SimpleRAII is a tiny garbage collection helper class that eases the use of the RAII idiom (Resource Acquisition Is Initialization).
When creating a new class, simply subclass the "SimpleRAII " class and encapsulate all non-array "new ..." statements with "manage(new ...)". Do not use any delete statements!
In short the RAII idiom states that it's a good thing when dealing with resource allocation and deallocation in constructors and destructors. In the latter case, code that frees memory is always guaranteed to be executed, when the object is deleted from the stack. So, suppose you write a class MyClass that looks like this:
s = new std::string();
std::string * s;
The pointer variable s is initialized as a string objected on the heap which will deleted when the instance of MyClass runs out of scope. To safe yourself some writing whenever you want to do just that, you can use the SimpleRAII helper class to achieve that same thing. MyClass would then look like this:class MyClass : public SimpleRAII
Here, no destructor is needed anymore.
