Compiler implementation of the D programming language.
This modules implements the serialization of a lambda function. The serialization is computed by visiting the abstract syntax subtree of the given lambda function. The serialization is a string which contains the type of the parameters and the string represantation of the lambda expression.

Source lambdacomp.d

class SerializeVisitor: dmd.visitor.SemanticTimeTransitiveVisitor;
The serialize visitor computes the string representation of a lambda function described by the subtree starting from a func.FuncLiteralDeclaration.dmd.

Limitations only IntegerExps, Enums and function arguments are supported in the lambda function body. The arguments may be of any type (basic types, user defined types), except template instantiations. If a function call, a local variable or a template instance is encountered, the serialization is dropped and the function is considered uncomparable.

void visit(FuncLiteralDeclaration fld);
Entrypoint of the SerializeVisitor.
