# = delegate -- Support for the Delegation Pattern
#
# Documentation by James Edward Gray II and Gavin Sinclair
##
# This library provides three different ways to delegate method calls to an
# object. The easiest to use is SimpleDelegator. Pass an object to the
# constructor and all methods supported by the object will be delegated. This
# object can be changed later.
#
# Going a step further, the top level DelegateClass method allows you to easily
# setup delegation through class inheritance. This is considerably more
# flexible and thus probably the most common use for this library.
#
# Finally, if you need full control over the delegation scheme, you can inherit
# from the abstract class Delegator and customize as needed. (If you find
# yourself needing this control, have a look at Forwardable which is also in
# the standard library. It may suit your needs better.)
#
# SimpleDelegator's implementation serves as a nice example if the use of
# Delegator:
#
# class SimpleDelegator < Delegator
# def initialize(obj)
# super # pass obj to Delegator constructor, required
# @delegate_sd_obj = obj # store obj for future use
# end
#
# def __getobj__
# @delegate_sd_obj # return object we are delegating to, required
# end
#
# def __setobj__(obj)
# @delegate_sd_obj = obj # change delegation object,
# # a feature we're providing
# end
# end
#
# == Notes
#
# Be advised, RDoc will not detect delegated methods.

# A concrete implementation of Delegator, this class provides the means to

# and even to change the object being delegated to at a later time with
# #__setobj__.
#
# Here's a simple example that takes advantage of the fact that
# SimpleDelegator's delegation object can be changed at any time.
#
# class Stats
# def initialize
# @source = SimpleDelegator.new([])
# end
#
# def stats(records)
# @source.__setobj__(records)
#
# "Elements: #{@source.size}\n" +
# " Non-Nil: #{@source.compact.size}\n" +
# " Unique: #{@source.uniq.size}\n"

# s = Stats.new
# puts s.stats(%w{James Edward Gray II})
# puts
# puts s.stats([1, 2, 3, nil, 4, 5, 1, 2])

# Prints:
#
# Elements: 4
# Non-Nil: 4
# Unique: 4
#
# Elements: 8

#
# It's important to note that this does *not* cause SimpleDelegator's methods
# to change. Because of this, you probably only want to change delegation
# to objects of the same type as the original delegate.
#
# Here's an example of changing the delegation object.

# names = SimpleDelegator.new(%w{James Edward Gray II})

# names.__setobj__(%w{Gavin Sinclair})
