Boolean type

class pyasn1.type.univ.Boolean(value=NoValue(), tagSet=TagSet(), subtypeSpec=ConstraintsIntersection())

Create Boolean type or object.

Boolean objects are immutable and duck-type Python int objects.

Keyword Arguments:
 
  • value (int, str or Boolean object) – Python integer or boolean or string literal or Boolean class instance.
  • tagSet (TagSet) – Object representing non-default ASN.1 tag(s)
  • subtypeSpec (ConstraintsIntersection) – Object representing non-default ASN.1 subtype constraint(s)
  • namedValues (NamedValues) – Object representing non-default symbolic aliases for numbers
Raises:

PyAsn1Error – On constraint violation or bad initializer.

Examples

class RoundResult(Boolean):
    '''
    ASN.1 specification:

    RoundResult ::= BOOLEAN

    ok RoundResult ::= TRUE
    ko RoundResult ::= FALSE
    '''
ok = RoundResult(True)
ko = RoundResult(False)

Note

The Boolean type models a BOOLEAN that can be either TRUE or FALSE.

clone(value=NoValue(), tagSet=TagSet(), subtypeSpec=ConstraintsIntersection())

Create a modified version of Boolean schema or value object.

The clone() method accepts the same set arguments as Boolean class takes on instantiation except that all arguments of the clone() method are optional.

Whatever arguments are supplied, they are used to create a copy of self taking precedence over the ones used to instantiate self.

Note

Due to the immutable nature of the Boolean object, if no arguments are supplied, no new Boolean object will be created and self will be returned instead.

subtype(value=NoValue(), implicitTag=Tag(), explicitTag=Tag(), subtypeSpec=ConstraintsIntersection())

Create a specialization of Boolean schema or value object.

The subtype relationship between ASN.1 types has no correlation with subtype relationship between Python types. ASN.1 type is mainly identified by its tag(s) (TagSet) and value range constraints (ConstraintsIntersection). These ASN.1 type properties are implemented as Boolean attributes.

The subtype() method accepts the same set arguments as Boolean class takes on instantiation except that all parameters of the subtype() method are optional.

With the exception of the arguments described below, the rest of supplied arguments they are used to create a copy of self taking precedence over the ones used to instantiate self.

The following arguments to subtype() create a ASN.1 subtype out of Boolean type:

Other Parameters:
 
  • implicitTag (Tag) – Implicitly apply given ASN.1 tag object to self’s TagSet, then use the result as new object’s ASN.1 tag(s).
  • explicitTag (Tag) – Explicitly apply given ASN.1 tag object to self’s TagSet, then use the result as new object’s ASN.1 tag(s).
  • subtypeSpec (ConstraintsIntersection) – Add ASN.1 constraints object to one of the self’s, then use the result as new object’s ASN.1 constraints.
Returns:

new instance of Boolean schema or value object

Note

Due to the immutable nature of the Boolean object, if no arguments are supplied, no new Boolean object will be created and self will be returned instead.

tagSet = <TagSet object at 0x110ac2e48 tags 0:0:1>

Set (on class, not on instance) or return a TagSet object representing ASN.1 tag(s) associated with Boolean type.

subtypeSpec = <ConstraintsIntersection object at 0x110ac2fd0 consts <SingleValueConstraint object at 0x110ac2f28 consts 0, 1>>

Set (on class, not on instance) or return a ConstraintsIntersection object imposing constraints on Boolean type initialization values.

effectiveTagSet

For Boolean type is equivalent to tagSet

isSameTypeWith(other, matchTags=True, matchConstraints=True)

Examine Boolean type for equality with other ASN.1 type.

ASN.1 tags (tag) and constraints (constraint) are examined when carrying out ASN.1 types comparison.

Python class inheritance relationship is NOT considered.

Parameters:other (a pyasn1 type object) – Class instance representing ASN.1 type.
Returns:boolTrue if other is Boolean type, False otherwise.
isSuperTypeOf(other, matchTags=True, matchConstraints=True)

Examine Boolean type for subtype relationship with other ASN.1 type.

ASN.1 tags (tag) and constraints (constraint) are examined when carrying out ASN.1 types comparison.

Python class inheritance relationship is NOT considered.

Parameters:other (a pyasn1 type object) – Class instance representing ASN.1 type.
Returns:boolTrue if other is a subtype of Boolean type, False otherwise.
isValue

Indicate that Boolean object represents ASN.1 value.

If isValue is False then this object represents just ASN.1 schema.

If isValue is True then, in addition to its ASN.1 schema features, this object can also be used like a Python built-in object (e.g. int, str, dict etc.).

Returns:boolFalse if object represents just ASN.1 schema. True if object represents ASN.1 schema and can be used as a normal value.

Note

There is an important distinction between PyASN1 schema and value objects. The PyASN1 schema objects can only participate in ASN.1 schema-related operations (e.g. defining or testing the structure of the data). Most obvious uses of ASN.1 schema is to guide serialisation codecs whilst encoding/decoding serialised ASN.1 contents.

The PyASN1 value objects can additionally participate in many operations involving regular Python objects (e.g. arithmetic, comprehension etc).

tagMap

Return a TagMap object mapping ASN.1 tags to ASN.1 objects within callee object.
