  {:ok, term(), term()} | {:ok, term()} | {:known, boolean()} | {:error, term()}

Create a new predicate. There are various return types possible:

  • {:ok, left, right} - Return the left/right values of the operator
  • {:ok, operator} - Return the operator itself, this or the one above are acceptable
  • {:known, boolean} - If the value is already known, e.g 1 == 1
  • {:error, error} - If there was an error creating the operator
@callback to_string(

  Inspect.Opts.t()
) :: term()
