CGAL::Ref_counted< T > Class Template Reference

#include <CGAL/Kinetic/Ref_counted.h>


The class Ref_counted implements a base class for objects which are reference counted.

To use it simply inherit from Ref_counted (passing the type to be reference counted as the template argument) and then access the object through Handle objects rather than bare C++ pointers.


There are no methods which should be called by users of this class.


typedef unspecified_type Handle
 A reference counted pointer to an Object.
typedef unspecified_type Const_handle
 A const reference counted pointer to an Object.


 Ref_counted ()
 default constructor.
