Expand description

A wrapper handling an SHM memory pool backed by a shared memory file

This wrapper handles for you the creation of the shared memory file and its synchronization with the protocol.

Mempool internally tracks the release of the buffers by the compositor. As such, creating a buffer that is not commited to a surface (and then never released by the server) would cause the Mempool to be stuck believing it is still in use.

Mempool will also handle the destruction of buffers and as such the destroy() method should not be used on buffers created from Mempool.

Overwriting the contents of the memory pool before it is completely freed may cause graphical glitches due to the possible corruption of data while the compositor is reading it.

Mempool requires a callback that will be called when the pool becomes free, this happens when all the pools buffers are released by the server.

Create a new memory pool associated with given shm

Resize the memory pool

This affect the size as it is seen by the wayland server. Even if you extend the temporary file size by writing to it, you need to call this method otherwise the server won’t see the new size.

Memory pools can only be extented, as such this method will do nothing if the requested new size is smaller than the current size.

This method allows you to ensure the underlying pool is large enough to hold what you want to write to it.

Create a new buffer to this pool

The parameters are:

  • offset: the offset (in bytes) from the beginning of the pool at which this buffer starts
  • width: the width of this buffer (in pixels)
  • height: the height of this buffer (in pixels)
  • stride: distance (in bytes) between the beginning of a row and the next one
  • format: the encoding format of the pixels. Using a format that was not advertised to the wl_shm global by the server is a protocol error and will terminate your connection

Uses the memmap2 crate to map the underlying shared memory file

Returns true if the pool contains buffers that are currently in use by the server
