  1. Overview

A symbol identifies a constant provided by either:

  • another compilation unit; or
  • a top-level module.

* sym_unit is the compilation unit containing the value. * sym_label is the linkage name of the variable.

The label must be globally unique: two compilation units linked in the same program must not share labels.

type t
module T : Identifiable.Thing with type t = t
include Identifiable.Thing with type t := T.t
include Hashtbl.HashedType with type t := T.t
val equal : T.t -> T.t -> bool

The equality predicate used to compare keys.

val hash : T.t -> int

A hashing function on keys. It must be such that if two keys are equal according to equal, then they have identical hash values as computed by hash. Examples: suitable (equal, hash) pairs for arbitrary key types include

  • ((=), hash) for comparing objects by structure (provided objects do not contain floats)
  • ((fun x y -> compare x y = 0), hash) for comparing objects by structure and handling Stdlib.nan correctly
  • ((==), hash) for comparing objects by physical equality (e.g. for mutable or cyclic objects).
include Map.OrderedType with type t := T.t
val compare : T.t -> T.t -> int

A total ordering function over the keys. This is a two-argument function f such that f e1 e2 is zero if the keys e1 and e2 are equal, f e1 e2 is strictly negative if e1 is smaller than e2, and f e1 e2 is strictly positive if e1 is greater than e2. Example: a suitable ordering function is the generic structural comparison function
