Detailed Description

Variant class. Note that due to legacy, all its constructors, assignment operators and cast operators are implicit. This can lead to some nasty bug, so be careful when using them. For instance:

CoreVariant string("hello");
string = "world";
printf("%s\n", static_cast<CoreString>(string).get_data());
// 1

This is because CoreVariant doesn't have an assignment operator which takes a const char * right value, so the compiler will cast the string literal to a CoreVariant. And CoreVariant(bool) is perfectly valid, so some compilers will use this one, resulting in not quite what you expected (the CoreVariant is of type bool, and when you want to get the string value, the boolean value is converted to a string, resulting in either "1" or "0"...)

To fix this specific bug, for the compiler to use the correct operator:

CoreVariant string("hello");
string = CoreVariant("world");

At some point, we'll have to refactor this, but it would break quite a lot of code, so in the meantime, use with care and when in doubt, don't rely on implicit operators/constructors.

Member Function Documentation

size_t CoreVariant::get_memory_size ( void  ) const

Get the runtime size for this variant

const CoreVariant::Type & CoreVariant::get_type ( ) const

Get the type of the value currently stored

bool CoreVariant::operator!= ( const CoreVariant other) const

Inequality operator.

bool CoreVariant::operator== ( const CoreVariant other) const

Strict equality operator. This will check the type and the value of the variants.
