwarded to when the result of binary operators +=, -=, *=, /=, %=, ^^=, &=, |=, ^=, <<=, >>=, and >>>= is smaller than the smallest value representable by T. |

onUpperBound | If defined, hook.onUpperBound(value, bound) (where value is the value being assigned) is forwarded to when the result of binary operators +=, -=, *=, /=, %=, ^^=, &=, |=, ^=, <<=, >>=, and >>>= is larger than the largest value representable by T. |

Examples:

int[] concatAndAdd(int[] a, int[] b, int offset) { // Aborts on overflow on size computation auto r = new int[(checked(a.length) + b.length).get]; // Aborts on overflow on element computation foreach (i; 0 .. a.length) r[i] = (a[i] + checked(offset)).get; foreach (i; 0 .. b.length) r[i + a.length] = (b[i] + checked(offset)).get; return r; } writeln(concatAndAdd([1, 2, 3], [4, 5], -1)); // [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]

- U
`opCast`

(U, this _)()

if (isIntegral!U || isFloatingPoint!U || is(U == bool)); - Casting operator to integral, bool, or floating point type. If Hook defines hookOpCast, the call immediately returns hook.hookOpCast!U(get). Otherwise, casting to bool yields get != 0 and casting to another integral that can represent all values of T returns get promoted to U.If a cast to a floating-point type is requested and Hook defines onBadCast, the cast is verified by ensuring get == cast(T) U(get). If that is not true, hook.onBadCast!U(get) is returned. If a cast to an integral type is requested and Hook defines onBadCast, the cast is verified by ensuring get and cast(U) get are the same arithmetic number. (Note that int(-1) and uint(1) are different values arithmetically although they have the same bitwise representation and compare equal by language rules.) If the numbers are not arithmetically equal, hook.onBadCast!U(get) is returned.Examples:
writeln(cast(uint)checked(42)); // 42 writeln(cast(uint)checked!WithNaN(-42)); // uint.max

`rhs`

for equality. If Hook defines hookOpEquals, the function forwards to hook.hookOpEquals(get,`rhs`

). Otherwise, the result of the built-in operation get ==`rhs`

is returned.If U is also an instance of Checked, both hooks (left- and right-hand side) are introspected for the method hookOpEquals. If both define it, priority is given to the left-hand side.Examples:static struct MyHook { static bool thereWereErrors; static bool hookOpEquals(L, R)(L lhs, R rhs) { if (lhs != rhs) return false; static if (isUnsigned!L && !isUnsigned!R) { if (lhs > 0 && rhs < 0) thereWereErrors = true; } else static if (isUnsigned!R && !isUnsigned!L) if (lhs < 0 && rhs > 0) thereWereErrors = true; // Preserve built-in behavior. return true; } } auto a = checked!MyHook(-42); writeln(a); // uint(-42) assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors); MyHook.thereWereErrors = false; writeln(checked!MyHook(uint(-42))); // -42 assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors); static struct MyHook2 { static bool hookOpEquals(L, R)(L lhs, R rhs) { return lhs == rhs; } } MyHook.thereWereErrors = false; writeln(checked!MyHook2(uint(-42))); // a // Hook on left hand side takes precedence, so no errors assert(!MyHook.thereWereErrors);

for ordering. If Hook defines hookOpCmp, the function forwards to hook.hookOpCmp(get,`rhs`

). Otherwise, the result of the built-in comparison operation is returned.If U is also an instance of Checked, both hooks (left- and right-hand side) are introspected for the method hookOpCmp. If both define it, priority is given to the left-hand side.Examples:static struct MyHook { static bool thereWereErrors; static int hookOpCmp(L, R)(L lhs, R rhs) { static if (isUnsigned!L && !isUnsigned!R) { if (rhs < 0 && rhs >= lhs) thereWereErrors = true; } else static if (isUnsigned!R && !isUnsigned!L) { if (lhs < 0 && lhs >= rhs) thereWereErrors = true; } // Preserve built-in behavior. return lhs < rhs ? -1 : lhs > rhs; } } auto a = checked!MyHook(-42); assert(a > uint(42)); assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors); static struct MyHook2 { static int hookOpCmp(L, R)(L lhs, R rhs) { // Default behavior return lhs < rhs ? -1 : lhs > rhs; } } MyHook.thereWereErrors = false; assert(Checked!(uint, MyHook2)(uint(-42)) <= a); //assert(Checked!(uint, MyHook2)(uint(-42)) >= a); // Hook on left hand side takes precedence, so no errors assert(!MyHook.thereWereErrors); assert(a <= Checked!(uint, MyHook2)(uint(-42))); assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors);

(string op)()

if (op == "++" || op == "--"); - Defines unary operators +, -, ~, ++, and --. Unary + is not overridable and always has built-in behavior (returns this). For the others, if Hook defines hookOpUnary,
`opUnary`

forwards to Checked!(typeof(hook.hookOpUnary!op(get)), Hook)(hook.hookOpUnary!op(get)).If Hook does not define hookOpUnary but defines onOverflow,`opUnary`

forwards to hook.onOverflow!op(get) in case an overflow occurs. For ++ and --, the payload is assigned from the result of the call to onOverflow. Note that unary - is considered to overflow if T is a signed integral of 32 or 64 bits and is equal to the most negative value. This is because that value has no positive negation.Examples:static struct MyHook { static bool thereWereErrors; static L hookOpUnary(string x, L)(L lhs) { if (x == "-" && lhs == -lhs) thereWereErrors = true; return -lhs; } } auto a = checked!MyHook(long.min); writeln(a); // -a assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors); auto b = checked!void(42); writeln(++b); // 43

