Detailed Description

Sequential types represents "arrays" of types. This is a super class for array, vector, and pointer types.


Function Documentation

LLVMTypeRef LLVMArrayType ( LLVMTypeRef  ElementType,
unsigned  ElementCount 
)

Create a fixed size array type that refers to a specific type.

The created type will exist in the context that its element type exists in.

See also:
llvm::ArrayType::get()

Definition at line 456 of file Core.cpp.

References llvm::ArrayType::get(), llvm::unwrap(), and llvm::wrap().

Obtain the length of an array type.

This only works on types that represent arrays.

See also:
llvm::ArrayType::getNumElements()

Definition at line 472 of file Core.cpp.

Obtain the type of elements within a sequential type.

This works on array, vector, and pointer types.

See also:
llvm::SequentialType::getElementType()

Definition at line 468 of file Core.cpp.

References llvm::wrap().

Obtain the address space of a pointer type.

This only works on types that represent pointers.

See also:
llvm::PointerType::getAddressSpace()

Definition at line 476 of file Core.cpp.

Obtain the number of elements in a vector type.

This only works on types that represent vectors.

See also:
llvm::VectorType::getNumElements()

Definition at line 480 of file Core.cpp.

LLVMTypeRef LLVMPointerType ( LLVMTypeRef  ElementType,
unsigned  AddressSpace 
)

Create a pointer type that points to a defined type.

The created type will exist in the context that its pointee type exists in.

See also:
llvm::PointerType::get()

Definition at line 460 of file Core.cpp.

References llvm::PointerType::get(), llvm::unwrap(), and llvm::wrap().

LLVMTypeRef LLVMVectorType ( LLVMTypeRef  ElementType,
unsigned  ElementCount 
)

Create a vector type that contains a defined type and has a specific number of elements.

The created type will exist in the context thats its element type exists in.

See also:
llvm::VectorType::get()

Definition at line 464 of file Core.cpp.

References llvm::VectorType::get(), llvm::unwrap(), and llvm::wrap().
