Public Member Functions


ReferenceCount ()
Constructor intializes count to zero.
ReferenceCount (const ReferenceCount &src)
Copy-constructor intializes count to zero.
const ReferenceCount & operator= (const ReferenceCount &src)
The assignment operator doesn't copy the reference count, it leaves it unchanged.

Type also needs to be a friend to invoke the private ref() and unref() methods, in case Type doesn't want to inherit ReferenceCount and thus needs to invoke ref() and unref() through forwarding member functions.

Detailed Description

 

template<class Type> class zipios::ReferenceCount< Type >

ReferenceCount is useful to ensure proper handling of the reference count for (objects of) classes handled through a SimpleSmartPointer.

Subclassing ReferenceCount is all a class needs to become ready for being handled by SimpleSmartPointer. Another way is to add a ReferenceCount member variable to a class and write two methods 'void ref() const' and 'unsigned int unref() const' that invoke the same methods in the ReferenceCount variable.
