hext-core

Hext core, a completing yet alternative standard library for Haxe.

Compilation Flags

-D HEXT_DEBUG which enables debug mode. Setting this flag will tell the hext.Throwables to include full Call- and ExceptionStack information and hext.threading.IExecutors to not catch exceptions. Though this can be helpful during development, it should not be enabled for production/releases as the operations are expensive.

-D HEXT_PERFORMANCE which will disable runtime checks in hext.io.Bits abstracts. This gives a little performance boost to the cost of safety.

-D HEXT_WIN which will tell the library that we are compiling on a Windows system. This flag is used in hext.vm.Lock class, as SemaphoreSlim doesn't work on non-Windows environments.

Nullability

Haxe has a special type Null<T> which is mainly for documentation purpose and for static platforms (so e.g. Int can be null). You can find its typedef here: http://api.haxe.org/Null.html

Trying to follow the documentation aspect, all methods that accept a nullable value (e.g. Null<Bytes>) can safely be called with null - it is ensured they will not throw an Exception or Error.

On the other hand, when a methods returns a value of type Null<T> that means, that the returned value may be null.
