Scala example source code file (HasFlags.scala)

This example Scala source code file (HasFlags.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

absoverride, accessboundarytype, boolean, defaultmethod, list, long, second, string, stringbuilder, use

The HasFlags.scala Scala example source code

package scala
package reflect
package internal

import Flags._

/** Common code utilized by Modifiers (which carry the flags associated
 *  with Trees) and Symbol.
trait HasFlags {
  type AccessBoundaryType
  type AnnotationType

  /** Though both Symbol and Modifiers widen this method to public, it's
   *  defined protected here to give us the option in the future to route
   *  flag methods through accessors and disallow raw flag manipulation.
   *  And after that, perhaps, on some magical day: a typesafe enumeration.
  protected def flags: Long

  /** Access level encoding: there are three scala flags (PRIVATE, PROTECTED,
   *  and LOCAL) which combine with value privateWithin (the "foo" in private[foo])
   *  to define from where an entity can be accessed.  The meanings are as follows:
   *  PRIVATE     access restricted to class only.
   *  PROTECTED   access restricted to class and subclasses only.
   *  LOCAL       can only be set in conjunction with PRIVATE or PROTECTED.
   *              Further restricts access to the same object instance.
   *  In addition, privateWithin can be used to set a visibility barrier.
   *  When set, everything contained in the named enclosing package or class
   *  has access.  It is incompatible with PRIVATE or LOCAL, but is additive
   *  with PROTECTED (i.e. if either the flags or privateWithin allow access,
   *  then it is allowed.)
   *  The java access levels translate as follows:
   *  java private:     hasFlag(PRIVATE)                && !hasAccessBoundary
   *  java package:     !hasFlag(PRIVATE | PROTECTED)   && (privateWithin == enclosing package)
   *  java protected:   hasFlag(PROTECTED)              && (privateWithin == enclosing package)
   *  java public:      !hasFlag(PRIVATE | PROTECTED)   && !hasAccessBoundary
