n_extent_generator

To facilitate simpler and clearer creation of
n_extent_t
objects.

Syntax

template<typename... TypeListT> class n_extent_generator; namespace { // Instance of generator object n_extent_generator<> n_extent; }
Description
The generator object provides recursively constructing operators [] for
fixed<>
,
aligned<>
, and
integer
values allowing building of an
n_extent_t
<…> instance, one dimension at a time. The main purpose is to allow a usage syntax that is similar to C multi-dimensional array definition:
Compare the following examples, instantiating three
n_extent_t
instances. and using the generator object to instantiate equivalent instances.
n_extent_t<int, int> ext1(height, width); n_extent_t<int, aligned<128>> ext2(height, width); n_extent_t<fixed<1080>, fixed<1920>> ext3(1080_fixed, 1920_fixed);
auto ext1 = n_extent[height][width]; auto ext2 = n_extent[height][aligned<128>(width)]; auto ext3 = n_extent[1080_fixed][1920_fixed];
Class Hierarchy
It is expected that
n_extent_generator
< … > not be directly used as a data member or parameter, instead only
n_extent_t
<...> from which it is derived. The generator object
n_extent
can be automatically downcast any place expecting an
n_extent_t<…>
.
The following table provides the template arguments for
n_extent_generator
Template Argument
Description
typename... TypeListT
Comma separated list of types, where the number of types provided controls how many dimensions the generator currently represent. Each type in the list identifies how the size of the corresponding dimension is to be represented. The order of the dimensions is the same order as C++ subscripts declaring a multi-dimensional array – from leftmost to rightmost.
Requirements
: Type is
int
,
fixed<NumberT>
, or
aligned<AlignmentT>
.
The following table provides information on the types defined as members of
n_extent_generator
in addition to those inherited from
n_extent_t
.
Member Type
Description
typedef n_extent_t<TypeListT...> value_type
Type value that the any chained [] operator calls have produced.

n_extent_t
Member
Description
n_extent_generator ()
Requirements:
TypeListT is empty
Effects:
Construct generator with no extents specified
n_extent_generator (const n_extent_generator &a_other)
Effects:
Construct generator copying any extent values from a_other
n_extent_generator<TypeListT..., int> operator [] (int a_size) const
Requirements:
a_size >= 0
Returns:
n_extent_generator<…> with additional rightmost integer based extent.
n_extent_generator<TypeListT..., fixed<NumberT>> operator [] (fixed<NumberT> a_size) const
Requirements:
a_size >= 0
Returns:
n_extent_generator<…> with additional rightmost fixed<NumberT> extent.
n_extent_generator<TypeListT..., aligned<AlignmentT>> operator [] (aligned<AlignmentT> a_size)
Requirements:
a_size >= 0
Returns:
n_extent_generator<…> with additional rightmost aligned<AlignmentT> based extent.
value_type value() const
Returns:
n_extent_t<…> with the correct types and values of the multi-dimensional extents aggregated by the generator.
