Detailed Description

Handles serilialization of data-objects.

objects of this class are passed to serialization methods/functions. Try to use operator & only; using anything else is potentially dangerous.

Member Function Documentation

void complete ( const reserved &  r,
const T &  _obj 

fill in data at position that has been reserved before rserve/complete supported for bitwise-serializable types only

void* get_body ( ) const [inline]
pointer to the message body (without header)
size_type get_body_size ( ) const [inline]
the number of bytes already packed into the buffer
void* get_header ( ) const [inline]
pointer to message header
size_type get_header_size ( ) const [inline]
size of header
size_type get_total_size ( ) const [inline]
total number of bytes in buffer (header + data)
serializer& operator& ( T &  var)

Top-level packing interface, to be used in the "serialize" function of your classes. Applies the serializer to one object resp. an array of objects (e.g. packing them into the serializer or unpacking them from the serializer). Dispatches w.r.t. the packing category of the object's type (i.e. byte-wise copying or object serialization).

reserved reserve ( const T &  _obj)

reserve current position in buffer to be filled later with a call to "complete" rserve/complete supported for bitwise-serializable types only

size_type unpack_header ( ) const [inline]
body size from header, -1 if something goes wrong
