Constructor & Destructor Documentation
as2js::NodeLock::NodeLock ( Node::pointer_t  node)

This constructor is used to lock a node within a scope.

NodeLock lock(my_node);
} // auto-unlock here

Note that the unlock() function can be used to prematuraly unlock a node. It is very important to use the unlock() function of the NodeLock() otherwise it will attempt to unlock the node again when it gets out of scope (although that bug will be caught).

NodeLock lock(my_node);
} // already unlocked...

The function accepts a null pointer as parameter. This is useful in many situation where we do not know whether the node is null and it would make it complicated to have to check.

[in]nodeThe node to be locked.

as2js::NodeLock::~NodeLock ( )

The destructor of the NodeLock object ensures that the node passed as a parameter to the constructor gets unlocked.

If the pointer was null or the unlock() function was called early, nothing happens.

Member Function Documentation
void as2js::NodeLock::unlock ( )

This function can be used to unlock a node before the end of a scope is reached. There are cases where that may be necessary.

Note that this function is also called by the destructor. To avoid a double unlock on a node, the function sets the node pointer to null before returning. This means this function can safely be called any number of times and the lock counter of the node will remain valid.
