1.20.0[][src]Struct std::mem::ManuallyDrop

#[lang = "manually_drop"]
pub struct ManuallyDrop<T> where
    T: ?Sized
{ /* fields omitted */ }

A wrapper to inhibit compiler from automatically calling T’s destructor.

This wrapper is 0-cost.

ManuallyDrop<T> is subject to the same layout optimizations as T. As a consequence, it has no effect on the assumptions that the compiler makes about all values being initialized at their type. In particular, initializing a ManuallyDrop<&mut T> with mem::zeroed is undefined behavior. If you need to handle uninitialized data, use MaybeUninit<T> instead.


This wrapper helps with explicitly documenting the drop order dependencies between fields of the type:

use std::mem::ManuallyDrop;
struct Peach;
struct Banana;
struct Melon;
struct FruitBox {
    // Immediately clear there’s something non-trivial going on with these fields.
    peach: ManuallyDrop<Peach>,
    melon: Melon, // Field that’s independent of the other two.
    banana: ManuallyDrop<Banana>,

impl Drop for FruitBox {
    fn drop(&mut self) {
        unsafe {
            // Explicit ordering in which field destructors are run specified in the intuitive
            // location – the destructor of the structure containing the fields.
            // Moreover, one can now reorder fields within the struct however much they want.
            ManuallyDrop::drop(&mut self.peach);
            ManuallyDrop::drop(&mut self.banana);
        // After destructor for `FruitBox` runs (this function), the destructor for Melon gets
        // invoked in the usual manner, as it is not wrapped in `ManuallyDrop`.


impl<T> ManuallyDrop<T>[src]

pub const fn new(value: T) -> ManuallyDrop<T>[src]

Wrap a value to be manually dropped.


use std::mem::ManuallyDrop;

pub const fn into_inner(slot: ManuallyDrop<T>) -> T[src]

Extracts the value from the ManuallyDrop container.

This allows the value to be dropped again.


use std::mem::ManuallyDrop;
let x = ManuallyDrop::new(Box::new(()));
let _: Box<()> = ManuallyDrop::into_inner(x); // This drops the `Box`.Run

#[must_use = "if you don\'t need the value, you can use `ManuallyDrop::drop` instead"] pub unsafe fn take(slot: &mut ManuallyDrop<T>) -> T1.42.0[src]

Takes the value from the ManuallyDrop<T> container out.

This method is primarily intended for moving out values in drop. Instead of using ManuallyDrop::drop to manually drop the value, you can use this method to take the value and use it however desired.

Whenever possible, it is preferrable to use into_inner instead, which prevents duplicating the content of the ManuallyDrop<T>.


This function semantically moves out the contained value without preventing further usage, leaving the state of this container unchanged. It is your responsibility to ensure that this ManuallyDrop is not used again.

impl<T> ManuallyDrop<T> where
    T: ?Sized

pub unsafe fn drop(slot: &mut ManuallyDrop<T>)[src]

Manually drops the contained value.

If you have ownership of the value, you can use ManuallyDrop::into_inner instead.


This function runs the destructor of the contained value and thus the wrapped value now represents uninitialized data. It is up to the user of this method to ensure the uninitialized data is not actually used. In particular, this function can only be called at most once for a given instance of ManuallyDrop<T>.
