Subscriptor functionality

Classes derived from Subscriptor provide a facility to subscribe to this object. This is mostly used by the SmartPointer class.

Detailed Description

template<typename VectorType = ::Vector<double>>
class GrowingVectorMemory< VectorType >

A pool based memory management class. See the documentation of the base class for a description of its purpose.

Each time a vector is requested from this class, it checks if it has one available and returns its address, or allocates a new one on the heap. If a vector is returned from its user, through the GrowingVectorMemory::free() member function, it doesn't return the allocated memory to the operating system memory subsystem, but keeps it around unused for later use if GrowingVectorMemory::alloc() is called again. The class therefore avoid the overhead of repeatedly allocating memory on the heap if temporary vectors are required and released frequently; on the other hand, it doesn't release once-allocated memory at the earliest possible time and may therefore lead to an increased overall memory consumption.

All GrowingVectorMemory objects of the same vector type use the same memory pool. (In other words: The pool of vectors from which this class draws is global, rather than a regular member variable of the current class that is destroyed at the time that the surrounding GrowingVectorMemory object is destroyed.) Therefore, functions can create such a GrowingVectorMemory object whenever needed without the performance penalty of creating a new memory pool every time. A drawback of this policy is that vectors once allocated are only released at the end of the program run.

Member Function Documentation

◆ free()

virtual void VectorMemory< ::Vector< double > >::free ( const ::Vector< double > * const  )
pure virtualinherited

Return a vector and indicate that it is not going to be used any further by the place that called alloc() to get a pointer to it.

Just like using new and delete explicitly in code invites bugs where memory is leaked (either because the corresponding delete is forgotten altogether, or because of exception safety issues), using the alloc() and free() functions explicitly invites writing code that accidentally leaks memory. You should consider using the VectorMemory::Pointer class instead, which provides the same kind of service that std::unique provides for arbitrary memory allocated on the heap.

◆ ExcNotAllocatedHere()

static ::ExceptionBase & VectorMemory< ::Vector< double > >::ExcNotAllocatedHere ( )

Vector was not allocated from this memory pool.

The message that will be printed by this exception reads:
"You are trying to deallocate a vector from a memory pool, but this " "vector has not actually been allocated by the same pool before."
