v.scanner #

fn new_scanner #

fn new_scanner(text string, comments_mode CommentsMode, pref_ &pref.Preferences) &Scanner

new scanner from string.

fn new_scanner_file #

fn new_scanner_file(file_path string, comments_mode CommentsMode, pref_ &pref.Preferences) !&Scanner

new scanner from file.

fn new_silent_scanner #

fn new_silent_scanner() &Scanner

new_silent_scanner returns a new scanner instance, setup to just set internal flags and append errors to its .errors field, without aborting the program. It is mainly useful for programs that want to lex potentially invalid V source code repeatedly, and do their own error handling (checking .errors.len).

enum CommentsMode #

enum CommentsMode {

The different kinds of scanner modes:

.skip_comments - simplest/fastest, just ignores all comments early. This mode is used by the compiler itself.

.parse_comments is used by vfmt. Ideally it should handle inline /* */ comments too, i.e. it returns every kind of comment as a new token.

.toplevel_comments is used by vdoc, parses only top level ones that are outside structs/enums/fns.

fn (Scanner) free #

fn (mut s Scanner) free()

fn (Scanner) set_is_inside_toplevel_statement #

fn (mut s Scanner) set_is_inside_toplevel_statement(newstate bool)

Note: this is called by v's parser

fn (Scanner) set_current_tidx #

fn (mut s Scanner) set_current_tidx(cidx int)

fn (Scanner) scan #

fn (mut s Scanner) scan() token.Token

fn (Scanner) peek_token #

fn (s &Scanner) peek_token(n int) token.Token

fn (Scanner) text_scan #

fn (mut s Scanner) text_scan() token.Token

text_scan returns a single token from the text, and updates the scanner state, so that it will be ready to get the next token right after that. See also Scanner.prepare_for_new_text and new_silent_scanner()

fn (Scanner) ident_string #

fn (mut s Scanner) ident_string() string

ident_string returns a lexed V string, starting from the current position in the text it supports r'strings', c'strings', interpolated 'strings' and "strings", and hex escapes in them (except in the r'strings' where the content is returned verbatim)

fn (Scanner) ident_char #

fn (mut s Scanner) ident_char() string

/ ident_char is called when a backtick "single-char" is parsed from the code / it is needed because some runes (chars) are written with escape sequences / the string it returns should be a standardized, simplified version of the character / as it would appear in source code / possibilities: / single chars like a, b => 'a', 'b' / escaped single chars like \\, \``, \n => '\\', '', '\n' / escaped single hex bytes like \x01, \x61 => '\x01', 'a' / escaped unicode literals like \u2605 / escaped unicode 32 literals like \U00002605 / escaped utf8 runes in hex like \xe2\x98\x85 => (★) / escaped utf8 runes in octal like \342\230\205 => (★)

fn (Scanner) current_pos #

fn (mut s Scanner) current_pos() token.Pos

fn (Scanner) note #

fn (mut s Scanner) note(msg string)

fn (Scanner) add_error_detail #

fn (mut s Scanner) add_error_detail(msg string)

call this before calling error or warn

fn (Scanner) add_error_detail_with_pos #

fn (mut s Scanner) add_error_detail_with_pos(msg string, pos token.Pos)

fn (Scanner) warn #

fn (mut s Scanner) warn(msg string)

fn (Scanner) warn_with_pos #

fn (mut s Scanner) warn_with_pos(msg string, pos token.Pos)

fn (Scanner) error #

fn (mut s Scanner) error(msg string)

fn (Scanner) error_with_pos #

fn (mut s Scanner) error_with_pos(msg string, pos token.Pos)

fn (Scanner) prepare_for_new_text #

fn (mut s Scanner) prepare_for_new_text(text string)

prepare_for_new_text resets the internal state of the scanner, so that it can be reused for scanning the new text, given by text, using a subsequent s.scan_text() call, to get the token corresponding to the text.
