Sawyer::ProxyAllocator< Allocator > Class Template Reference


template<class Allocator>
class Sawyer::ProxyAllocator< Allocator >

Allocator proxy.

Allocators are copied by value when containers are created, which means that each container would normally have its own allocator. However, sometimes, like for pool allocators, performance can be better if multiple containers could share an allocator. An allocator proxy allows containers to share allocators by having the proxy reference the allocator. When the proxy is copied, the new copy continues to point to the original allocator.

Example usage:

Sawyer::PoolAllocator pool; // one pool of memory for all graphs
Graph g1(pool);
Graph g2(pool);
