Package: wnpp Severity: wishlist * Package name : libfactory++ Version : 0.1.0 Upstream Author : Martin F. Krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> * URL : http://cvs.ailab.ch/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/libfactory%2B%2B * License : Artistic Description : C++ template factory framework libfactory++ is a C++ template framework for run-time dynamic type instantiation. You can register single classes or whole hierarchies, and then tell libfactory++ to instantiate objects using the registration key. For instance, if you register class A with key 1 and a child class A::B with key 2, then you could say create(1) to obtain a pointer to a newly allocated and constructed A object, or create(2) to return an A* containing a new instance of A::B. . libfactory++ differs from other factory approaches mainly in its flexibility. For one, libfactory++ can use any constructor a type supports, and allows you to choose (and configure) the constructor to use for each call to create(). Second, it supports custom allocators, allowing you to use e.g. a memory pool rather than continuous invocations of 'new'. . Note that the library is not (yet) complete and it's not thoroughly tested. However, given the effort and grief I went through in writing it, I would like to make it available to folks, get people to test it, and hopefully have some peeps submit improvements. . It's not yet documented, although the usage should be fairly straight forward. I am hoping to find someone else to document it as I suck at documentation and as the author, it's exceptionally difficult to stay didactically correct. . libfactory++ only exists as a -dev package as it's only a bunch of C++ header files. Therefore, no static or shared library is necessary, allowing for ultimate flexibility. -- Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them! .''`. martin f. krafft <email@example.com> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, and user `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
