[][src]Crate smart

Dynamic smart pointers for abstracting over different ownership models.

This library allows you to dynamically abstract over three different kinds of "shared ownership" in Rust: Rc, Arc and &'static. The two pointers defined in this crate can be constructed from multiple different kinds of shared ownership pointers, dynamically dispatching their Clone and Drop implementations.

A SharedPointer can be constructed from any of the three pointer types, but does not implement Send or Sync. A SyncPointer can only be constructed from Arc or &'static, and is threadsafe. Converting a SharedPointer to a SyncPointer is allowed, but panics if the SharedPointer was constructed from an Rc.