), where payload is a reference to the internally held data so the hook can change it. Otherwise, the operator first evaluates auto result = opBinary!op(payload,`rhs`

).payload, which is subject to the hooks in opBinary. Then, if result is less than Checked!(T, Hook).min and if Hook defines onLowerBound, the payload is assigned from hook.onLowerBound(result, min). If result is greater than Checked!(T, Hook).max and if Hook defines onUpperBound, the payload is assigned from hook.onUpperBound(result, min). In all other cases, the built-in behavior is carried out.Parameters:op The operator involved (without the "=", e.g. "+" for "+=" etc) Rhs `rhs`

The right-hand side of the operator (left-hand side is this) Returns:A reference to this.Examples:static struct MyHook { static bool thereWereErrors; static T onLowerBound(Rhs, T)(Rhs rhs, T bound) { thereWereErrors = true; return bound; } static T onUpperBound(Rhs, T)(Rhs rhs, T bound) { thereWereErrors = true; return bound; } } auto x = checked!MyHook(byte.min); x -= 1; assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors); MyHook.thereWereErrors = false; x = byte.max; x += 1; assert(MyHook.thereWereErrors);

- struct
`ProperCompare`

; - Hook that provides arithmetically correct comparisons for equality and ordering. Comparing an object of type Checked!(X,
`ProperCompare`

) against another integral (for equality or ordering) ensures that no surprising conversions from signed to unsigned integral occur before the comparison. Using Checked!(X,`ProperCompare`

) on either side of a comparison for equality against a floating-point number makes sure the integral can be properly converted to the floating point type, thus making sure equality is transitive.Examples:alias opEqualsProper = ProperCompare.hookOpEquals; assert(opEqualsProper(42, 42)); assert(opEqualsProper(42.0, 42.0)); assert(opEqualsProper(42u, 42)); assert(opEqualsProper(42, 42u)); writeln(-1); // 4294967295u assert(!opEqualsProper(-1, 4294967295u)); assert(!opEqualsProper(const uint(-1), -1)); assert(!opEqualsProper(uint(-1), -1.0)); writeln(3_000_000_000U); // -1_294_967_296 assert(!opEqualsProper(3_000_000_000U, -1_294_967_296));

`hookOpEquals`

(L, R)(L`lhs`

); - Hook for == and != that ensures comparison against integral values has the behavior expected by the usual arithmetic rules. The built-in semantics yield surprising behavior when comparing signed values against unsigned values for equality, for example uint.max == -1 or -1_294_967_296 == 3_000_000_000u. The call
`hookOpEquals`

(x, y) returns true if and only if x and y represent the same arithmetic number.If one of the numbers is an integral and the other is a floating-point number,`hookOpEquals`

(x, y) returns true if and only if the integral can be converted exactly (without approximation) to the floating-point number. This is in order to preserve transitivity of equality: if`hookOpEquals`

`hookOpCmp`

(x, y) returns -1 if and only if x is smaller than y in abstract arithmetic sense.If one of the numbers is an integral and the other is a floating-point number, hookOpEquals(x, y) returns a floating-point number that is -1 if x < y, 0 if x == y, 1 if x > y, and NaN if the floating-point number is NaN.Parameters:L `lhs`

- struct
`WithNaN`

; - Hook that reserves a special value as a "Not a Number" representative. For signed integrals, the reserved value is T.min. For signed integrals, the reserved value is T.max.The default value of a Checked!(X,
`WithNaN`

) is its NaN value, so care must be taken that all variables are explicitly initialized. Any arithmetic and logic operation involving at least on NaN becomes NaN itself. All of a == b, a < b, a > b, a <= b, a >= b yield false if at least one of a and b is NaN.Examples:auto x1 = Checked!(int, WithNaN)(); assert(x1.isNaN); writeln(x1.get); // int.min assert(x1 != x1); assert(!(x1 < x1)); assert(!(x1 > x1)); writeln(x1); // x1 ++x1; assert(x1.isNaN); writeln(x1.get); // int.min --x1; assert(x1.isNaN); writeln(x1.get); // int.min x1 = 42; assert(!x1.isNaN); writeln(x1); // x1 assert(x1 <= x1); assert(x1 >= x1); static assert(x1.min == int.min + 1); x1 += long(int.max);

`opChecked`

(string x, L, R)(const L`lhs`

, ref bool`error`

)

if (isIntegral!L && isIntegral!R); - Defines binary operations with overflow checking for any two integral types. The result type obeys the language rules (even when they may be counterintuitive), and overflow is set if an overflow occurs (including inadvertent change of signedness, e.g. -1 is converted to uint). Conceptually the behavior is:
- Perform the operation in infinite precision
- If the infinite-precision result fits in the result type, return it and do not touch overflow
- Otherwise, set overflow to true and return an unspecified value

Parameters:x The binary operator involved, e.g. / L `lhs`

The left-hand side of the operator R `rhs`

The right-hand side of the operator bool `error`

The `error`

indicator (assigned true in case there's an`error`
