Utility and ancillary artifacts of std.experimental.allocator. This module shouldn't be used directly; its functionality will be migrated into more appropriate parts of std.
Andrei Alexandrescu, Timon Gehr (Ternary)
- Returns the size in bytes of the state that needs to be allocated to hold an object of type T.
stateSize!T is zero for structs that are not nested and have no nonstatic member variables.
- enum auto
- Returns true if the Allocator has the alignment known at compile time; otherwise it returns false.
- enum ulong
chooseAtRuntimeis a compile-time constant of type size_t that several parameterized structures in this module recognize to mean deferral to runtime of the exact value. For example, BitmappedBlock!(Allocator, 4096) (described in detail below) defines a block allocator with block size of 4096 bytes, whereas BitmappedBlock!(Allocator, chooseAtRuntime) defines a block allocator that has a field storing the block size, initialized by the user.
- enum ulong
unboundedis a compile-time constant of type size_t that several parameterized structures in this module recognize to mean "infinite" bounds for the parameter. For example, Freelist (described in detail below) accepts a maxNodes parameter limiting the number of freelist items. If
unboundedis passed for maxNodes, then there is no limit and no checking for the number of nodes.
- enum uint
- The alignment that is guaranteed to accommodate any D object allocation on the current platform.
