glutil::UniqueShader Class Reference

#include <Shader.h>

Inherits noncopyable.

RAII object for managing a shader object.

This object manages the lifetime of a shader object. It represents a uniquely-owned shader object. It is implicitly convertible to GLuint, so you can use it more or less wherever you used a GLuint before.

It is explicitly non-copyable. C++11 would eventually allow move-semantics, but that's not widely available enough to directly support. If you need to transfer ownership, it is swappable, so you'll have to make due with using `swap`.

This RAII-style class makes it easy to be exception-safe with shader objects.

: Implement C++11 move semantics.

Member Function Documentation

GLuint glutil::UniqueShader::release ( )

Abandons ownership of the currently-owned shader object.

After calling this function, the shader object will be unowned. It will not have been destroyed.
