DESCRIPTION

WARNING: WebAssembly and Wasmtime are a moving target and the interface for these modules is under active development. Use with caution.

This class represents a Wasm type.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

 my $valtype = Wasm::Wasmtime::ValType->new($type);

Creates a new value type instance. Acceptable values for $type are:

i32

Signed 32 bit integer.

i64

Signed 64 bit integer.

f32

Floating point.

f64

Double precision floating point.

anyref

A pointer.

funcref

A function pointer.

METHODS

kind

 my $kind = $valtype->kind;

Returns the value type as a string (ie i32).

kind_num

 my $kind = $valtype->kind_num;

Returns the number used internally to represent the type.

to_string

 my $string = $valtype->to_string;

Converts the type into a string for diagnostics. For this class, this does the same thing as the kind method.
