Detailed Description

Lightweight object Pool.

Handy class for pooling objects of type T.


  • Claim a new object using
    SomeClass foo = ObjectPool<SomeClass>.Claim ();
  • Use it and do stuff with it
  • Release it with
    ObjectPool<SomeClass>.Release (foo);

After you have released a object, you should never use it again.

Member Function Documentation

static T Claim ( )

Claim a object.

Returns a pooled object if any are in the pool. Otherwise it creates a new one. After usage, this object should be released using the Release function (though not strictly necessary).

static void Clear ( )

Clears the pool for objects of this type.

This is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of pooled objects.

static int GetSize ( )

Number of objects of this type in the pool.

static void Release ( ref T  obj)

Releases an object.

After the object has been released it should not be used anymore. The variable will be set to null to prevent silly mistakes.

System.InvalidOperationExceptionReleasing an object when it has already been released will cause an exception to be thrown. However enabling ASTAR_OPTIMIZE_POOLING will prevent this check.
