Module Lisp.Attribute

Primus Lisp Attributes.

This module enables declaring new attributes as well as accessing definition attributes via the knowledge base using Attribute.Set.slot.

type 'a t

the abstract type the enables access to an attribute.

type set

the abstract type denoting a set of attributes

module Parse : sig ... end

The interface to the abstract parse tree.

val declare : ?desc:string -> ?package:string -> domain:'a Bap_core_theory.KB.domain -> parse:( package:string -> Parse.tree list -> 'a ) -> string -> 'a t

declare ~domain ~parse name declares a new attribute.

The domain defines the domain structure of the attribute carrier. When attributes are accumulated they should agree with respect to the domain ordering. The domain's join function will be used to accumulate attributes of a definition that are declared on different scopes.

The parse function denotes the concrete syntax of the attribute, it is called for each declaration of the form

(<name> <payload>v} and applied to the
            {v<payload>v}. The result is then merged with the existing
            value of this attribute using the join function from the
            provided domain.
module Set : sig ... end

The set of attributes.
