An initial uppercase identifier.

UIdentifierSource Codeshared UIdentifier(String name, Boolean usePrefix = ...)
  • usePrefix = = fal
internalSource Codeshared internal(String name, Boolean usePrefix = ...)

An initial uppercase identifier generated by the compiler (typechecker or backend). These identifiers may also contain dollar signs ('$'), to avoid collisions with regular identifiers.

  • usePrefix = = fal
prefixSource Codeshared actual String prefix

The prefix for this kind of identifier – \i for a lowercase identifier, \I for an uppercase identifier.

copySource Codeshared actual UIdentifier copy(String name, Boolean usePrefix)

Creates a copy of this identifier. All parameters default to the value of the corresponding parameter of this instance.

equalsSource Codeshared actual Boolean equals(Object that)

Determine if two values are equal.

For any two non-null objects x and y, x.equals(y) may be written as:

x == y 

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.

Note that an implementation of equals() that always returns false does satisfy the constraints given above, as long as the class does not inherit Identifiable. Therefore, in very rare cases where there is no reasonable definition of value equality for a class, for example, function references (Callable), it is acceptable for equals() to be defined to return false for every argument.

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.

visitSource Codeshared actual void visit(Visitor visitor)

Visit this node with the given visitor. Calls the appropriate visitX method on the visitor.
