Detailed Description

This Functor simply takes an object and reverses its byte representation.

This is useful for changing endian-ness for file IO. This class has been tested on x86 architectures with 4-byte words.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ ReverseBytes()

libMesh::Utility::ReverseBytes::ReverseBytes ( const bool  dr)


Takes a bool, determines if we will actually do byte reversing.

326 {}
const bool _do_reverse

Member Function Documentation

◆ operator()()

template<typename T >
T libMesh::Utility::ReverseBytes::operator() ( T &  data) const


Takes the data to reverse and performs the byte-ordering reversal.

Definition at line 331 of file utility.h.

References data, reverse(), and swap().

332 {
333  // Possibly reverse the byte ordering
334  if (this->reverse())
335  {
336  unsigned char * b = (unsigned char *) &data;
338  int i=0;
339  int j=(sizeof(T) - 1);
341  while (i < j)
342  {
343  std::swap (b[i], b[j]);
344  i++; j--;
345  }
346  }
348  return data;
349 }
void swap(Iterator &lhs, Iterator &rhs)
swap, used to implement op=
IterBase * data
Ideally this private member data should have protected access.

bool libMesh::Utility::ReverseBytes::reverse ( ) const
The value of the reverse flag.
