Class: Scope

Numbas.jme.Scope

new Scope(scopes)

A JME evaluation environment. Stores variable, function, and ruleset definitions.

A scope may have a parent; elements of the scope are resolved by searching up through the hierarchy of parents until a match is found.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
scopes Array.<Numbas.jme.Scope>

Either: nothing, in which case this scope has no parents; a parent Scope object; a list whose first element is a parent scope, and the second element is a dictionary of extra variables/functions/rulesets to store in this scope.

Properties:
Name Type Description
variables object.<Numbas.jme.token>

Dictionary of variables defined at this level in the scope. To resolve a variable in the scope, use Numbas.jme.Scope.getVariable.

functions object.<Array.<Numbas.jme.funcObj>>

Dictionary of functions defined at this level in the scope. Function names map to lists of functions: there can be more than one function for each name because of multiple dispatch. To resolve a function name in the scope, use Numbas.jme.Scope.getFunction.

rulesets object.<Numbas.jme.rules.Ruleset>

Dictionary of rulesets defined at this level in the scope. To resolve a ruleset in the scope, use Numbas.jme.Scope.getRuleset.

deleted Numbas.jme.scope_deletions

Names of deleted variables/functions/rulesets.

question Numbas.Question

The question this scope belongs to.
