Expand description

Define constants on an interpreter.

Constants can be an arbitrary Ruby value. Constants can be defined globally, on a class, or on a module.

Required Associated Types§

source

type Value: Value

Concrete type for Ruby values.

source

type Error

Concrete error type for fallible operations.

Required Methods§

source

fn define_global_constant(
    &mut self,
    constant: &str,
    value: Self::Value
) -> Result<(), Self::Error>

Define a global constant.

Errors

If the given constant name is not valid, an error is returned.

If the interpreter cannot define the constant, an error is returned.

source

fn define_class_constant<T>(
    &mut self,
    constant: &str,
    value: Self::Value
) -> Result<(), Self::Error>where
    T: 'static,

Define a class constant.

The class is specified by the type parameter T.

Errors

If the class named by type T is not defined, an error is returned.

If the given constant name is not valid, an error is returned.

If the interpreter cannot define the constant, an error is returned.

source

fn define_module_constant<T>(
    &mut self,
    constant: &str,
    value: Self::Value
) -> Result<(), Self::Error>where
    T: 'static,

Define a module constant.

The class is specified by the type parameter T.

Errors

If the module named by type T is not defined, an error is returned.

If the given constant name is not valid, an error is returned.

If the interpreter cannot define the constant, an error is returned.
