Module Nametab

This module contains the tables for globalization.

These globalization tables associate internal object references to qualified names (qualid). There are three classes of names:

Most functions in this module fall into one of the following categories:

type object_prefix = {
obj_dir : Names.DirPath.t;
obj_mp : Names.ModPath.t;

Object prefix morally contains the "prefix" naming of an object to be stored by library, where obj_dir is the "absolute" path and obj_mp is the current "module" prefix.

Thus, for an object living inside Module A. Section B. the prefix would be:

{ obj_dir = "A.B"; obj_mp = "A"; }

Note that obj_dir is a "path" that is to say, as opposed to obj_mp which is a single module name.

val eq_op : object_prefix -> object_prefix -> bool
module GlobDirRef : sig ... end

to this type are mapped DirPath.t's in the nametab

exception GlobalizationError of Libnames.qualid
val error_global_not_found : -> Libnames.qualid -> 'a

Raises a globalization error

Register visibility of things

The visibility can be registered either

type visibility =
| Until of int
| Exactly of int
val map_visibility : (int -> int) -> visibility -> visibility
val push_modtype : visibility -> Libnames.full_path -> Names.ModPath.t -> unit
val push_module : visibility -> Names.DirPath.t -> Names.ModPath.t -> unit
val push_dir : visibility -> Names.DirPath.t -> GlobDirRef.t -> unit
val push_universe : visibility -> Libnames.full_path -> Univ.UGlobal.t -> unit

Deprecation and user warn info

The following functions perform globalization of qualified names

These functions globalize a (partially) qualified name or fail with Not_found

val locate_constant : Libnames.qualid -> Names.Constant.t
val locate_abbreviation : Libnames.qualid -> Globnames.abbreviation
val locate_modtype : Libnames.qualid -> Names.ModPath.t
val locate_dir : Libnames.qualid -> GlobDirRef.t
val locate_module : Libnames.qualid -> Names.ModPath.t
val locate_section : Libnames.qualid -> Names.DirPath.t
val locate_universe : Libnames.qualid -> Univ.UGlobal.t

Remove the binding to an abbreviation

val remove_abbreviation : Libnames.full_path -> Globnames.abbreviation -> unit

These functions globalize user-level references into global references, like locate and co, but raise a nice error message in case of failure

val global_inductive : Libnames.qualid -> Names.inductive

These functions locate all global references with a given suffix; if qualid is valid as such, it comes first in the list

val locate_all : Libnames.qualid -> Names.GlobRef.t list
val locate_extended_all : Libnames.qualid -> Globnames.extended_global_reference list
val locate_extended_all_dir : Libnames.qualid -> GlobDirRef.t list
val locate_extended_all_modtype : Libnames.qualid -> Names.ModPath.t list
val locate_extended_all_module : Libnames.qualid -> Names.ModPath.t list
val completion_canditates : Libnames.qualid -> Globnames.extended_global_reference list

Experimental completion support, API is _unstable_

completion_canditates qualid will return the list of global references that have qualid as a prefix. UI usually will want to compose this with shortest_qualid_of_global

Mapping a full path to a global reference

val global_of_path : Libnames.full_path -> Names.GlobRef.t
These functions tell if the given absolute name is already taken
val exists_cci : Libnames.full_path -> bool
val exists_modtype : Libnames.full_path -> bool
val exists_module : Names.DirPath.t -> bool
val exists_dir : Names.DirPath.t -> bool
val exists_universe : Libnames.full_path -> bool
These functions locate qualids into full user names
val full_name_modtype : Libnames.qualid -> Libnames.full_path
val full_name_module : Libnames.qualid -> Names.DirPath.t
Reverse lookup

Finding user names corresponding to the given internal name

Returns the full path bound to a global reference or syntactic definition, and the (full) dirpath associated to a module path

val path_of_abbreviation : Globnames.abbreviation -> Libnames.full_path
val path_of_global : Names.GlobRef.t -> Libnames.full_path
val dirpath_of_module : Names.ModPath.t -> Names.DirPath.t
val path_of_modtype : Names.ModPath.t -> Libnames.full_path
val path_of_universe : Univ.UGlobal.t -> Libnames.full_path

A universe_id might not be registered with a corresponding user name.

  • raises Not_found

    if the universe was not introduced by the user.

Returns in particular the dirpath or the basename of the full path associated to global reference

val dirpath_of_global : Names.GlobRef.t -> Names.DirPath.t
val basename_of_global : Names.GlobRef.t -> Names.Id.t
val pr_global_env : Names.Id.Set.t -> Names.GlobRef.t -> Pp.t

Printing of global references using names as short as possible.

  • raises Not_found

    when the reference is not in the global tables.

The shortest_qualid functions given an object with user_name Coq.A.B.x, try to find the shortest among x, B.x, A.B.x and Coq.A.B.x that denotes the same object.

val shortest_qualid_of_global : ?loc:Loc.t -> Names.Id.Set.t -> Names.GlobRef.t -> Libnames.qualid
val shortest_qualid_of_abbreviation : ?loc:Loc.t -> Names.Id.Set.t -> Globnames.abbreviation -> Libnames.qualid
val shortest_qualid_of_modtype : ?loc:Loc.t -> Names.ModPath.t -> Libnames.qualid
val shortest_qualid_of_module : ?loc:Loc.t -> Names.ModPath.t -> Libnames.qualid
val shortest_qualid_of_universe : ?loc:Loc.t -> 'u Names.Id.Map.t -> Univ.UGlobal.t -> Libnames.qualid

In general we have a UnivNames.universe_binders around rather than a Id.Set.t
