Eclipse Xtext concept symbol
Is there documentation on the notion of symbol?
That is to say where I found this:

Name returns Symbol:
ValidID
;

Ref:
{SymbolRef} symbol=[Symbol]
;


how is he using?
Is it possible to extend this to:
SymbolVar
SymbolConst
SymbolData
SymbolModule
...
besides Symbol so as to select the symbols used.

Hi Yves (just my 2 cent):
in your example, you have a rule "Name" which creates the class "Symbol".

Name returns Symbol:
ValidID
;

With your rule "Ref" you allow only instances of the class "Symbol" on this place.

Ref:
{SymbolRef} symbol=[Symbol]
;

So in your DSL, the name of an alredy defined ValidID is expected.

HIH, Uli

maybe you mean

Model:
definitions+=Definition*
usages+=Usage*;

Definition: name= ValidID;

Usage: "use" def=[Definition|ValidID]

;

=> in your case

Name returns Symbol:
name=ValidID
;

SymbolRef} symbol=[Symbol|ValidID]
;

( symbol=[Symbol] is short for symbol=[Symbol|ID] so this works only for names that are IDs but ValidID may contain more than ID
