Replace redundant code in FormatManager and FormatCache with templates (NFC)

Authored by aprantl on Dec 9 2019, 4:21 PM.



This is a preparatory patch for an upcoming bugfix.

FormatManager and friends have four identical implementations of many accessor functions to deal with the four types of shared pointers in the FormatCache. This patch replaces these implementations with templates. While this patch drastically reduces the amount of source code and its maintainablity, it doesn't actually improve code size. I'd argue, this is still an improvement.

Not really my area, but it seems reasonable. One thing I'd consider is replacing the functions which return the values through a by-ref argument (e.g. TypeCategoryMap::Get with an actual return value. That'd mean one would have to type out the type in the invocation explicitly instead of relying on template argument deduction, but I don't think that's very useful, as one still has to spell out the type in the variable declaration on the preceding line..

Make (most) of the Get methods return return values, as Pavel suggested.
