abstract class compiler::CBridge
sys::Obj compiler::CompilerSupport compiler::CBridge
CBridge is the base class for compiler FFI plugins to expose external type systems to the Fantom compiler as CPods, CTypes, and CSlots. Subclasses are registered for a FFI name with the "compilerBridge" facet and must declare a constructor with a Compiler arg.
Called during Inherit step when a Fantom slot overrides a FFI slot. Log and throw compiler error if there is a problem.
Called during CheckErrors step for a type which extends a FFI class or implements any FFI mixins.

Coerce the target expression to the specified type. If the expression is not type compatible run the onErr function. Default implementation provides standard Fantom coercion.
If the bridge is going to coerce
exprinto a new expression, then it should mark the resulting expression as synthetic. A synthetic expression must be "undoable":
- TypeCheckExpr where target is uncoerced expr
- CallExpr where last argument is uncoerced expr See ResolveExpr.resolveAssign for more details.
new make(Compiler c)
Constructor with associated compiler.
Resolve a method call. Type check the arguments and insert any conversions needed.
Resolve a construction call. Type check the arguments and insert any conversions needed.
Resolve a construction chain call where a Fantom constructor calls the super-class constructor. Type check the arguments and insert any conversions needed.
Resolve the specified foreign namespace to a CPod. Throw a CompilerErr with appropriate message if name cannot be resolved.
Given a dot operator slot access on the given foreign base type, determine the appopriate slot to use based on whether parens were used
base.name => noParens = true base.name() => noParens = false
