Differences between Qt cast and normal cast (and some questions about it)
Mihan last edited by Mihan
I want to know the differences between the cast like
e.g. some protocols' API will need `uint8_t*` param: `bool writedata(uint8_t* data);` but the data type from qt `QByteArray` is `char*`
some blogs say that it's unsafe to use
reinterpret_cast. Could you tell me how to use these casts?I can't find the information about this in wiki
the absolutely clean way is indeed to have a
uint8_t bufferand to
QByteArraycontents to it.
But if your API takes a
const uint8_t *datapointer, I'd indeed go with
QByteArray ba = "..."; const uint8_t *data = reinterpret_cast<const uint8_t *>(ba.constData());
Note that functions non-const parameters (
uint8_t *data) might modify the data, which can lead to unexpected side effects of any kind when they operate on the byte array data.
Out of curiosity, what Qt cast do you have in mind ? Is see only C/C++ cast in your post.
