Operators

This section describes introspection of EdgeDB operators. Much like functions, operators have parameters and return types as well as a few other features.

Introspection of the schema::Operator:

Copy
db> 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
with module schema
select ObjectType {
    name,
    links: {
        name,
    },
    properties: {
        name,
    }
}
filter .name = 'schema::Operator';
{
    Object {
        name: 'schema::Operator',
        links: {
            Object { name: '__type__' },
            Object { name: 'annotations' },
            Object { name: 'params' },
            Object { name: 'return_type' }
        },
        properties: {
            Object { name: 'id' },
            Object { name: 'name' },
            Object { name: 'operator_kind' },
            Object { name: 'return_typemod' }
        }
    }
}

Since params are quite important to operators, here’s their structure:

Copy
db> 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
... 
with module schema
select ObjectType {
    name,
    links: {
        name,
    },
    properties: {
        name,
    }
}
filter .name = 'schema::Parameter';
{
    Object {
        name: 'schema::Parameter',
        links: {
            Object { name: '__type__' },
            Object { name: 'type' }
        },
        properties: {
            Object { name: 'default' },
            Object { name: 'id' },
            Object { name: 'kind' },
            Object { name: 'name' },
            Object { name: 'num' },
            Object { name: 'typemod' }
        }
    }
}

Introspection of the and operator:

...

with module schema
select Operator {
    name,
    operator_kind,
    annotations: { name, @value },
    params: {
        kind,
        name,
        num,
        typemod,
        type: { name },
        default,
    },
    return_typemod,
    return_type: { name },
}
filter .name = 'std::AND';
{
    Object {
        name: 'std::AND',
        operator_kind: 'Infix',
        annotations: {},
        params: {
            Object {
                kind: 'PositionalParam',
                name: 'a',
                num: 0,
                typemod: 'SingletonType',
                type: Object { name: 'std::bool' },
                default: {}
            },
            Object {
                kind: 'PositionalParam',
                name: 'b',
                num: 1,
                typemod: 'SingletonType',
                type: Object { name: 'std::bool' },
                default: {}
            }
        },
        return_typemod: 'SingletonType',
        return_type: Object { name: 'std::bool' }
    }
}
