mrpt::utils::CThreadSafeQueue< T > Class Template Reference

Detailed Description

template<class T>
class mrpt::utils::CThreadSafeQueue< T >

A thread-safe template queue for object passing between threads; for a template argument of T, the objects being passed in the queue are "T*".

Usage example:

// Declaration:
CThreadSafeQueue<MyMsgType> tsq;
...
// Thread 1: Write
{
MyMsgType *msg = new MyMsgType;
msg->...
tsq.push(msg); // Insert in the queue
}
// Thread 2: Read
{
MyMsgType *msg = tsq.get();
if (msg)
{
// Process "msg"...
delete msg;
}
}

Note that only dynamically allocated objects can be inserted with push() and that freeing that memory if responsibility of the receiver of this queue as it receives objects with get(). However, elements still in the queue upon destruction will be deleted automatically.
