Struct dmd.common.string.SmallBuffer

Defines a temporary array using a fixed-length buffer as back store. If the length of the buffer suffices, it is readily used. Otherwise, malloc is used to allocate memory for the array and free is used for deallocation in the destructor.

struct SmallBuffer(T) ;

This type is meant to use exclusively as an automatic variable. It is not default constructible or copyable.



char[230] buf = void;
auto a = SmallBuffer!char(10, buf);
assert(a[] is buf[0 .. 10]);
auto b = SmallBuffer!char(1000, buf);
assert(b[] !is buf[]);
writeln(b.length); // 1000
assert(b[] !is buf[]);
