Accessing

Even though it is possible to change the values in the various arrays that define the FunctionDef, you should not do it, unless you like to crash.

-code

Get the byte code array.

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| a + b }.def.code;

-sourceCode

Get the source code string.

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| a + b }.def.sourceCode.postcs;

-context

Get the enclosing FunctionDef or Method.

-findReferences (aSymbol, references)

return a list of all references to a given symbol.

-argNames

Get the Array of Symbols of the argument names.

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| a + b }.def.argNames;

-prototypeFrame

Get the array of default values for argument and temporary variables.

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| a + b }.def.prototypeFrame;

-varNames

Get the Array of Symbols of the local variable names.

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| var x = 9; a + b + x }.def.varNames;

-argumentString (withDefaultValues: true)

Return a string that contains arguments and their default values for embedding in a string

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| a + b }.def.argumentString;

-makeEnvirFromArgs

Get the Array of Symbols of the local variable names.

{ |a = 9, b = 10, c| a + b }.def.makeEnvirFromArgs;
