Crate shared_string[][src]

A String with shared ownership.

Helpfull for some types that need to be parsed from a string and get split into smaller parts like an Url or a Vec containing lines which need to be owned by the parent type.

Note

First try to store references, for example &str which is more efficient.

At the moment if you create a SharedString the underlying bytes cannot be mutated anymore.

Example

use shared_string::SharedString;
// or SharedSyncString if `Sync` is required

struct Name {
	firstname: SharedString,
	middlename: SharedString,
	lastname: SharedString
	// to be faster than string
	// you should use at least 3 fields
}

impl Name {
	pub fn new(fullname: impl Into<SharedString>) -> Option<Self> {
		let mut split = fullname.into().split(b' ');
		Some(Self {
			firstname: split.next()?,
			middlename: split.next()?,
			lastname: split.next()?
		})
	}
}

let name = Name::new("Bartholomew Jojo Simpson").unwrap();
assert_eq!(name.firstname, "Bartholomew");
assert_eq!(name.middlename, "Jojo");
assert_eq!(name.lastname, "Simpson");

Performance

SharedString can increase the perfomance in situations such as the example above by over 30%. See benches/* for benchmarks.
