Context.followWithAbstracts( _, true ) reduces intermediate typedefs in one step


#1

With haxe 4 preview 5

typedef A = Int;
typedef B = A;
typedef C = B;
typedef D = C;
typedef E = D;

abstract F(E) {}
        var t = ComplexTypeTools.toType( TPath( { pack: [], name: 'F' } ) );
        for ( i in 0 ... 7 ) {
            trace( t );
            t = Context.followWithAbstracts( t, true );
        }

output:

TAbstract(F,[])
TAbstract(Int,[])
TAbstract(Int,[])
TAbstract(Int,[])
TAbstract(Int,[])
TAbstract(Int,[])
TAbstract(Int,[])

Also it would have been nice if follow/followWith… returned Option or something, to know when type was fully reduced and you should stop iterating. Because now it makes new instance of Type and you can’t just == them.
