Detailed Description

Base class for objects to which Unicode characters and strings can be appended.

Combines elements of Java Appendable and ICU4C ByteSink.

This class can be used in APIs where it does not matter whether the actual destination is a UnicodeString, a char16_t[] array, a UnicodeSet, or any other object that receives and processes characters and/or strings.

Implementation classes must implement at least appendCodeUnit(char16_t). The base class provides default implementations for the other methods.

The methods do not take UErrorCode parameters. If an error occurs (e.g., out-of-memory), in addition to returning FALSE from failing operations, the implementation must prevent unexpected behavior (e.g., crashes) from further calls and should make the error condition available separately (e.g., store a UErrorCode, make/keep a UnicodeString bogus).

virtual UBool icu::Appendable::appendCodePoint ( UChar32  c)
virtual

Appends a code point.

The default implementation calls appendCodeUnit(char16_t) once or twice.

Parameters
ccode point 0..0x10ffff
Returns
TRUE if the operation succeeded

virtual UBool icu::Appendable::appendCodeUnit ( char16_t  c)
pure virtual

Appends a 16-bit code unit.

Parameters
ccode unit
Returns
TRUE if the operation succeeded

virtual UBool icu::Appendable::appendString ( const char16_t *  s,
int32_t  length 
)
virtual

Appends a string.

The default implementation calls appendCodeUnit(char16_t) for each code unit.

Parameters
sstring, must not be NULL if length!=0
lengthstring length, or -1 if NUL-terminated
Returns
TRUE if the operation succeeded

virtual char16_t* icu::Appendable::getAppendBuffer ( int32_t  minCapacity,
int32_t  desiredCapacityHint,
char16_t *  scratch,
int32_t  scratchCapacity,
int32_t *  resultCapacity 
)
virtual

Returns a writable buffer for appending and writes the buffer's capacity to *resultCapacity.

Guarantees *resultCapacity>=minCapacity. May return a pointer to the caller-owned scratch buffer which must have scratchCapacity>=minCapacity. The returned buffer is only valid until the next operation on this Appendable.

After writing at most *resultCapacity char16_ts, call appendString() with the pointer returned from this function and the number of char16_ts written. Many appendString() implementations will avoid copying char16_ts if this function returned an internal buffer.

Partial usage example:

int32_t capacity;
char16_t* buffer = app.getAppendBuffer(..., &capacity);
... Write n char16_ts into buffer, with n <= capacity.
app.appendString(buffer, n);

In many implementations, that call to append will avoid copying char16_ts.

If the Appendable allocates or reallocates an internal buffer, it should use the desiredCapacityHint if appropriate. If a caller cannot provide a reasonable guess at the desired capacity, it should pass desiredCapacityHint=0.

If a non-scratch buffer is returned, the caller may only pass a prefix to it to appendString(). That is, it is not correct to pass an interior pointer to appendString().

The default implementation always returns the scratch buffer.

Parameters
minCapacityrequired minimum capacity of the returned buffer; must be non-negative
desiredCapacityHintdesired capacity of the returned buffer; must be non-negative
scratchdefault caller-owned buffer
scratchCapacitycapacity of the scratch buffer
resultCapacitypointer to an integer which will be set to the capacity of the returned buffer
Returns
a buffer with *resultCapacity>=minCapacity

virtual UBool icu::Appendable::reserveAppendCapacity ( int32_t  appendCapacity)
virtual

Tells the object that the caller is going to append roughly appendCapacity char16_ts.

A subclass might use this to pre-allocate a larger buffer if necessary. The default implementation does nothing. (It always returns TRUE.)

Parameters
appendCapacityestimated number of char16_ts that will be appended
Returns
TRUE if the operation succeeded
