Detailed Description

template<typename T, size_t ALIGNMENT = 0>
class openmsx::MemBuffer< T, ALIGNMENT >

This class manages the lifetime of a block of memory.

Its two main use cases are: 1) As a safer alternative for new[] / delete[]. Using this class makes sure the memory block is always properly cleaned up. Also in case of exceptions. 2) As an alternative for vector<byte> ('byte' or other primitive types). The main difference with vector is that the allocated block is left uninitialized. This can be a bit more efficient if the block will anyway soon be overwritten.

Like vector this buffer can dynamically grow or shrink. But it's not optimized for this case (it doesn't keep track of extra capacity). If you need frequent resizing prefer to use vector instead of this class.

template<typename T, size_t ALIGNMENT = 0>
const T& openmsx::MemBuffer< T, ALIGNMENT >::operator[] ( size_t  i) const

Access elements in the memory buffer.

template<typename T, size_t ALIGNMENT = 0>
void openmsx::MemBuffer< T, ALIGNMENT >::resize ( size_t  size)
inline

Grow or shrink the memory block.

In case of growing, the extra space is left uninitialized. It is possible (even likely) that the memory buffer is copied to a new location after this call, so data() will return a different pointer value.
