CGAL 4.14  dD Triangulations

The concept TriangulationDSVertex
describes the requirements for the vertex base class of a CGAL::Triangulation_data_structure
. It refines the concept TriangulationDataStructure::Vertex
.
Since the CGAL::Triangulation_data_structure
is the class which defines the handle types, the vertex base class has to be somehow parameterized by the triangulation data structure. But since the CGAL::Triangulation_data_structure
itself is parameterized by the cell and vertex base classes, there is a cycle in the definition of these classes. In order to break the cycle, the base classes for cells and vertices which are plugged in to instantiate a Triangulation_data_structure
use a void
as triangulation data structure parameter. Then, the CGAL::Triangulation_data_structure
uses a rebind mechanism (similar to the one specified in std::allocator
) in order to plug itself as parameter in the full cell and vertex base classes. This mechanism requires that the base class provides a templated nested class Rebind_TDS
that itself provides the subtype Rebind_TDS::Other
which is the rebound version of the base class. This rebound base class is the class that the CGAL::Triangulation_data_structure
actually uses as a base class for the class of CGAL::Triangulation_data_structure::Vertex
.

Types  
typedef unspecified_type  Triangulation_data_structure 
The Triangulation_data_structure in which the vertex is defined/used. More...  
template<typename TDS2 >  
using  Rebind_TDS = unspecified_type 
This nested template class has to define a type Rebind_TDS<TDS2>::Other which is the rebound vertex, that is, the one that will be actually used by Triangulation_data_structure . More...  
Creation  
TriangulationDSVertex ()  
The default constructor (no incident full cell is set).  
TriangulationDSVertex (Full_cell_handle c)  
Sets the incident full cell to c . More...  
Memory Management  
These member functions are required by See the documentation of  
void *  for_compact_container () const 
void *&  for_compact_container () 
using TriangulationDSVertex::Rebind_TDS = unspecified_type 
This nested template class has to define a type Rebind_TDS<TDS2>::Other
which is the rebound vertex, that is, the one that will be actually used by Triangulation_data_structure
.
The Rebind_TDS<TDS2>::Other
type will be the real base class of Triangulation_data_structure::Vertex
.
The Triangulation_data_structure
in which the vertex is defined/used.
Must be a model of the TriangulationDataStructure
concept.
TriangulationDSVertex::TriangulationDSVertex  (  Full_cell_handle  c  ) 
Sets the incident full cell to c
.
c
must not be the defaultconstructed Full_cell_handle
.
