Detailed Description

template<class O>
struct IMP::UncheckedWeakPointer< O >

A weak pointer to an Object or RefCountedObject.

WeakPointers do not do reference counting and do not claim ownership of the pointed object. As a result, they can be used to break cycles in reference counted pointers. For example, since an IMP::Model contains a reference counted pointer to an IMP::Particle, the IMP::Particle has a WeakPointer back to the IMP::Model.

The UncheckedWeakPointer can act on types that have only been partially defined. You probably should use a WeakPointer instead if you don't have problems with it.
