AST Matcher Reference

This document shows all currently implemented matchers. The matchers are grouped by category and node type they match. You can click on matcher names to show the matcher's source documentation.

There are three different basic categories of matchers:

Within each category the matchers are ordered by node type they match on. Note that if a matcher can match multiple node types, it will it will appear multiple times. This means that by searching for Matcher<Stmt> you can find all matchers that can be used to match on Stmt nodes.

The exception to that rule are matchers that can match on any node. Those are marked with a * and are listed in the beginning of each category.

Note that the categorization of matchers is a great help when you combine them into matcher expressions. You will usually want to form matcher expressions that read like english sentences by alternating between node matchers and narrowing or traversal matchers, like this:

recordDecl(hasDescendant(
    ifStmt(hasTrueExpression(
        expr(hasDescendant(
            ifStmt()))))))

Node Matchers

Node matchers are at the core of matcher expressions - they specify the type of node that is expected. Every match expression starts with a node matcher, which can then be further refined with a narrowing or traversal matcher. All traversal matchers take node matchers as their arguments.

For convenience, all node matchers take an arbitrary number of arguments and implicitly act as allOf matchers.

Node matchers are the only matchers that support the bind("id") call to bind the matched node to the given string, to be later retrieved from the match callback.

It is important to remember that the arguments to node matchers are predicates on the same node, just with additional information about the type. This is often useful to make matcher expression more readable by inlining bind calls into redundant node matchers inside another node matcher:

// This binds the CXXRecordDecl to "id", as the decl() matcher will stay on
// the same node.
recordDecl(decl().bind("id"), hasName("::MyClass"))

Narrowing Matchers

Narrowing matchers match certain attributes on the current node, thus narrowing down the set of nodes of the current type to match on.

There are special logical narrowing matchers (allOf, anyOf, anything and unless) which allow users to create more powerful match expressions.

Return typeNameParameters
Matcher<*>allOfMatcher<*>, ..., Matcher<*>
Matches if all given matchers match.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>anyOfMatcher<*>, ..., Matcher<*>
Matches if any of the given matchers matches.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>anything

Useful when another matcher requires a child matcher, but there's no
additional constraint. This will often be used with an explicit conversion
to an internal::Matcher<> type such as TypeMatcher.

Example: DeclarationMatcher(anything()) matches all declarations, e.g.,
"int* p" and "void f()" in
  int* p;
  void f();

Usable as: Any Matcher

  initializer for i.
Matcher<internal::Matcher<NamedDecl>>hasAnyNameStringRef, ..., StringRef
Matches NamedDecl nodes that have any of the specified names.

This matcher is only provided as a performance optimization of hasName.
    hasAnyName(a, b, c)
 is equivalent to, but faster than
    anyOf(hasName(a), hasName(b), hasName(c))
Matcher<internal::Matcher<Stmt>>isInTemplateInstantiation
Matches statements inside of a template instantiation.

  template<typename T> void A(T t) { T i; j += 42;}
  A(0);
  A(0U);
declStmt(isInTemplateInstantiation())
  matches 'int i;' and 'unsigned i'.
unless(stmt(isInTemplateInstantiation()))
  will NOT match j += 42; as it's shared between the template definition and
  instantiation.

AST Traversal Matchers

Traversal matchers specify the relationship to other nodes that are reachable from the current node.

Note that there are special traversal matchers (has, hasDescendant, forEach and forEachDescendant) which work on all nodes and allow users to write more generic match expressions.

Return typeNameParameters
Matcher<*>eachOfMatcher<*>, ..., Matcher<*>
Matches if any of the given matchers matches.

Unlike anyOf, eachOf will generate a match result for each
matching submatcher.

For example, in:
  class A { int a; int b; };
The matcher:
  cxxRecordDecl(eachOf(has(fieldDecl(hasName("a")).bind("v")),
                       has(fieldDecl(hasName("b")).bind("v"))))
will generate two results binding "v", the first of which binds
the field declaration of a, the second the field declaration of
b.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>forEachDescendantMatcher<*>
Matches AST nodes that have descendant AST nodes that match the
provided matcher.

Example matches X, A, B, C
  (matcher = cxxRecordDecl(forEachDescendant(cxxRecordDecl(hasName("X")))))
  class X {};  Matches X, because X::X is a class of name X inside X.
  class A { class X {}; };
  class B { class C { class X {}; }; };

DescendantT must be an AST base type.

As opposed to 'hasDescendant', 'forEachDescendant' will cause a match for
each result that matches instead of only on the first one.

Note: Recursively combined ForEachDescendant can cause many matches:
  cxxRecordDecl(forEachDescendant(cxxRecordDecl(
    forEachDescendant(cxxRecordDecl())
  )))
will match 10 times (plus injected class name matches) on:
  class A { class B { class C { class D { class E {}; }; }; }; };

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>forEachMatcher<*>
Matches AST nodes that have child AST nodes that match the
provided matcher.

Example matches X, Y
  (matcher = cxxRecordDecl(forEach(cxxRecordDecl(hasName("X")))
  class X {};  Matches X, because X::X is a class of name X inside X.
  class Y { class X {}; };
  class Z { class Y { class X {}; }; };  Does not match Z.

ChildT must be an AST base type.

As opposed to 'has', 'forEach' will cause a match for each result that
matches instead of only on the first one.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>hasAncestorMatcher<*>
Matches AST nodes that have an ancestor that matches the provided
matcher.

Given
void f() { if (true) { int x = 42; } }

expr(integerLiteral(hasAncestor(ifStmt()))) matches 42, but not 43.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>hasDescendantMatcher<*>
Matches AST nodes that have descendant AST nodes that match the
provided matcher.

Example matches X, Y, Z
    (matcher = cxxRecordDecl(hasDescendant(cxxRecordDecl(hasName("X")))))
  class X {};  Matches X, because X::X is a class of name X inside X.
  class Y { class X {}; };
  class Z { class Y { class X {}; }; };

DescendantT must be an AST base type.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Matcher<*>hasMatcher<*>
Matches AST nodes that have child AST nodes that match the
provided matcher.

Example matches X, Y
  (matcher = cxxRecordDecl(has(cxxRecordDecl(hasName("X")))
  class X {};  Matches X, because X::X is a class of name X inside X.
  class Y { class X {}; };
  class Z { class Y { class X {}; }; };  Does not match Z.

ChildT must be an AST base type.

Usable as: Any Matcher
Note that has is direct matcher, so it also matches things like implicit
casts and paren casts. If you are matching with expr then you should
probably consider using ignoringParenImpCasts like:
has(ignoringParenImpCasts(expr())).
Matcher<*>hasParentMatcher<*>
Matches AST nodes that have a parent that matches the provided
matcher.

Given
void f() { for (;;) { int x = 42; if (true) { int x = 43; } } }
compoundStmt(hasParent(ifStmt())) matches "{ int x = 43; }".

with callee(...)
  matching this->x, x, y.x, f respectively
