A wrapper that provides metrics for a C/C++ namespace.
Gets a namespace dependency of this element.
Gets the abstractness of this namespace. Abstractness measures the proportion of abstract classes in a namespace relative to the total number of classes in that namespace. A highly abstract namespace (where the metric value is close 1) that is furthermore instable is likely to be useless: the class hierarchy has been over-engineered, and all those abstract classes are not heavily used.
Gets the number of incoming dependencies from other namespaces.
Gets the distance from main sequence of this namespace. This measure intends to capture the tradeoff between abstractness and instability: the ideal situation occurs when the sum of abstractness and instability is one. That is, a namespace is completely abstract and stable (abstractness=1 and instability=0) or it is concrete and instable (abstractness=0 and instability=1). We thus measure the distance from that ideal situation.
Gets the number of outgoing dependencies on other namespaces.
Gets the instability of this namespace. Instability is a measure of how likely a namespace is to be influenced by changes to other namespace. If this metric value is high, it is easily influenced, if it is low, the impact is likely to be minimal. Instability is estimated as the number of outgoing dependencies relative to the total number of dependencies.
Gets the source of this element: either itself or a macro that expanded to this element.
Holds if this namespace may be from source.
Gets a child namespace of this namespace.
Gets a child declaration of this namespace.
Gets a declaration of (part of) this namespace.
Gets a file which declares (part of) this namespace.
Gets a name qualifier for which this is the qualifying namespace or user-defined type. For example: class
Gets the name of a primary CodeQL class to which this element belongs.
Gets the closest
Gets the primary file where this element occurs.
Gets a version of the
Gets the location of the namespace. Most namespaces do not have a single well-defined source location, so a dummy location is returned, unless the namespace has exactly one declaration entry.
Gets the metric namespace.
Gets the simple name of this namespace.
Gets the parent namespace, if any.
Gets the parent scope of this
Gets a comma-separated list of the names of the primary CodeQL classes to which this element belongs.
Gets the qualified name of this namespace. For example:
Holds if this element is named
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
Holds if this namespace is anonymous.
Holds if this
Holds if this
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
Holds if the namespace is inline.
Gets a textual representation of this element.
