Datum * cyclus::Datum::AddVal ( const char *  field,
boost::spirit::hold_any  val,
std::vector< int > *  shape = NULL 

Add an arbitrary field-value pair to the datum.

fielda label or key for a value. Loosely analogous to a column label.
vala value of any type (int, bool, string, vector) supported by the backends being used.
shapea pointer to a vector of ints that represents the maximum shape for this field. This is only useful for variable length data types such as string and blob. If a shape is provided, this field and value is interpreted as having a fixed length (of the value given). If the pointer is NULL or the entry is less than one (<1), the field is interpreted as inherently variable length, which may affect persistance. This is a vector of ints (a shape) rather than an int (a length) to accomodate nested data types, such as a vector of vectors of doubles or a map of strings to ints. Use NULL as the shape for fixed length data types such as int, float, double, etc.
for the val argument - what variable types are supported depends on what the backend(s) in use are designed to handle.

void cyclus::Datum::Record ( )

Record this datum to its Recorder.

Recorded Datum objects of the same title (e.g. same table) must not contain any fields that were not present in the first datum recorded of that title.

Definition at line 24 of file

const Datum::Shapes & cyclus::Datum::shapes ( )

Returns a vector of all shapes (pointers to vectors of ints) that have been added to this datum.

The length of shapes must match the length of vals.

std::string cyclus::Datum::title ( )

Returns the datum's title as specified during the datum's creation.

Definition at line 40 of file

const Datum::Vals & cyclus::Datum::vals ( )

Returns a vector of all field-value pairs that have been added to this datum.
