Detailed Description

This class provides a pool of memory 'chunks' of identical size.

The size of a chunk is determined when creating the memory pool.

Using a memory pool may yield better performance and memory usage when allocating and deallocating many memory blocks of equal size. E.g. the Common::String class uses a memory pool for the refCount variables (each the size of an int) it allocates for each string instance.

void Common::MemoryPool::addPageToPool ( const Page page  )  [protected]

Definition at line 81 of file memorypool.cpp.

void * Common::MemoryPool::allocChunk (  ) 

Allocate a new chunk from the memory pool.

void Common::MemoryPool::allocPage (  )  [protected]

Definition at line 62 of file memorypool.cpp.

void Common::MemoryPool::freeChunk ( void *  ptr  ) 

Return a chunk to the memory pool.

The given pointer must have been obtained from calling the allocChunk() method of the very same MemoryPool instance. Passing any other pointer (e.g. to a chunk from another MemoryPool, or a malloc'ed memory block) will lead to undefined behavior and may result in a crash (if you are lucky) or in silent data corruption.

Definition at line 109 of file memorypool.cpp.

void Common::MemoryPool::freeUnusedPages (  ) 

Perform garbage collection.

The memory pool stores all the chunks it manages in memory 'pages' obtained via the classic memory allocation APIs (i.e. malloc/free). Ordinarily, once a page has been allocated, it won't be released again during the life time of the memory pool. The exception is when this method is called.

size_t Common::MemoryPool::getChunkSize (  )  const [inline]

Return the chunk size used by this memory pool.
