Detailed Description

C++ API: "Smart pointers" for use with and in ICU4C C++ code.

These classes are inspired by

but none of those provide for all of the goals for ICU smart pointers:

Macro Definition Documentation

§ U_DEFINE_LOCAL_OPEN_POINTER

#define U_DEFINE_LOCAL_OPEN_POINTER (   LocalPointerClassName,
  Type,
  closeFunction 
)

"Smart pointer" definition macro, deletes objects via the closeFunction.

Defines a subclass of LocalPointerBase which works just like LocalPointer<Type> except that this subclass will use the closeFunction rather than the C++ delete operator.

Usage example:

LocalUCaseMapPointer csm(ucasemap_open(localeID, options, &errorCode));
utf8OutLength=ucasemap_utf8ToLower(csm.getAlias(),
utf8Out, (int32_t)sizeof(utf8Out),
utf8In, utf8InLength, &errorCode);
if(U_FAILURE(errorCode)) { return; } // no need to explicitly delete the UCaseMap
