A lazy specification statement, that is, a member name, optionally followed by one or more parameter lists, and specified by a lazy specifier.

LazySpecification(LIdentifier name, LazySpecifier specifier, Parameters[] parameterLists = [])
  • name

    The name of the member being specified.

  • specifier

    The specifier.

  • parameterLists = []

    The parameter lists, if any.

childrenSource Codeshared actual [LIdentifier, <Parameters|LazySpecifier>*] children

The child nodes of this node.

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.

Refines Object.hash
nameSource Codeshared actual LIdentifier name

The name of the member being specified.

parameterListsSource Codeshared Parameters[] parameterLists

The parameter lists, if any.

specifierSource Codeshared actual LazySpecifier specifier

The specifier.

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.
