Detailed Description

Implementation of the ISmartPointer interface.

This class implements also a security against concurrent access by several clients acting from different threads. This is achieved by using intrinsics __sync_fetch_and_add and __sync_fetch_and_sub in use and forget respectively.

This class can't be instantiated since its default constructor is protected.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

SmartPointer ( )


virtual ~SmartPointer ( )

Destruction of the instance will be automatically called when the reference counter becomes null. The destructor is private in order to avoid to directly delete the instance without using the 'use/forget' mechanism.

Member Function Documentation

void forget ( )

Forget an instance by releasing a token on it

Implements ISmartPointer.

void use ( )

Use an instance by taking a token on it

Implements ISmartPointer.
