Detailed Description

Holds registered mappings between base and derived types for casting.

This will be allocated as a StaticObject and holds a map containing all registered mappings between base and derived types.

Member Function Documentation

static bool cereal::detail::PolymorphicCasters::exists ( std::type_index const &  baseIndex,
std::type_index const &  derivedIndex 
)
inlinestatic

Checks if the mapping object that can perform the upcast or downcast.

Uses the type index from the base and derived class to find the matching registered caster. If no matching caster exists, returns false.

template<class F >
static std::vector<PolymorphicCaster const *> const& cereal::detail::PolymorphicCasters::lookup ( std::type_index const &  baseIndex,
std::type_index const &  derivedIndex,
F &&  exceptionFunc 
)
inlinestatic

Gets the mapping object that can perform the upcast or downcast.

Uses the type index from the base and derived class to find the matching registered caster. If no matching caster exists, calls the exception function.

The returned PolymorphicCaster is capable of upcasting or downcasting between the two types.

template<class Derived >
static void* cereal::detail::PolymorphicCasters::upcast ( Derived *const  dptr,
std::type_info const &  baseInfo 
)
inlinestatic

Performs an upcast to the registered base type using the given a derived type.

The return is untyped because the final casting to the base type must happen in the polymorphic serialization function, where the type is known at compile time
