Object hashes with a limitation on the type of values

role QuantHash does Associative { }

The QuantHash role provides the basic functionality shared by the Setty, Baggy and Mixy roles. These provide object hashes whose values are limited in some way.

QuantHashes are what set operators use internally.

Methods

method hash

method hash()

Coerces the QuantHash object to a Hash (by stringifying the objects for the keys) with the values of the hash limited to the same limitation as QuantHash, and returns that.

method Hash

method Hash()

Coerces the QuantHash object to a Hash (by stringifying the objects for the keys) without any limitations on the values, and returns that.

method of

method of()

Returns the type of value a value of this QuantHash may have. This is typically Bool for Setty, UInt for Baggy or Real for Mixy roles.

method keyof

method keyof()

Returns the type of value a key of this subclass of QuantHash may have. This is typically Mu, which is also the default for punned QuantHashes.

method Capture

Defined as

method Capture()

Returns the object as a Capture by previously coercing it to a Hash.

method Setty

method Setty(--> Setty:D)

Coerce the QuantHash object to the equivalent object that uses the Setty role. Note that for Mixy type coercion items with negative values will be skipped.

my %b is Bag = one => 1two => 2;
say %b.Setty# OUTPUT: «Set(one two)␤» 
my %m is Mix = one => 1minus => -1;
say %m.Setty# OUTPUT: «Set(one)␤»

method Baggy

method Baggy(--> Baggy:D)

Coerce the QuantHash object to the equivalent object that uses the Baggy role. Note that for Mixy type coercion items with negative values will be skipped.

my %s is Set = <one two>;
say %s.Baggy# OUTPUT: «Bag(one two)␤» 
my %m is Mix = one => 1minus => -1;
say %m.Baggy# OUTPUT: «Bag(one)␤»

method Mixy

method Mixy(--> Mixy:D)

Coerce the QuantHash object to the equivalent object that uses the Mixy role.

my %s is Set = <one two>;
say %s.Mixy# OUTPUT: «Mix(one two)␤» 
my %b is Bag = one => 1two => 2;
say %b.Mixy# OUTPUT: «Mix(one two(2))␤»
