Class protocol:

instance creation
o  type: t

queries
o  isAbstract
Return if this class is an abstract class.
True is returned here for myself only; false for subclasses.
Abstract subclasses must redefine this again.


Instance protocol:

RBParser compatibility
o  bestNodeFor: anInterval

o  children

o  childrenDo: aBlock

o  containedBy: anInterval
true if the interval contains me completely

o  intersectsInterval: anInterval

o  nodesDo: aBlock

o  start
for RBToken compat.

o  whichNodeIntersects: anInterval
I intersect

o  whichNodeIsContainedBy: anInterval
ouch: multiple children in interval

accessing
o  enclosingBlock
Return closest enclosing block node or nil

o  endPosition
the node's last character position in the original source

o  endPosition: aCharacterPosition

o  line
Compatibility

o  lineNumber

o  lineNumber: dummy
set linenumber - ignored here

o  parent

o  parent: aParseNode

o  parenthesized

o  parenthesized: aBoolean

o  parenthized
obsolete - typo in message name - use parenthesized

o  parenthized: aBoolean
obsolete - typo in message name - use parenthesized:

o  realNode

o  selectorPartPositions: selectorPartPositions
ignored here, but implemented because sent without checking

o  selectorPosition: aCharacterPosition
ignored here

o  startPosition
the node's character position in the original source

o  startPosition: start

o  startPosition: start endPosition: endIn
a synthetic node

o  type
return the node's type

attributes access
o  objectAttributes
return a Collection of attributes - nil if there is none.

o  objectAttributes: anObject
(comment from inherited method)
set the collection of attributes.

The default implementation here uses a global Dictionary to store
attributes which may be too slow for high frequency change&update.
Therefore, some classes may redefine this for better performance.

checks
o  plausibilityCheckIn: aParser

code generation
o  codeForSideEffectOn: aStream inBlock: b for: aCompiler
generate code for this statement - value not needed

o  codeForSimpleReturnOn: aStream inBlock: b lineNumber: lineNrOrNil for: aCompiler
generate code to return myself as a simple method return

o  codeInlineOn: aStream inBlock: b valueNeeded: valueNeeded for: aCompiler
generate code for this statement - value is needed

o  codeLineNumber: nr on: codeStream for: aCompiler
generate lineNumber information

o  codeOn: aStream inBlock: codeBlock for: aCompiler

** This method must be redefined in concrete classes (subclassResponsibility) **

o  codeThenDropOn: aStream inBlock: b for: aCompiler
generate code for this statement - value not needed

code generation helpers
o  emitPushGlobalWithLiteralIndex: litIndex on: aTokenCodeStream for: aCompiler

o  emitPushLiteral: value on: aTokenCodeStream for: aCompiler

o  emitPushLiteralIndex: index on: aTokenCodeStream for: aCompiler
