NAME
       QDeepCopy - Template class which ensures that

SYNOPSIS
       All the functions in this class are reentrant when Qt is built with thread support.</p>

       #include <qdeepcopy.h>

   Public Members
       QDeepCopy ()
       QDeepCopy ( const T & t )
       QDeepCopy<T> & operator= ( const T & t )
       operator T ()

DESCRIPTION
       The QDeepCopy class is a template class which ensures that implicitly shared and
       explicitly shared classes reference unique data.

       Normally, shared copies reference the same data to optimize memory use and for maximum
       speed. In the example below, s1, s2, s3, s4 and s5 share data.

	   // all 5 strings share the same data
	   QString s1 = "abcd";
	   QString s2 = s1;
	   QString s3 = s2;
	   QString s4 = s3;
	   QString s5 = s2;

       QDeepCopy can be used several ways to ensure that an object references unique, unshared
       data. In the example below, s1, s2 and s5 share data, while neither s3 nor s4 share data.

	   // s1, s2 and s5 share the same data, neither s3 nor s4 are shared
	   QString s1 = "abcd";
	   QString s2 = s1;
	   QDeepCopy<QString> s3 = s2;	// s3 is a deep copy of s2
	   QString s4 = s3;		// s4 is a deep copy of s3
	   QString s5 = s2;

       In the example below, s1, s2 and s5 share data, and s3 and s4 share data.

	   // s1, s2 and s5 share the same data, s3 and s4 share the same data
	   QString s1 = "abcd";
	   QString s2 = s1;
	   QString s3 = QDeepCopy<QString>( s2 );  // s3 is a deep copy of s2
	   QString s4 = s3;			   // s4 is a shallow copy of s3
	   QString s5 = s2;

       QDeepCopy can also provide safety in multithreaded applications that use shared classes.
       In the example below, the variable global_string is used safely since the data contained
       in global_string is always a deep copy. This ensures that all threads get a unique copy of
       the data, and that any assignments to global_string will result in a deep copy.

	   QDeepCopy<QString> global_string;  // global string data
	   QMutex global_mutex; 	      // mutex to protext global_string
	   ...
	   void setGlobalString( const QString &str )
	   {
	       global_mutex.lock();
	       global_string = str;	      // global_string is a deep copy of str
	       global_mutex.unlock();
	   }
	   ...
	   void MyThread::run()
	   {
	       global_mutex.lock();
	       QString str = global_string;	     // str is a deep copy of global_string
	       global_mutex.unlock();
	       // process the string data
	       ...
	       // update global_string
	       setGlobalString( str );
	   }

       Warning: It is the application developer's responsibility to protect the object shared
       across multiple threads.

       The examples above use QString, which is an implicitly shared class. The behavior of
       QDeepCopy is the same when using explicitly shared classes like QByteArray.

       Currently, QDeepCopy works with the following classes:

       QMemArray (including subclasses like QByteArray and QCString)

       QMap

       QString

       QValueList (including subclasses like QStringList and QValueStack)

       QValueVector

       See also Thread Support in Qt, Implicitly and Explicitly Shared Classes, and Non-GUI
       Classes.

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QDeepCopy::QDeepCopy ()
       Constructs an empty instance of type T.

QDeepCopy::QDeepCopy ( const T & t )
       Constructs a deep copy of t.

QDeepCopy::operator T ()
       Returns a deep copy of the encapsulated data.

QDeepCopy<;T> & QDeepCopy::operator= ( const T & t )
       Assigns a deep copy of t.
