Matcher

extends Object with Serializable

Matches a quoted tree against a quoted pattern tree. A quoted pattern tree may have type and term holes in addition to normal terms.

Semantics:

We use '{..} for expression, '[..] for types and ⟨..⟩ for patterns nested in expressions. The semantics are defined as a list of reduction rules that are tried one by one until one matches.

Operations: - s =?= p checks if a scrutinee s matches the pattern p while accumulating extracted parts of the code. - isColosedUnder(x1, .., xn)('{e}) returns true if and only if all the references in e to names defined in the patttern are contained in the set {x1, ... xn}. - lift(x1, .., xn)('{e}) returns (y1, ..., yn) => [xi = $yi]'{e} where yi is an Expr of the type of xi. - withEnv(x1 -> y1, ..., xn -> yn)(matching) evaluates mathing recording that xi is equivalent to yi. - matched denotes that the the match succedded and matched('{e}) denotes that a matech succeded and extracts '{e} - &&& matches if both sides match. Concatenates the extracted expressions of both sides.

Note: that not all quoted terms bellow are valid expressions
