Function bytemuck::try_cast

source ·
pub fn try_cast<A: NoUninit, B: AnyBitPattern>(a: A) -> Result<B, PodCastError>
Expand description

Try to cast T into U.

Note that for this particular type of cast, alignment isn’t a factor. The input value is semantically copied into the function and then returned to a new memory location which will have whatever the required alignment of the output type is.


  • If the types don’t have the same size this fails.
