Class std.mmfile.MmFile

MmFile objects control the memory mapped file resource.

class MmFile ;


this (filename) Open memory mapped file filename for reading. File is closed when the object instance is deleted.
this (filename, mode, size, address, window) Open memory mapped file filename in mode. File is closed when the object instance is deleted.


length[get] ulongGives size in bytes of the memory mapped file.


mode () Read-only property returning the file mode.
opIndex (i) Returns byte at index i in file.
opIndexAssign (value, i) Sets and returns byte at index i in file to value.
opSlice () Returns entire file contents as an array.
opSlice (i1, i2) Returns slice of file contents as an array.
factory (classname) Create instance of class specified by the fully qualified name classname. The class must either have no constructors or have a default constructor.
opCmp (o) Compare with another Object obj.
opEquals (o) Test whether this is equal to o. The default implementation only compares by identity (using the is operator). Generally, overrides and overloads for opEquals should attempt to compare objects by their contents. A class will most likely want to add an overload that takes your specific type as the argument and does the content comparison. Then you can override this and forward it to your specific typed overload with a cast. Remember to check for null on the typed overload.
toHash () Compute hash function for Object.
toString () Convert Object to a human readable string.


Mode The mode the memory mapped file is opened with.


opDollar Forwards length.
