Rust Field Offset: Safe pointer-to-member functionality for Rust

field-offset: safe pointer-to-member functionality

This crate implements an offset_of!(...) macro which safely encapsulates a pointer-to-member.

Example:

struct Foo {
    x: u32,
    y: f64
}

let foo_y = offset_of!(Foo => y);

let mut a = Foo { x: 1, y: 2.0 };

*foo_y.apply_mut(&mut a) = 3.0;

assert!(a.y == 3.0);

The macro returns an instance of FieldOffset<T, U>, which represents a pointer to a field of type U within a containing type, T.

The FieldOffset type implements Add. Applying the resulting field offset is equivalent to applying the first field offset, then applying the second field offset.

The macro also supports accessing nested fields:

let bar_foo_y = offset_of!(Bar => foo: Foo => y);
