41. DECS, AST block to loop

The ast_block_to_loop module implements block to loop conversion as part of the DECS infrastructure.

All functions and symbols are in “ast_block_to_loop” module, use require to get access to it.

41.1. Block to loop conversion

convert_block_to_loop(blk: smart_ptr<ast::Expression>; failOnReturn: bool const; replaceReturnWithContinue: bool const; requireContinueCond: bool const)

argument

argument type

blk

smart_ptr< ast::Expression >

failOnReturn

bool const

replaceReturnWithContinue

bool const

requireContinueCond

bool const

Converts closure block to loop. If failOnReturn is true, then returns are not allowed inside the block. If replaceReturnWithContinue is true, then return cond; are replaced with if cond; continue;. If requireContinueCond is false, then return; is replaced with continue;, otherwise it is an error.
