CodeQL library for C/C++
codeql/cpp-all 0.9.3 ( changelog , source )

Class Folder

A folder that was observed on disk during the build process.

For the example folder name of “/usr/home/me”, the path decomposes to:

  1. “/usr/home” - see getParentContainer.
  2. “me” - see getBaseName.

To get the full path, use getAbsolutePath.

Import path

Direct supertypes

Indirect supertypes

Known direct subtypes



Gets the name of a primary CodeQL class to which this element belongs.


Gets the absolute, canonical path of this container, using forward slashes as path separator.


Gets the primary location of this element.

Inherited predicates


Gets the source of this element: either itself or a macro that expanded to this element.

from Element

Holds if this element may be from source. This predicate holds for all elements, except for those in the dummy file, whose name is the empty string. The dummy file contains declarations that are built directly into the compiler.

from Element

Gets a file or sub-folder in this container.

from Container

Gets a file in this container.

from Container

Gets a sub-folder in this container.

from Container

Gets the base name of this container including extension, that is, the last segment of its absolute path, or the empty string if it has no segments.

from Container

Gets the closest Element enclosing this one.

from Element

Gets the extension of this container, that is, the suffix of its base name after the last dot character, if any.

from Container

Gets the primary file where this element occurs.

from Element

Gets the file in this container that has the given baseName, if any.

from Container

Gets the sub-folder in this container that has the given baseName, if any.

from Container

Gets the parent container of this file or folder, if any.

from Container

Gets the parent scope of this Element, if any. A scope is a Type (Class / Enum), a Namespace, a BlockStmt, a Function, or certain kinds of Statement.

from Element

Gets a comma-separated list of the names of the primary CodeQL classes to which this element belongs.

from ElementBase

Gets the relative path of this file or folder from the root folder of the analyzed source location. The relative path of the root folder itself is the empty string.

from Container

Gets the stem of this container, that is, the prefix of its base name up to (but not including) the last dot character if there is one, or the entire base name if there is not.

from Container

Holds if this element is affected in any way by a macro. All elements that are totally or partially generated by a macro are included, so this is a super-set of isInMacroExpansion.

from Element

Holds if this Element is a part of a template instantiation (but not the template itself).

from Element

Holds if this Element is part of a template template (not if it is part of an instantiation of template). This means it is represented in the database purely as syntax and without guarantees on the presence or correctness of type-based operations such as implicit conversions.

from Element

Holds if this element comes from a macro expansion. Only elements that are entirely generated by a macro are included - for elements that partially come from a macro, see isAffectedByMacro.

from Element

Gets a textual representation of the path of this container.
