Function std::ptr::swap_nonoverlapping

pub unsafe fn swap_nonoverlapping<T>(x: *mut T, y: *mut T, count: usize)

Swaps count * size_of::<T>() bytes between the two regions of memory beginning at x and y. The two regions must not overlap.

Safety

Behavior is undefined if any of the following conditions are violated:

  • Both x and y must be valid for reads and writes of count * size_of::<T>() bytes.

  • Both x and y must be properly aligned.

  • The region of memory beginning at x with a size of count * size_of::<T>() bytes must not overlap with the region of memory beginning at y with the same size.

Note that even if the effectively copied size (count * size_of::<T>()) is 0, the pointers must be non-NULL and properly aligned.

Examples

Basic usage:

use std::ptr;

let mut x = [1, 2, 3, 4];
let mut y = [7, 8, 9];

unsafe {
    ptr::swap_nonoverlapping(x.as_mut_ptr(), y.as_mut_ptr(), 2);
}

assert_eq!(x, [7, 8, 3, 4]);
assert_eq!(y, [1, 2, 9]);
