template<class T>
Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator struct new in Git master

Allocator for growable arrays.

Is either ArrayMallocAllocator for trivially copyable T, or ArrayNewAllocator otherwise. See Growable arrays for an introduction to growable arrays. You can provide your own allocator by implementing a class that with Type, allocate(), reallocate(), deallocate(), grow(), capacity(), base() and deleter() following the documented semantics.

Public types

using Type = T

Public static functions

static auto allocate(std::size_t capacity) -> T*

Function documentation

template<class T>
static T* Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::allocate(std::size_t capacity)

Allocate (but not construct) an array of given capacity.

Implementations are expected to store the capacity in a way that makes it possible to retrieve it later via capacity().

template<class T>
static void Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::reallocate(T*& array, std::size_t prevSize, std::size_t newCapacity)

Reallocate an array to given capacity.

Assumes array was returned earlier by allocate() or reallocate(). Implementations are expected to either extend array in-place to newCapacity or allocate a new array with newCapacity, move prevSize elements from array to it and call destructors on their original location, deallocate array it and update the reference to point to the new memory.

template<class T>
static void Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::deallocate(T* data)

Deallocate (but not destruct) an array.

Assumes that data was returned earlier by allocate() or reallocate(). Implementations are expected to free all memory associated with data.

template<class T>
static std::size_t Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::grow(T* array, std::size_t desired)

Grow the array.

Assumes that array is either nullptr or was returned earlier by allocate() or reallocate(). Implementations are expected to return a new capacity with an an optimal tradeoff between reallocation count and memory usage, the value then being passed to reallocate().

template<class T>
static std::size_t Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::capacity(T* array)

Array capacity.

Implementations are expected to retrieve the capacity information from array.

template<class T>
static void* Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::base(T* array)

Array base address.

Returns base address of the allocation backing array. For use by Address Sanitizer to annotate which area of the allocation is safe to access and which not.

template<class T>
static void Corrade::Containers::ArrayAllocator<T>::deleter(T* data, std::size_t size)

Array deleter.

Passed as a function pointer into Array. Calls destructors on size elements and delegates into deallocate(). The deleter function pointer is used to distinguish if given array is using this particular allocator — you might want to turn this function into an exported symbol when growing arrays across shared library boundaries to avoid each library thinking it's using some other allocator and reallocating on each addition.
