Ease correct lazy initialization of static data in the easy cases.
Often data needs to be initialized once and accessed many times. To do this in a thread-safe way, a mutex is expensive, and basic double-checked locking is not fully thread-safe. The C++ function std::call_once offers the required functionality. The classes CallOnce and CallOnce0 are a little wrappers around this function to call it with 0 or 1 argument.


(Note that this simple case can also be solved with C++11 thread-safe initialization of function statics (can be slightly more efficient).) all under namespace casacore: .h: class A { static std::vector<int> theirSharedInts; static CallOnce theirInitOnce; void initX();

public: int getX(size_t idx); }; .cc: vector<int> A::theirSharedInts(1); CallOnce A::theirInitOnce;

void A::initX(int val) { theirSharedInts[0] = val; }

int A::getX(size_t idx) { theirInitOnce(initX, 42); return; }

CallOnce0: func has 0 args.
