Module Nothing = Nothing


type t = Nothing0.t

Having [@@deriving enumerate] may seem strange due to the fact that generated val all : t list is the empty list, so it seems like it could be of no use.

This may be true if you always expect your type to be Nothing.t, but [@@deriving enumerate] can be useful if you have a type which you expect to change over time. For example, you may have a program which has to interact with multiple servers which are possibly at different versions. It may be useful in this program to have a variant type which enumerates the ways in which the servers may differ. When all the servers are at the same version, you can change this type to Nothing.t and code which uses an enumeration of the type will continue to work correctly.

This is a similar issue to the identifiability of Nothing.t. As discussed below, another case where [@deriving enumerate] could be useful is when this type is part of some larger type.

val all : t list
val unreachable_code : t -> _

Because there are no values of type Nothing.t, a piece of code that has a value of type Nothing.t must be unreachable. In such an unreachable piece of code, one can use unreachable_code to give the code whatever type one needs. For example:

      let f (r : (int, Nothing.t) Result.t) : int =
        match r with
        | Ok i -> i
        | Error n -> Nothing.unreachable_code n

val compare : t -> t -> int
val min : t -> t -> t
val max : t -> t -> t
val ascending : t -> t -> int

ascending is identical to compare. descending x y = ascending y x. These are intended to be mnemonic when used like List.sort ~cmp:ascending and List.sort ~cmp:descending, since they cause the list to be sorted in ascending or descending order, respectively.

val descending : t -> t -> int
val between : t -> low:t -> high:t -> bool
val clamp_exn : t -> min:t -> max:t -> t

clamp_exn t ~min ~max returns t', the closest value to t such that between t' ~low:min ~high:max is true.

Raises if not (min <= max).
