Detailed Description

template<class Self>
struct vcsn::algebra::FreeMonoidBase< Self >

Structural element for free monoid.

FreeMonoidBase is the mother class of free monoids. A free monoid A* is a monoid generated by an alphabet A and which provides a way of iterating through letters of words.

Member Function Documentation

bool contains const Element< OtherS, T > &  other  )  const [inherited]

Specialization of contains that always returns false.

Indeed, elements structured by a particular type are always incompatible with structural elements of another type.

self_t& self  )  [inherited]

Accessor to the real type.

To be used by implementations in this class and derived structures to obtain a reference to the structural element with its most derived type.
