11 Unsafe Typed Racket operations

 (require typed/racket/unsafe) package: typed-racket-lib

Warning: the operations documented in this section are unsafe, meaning that they can circumvent the invariants of the type system. Unless the #:no-optimize language option is used, this may result in unpredictable behavior and may even crash Typed Racket.


(unsafe-require/typed m rt-clause ...)

This form requires identifiers from the module m with the same import specifications as require/typed.

Unlike require/typed, this form is unsafe and will not generate contracts that correspond to the specified types to check that the values actually match their types.

> (require typed/racket/unsafe)
; import with a bad type
> (unsafe-require/typed racket/base [values (-> String Integer)])
; unchecked call, the result type is wrong
> (values "foo")

- : Integer


Added in version 1.3 of package typed-racket-lib. Changed in version 1.6: Added support for struct type variables


(unsafe-provide provide-spec ...)

This form declares exports from a module with the same syntax as the provide form.

Unlike provide, this form is unsafe and Typed Racket will not generate any contracts that correspond to the specified types. This means that uses of the exports in other modules may circumvent the type system’s invariants.

Additionally, importing an identififer that is exported with unsafe-provide into another typed module, and then re-exporting it with provide will not cause contracts to be generated.

Uses of the provided identifiers in other typed modules are not affected by unsafe-providein these situations it behaves identically to provide. Furthermore, other typed modules that use a binding that is in an unsafe-provide will still have contracts generated as usual.

add1: contract violation

  expected: number?

  given: "foo"

Added in version 1.3 of package typed-racket-lib.
