Documentation for method
keyof assembled from the following types:
Returns the parameterized key used for the Associative role, which is
Any coerced to
Str by default. This is the class used as second parameter when you use the parameterized version of Associative.
my ;.keyof; #OUTPUT: «(Str(Any))␤»
Returns the type constraint for the keys of the invocant. For normal hashes the method returns the coercion type
(Str(Any)) while for non-string keys hashes the type used in the declaration of the
Hash is returned.
my = 'apples' => 3, 'oranges' => 7; # (no key type specified)say .keyof; # OUTPUT: «(Str(Any))␤»my = 'oranges' => 7; # (keys must be of type Str)say .keyof; # (Str)= 'apples'; # throws exceptionCATCH ;# OUTPUT: «X::TypeCheck::Binding: Type check failed in binding to key; expected Str but got Int (3)␤»my ; # (this time, keys must be of type Int)= 4096;say .keyof; # (Int)
Returns the type of value a key of this subclass of
QuantHash may have. This is typically Mu, which is also the default for punned QuantHashes.
