Detailed Description

template<class T>
class cereal::detail::StaticObject< T >

A static, pre-execution object.

This class will create a single copy (singleton) of some type and ensures that merely referencing this type will cause it to be instantiated and initialized pre-execution. For example, this is used heavily in the polymorphic pointer serialization mechanisms to bind various archive types with different polymorphic classes

Member Function Documentation

template<class T>

This function is a no-op if cereal is not compiled with thread safety enabled (CEREAL_THREAD_SAFE = 1).

This function returns an object that holds a lock for this StaticObject that will release its lock upon destruction. This call will block until the lock is available.
