A list of declarations, surrounded by braces.

Unlike class bodies, interface bodies can’t immediately contain runnable code, so the content is just declarations, no statements.

Examples (multi-line):

    shared formal Other plus(Other other);
    shared default void writeString(String string) => print(string);
    shared default void write(Anything that) => writeString(that?.string else "<null>");

InterfaceBody(Declaration[] content)
  • content

    The content of the body.

childrenSource Codeshared actual Declaration[] children

The child nodes of this node.

Refines Body.children ultimately refines Node.children
contentSource Codeshared actual Declaration[] content

The content of the body.

Refines Body.content
hashSource Codeshared actual Integer hash

The hash value of the value, which allows the value to be an element of a hash-based set or key of a hash-based map. Implementations must respect the constraint that:

  • if x==y then x.hash==y.hash.

Therefore, a class which refines equals must also refine hash.

copySource Codeshared InterfaceBody copy(Declaration[] content = ...)
  • content = this.content
equalsSource Codeshared actual Boolean equals(Object that)

Determine if two values are equal. Implementations should respect the constraints that:

  • if x===y then x==y (reflexivity),
  • if x==y then y==x (symmetry),
  • if x==y and y==z then x==z (transitivity).

Furthermore it is recommended that implementations ensure that if x==y then x and y have the same concrete class.

A class which explicitly refines equals() is said to support value equality, and the equality operator == is considered much more meaningful for such classes than for a class which simply inherits the default implementation of identity equality from Identifiable.

transformSource Codeshared actual Result transform<out Result>(Transformer<Result> transformer)

Transform this node with the given transformer by calling the appropriate transformX method on the transformer.

If you have a Node node that’s actually an LIdentifier instance, then the runtime will call LIdentifier.transform; therefore, this method is by nature narrowing. This means that if transformer is a NarrowingTransformer, calling node.transform(transformer) is equivalent to calling transformer.transformNode(node). On the other hand, if transformer is a WideningTransformer, then the two operations are very different.
