When writing some methods for
show for types in a package, I was wondering if there is any mechanism (or package) for reusing
show methods for fields but nesting the indentation.
Eg suppose a type prints as
This is a Foo with 3x2 elements. [1.0 1.0 1.0; 1.0 1.0 1.0; 1.0 1.0 1.0]
and a type
Bar prints as
This is a Bar with critical value 0.7
Then for a type
struct Bar foo::Foo bar::Bar end
is there an organized way to write a
show method that
showcode for the fields,
- indents the fields.
This is a Bar with fields This is a Foo with 3x2 elements. [1.0 1.0 1.0; 1.0 1.0 1.0; 1.0 1.0 1.0] This is a Bar with critical value 0.7
Solutions I have thought of:
- use something other than indentation, eg
- pass around the current indentation as an optional 3rd argument of
show, defaulting to
Neither of these is very clean.
