pub struct Interner<T> { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

Interning data structure generic over the element type.

For the sake of simplicity and correctness we are using a rather naive implementation.

Usage

This is used in order to quite efficiently cache strings and type definitions uniquely identified by their associated type identifiers.

Implementations

Creates a new empty interner.

Interns the given element or returns its associated symbol if it has already been interned.

Returns the symbol of the given element or None if it hasn’t been interned already.

Resolves the original element given its associated symbol or returns None if it has not been interned yet.
