Module Declarations

This module defines the internal representation of global declarations. This includes global constants/axioms, mutual inductive definitions, modules and module types

Representation of constants (Definition/Axiom)

Non-universe polymorphic mode polymorphism (Coq 8.2+): inductives and constants hiding inductives are implicitly polymorphic when applied to parameters, on the universes appearing in the whnf of their parameters and their conclusion, in a template style.

In truly universe polymorphic mode, we always use RegularArity.

type template_arity = {
template_level : Sorts.t;
type template_universes = {
template_param_levels : Univ.Level.t option list;
template_context : Univ.ContextSet.t;
type ('a, 'b) declaration_arity =
| RegularArity of 'a
| TemplateArity of 'b

Inlining level of parameters at functor applications. None means no inlining

type inline = int option

A constant can have no body (axiom/parameter), or a transparent body, or an opaque one

type ('a, 'opaque) constant_def =
| Undef of inline(*

a global assumption

| Def of 'a(*

or a transparent global definition

| OpaqueDef of 'opaque(*

or an opaque global definition

| Primitive of CPrimitives.t(*

or a primitive operation

type universes =
| Monomorphic
| Polymorphic of Univ.AbstractContext.t
type typing_flags = {
check_guarded : bool;(*

If false then fixed points and co-fixed points are assumed to be total.

check_positive : bool;(*

If false then inductive types are assumed positive and co-inductive types are assumed productive.

check_universes : bool;(*

If false universe constraints are not checked

conv_oracle :;(*

Unfolding strategies for conversion

share_reduction : bool;(*

Use by-need reduction algorithm

enable_VM : bool;(*

If false, all VM conversions fall back to interpreted ones

enable_native_compiler : bool;(*

If false, all native conversions fall back to VM ones

indices_matter : bool;(*

The universe of an inductive type must be above that of its indices.

impredicative_set : bool;(*

Predicativity of the Set universe.

sprop_allowed : bool;(*

If false, error when encountering SProp.

cumulative_sprop : bool;(*

SProp <= Type

allow_uip : bool;(*

Allow definitional UIP (breaks termination)


The typing_flags are instructions to the type-checker which modify its behaviour. The typing flags used in the type-checking of a constant are tracked in their constant_body so that they can be displayed to the user.

Representation of mutual inductive types in the kernel

Record information: If the type is not a record, then NotRecord If the type is a non-primitive record, then FakeRecord If it is a primitive record, for every type in the block, we get:

The kernel does not exploit the difference between NotRecord and FakeRecord. It is mostly used by extraction, and should be extruded from the kernel at some point.

type record_info =
| NotRecord

type regular_inductive_arity = {

mind_sort : Sorts.t;
type one_inductive_body = {
mind_typename : Names.Id.t;(*

Name of the type: Ii

mind_arity_ctxt : Constr.rel_context;(*

Arity context of Ii. It includes the context of parameters, that is, it has the form paramdecls, realdecls_i such that Ui (see above) is forall realdecls_i, si for some sort si and such that Ii has thus type forall paramdecls, forall realdecls_i, si. The context itself is represented internally as a list in reverse order [realdecl_i{r_i};...;realdecl_i1;paramdecl_m;...;paramdecl_1].

mind_arity : inductive_arity;(*

Arity sort and original user arity

mind_consnames : Names.Id.t array;(*

Names of the constructors: cij

mind_user_lc : Constr.types array;(*

Types of the constructors with parameters: forall params, Tij, where the recursive occurrences of the inductive types in Tij (i.e. in the type of the j-th constructor of the i-th types of the block a shown above) have the form Ind ((mind,0),u), ..., Ind ((mind,n-1),u) for u the canonical abstract instance associated to mind_universes and mind the name to which the inductive block is bound in the environment.

mind_nf_lc : (Constr.rel_context * Constr.types) array;(*

Head normalized constructor types so that their conclusion exposes the inductive type. It includes the parameters, i.e. each component of the array has the form (decls_ij, Ii params realargs_ij) where decls_ij is the concatenation of the context of parameters (possibly with let-ins) and of the arguments of the constructor (possibly with let-ins). This context is internally represented as a list [cstrdecl_ij{q_ij};...;cstrdecl_ij1;paramdecl_m;...;paramdecl_1] such that the constructor in fine has type forall paramdecls, forall cstrdecls_ij, Ii params realargs_ij] with params referring to the assumptions of paramdecls and realargs_ij being the "indices" specific to the constructor.

Module declarations

Functor expressions are forced to be on top of other expressions

type ('ty, 'a) functorize =
| NoFunctor of 'a
| MoreFunctor of Names.MBId.t * 'ty * ('ty'a) functorize

The fully-algebraic module expressions : names, applications, 'with ...'. They correspond to the user entries of non-interactive modules. They will be later expanded into module structures in Mod_typing, and won't play any role into the kernel after that : they are kept only for short module printing and for extraction.

type 'uconstr with_declaration =
| WithMod of Names.Id.t list * Names.ModPath.t
| WithDef of Names.Id.t list * 'uconstr
type 'uconstr module_alg_expr =
| MEident of Names.ModPath.t
| MEapply of 'uconstr module_alg_expr * Names.ModPath.t
| MEwith of 'uconstr module_alg_expr * 'uconstr with_declaration

A component of a module structure

type structure_field_body =
| SFBconst of constant_body
| SFBmind of mutual_inductive_body
| SFBmodule of module_body
| SFBmodtype of module_type_body

A module structure is a list of labeled components.

Note : we may encounter now (at most) twice the same label in a structure_body, once for a module (SFBmodule or SFBmodtype) and once for an object (SFBconst or SFBmind)

and structure_body = (Names.Label.t * structure_field_body) list

A module signature is a structure, with possibly functors on top of it

and module_signature = (module_type_bodystructure_body) functorize

A module expression is an algebraic expression, possibly functorized.

and module_implementation =
| Abstract(*

no accessible implementation

| Algebraic of module_expression(*

non-interactive algebraic expression

| Struct of module_signature(*

interactive body

| FullStruct(*

special case of Struct : the body is exactly mod_type

and 'a generic_module_body = {
mod_mp : Names.ModPath.t;(*

absolute path of the module

mod_expr : 'a;(*


mod_type : module_signature;(*

expanded type

mod_type_alg : module_expression option;(*

algebraic type

mod_delta : Mod_subst.delta_resolver;(*

quotiented set of equivalent constants and inductive names

mod_retroknowledge : 'a module_retroknowledge;

For a module, there are five possible situations:

A module_type_body is just a module_body with no implementation and also an empty mod_retroknowledge. Its mod_type_alg contains the algebraic definition of this module type, or None if it has been built interactively.

and module_type_body = unit generic_module_body
and _ module_retroknowledge =
| ModBodyRK : Retroknowledge.action list -> module_implementation module_retroknowledge
| ModTypeRK : unit module_retroknowledge
