Predicates

getAChildNode

Gets a child node of this node in the AST. This predicate exists to aid exploration of the AST and other experiments. The child-parent relation may not be meaningful. For a more meaningful relation in terms of dependency use Expr.getASubExpression(), Stmt.getASubStatement(), Stmt.getASubExpression() or Scope.getAStmt().

getADecorator

Gets a decorator of this function expression

getADecoratorCall
getAKeyword

Gets a keyword argument of this class definition.

getASubExpression

Gets an immediate (non-nested) sub-expression of this expression

getKeyword

Gets the nth keyword argument of this class definition.

getKwargs

Gets a dictionary (**) argument of this class definition.

getMetaClass

Gets the metaclass expression

getStarargs

Gets a tuple (*) argument of this class definition.

Inherited predicates

contains

Whether this contains inner syntactically

from AstNode
containsInScope

Whether this contains inner syntactically and inner has the same scope as this

from AstNode
defines

Whether this expression defines variable v If doing dataflow, then consider using SsaVariable.getDefinition() for more precision.

from Expr
getABase

Gets a base of this class definition.

from ClassExpr_
getAFlowNode

Gets a flow node corresponding directly to this node. NOTE: For some statements and other purely syntactic elements, there may not be a ControlFlowNode

from AstNode
getBase

Gets the nth base of this class definition.

from ClassExpr_
getBases

Gets the bases of this class definition.

from ClassExpr_
getEnclosingModule

Gets the module in which this expression occurs

from Expr
getInnerScope

Gets the class scope of this class definition.

from ClassExpr_
getKeywords

Gets the keyword arguments of this class definition.

from ClassExpr_
getLocationfrom Expr
getName

Gets the name of this class definition.

from ClassExpr_
getParentfrom Expr_
getParentNode

Gets the parent node of this node in the AST. This predicate exists to aid exploration of the AST and other experiments. The child-parent relation may not be meaningful. For a more meaningful relation in terms of dependency use Expr.getASubExpression(), Stmt.getASubStatement(), Stmt.getASubExpression() or Scope.getAStmt() applied to the parent.

from AstNode
getScope

Gets the scope of this expression

from Expr
hasSideEffects

Whether this expression may have a side effect (as determined purely from its syntax)

from Expr
isArtificial

Whether this syntactic element is artificial, that is it is generated by the compiler and is not present in the source

from AstNode
isConstant

Whether this expression is a constant

from Expr
isParenthesised

Use isParenthesized instead.

from Expr
isParenthesized

Whether the parenthesized property of this expression is true.

from Expr
refersTo

Gets what this expression might “refer-to”. Performs a combination of localized (intra-procedural) points-to analysis and global module-level analysis. This points-to analysis favours precision over recall. It is highly precise, but may not provide information for a significant number of flow-nodes. If the class is unimportant then use refersTo(value) or refersTo(value, origin) instead. NOTE: For complex dataflow, involving multiple stages of points-to analysis, it may be more precise to use ControlFlowNode.refersTo(...) instead.

from Expr
refersTo

Gets what this expression might “refer-to” in the given context.

from Expr
refersTo

Whether this expression might “refer-to” to value which is from origin Unlike this.refersTo(value, _, origin), this predicate includes results where the class cannot be inferred.

from Expr
refersTo

Equivalent to this.refersTo(value, _)

from Expr
strValue

Use StrConst.getText() instead
