A tuple is a heterogenous array. It is a sequence of values of any type.


The type of a tuple is written as a product of the types of the components:

int * string * double


A tuple value is written as a comma separated sequence:

var x : int * string * double = 1, "hello", 4.2;

If all the components have the same type, you get an array instead.


A tuple projection is like an array projection except that only literal integer index is allowed. This is so that the type is known. The indices are zero origin, as for arrays.

var x : int * string * double = 1, "hello", 4.2;
println$ x.1; // string

Unit Tuple

There is a special tuple with no components. It is given the type 1 or unit. The value is written ().
