Scala example source code file (Scopes.scala)

This example Scala source code file (Scopes.scala) is included in my "Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you more easily find Scala source code examples by using tags.

All credit for the original source code belongs to; I'm just trying to make examples easier to find. (For my Scala work, see my Scala examples and tutorials.)

Scala tags/keywords

anyref, iterable, list, memberscope, memberscopeapi, null, scope, scopeapi, scopes, universe

The Scopes.scala Scala example source code

package scala
package reflect
package api

 * <span class="badge badge-red" style="float: right;">EXPERIMENTAL</span>
 * This trait provides support for scopes in the reflection API.
 * A scope object generally maps names to symbols available in a corresponding lexical scope.
 * Scopes can be nested. The base type exposed to the reflection API, however,
 * only exposes a minimal interface, representing a scope as an iterable of symbols.
 * For rare occasions when it is necessary to create a scope manually,
 * e.g., to populate members of [[scala.reflect.api.Types#RefinedType]],
 * there is the `newScopeWith` function.
 * Additional functionality is exposed in member scopes that are returned by
 * `members` and `decls` defined in [[scala.reflect.api.Types#TypeApi]].
 * Such scopes support the `sorted` method, which sorts members in declaration order.
 * @group ReflectionAPI
trait Scopes { self: Universe =>

  /** The base type of all scopes.
   *  @template
   *  @group Scopes
  type Scope >: Null <: AnyRef with ScopeApi

  /** The API that all scopes support
   *  @group API
  trait ScopeApi extends Iterable[Symbol]

  /** The type of member scopes, as in class definitions, for example.
   *  @template
   *  @group Scopes
  type MemberScope >: Null <: AnyRef with MemberScopeApi with Scope

  /** The API that all member scopes support
   *  @group API
  trait MemberScopeApi extends ScopeApi {
    /** Sorts the symbols included in this scope so that:
     *    1) Symbols appear in the linearization order of their owners.
     *    2) Symbols with the same owner appear in same order of their declarations.
     *    3) Synthetic members (e.g. getters/setters for vals/vars) might appear in arbitrary order.
    def sorted: List[Symbol]
