Expand description

Wraps a borrowed reference to a value in a RefCell box. A wrapper type for an immutably borrowed value from a RefCell<T>.

See the module-level documentation for more.

Implementations§

Copies a Ref.

The RefCell is already immutably borrowed, so this cannot fail.

This is an associated function that needs to be used as Ref::clone(...). A Clone implementation or a method would interfere with the widespread use of r.borrow().clone() to clone the contents of a RefCell.

Makes a new Ref for a component of the borrowed data.

The RefCell is already immutably borrowed, so this cannot fail.

This is an associated function that needs to be used as Ref::map(...). A method would interfere with methods of the same name on the contents of a RefCell used through Deref.

Examples
use std::cell::{RefCell, Ref};

let c = RefCell::new((5, 'b'));
let b1: Ref<(u32, char)> = c.borrow();
let b2: Ref<u32> = Ref::map(b1, |t| &t.0);
assert_eq!(*b2, 5)
Run

Makes a new Ref for an optional component of the borrowed data. The original guard is returned as an Err(..) if the closure returns None.

The RefCell is already immutably borrowed, so this cannot fail.

This is an associated function that needs to be used as Ref::filter_map(...). A method would interfere with methods of the same name on the contents of a RefCell used through Deref.

Examples
use std::cell::{RefCell, Ref};

let c = RefCell::new(vec![1, 2, 3]);
let b1: Ref<Vec<u32>> = c.borrow();
let b2: Result<Ref<u32>, _> = Ref::filter_map(b1, |v| v.get(1));
assert_eq!(*b2.unwrap(), 2);
Run

Splits a Ref into multiple Refs for different components of the borrowed data.

The RefCell is already immutably borrowed, so this cannot fail.

This is an associated function that needs to be used as Ref::map_split(...). A method would interfere with methods of the same name on the contents of a RefCell used through Deref.

Examples
use std::cell::{Ref, RefCell};

let cell = RefCell::new([1, 2, 3, 4]);
let borrow = cell.borrow();
let (begin, end) = Ref::map_split(borrow, |slice| slice.split_at(2));
assert_eq!(*begin, [1, 2]);
assert_eq!(*end, [3, 4]);
Run
🔬This is a nightly-only experimental API. (cell_leak #69099)

Convert into a reference to the underlying data.

The underlying RefCell can never be mutably borrowed from again and will always appear already immutably borrowed. It is not a good idea to leak more than a constant number of references. The RefCell can be immutably borrowed again if only a smaller number of leaks have occurred in total.

This is an associated function that needs to be used as Ref::leak(...). A method would interfere with methods of the same name on the contents of a RefCell used through Deref.

Examples
#![feature(cell_leak)]
use std::cell::{RefCell, Ref};
let cell = RefCell::new(0);

let value = Ref::leak(cell.borrow());
assert_eq!(*value, 0);

assert!(cell.try_borrow().is_ok());
assert!(cell.try_borrow_mut().is_err());
Run
