Trait std::ops::Shl1.0.0[][src]

#[lang = "shl"]
pub trait Shl<RHS = Self> { type Output;
fn shl(self, rhs: RHS) -> Self::Output; }

The left shift operator <<. Note that because this trait is implemented for all integer types with multiple right-hand-side types, Rust's type checker has special handling for _ << _, setting the result type for integer operations to the type of the left-hand-side operand. This means that though a << b and a.shl(b) are one and the same from an evaluation standpoint, they are different when it comes to type inference.


An implementation of Shl that lifts the << operation on integers to a wrapper around usize.

use std::ops::Shl;

#[derive(PartialEq, Debug)]
struct Scalar(usize);

impl Shl<Scalar> for Scalar {
    type Output = Self;

    fn shl(self, Scalar(rhs): Self) -> Scalar {
        let Scalar(lhs) = self;
        Scalar(lhs << rhs)

assert_eq!(Scalar(4) << Scalar(2), Scalar(16));Run

An implementation of Shl that spins a vector leftward by a given amount.

use std::ops::Shl;

#[derive(PartialEq, Debug)]
struct SpinVector<T: Clone> {
    vec: Vec<T>,

impl<T: Clone> Shl<usize> for SpinVector<T> {
    type Output = Self;

    fn shl(self, rhs: usize) -> SpinVector<T> {
        // Rotate the vector by `rhs` places.
        let (a, b) = self.vec.split_at(rhs);
        let mut spun_vector: Vec<T> = vec![];
        SpinVector { vec: spun_vector }

assert_eq!(SpinVector { vec: vec![0, 1, 2, 3, 4] } << 2,
           SpinVector { vec: vec![2, 3, 4, 0, 1] });Run

Associated Types
