Pointer utility crates
erasable: Erase pointers of their concrete type.
rc-borrow: Borrowed forms of
rc-box: Known unique forms of
ptr-union: Pointer unions the size of a pointer.
slice-dst: Support for custom slice-based DSTs.
Triomphe is a great atomic reference counting library!
The main difference between triomphe and these utilities is that
triomphe implements a new
Arc type that doesn't support weak references
(and as such does not have to pay the cost of handling potential weak references),
whereas these pointer utilities use the standard library's reference counting types.
If you need to work with standard library
Rc, triomphe won't work for you.
If you want a more battle-tested library by the servo developers, use triomphe. If you want small, self-contained extensions to the standard library types, use these pointer utilities.
Additionally, triomphe only supports atomic reference counting.
We provide support for both
Rc, as well as
Box where applicable.
Minimum Supported Rust Version
We require a minimum Rust version of 1.41.0. This is for an adjustment of local trait impl checking.
The minimum version of Rust will only be incremented with minor version bumps, not patch version bumps, and will be deliberate and clearly noted in change notes.

If you are a highly paid worker at any company that prioritises profit over people, you can still use this crate. I simply wish you will unionise and push back against the obsession for growth, control, and power that is rampant in your workplace. Please take a stand against the horrible working conditions they inflict on your lesser paid colleagues, and more generally their disrespect for the very human rights they claim to fight for.
