SequenceType

SequenceType[var]

represents a type parameterized by var that refers to a sequence of zero or more types.

Details

  • SequenceType does not evaluate on its own but can be used inside functions that accept types, including Typed, FunctionDeclaration, etc.
  • SequenceType is used to specify the type of functions that take a variable number of arguments.
  • A function definition that uses SequenceType is typically accompanied by one or more definitions that use a fixed number of arguments.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

Represent the type of a function that accepts a "MachineInteger" type and a sequence of types; it returns a "MachineInteger":

Represent a declaration of a function with this type:

This function declaration takes a single "MachineInteger":

Compile a program that calls the declarations with three arguments:

Compile another program that calls the declarations but with a different number of arguments:
