pointer_safety Enumeration

The enumeration of possible values returned by get_pointer_safety.

class pointer_safety { relaxed, preferred, strict };


The scoped enum defines the values that can be returned by get_pointer_safety``():

relaxed -- pointers not safely derived (obviously pointers to declared or allocated objects) are treated the same as those safely derived.

preferred -- as before, but pointers not safely derived should not be dereferenced.

strict -- pointers not safely derived might be treated differently than those safely derived.
